Is my XBOX 360 about to die?

    I should first mention that the console is a launch day version and has never been faulty and considering the amount of people I know who have gone through numbers of replacements I think I have been very lucky...

    But last night while on COD online, the console crashed and the screen just displaced lots of black and white lines, had to reset, started again and after another 15mins the game just froze and the only way to fix was to turn on and off again...

    Once again today it has locked up, once while watching a DVD and the second time on Fifa.

    Is this getting ready for the red light problems or is it just run its course and probably time to replace the thing?

    Cheers
