    [SE] I have a question.

    Would it be possible to scam Microsoft/XBOX to get a new XBOX?
    I still have my XBOX here, but I filed for a repair.

    Is it possible to scam a new one for myself somehow, so that I can keep both.

    Only gifted SE'rs, no speculations.
    I can also speculate, but that's not why I came here.

    Make up a story that your xbox stopped working for no reason, they will ask to send it back, send a box filled with shit, they will recieve the shit and say: that they recieved it, you start raging and tell them that the post office must have swapped or stolen it, they will probably send you a new xbox.

    That is actually pretty clever.
    The shit must weigh in at the same for me to have credibility too.

    Thanks.

    However, I'd still like more help.

    Buy a cheap, broken/faulty xbox of ebay. Box it up and send it off.
    In the long run you'll make profit.

    Most of the broken xbox'es on ebay come without a warranty you must have a warranty if you are going to pull something like that. They always ask for the warranty code or something like that.

    Most likely not. Microsoft will be very hard to SE.

    Just steal one from a store or something, nobody gives a fuck about A XBOX anymore, or just convert to PS4.
    Credits go to Invalid_Username. Thanks bro!

    I'm going to speculate anyways, since it's free and this is an interesting topic.
    What should happen:
    1. Your Xbox broke, and you contact support
    2. Support wants you to send it to them
    3a. You tell them you threw it away.
    3b. You tell them it melted down, and the post office won't take it, cuz of poison dangers, cuz the battery and shit leaks(kinda wierd, but it seems to work)
    3c. You send the Xbox(well, nope)
    3d. You send them a box of junk

    I would go with 3b or 3d.

    Don't try to SE an Xbox One with a VCC, the will keep trying to charge it 550$ and when it doesn't work, they will call you and threaten to file a lawsuit if
    you don't return the Xbox, some people got arrested
    Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.

    To sum it up if I was unclear.
    I have an XBOX360, it's operational, but I don't trust the DVD-Drive as it recently broke a newly purchased game and I'm not quite interested in putting any more games into it.

    What my train of thought behind this was, as it is still in warranty and they have agreed to take it and repair it or whatever they do - I figured.
    After more or less having to sit for several hours bouncing around their poor customer support with their default responses to everything and the feeling of hopelessness you get when you have to talk with the retards on their end that barely knows English and then get bounced around some more.

    I said, well fuck this.
    Not only will they not replace the game THEIR device broke (I say this because I cannot without breaking their EULA, modify my XBOX to have a proper and working DVD-Drive without being banned from XBL or the like), they made it a real hassle, they wasted a shitton of my time and I wont have it.

    So that being said I thought to myself, well, since the drive is shotty (what a surprise), then maybe I can get a completely new device instead and keep the old one and possibly flash/chip or mod it to my liking and be able to play pirated games on it and then have the new one to play online if I ever felt like it, or just sell the old one to have a fund for a rainy day.

    Still hanging in there?



    Summing it up, two xboxes are better than one, if I can get another one and keep the old one and flash it to play pirated games, that'd be great. Mkay.
    If I don't keep it, I can sell the other one off for money.

    I don't think I need to develop this thought any further, a light should have gone up for the rest of you.


    -------------


    As for the warranty, it's connected to an account, connected to a serial that can be found on the back of a device.
    Not sure if the devices are branded, so sending a broken one back in a box, even with my sticker, might not work.

    Probably if they don't find the xbox in the box they will ban the xbox so yeah, you could win and at the same time lose I guess.

    That's why I'm waiting for someone who has experience with this to stroll along to drop some knowledge on me.
    Although, people have a hard time sharing.
