    Xbox360 question

    Alright, I just got my brand new Xbox360, and to keep things safe.

    How long should I use the Xbox360, then stop, to keep it from over-heating?

    It doesn't matter. If you leave it on for too long (7-10 hours) your game might freeze. he newer 360's have anti-freeze technology, where it will turn off it's major functions for a minute or two to cool off, and that messes with games.
    I'm gay.

    Nah, don't listen to the retards. I sometimes fall asleep with the xbox 360 on all night. Nothing happens. I've played it for like 7 hours and then fell asleep with it on.

    Your xbox will go when it wants to go. No matter how long its on for. Luckily microsoft extened their warrenty on parts and service for the 360 to a year (from the original 90 days).

    You can be a simple attachment that slots onto the back of the 360 which adds extra fans too it, its like 9.99 here might be worth looking into. Ive had my 360 on 24 hours idle then played it the next day still was fine.

    Yeah, I've seen that before and have taken it into consideration.
