I took the plunge and bought an XBox. Since Best Buy had the DVD controller for $10 off, I went there. I got the usual "Would you like to buy a Service Plan" speach. But what stuck was both the salesperson and cashier said "We've seen a lot of XBox's come back." I suspect this was just BS to pressure me to buy the PSP. (I did have the fantasy of sounding suprised, asking for the manager and loudly/enthusiastically thanking them for talking me out of buying a shoddy product ) When I got home I saw the $49 Microsoft Extended Warrenty. So now I am having second thoughts. Are there any known reliability issues with a non-abused XBox? Anyone actually get the Microsoft warrenty & use it? How does one go about getting updates to the bios/rom inside the box? Should I consider the warrenty just for this?
