    You could always try the towel trick, Link

    I haven't tried it myself but some of my friends have and they said it gave them an extra couple of weeks before it happened again. It may give you enough time to trade it in for a new one

    obviously PC is better due to the hardware init but i simply cant afford a super PC then buy another super part it needs when a new game comes out that needs this super part for the game to work properly lol

    im not too fussed on how many frames a second the graphics are. as long as the game is good(which they always are) on the console then im cool. yes i would like to experience what a super PC looks like whilst playing battlefield 3 in a 64 player map but im cool with my Xbox yall which is the next best thing to a super PC
