Its a commercial. I'd actually like to see more of this. There have been many big plans in the past that have flopped...Microsoft should worry about quality first, then think to new ideas. A 50% system fail rate is pathetic.

Actually, alot of the new Xbox machines made today are no longer falling victim to the ring of death.

Alot of them? Well that's comforting.

I know a few people that have spent 700$ in video game consoles in the last year or two because their XBOX (300$) crapped out on them and then they had to buy a PS3 (400$). And that doesn't include the wasted money on XBOX games.

I thought the ring of death was the ring the x-box burns in to games when you move the console while a game is playing.

I thought the red ring has another name.

I have never seen this ring. My XBox is going on 9 years old and no problems.

Cat puked on it once though, that was a bitch to clean.

Baby kicked it off the shelf as well, still works perfectly.

Damnnnnnn, that looks crazy sick!

Anybody know when that is supposed to come out? Hopefully they figure out a way to incorporate "shooters" into that system. That would be suuuuwweeeeet! I'd be first in line to cop one regardless of price.

Yeah, my latest Xbox was a "new" version and that didn't stop it from crapping out in a well ventilated, cool area. PS3s have a 10% fail rate, 360's have a 50% fail rate and while those numbers are going down it doesn't mean a whole lot. It would be hard to imagine that Microsoft could go anywhere but get better with that sort of horrid stat. The 360 has a faulty design and instead of giving you timely service like Nintendo and Sony does they make you wait one-two months for a fix that ultimately is only bidding you a little more time until your next system failure.

Big difference between the regular 1st gen xbox and the 360. I have a regular 1st gen xbox that works fine as well.

My first 360 chewed up NBA 2K8 on me when I tried to move it while it was going. Who could know that would happen? It wasn't an issue with any console I had prior.

its funny that you mention that....but thats a completely different problem....you get the ring of death when the system gets too hot or is not ventilated properly.....i went through 2 360's before getting the ps3......

"360" stands for:

Manufacturer>Customer>Manufacturer

OR

Working>Broken(after warranty)>Working(After $200 more)

Microsoft should change the 360's logo to four red lights. So symbolic..

No, you get it due to a faulty design which causes the system to overheat while using it for its intended function: turning it on and using it.

You know it really does suck and every gen seems to produce a lemon of some kind. Last gen it was the PS2 and its faulty disc drives. At least they were timely and helpful.

So you've had one crap out on you, chew up NBA 2k8 and you've bought another one? Or am i reading that wrong?

If i bought one and it did that i'd never trust it again, i wouldn't care what they said about the next generation.

Yeah, I bought another one because I had a bunch of games and people telling me "hey, they're getting better, not so many consoles die now, yada, yada, yada"...Not to mention last time around, a year ago, I was just coming out of college and I didn't have much money. Now I'm debt free and doing pretty well and so it was easy for me to make the transition. Damn...The next "gen of 360's aren't any better than the first gen", its all a marketing ploy. My first xbox 360 lasted longer than my second.

That's not true. There are multiple red ring errors and different coverage plans on them. If you're getting a 360 and the store offers an extended warranty then that's the way to go.
