I think it overheated and died. Does anyone have the clip-on extra fans you can get and are they noisy?

why Germany? Just phone MS and they'll collect it and repair it FOC. The new motherboards are a lot better now.

Yeah, they came and collected mine and took it to the repair centre in Havant. Which was in Hampshire the last time I checked, not Germany.

Ok, with the price drop and Fable 2 coming up I'm going for the 360. Getting the 60 gig premium version so apart from the basic stuff that comes with it, what else will I need?

Thinking the headset, the wireless adapter (or is there something unofficial and cheaper?), another controller maybe

Anything else?
