If the freezing/locking issues in chromehounds are caused by over heating consoles and bad components, why is it that I am able to play PD0/BF2/CoD2 online still without any issue?
If my console was going out, shouldn't it be going out with all games, and not just one in particular?

My console worked great, no issues. I could play GRAW, PGR3 no problem whatsoever. BC games, sure no problem.
Then I got PDZ, and it locked up constantly. I thought the same thing... Why do all my other games work and it's just this one game if there's really a problem?
I took the game back for a new copy... same thing.
I took the box back (it was less than 30 days so I just exchanged it at Best Buy) and got a new one. All my games work perfectly now, except for chromehounds... but the issues i'm experiencing are explained in one of the techinical support posts and it's not a hardware issue.
So it is possible to have a hardware issue and not know it until a specific game brings it to light. My previous console, the issue was overheating. The test I did was: Play PDZ until the console locked... IMMEDIATELY put in PGR3 and play. When I did that, PGR3 would be full of video artifacts and other graphics problems.

because every game on xbox is coded differently. obviously fps games that run on the same engine are similar, but you're trying to compare apples to oranges.
please understand that each game handles the network it runs on differently. Also, sega has servers we connect to, another point of failure (that may or may not happen).

It is possible that all of this is a coincidence, and I am just stuck with a bad 360 box that fortunantly is still able to play all my other games without issue. I will agree with that.
But something becomes more then coincidental when the numbers warrent it. I am not sure how many people complained that PD0 was locking up there system, but I know the number of chromehounds issues are growing.
