Xbox / customer support

1 63 prairie falcon Aliso Viejo, CA, United States Review updated:

I called X-Box so called customer support to get a repair for my console and was told that I needed to have the power supply available to troubleshoot it. I had already gone through the steps with another rep past and I said, no, I know what I need, I just need this fixed. I told her furthermore that I had already been through the whole troubleshooting page on and she still refused. I then asked to be escalated to a supervisor. The supervisor was even worse and she tried to treat me like a little child with her tone of voice, like I was stupid and she was smart. This really infuriated me but I kept myself very collected and told her that I'd already been over this like 1000 times with the service rep. Guess what she said next?!!? She said, sir I read the notes I don't think its been 1000 yet. She was being a smartass and this sent me over the edge, I asked her one more time to help me and she said that she would not help me get my xbox repaired and now there are notes on my name. I hung up on her. That was the worst customer service experience I've ever had from someone who considers themselves to be a supervisor-level employee. I've never wanted someone to be written-up more than this lady. I wish there was some way to let the person whom she reports to know how she is to customers. Don't buy X-Box because if you ever need assistance you'll only find grie[censored]

    The one constant in the video game market and video game wars is the death of older systems. As technology advances and bigger, better things can be done, developers and publishers rely more on new systems for better games and more revenue.
    Is it fair? Only in the sense that the game developers are able to provide us (usually) with higher-quality games. It's not entirely fair to consumers when console manufacturers cram their systems full of all sorts of expensive, high-end equipment and force us to pay ridiculous price tags to jump on the new wagon. Game consoles that can keep the lower price tag will be more appealing.

    I feel your pain with the latest batch of new consoles, as two of the three require an upgrade to more than the game console itself, often requiring high-definition televisions to make the games playable, but again, as technology advances, so must we. I doubt you're still playing NES games on a nine inch black and white television. That generation died a long time ago.

    New games are not made for old systems because those systems cannot handle the games. If you want new games, you need a new system. If you want to keep playing on your old system(s), then take the time to find the best games for your system(s) that have been released already.

    When playing guitar hero 3 legends of rock fo xbox 360 my console scratched the disc. the disc is now unreadable and i have contacted the retailer who said it is microsoft or your responsibility to replace the broken product. i have tried microsoft who claim no responsibility and were most unhelpful. they say it is your responsibility to replace the damaged item. i hope you will be more helpfull than them.
    looking forward to a positive solution to my problem.

    Xbox - pulling the plug on live

    I have been playing xbox live for some time now.. and most games dont give you the chance to plug because there is no reason.. but NBA live does.. i dont know how many times ive been winning a game late in the 4 n lose the connection.. after everything workin fine before then.. or with 8 sec.s left the other player pause n "lose connection" . it makes it so i dont even want to play.. whats the sense if u can plug.. they should either lose the game.. or some type of rating be by their name to show if they plug.. whether its on purpose or not.. because who wants to play someone that is going to plug if they lose.. or usually have a bad connection??

    i had a supervisor hang up on me cause i asked to speak to his boss, what they did was have me send in my hard drive and it turned out that it wasn't the problem it was the console again so i had to send that in as well now they received the hard drive on the 9th and said they would be sending it out and to call in about 3-5 business days and get the tracking number today i called for the third time and they still haven't shipped it they said they didn't know anything about it on my first call and i told them i was going to take them to court cause i had the confirmation from ups that they received it and amazingly they found it, the second time i called they said the same thing but that it was being processed and that i have to call back in about 3-5 days to get the tracking number. i just called them again and they said that it wasn't shipped and to call back in another 3-5 days again to get the tracking number. it was their mistake and i get screwed for it THE HELL WITH XBOX

    Use a disc doctor! I swear, it fixed all my games that got damaged by my 360. A little tip, lay your Xbox flat on the ground, and use a cooler for it. When you have the Box standing straight up, it can make horrible scratches if it wobbles even a little bit.

    I contacted customer support last month and this month to cancel service. All I wanted to do was to have my credit card number removed. Needless to say no one at customer support can do this. The website does not let you do this either. I finally found out that there is an 'escalation team' that can do this and it takes up to five days to have your card number removed. I will NEVER recommend XBox, Zune or anyother product from them. And the topper of all this...they won't refund my money this month after cancelling the service over 30 days ago. Can you say RIPOFF!
