Posted on June 28, 2007, Shawn Sines GamePolitics Digs Up Dirt on Xbox 360 Red Ring of DEATH!
GamePolitics has been personally motivated to dig up the dirt on the Microsoft Xbox 360 “red lights of death”. Like David who reported his loss earlier this week, they have been inspired to right an expose on the whole sordid mess while their Xbox is on its way to Texas for repairs. It seems that the number of machines afflicted must be higher than the 3-5 percent reported by Microsoft. According to repair specialists, its harder to repair than advertised and may be a design problem.
The article is very well researched and while I personally own an Xbox 360 and haven’t yet experienced this phenomenon (knock on wood), the whole business has really brought up some doubts about the way Microsoft is doing business. Check it out.
