Europe investigates Microsoft Xbox 360 scratching disk problem

The Inquirer

OUR DUTCH is not good. Forgive us. The Bulgarian lass is complaining about scratched DVDs. We dunno whether the HDDs are any good. But in any case the Vole has to come up with an answer in one week. Flat.
THE EUROPEAN COMMISSIONER for Consumers has asked Microsoft to explain why Xbox 360s have so many faulty hard drives.

There are, apparently, 1,000 complaints from The Netherlands alone. She wants and expects Microsoft to respond to worldwide complaints about the problem

The EU will do everything they can in order to bankrupt an American company, especially one as large as Microsoft.

They don't seem to have the right frame of mind, which is - "Make a better product!!!" - not try to financially destroy a company.

Maybe bankrupt = "defend from". At least it's how many people here see it. You, as an American see it the other way. But I'm off topic, sorry.

Out of the 3 people I know that have a 360, they have had no problems with theirs. I've never had a problem with my launch box either.

If Microsoft wasn’t so rich they would have been kick out of the video game industry a long time ago, this and the red ring of death is not good enough! If you buy there products your nothing more than beta testers

The very same thing could have been said about the Playstation 2, it reached a point where sony ended up getting sued.

Why do they mention hard drives? The first time I hear about the problem with HDD. I know only of that red rings and scratched DVDs problems.

DrHooker3763d ago

i believe she is referring to scratched disks but incorrectly said HDD. the inq's article title and the first paragraph suggest that anyway.
