Something (else) gave

A short and (not so) sweet one from me, an ode to consoles lost.

Alas, it seems my rather optimistic post had come too soon. My Wii was already lost by this point, and now another mechanical beauty has fallen. Those of you who have me added on Facebook will already know, but there was a battle of finances vs. consoles and sadly, one of my consoles lost.

Goodbye, Xbox 360. You’d been with me for almost two years. While my friends’ consoles red ringed and fell to the ground, you held fast. You were there. Never flinching, never failing, never even scratching a disk.

I’ll miss you!


Just before the trade-in.

    Aw man. I feel your pain. That’s the one thing that is keeping me from sending in my console or just getting a new one–finances.

    Maybe when things get better, you can get another one. Still will miss seeing you on Live.

    There is only one thing to do. Don your best anarchy outfit, dye your hair, don’t shower and follow the other demonstrators who can’t stand the G20. Throw plasma screens, break windows and beat up city people. It will male you feel better. Bloody credit crunch.

    One day… I’ll have another. Maybe by then Microsoft will have listened to my demands for a pink console.
    Van – I think your idea is perfect. I’LL GO GET THE HAIR DYE!
