Ok...first step.

Extremely lengthly conversation with customer service.

Next

This jackass makes us spend $20 on shipping to send...just the power cord...not the console to TEXAS! First off... we're having to PAY for this... second... why hell do we send it to Texas when I live in Ontario? I of coarse didn't actually ask this since I just assume that CUSTOMER SERVICE KNOWS WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT....

Or do they?

Now it's been an entire month and our f^*#ing power cord is still not home. So I call customer service. I ask them for the status of my power cord, he says,"Oh that shouldn't of been sent to Texas... that should have been sent to Toronto." Oh....thanks a lot ass hole. He says it arrived in texas seven days after we sent it... they said they would send us a new cord as soon as ours got to them. 15 days later we have no power cord, how retarded can you be?

So now I'm a week into the last month of summer with absolutely no 360 to play...or, no. A 360 without a power cord to play it, now it's just teasing me. To make on the brink of murdering some random pedestrian, this jack hole tells me they will send a free power cord in a box from Toronto which should be about 3-5 days...then if the 360 still doesn't work we send in the whole console in a box they provide, and they pay for(oh great, so the first ass had no idea of what he was talking about I guess). The console repair should take 3-4 weeks... GREAT...

There goes August! That's awesome! My family goes camping for 10 days starting 2 days after school ends and I finally get the great relief of being to play the 360 again...I am on for about 5 minutes... just start playing Missile Command... the new XBLA title at the time and BOOM.... my soul is stolen from me. Worst part is I have nothing to look forward to for waiting for my power cord to get here(expected any day now) because during the amount of time that Texas wasn't sending me my power cord I brought my friend's power cord over and still same issues.

******UPDATE********
--------------------
The Purolator has sent us a box with a sheet detailing the instructions for us on how to ship our 360 I think about a week ago.. I've lost track but we didn't get the power cord so I couldn't even get to play it for the five minutes that it usually did before getting red ringed to hell... so I predict that a power cord will arrive here shortly so I will have a power cord... hard drive... 360 games... wireless adapter but no console.. Awesome.

It is expected back around one to two weeks prior to Halo 3's release... whoa, that was close.
