Fox News cover the recent Little Rock house that burned down due to a faulty Xbox 360 Power Cord.
Update:Story is covered by THV,not Fox News.
cant believe some people still support that console
also works like a coktail Molotov
lol...this makes me laugh...cant wait to see the xbox burn down a forest :) ... Is the local news in the US always this cheap/ghetto? ...the 'new at 10:00' graphic and song made me crap my pants.
this is not funny OK Think about those poor people who lost their belongings and the house because of RED RINGS OF HELL FIRE This guy is the biggest XBOX fanboy in disguise that poor family lost 100k because of HELLFIRE. this is not Funny at all also think about the KID who was burned by XBLAZE fire and the one who was fully burnt by XBLAZE
"There has to be a limit to your XBOX defense" Seriously?...lol.
Google "Banging in Little Rock" Tell you how bad that city is, and Arkansas in general (my apologies to all AR residents and bill clinton if you're reading!) GF is in fort smith arkansas as we speak for work. Lets say, coming from san diego, it's ... different!
xbox is on fire
Think about the poor people who lost their house because of that RED RING OF HELL FIRE

"Charbokkka...Charbox Charbox Char"
Charazard and that really dumb one...lol...i think its psyduck....im not to sure on the names.
Well MS sent out free replacement cords ages ago. I got mine.
Well Microsoft seems intent on changing all that...
was I thinking FOX or not????
is when she says "parents you better take note of this" i gotta say this: look at when they show the Xbox and 360 together look at that big unattractive power brick oh and lol at all the dangerous action on the screen
Wow...Sony and nintendo has been doing this for years and its never happened to them...MS is on its second gen and its happened 2 times already? sad
fox knows anything about the 360 gets peoples attention and it did, thanks to us, to be all honest thou its possible at one point or another a nes/snes/n64/gc/wii/ps1/ps2/ps 3 started a fire, but it wasn't ripped apart by fox or us...so really the only reason this got on the news is that the 360 is known for overheating...
Fox news= The xbox's kotaku.
Xbox fires. GTA V could be too small for dvd. RROD This is not xbox year...
and that Lady is hot thats is all.
lmao @ psyduck. yea im not good on the names either i was lookin for someone to come up wit a good one. iight iight new one: If box360 was a last master it'll be:..............
and the man even says "rrod" its amazing how many people are familiar with the term. hahaaha well fortunetely no one in my house will be burning down....... EDIT: AHAHHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAH and then to top it all off, you see a poster of gta for the ps3 while the guy is talking about xbox failures. hahaha come on guys, you have to admit that that's pretty funny.
We might joke about it and stuff, but the 360 REALLY is a fire hazard. Jokes aside... They should put a warning sign on the damn thing.
Oh dear, feel sorry for the people there, that DIRTY DAMN 360!
would ever purchase X360s such a defective and destructive console
Flamebait to the fullest. First off I like to say this. When dealing with electronics, you must give devices room for air. When I first started going on message boards. People were had little contest showing pictures of their "home entertainment" setups. I noticed something almost related to all systems, no room for consoles to have adequate air. People had PS3's, 360's, Audio Receivers stacked into small places, piled on to each other & stuff on top of everything. What in God's name do you expect?!! No air= hot electronic product. That's just common sense. Now, back to the 360, I have my powerbrick sitting on a cardboard box on the floor. Not only that I have my PS3, 360 & Wii sitting low also. Beside my systems I have an Onkyo Receiver & HD-DVR cable box. Since heat rises and cold air lingers below on floors, that is the reason why I have my electronics set low on my entertainment stand. I know people who were careless with electronics and appliances that have started home fires. If I carelessly did not follow instructions of a electrical piece of equipment written in the manual, do I blame the manufacture or myself?! Right is right and wrong is wrong. If this happend to be a PS3 or a Wii, I still say the same thing.
Most people don't know that electronics need ventilation. I'm sure you can cook an egg in many people's entertainment centers.
First off I own a PS3, 360, and 7.1 reciever in my house and I have all them in my tv stand which has glass door on the front. Sometime I forget to let the glass doors open and my PS3 fan will kick in to high gear but it still going strong after a year and 4 months. The 360 on the other hand I had to replace 4 of them because failures and 2 were from the RROD so if I do turn my 360 on now it requires a big fan blowing right at it with the glass door open. The fact is the 360 was poorly designed and why should I or any other person who spent hundreds $ on entertainment centers be force to have a electronic device laying on top of my entertainment system where any of my two kids can grab them just because of its poorly design. http://i178.photobucket.com...
if i place my PC in a place where it gets hot enough to burn, guess what? it turns itself off LONG before it catches fire. And I'm pretty sure the PS3 with its internal power supply has heat warnings(thats where we get that video of the kid overheating his system to blow it out). Face it, the 360 is kinda like the pinto of consoles. A lot of people like(ed) them for whatever reason, but they're not too reliable and sometimes burst into flames.
