Hello fellow Geeks!

I brought the new Microsoft Xbox 360 250GB two days ago. Since I don't own the new Call of Duty or Battlefield yet, I thought I might play some Call of Duty MW2. While playing the game for 1hour and 40 minutes odd, I noticed that the case was hot where I'm thinking the CPU or Graphics is (Rest of the case is cool). Now call me paranoid, but is this normal? I'd hate to waste £170 on a console that I thought wouldn't break as quick as the older consoles.

It will be fine as long as its not sat on carpet and has plenty of air getting to it.

CPUs and GPUs do tend to get hot you know.

It's pretty well ventilated and off the ground so it ain't touching the carpet. But if you say it will be fine, then I'll take your word for it.

Thanks, man.
