My Xbox 360 red-ringed the week before Halo Reach launched. As a poor college student at the time (now I'm just not a college student), I didn't have the money for a new console. But I was livid, especially since the RRoD was such a major issue and Microsoft really, really did not take responsibility for their sh*tty manufacturing as they should have. Anyways, after ten minutes of politely explaining to the Microsoft phone representative with less-than-ideal English skills that the whole incident left a sour taste in my mouth and that I was about to purchase a PS3 instead (in order words, I verbally harassed him for 10 minutes - no shame here.), I asked for his supervisor, and repeated everything to him. The guy finally cut me off mid-sentence and told me they'd fix my console free of charge, even though it was a month or two out of warranty.

Now, disclaimer: You should totally be nice to these people. It's not their fault that your console broke. It's also somehow not Microsoft's fault that their lousy manufacturing resulted in the premature expiration of your console. So you should be a responsible person and buy a new console. You know. All that stuff.

;) YMMV.