Guess what, this news piece just said that a "360 was the blame for a fire". This story gave no details about nothing. I know how news media live for stories to bring in ratings. I known people on the street who had crimes committed to them (some were murder) and the media blew sh*t-up to another direction away from the truth. So,do not sit here just cause you do not like the 360 brand an be gullible to the media. And all electronic devices "do not" have shut off switches. This right here stretches beyond your personal favor for the PS3 or 360. It about using common sense. And alot of people in this world just don't use that. When something goes wrong (and they had some responsibility of avoiding a accident) they're quick fast to blame the next man and run to an Attorney for a lawsuit. Take responsibly for self. As long as you do your part, then you take other steps.
Sony should buy them a new home! but really that sucks
I wonder what the next headline would be "Xbox360 assassinates president" Maybe instead of Altair from AC they should have use an xbox and dressed it in a hoodie. Xbox360 reminds me of a horror movie
in 2005 so thats not unusual
im assuming millions.
Power cord of death aka pcod.
Disk Drive Reading Error = DDRE
STFU, Black/Iraq Hussein Osama. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
lmao good stuff
MS fanboys are going to come running to save they're precious console against the likes of me (sony fanboy) and others alike. BUT! It depends IF they had it in a place where they got air. Also what was around it. And what model of the 360 they had, any modifications that it had. But all in all, buy a PS3 guys.
Thats disturbing the asian guy at the beginning of the video playing the 360. I went to school with him in junior high. Last time I saw him he was living on the street. I gave him $40.
That's just terrible.
if 1 xbox360 did this then what about the others 360 will that happen as well?
The story said its a 1 to 10000 chance of having your 360 burn. Thats better odds than winning the lottery ;) But if you take care it's not that great a risk, even if MS designed it so badly.
how ppl continue to support that trash RROD now this
these guys really have no shame do they?
anyone imagine if the PS3 solves cancer or whatever with [email protected] and the 360 is only known for fires and red rings of death? haha...haha...ha
Fux news when you need it.
So I see a lot "insert not so kind words for 360" and I suppose to some extent ok fine, but seriously, what the hell. It was a faulty power supply that had nothing to do with the actual 360 unit. Now if the 360 itself somehow started the fire, then sure, but it's the stupid PS. All I see is everyone coming on this happy board and spouting *insert more words* when it was probable some resistor made in china that happened to malfunction and then, fire. I'm not saying saying the heating issues are irrelevant but holy hell, to see people just see one specific(and sad story) and suddenly claim their system is superior make me weep for the coming generation.
I couldn't of said it better myself! If fanboys continue to grow this mad, just thing of what kinda F*** up things the future fanboys will do.
These people have lost there home because of this and people have turned it into a flame war to bash the 360. its pretty sick. Dell and Sony have had to recall batches of their power packs for their laptops due to this same problem. I infact had to return my dell laptop power pack and im just thankful that my family did not come to any harm. my heart goes out to this family and i hope that it is well publisised so that anyone that has not returned their faulty pack do so. Enjoy ure flame war and maybe have a look in the mirror and see if the face looking back at you is happy
I love my 360
Fox is garbage. Nothing but government propaganda. But I love hearing stupid whores pretend to know about gaming, lmao. "a fire cause by a game, derrr derrr duhh eerrrr *drools*." lmfao. a game? really? Funny sh1t. And I'd totally f*ck that black b1tch.
A 360 burnt down a house. Really sensational stuff. How about all those other fires started by, oh I don't know, naked flames from matches and lighters? This is just ridiculous.
Expect 100 more of these next week!! GTAIV WILL BURN THE HOUSE DOWN!!XBOX SUCKS!! I feel bad for that infant that died!! Damn you MS!!
Flame bait that actually CONSIST OF FIRE! LOLZ MS should include a pack in fire extinguisher with all 360's. The chances of this happening are 1 in 10,000 per Microsoft and with 18 million units out there means a great deal of people are at risk. You could be next. So remember; your xbox360 can kill you. ALWAYS...ALWAYS BE SAFE! UNPLUG! MESSAGE!
Ayou fans never listen,sue job time.the 720 may explode .
Funny I wonder why they didn’t cover the fire that killed two fire fighters here that was started by a common Oscillating fan. Apparently that happens quite frequently and fans are far more prevalent in houses then game machines. Oh and I don't recall the Dell battery fires making Fox News either, but that was a while ago so I guess I could have missed it. Its funny what they pick and choose, thousands of fires a year caused by all kinds malfunctions of everyday gear and the only one they report on is the game machine. It’s a sad biased and I am not sure why the PS3 fanboys are celebrating because every attack on game machines from the mainstream media affects them too. When they ban games\game machines it will not just affect Microsoft.
I heard the US government did not approve an Xbox Portable because it could lead to the next-gen of terrorism. ""bring your XboxP to a plane, wrap it up in your T-shirt, let it over-heat and......BOoOoOoOoOMMM!!
Wow, and I thought having to replace a few games for scratches and running through the hassle of the RROD were tough to swallow. Glad that PS3 runs cool!
to prevent fires!
