The X-Box 360?

I just got an X-Box 360 for Christmas... I am having a little bit of trouble with it... It likes to shut off as I am playing Halo... I don't know why, but the little light on the power cord box keeps turning from orange to red... It keeps doing this and I cannot play it that well... When that light turns red, the 360 shuts off... I have it directly connected to the wall... no surge protector... Any help?

Update:

When I first plug it in, it has an orange light... When the system is on... It's green... Then turns red and the X-Box turns off...

    Power Supply sounds like it is either overheating or is faulty. I would suggest giving the warranty department a call and having them get you a new one. Or take back the whole thing from where it was purchased and get a swap for a new one.

  • Electronics only auto shut off to prevent damage to hardware, like a short or over heating...

    if you can, return it to the store purchased. if they no longer accept exchanges. follow the instructions for its warranty and replacement agreement.
