I just bought an Elgato Game Capture HD device that will let me record or stream video game play and my fucking Xbox 360 dies the very next day.

I'm planning on starting up a YouTube channel doing game reviews, commentary, and other stuff, but I keep hitting setbacks like this.

Lucky me, the Xbox 360's are fairly cheap now, but I would still rather not have to spend the money on something that I already own.

I'm still not sure how an XBox can just die. It's like they have an expiration date.

They're poorly made.

The on board RAM and graphics chips become unseated over time due to the heat inside the XBox.

The systems needed better cooling and better chip placement.

Oh yeah, I remember helping a coworker reflow the solder on his xbox board a couple of years ago.
