Forget about the scratching issues, they are rare, what about the fact that half of the DVD rom drives fail to open when the console is vertical? I've flashed quite a few systems and nearly every one with a Samsung drive has opening issues. How was this not mentioned in the last thread or this one?
Seriously, I feel like i'm the only person to experience this in a huge way.
why would one put their console vertical?

I choose lack of media type support, but thats not exactly accurate to what I wanted.
MS hype up the 360 with its XBLA/Video/Music/Game services, But I live in Australia, and the XBL Video Marketplace is well, crap, really. Right now, if I go to "All TV Shows" I get, "Artist of the Month" (Which has 3 songs, all of which are terrible), "Digital Entertainment" (containing ONLY the HD-DVD Player Promos), "Robbie Williams-Concert (ick.)" and "Viva Pinata, The Animated Series"
Yet, I see on the US XBL, I see 199 TV shows, movie hire, episode purchases, tons of stuff we can't get on DVD here, demos for games we never even see. In all, I see what the Marketplace is SUPPOSED to be about.
Because Australia isn't deemed a "major" market, we miss out on 99% of that kinda stuff.

What did Australia ever do to deserve such treatment? Actually Australia did get all that content but your government has banned most of it.

Al tho i think developers would love the chance to go wild with 18 or even 32gb of space per game (internal hd) and prices for accessories are way to high (come on $100 for a 20gb hdd i can find them for under $20)
i went with poor quality headsets because I'm on my 7th wired headset now and my rfboard has been named incorrectly and needs to be replaced so i cant use wireless.
ya well its not like there trying to compete with xbmc or anything, it would be nice to see some divx support tho.
everyone hates dealing with M$ customer support and rrod is a problem that occurs in at least %35 of all 360.
What do you do with your headsets that cause them to break?
I for one have no idea what you are talking about with Microsoft customer support. Sony customer support is awful, it's like calling Australia.

I cant see m$ allowing games that require a hdd to pass certification.
