Now that Microsoft has removed the possibility of future red rings thanks to the redesign of the Xbox 360. (There are no red indicators on the power button anymore) You might wonder what will happen should the console overheat or exhibit similar problems. Well, wonder no more – the red ring of death has been made obsolete thanks to the message box of coma!
Apparently the Xbox 360 Slim detects when it’s overheating and flashes a nice new warning sign up advising users to turn off the box, go outside and play with your tetherball. (Ok maybe I embellished that last part). Now it’s amazing that folks have already discovered this with the hardware only in the wild for about a week.
