    Im going to be getting the X Box

    in 2 weeks. I would like to get a warranty

    for a year on it. I was at toysrus today and

    they told me you cant buy extended warranty.

    Their warranty is only 9 weeks. This is a concern

    to me because If Im paying big money for these

    two systems I would like to make sure they will

    both work. The game cube I really have no worries

    about it since nintendo is been around.

    It's X-Box that draws my attention, since I

    heard at launch there has been some problems on the

    inital release. There new to the game console

    industry so this is why Im concerned a bit. I

    would just like to have a year warranty to be

    secure. So I was wondering if anyone out there

    in Toronto, who has bought one or is looking

    knows of any store I can get this option?.

    I got a extended warranty on my Discmen this

    year at Future Shop. So I think I might be

    able to do this there but Im not sure yet.

    Anyways that's it. Thanks For Reading.

    -Mike

    What's the MS warranty on it-a year? If something's going to break, I'd assume it'd be in the manufacturer's waranty period. In the case of the Xbox, I've heard of a couple of manufacturing defects that you should be able to identify quite easily (no sound etc.), which would mean a straight exchange of a defective unit.

    Buy it from Future Shop. That's what I did, along with the 2 year extended warranty for $50 as previously mentioned in this thread.

    I forgot to mention that the warranty from Futureshop includes the controllers. So if any of your controllers decide to die on you, just walk into FS and they'll give you a straight exchange.
