Jealous Xbox 360?

I got back yesterday from my trip to visit my friend JR and his family. (more on that later)

One of the items that I sprung on the family was a brand new Xbox 360 system. After watching Jr get it all hooked up, (which btw was enjoyable, see.. he needs glasses to see the small stuff now) I gave a slight demo of some of its basic features for the rest of that day.

The next day we all loaded up in Darth and headed to the local Best Buy. While there, I snagged the wireless network adapter so that I could show them Xbox Live and get them all started in that arena too. (a slight adjustment to the MTU on the linksys router was needed)

Needless to say, the new console system was a big hit. The whole darn family was just getting a kick out of the downloadable demos from the Arcade section, not to mention being able to stream pictures and mp3’s too along with a ton of other stuff.

Myself I picked up Oblivion since there has been a lot of jibber jabber about this game and since I don’t have an RPG on the 360, I bought it. I recovered my XBOX Live game tag on their console and started playing. (no issues)

When I got home, I thought I would pick up where I left off and while in the middle of re-recovering my GameTag I was greeted with some some crazy graphics and the above image. I quickly got on the phone to Microsoft and it will take a couple of weeks to get the refurbished one here.

The only thing that I can figure is that my machine was pissed off since I played on another machine, Microsoft had no comment when I called their ‘support’ line.
