    Get a PS3...

    A lot of 360's break, thought you would have known that seeing as you own one and alas, look what happened! you just joined the other 33% of buyers that have had there 360 break

    But, what do you mean it overheats? Does it overheat and turn off? Does it overheat and... stay overheated? can you still use it?

    What do you mean it goes straight to overheating? i don't own a 360 so i don't know what happens? does it turn itself off?

    Do you have it in a space that isn't cluttered or blocking the air vents?? Had an overheating issue with my daughters' two years ago when it first came out. Decided to lay it down flat instead of on it's side and it seemed to work. The unit is still working today and she plays it about 2-3 hours a day. If this doesn't work, then the fan inside has died.

    The only issue i have had with my PS3 is the game might freeze and u cant quit and you get a tripple beep.

    no issues with the 360...Make sure the device has room to breathe

    Try buying on of those 3rd party cooling systems for it if the console actually turns on and is still possible to use if it weren't overheating
