Myarcadeplanet.com just received a rather well sourced rumor from Microsoft that they will be releasing 1st Party Cooling Devices.
because microsoft cant make anything. its unfortunate i have there computer. no wonder we had to take it the repair shop 3 times. poor poor microsoft, cant you guys make ANYTHING RIGHT.
MS should stop making them
says the sony boys using Windows
liar, M$ doesn't manufacture computers. troll.
They should because it could save them hundreds of millions instead of repairs or replacement. I'm only saying this if these new cooler are proven to fix the hardware issues. $20 cost per cooler would be something Microsoft might want to think about instead of the 1 billion dollar repair bill the have right now.
Also what happened to NYKO?
I thought they already made a cooler for the 360.
They did,but not everyone buys it.
there are rumors that the nyko one is worse for the 360 than nothing at all.
I can't help myself, but.....it'll probably overheat.
I'm sorry....that HAD to be said...and it's a joke in case anyone wants to be a 'tard.
it to M$ for at least acknowledging something is wrong.
So much for the minute size difference.
MicroCrastination admiting stuff wrong? more like dodge the questions and issues, etc. Unless trapped as into no choice to admit then comes up with a weak-@$$ solution for their problems. Remember people, PS3 and Nintendo Wii 4 the Win!
Cause TheMewtasticOne knows so, Hahaha! *MeeeeeooooowwwMixtastic!*
Wow, am I sleepy. I read it "MS making their own Cooking device"... I was WTF for 30 seconds and thought this was wrongly approved but now I know that I was out of my mind.
Mixed good/bad news. Good find.
WoW!.....Ohh thats good....<3 you made my day...I'll let someone else do the riping :D
'Microsoft PC' *HINT HINT*
Don't vote me down, I don't mean this in the worst way but.
Someone buys a Core, in order to obtain the equivilant, feature wise, in a PS3, now they'd have to get: Wireless device, HD-DVD add-on, hard drive, play-and-charge kit, and the cooling device, and then you have a completely decked out fail proof 360.
I mean, you see where I'm coming from right? I don't know, I want to get a 360 for Mass Effect (I'm not a Halo fan, so ME is the only game that has me raving right now), but the value of the console just doesn't do it for me with all these addons and all. I don't know.
you don't need any of the stuff listed to play Mass Effect. The Play and Charge kit isn't needed for a wired controller. The only thing you may need, if it doesn't already come with it, is a memory card.
stop trolling. first you dont NEED all that crap. id say all you would need is a memory card which could be had for like $25 on amazon.com so with the price drop on the core you could still be playing one of the best looking RPG's ever for little more than $365 (system, memory card, and game)
This is in line with existing company policy. They already make the "most secure" OS and sell antivirus, antispam, firewall, backup, anal intruder, etc...
Microsoft and hardware have not had a good run in the last while. I hope they do not "cheap out" again n hopes of getting some return on their investment ... However, if this turns out to be a quality product then all the more power for MS ... they're about to be de-throned by Nintendo and they need to start shaping up for the coming months of this war.
Micro$hits for their Xbox-Three-$hitty-Sixty console. If it be true, more $hitty consoles to come and break. Inter-Crap-Cooler anyone? LMFAO!
that could be ruling good for those xbox 360 own
Is everyone here using windows? if not then you get a slapping. :P
windows is software not hardware
brand names. funny how she DOES KNOW THAT PEOPLE LIKE SONY PRODUCTS.interesting, if i was there, we wouldnt be having these problems with this crap.
mi crosoft should use my piss is very good for consoles
knowing MS brilliant hardware choice.... >.>
If MS does in fact make Cooling Devices you can all but wonder about the future quality of the internal cooling system of the 360...even more >.>
oh my god....thats like the worst news EVER!
a softerware company making hardware hahahahaha hmmm didnt the fatal error of 3 red rings teach MS to not go in house and go 2 a reliable source to get them done...oh ya i 4got - MS = greedy = cheap
I agree with that about Micro$hits, LMFAO!
Well everyone knows MS dislikes 3rd parties developing anything for there machine (outside of games obviously) so it wouldn't surprise me in the least if this turned out to be true.
heres a good example of the amount of sony boys compared to the amount of 360 fanboys on this site
SONY = GOD..RIGHT BOYS?
PS3 and Nintendo Wii, 4 the Win!
Hahaha! *Meeeeeeeeeooooooooowwwwrrific !*
Your a FANBOY once again!
i think my piss might be able 2 cure the red ring off death my piss is very healthy my dog loves drinking it
my 2 360's haven't had problems, one being launch and the other being purcahsed just a while ago...
I seriously cant believe all the problems people have, It must just be I dont put my 360 in the dish washer like others do.
Sorry, but I dont get how someone can dissagree wit your comment. You describe your systems not breaking so that has nothing to do with your opinion. Sony fanboys these days; dissagree with anything that contains microsoft.
Nice to know your systems are still holding up, hope they last a long long time. Think on the bright side if it breaks you get one with the new heatsink. You cant lose.
"It must just be I dont put my 360 in the dish washer like others do"
dumb. plain dumb. if you believe that your an idiot.
your in serious denial.
#1 Microsoft makes the OS for computers not the computer itsself (OS = Operating System)
#2 Microsoft puts new heatsinks in 360's plus 65n chip is their new systems. You no longeer need a cooler.
- As far as this rumor goes t's debunked to me, why add hardware to cool it down then add an external colling system. (makes no sense)
- For the people with older systems with the older chipsets you will not get the new chips as they require a whole new board, but you will get the new heatsink so you dont need a cooler.
Seriously.. I think that Sony protection group bunch of low life fantatics are invading this site.. just to talk about the same crap that only they want to hear...
take Anego Montoya, PS3Rebel, MewMew and the rest of the fools....
Who gives a $h!t.. what you have to say about the PS3 or the xbox 360... don't you have anything to play.. like Resistance.. and Motorstorm.. and resistance... and... uhhh.. resistance... and some more motorstorm... and .....
how bout gears??? are you tired of beating it everyday??
actually being plaing... Rainbow six, C&C3 and Ghost Recon 2....
how about you?... please tell us... hehe.. I bet you... Resistance is one of them...
I finished resistance in about a month and trade it in for $30. Then I got nba2k7 which I still play sometimes.
Obviously got motorstorm, awesome game still have it and I haven't finished it yet. (play online with it once in a while).
Rented Rainbowsix about 2 months ago and beat it. Good rental (online was good in the pc years specially Rogue Spear, but in the PS3 sucks) MO.
Some days later rented Oblivion and I didn't like it.. Crappy rental MO.
Then bought The Darkness... It was fun, but I was more interested in beating it to return it, than to actually see the finish. cool game, NOT a classic.
Now I'm playing the hell out of sigma. One game at a time is more than enough for me.
and sorry resistance isn't one if them... IT WAS hehe. To tell you the truth I would like to play it again now that I have an HDTV. I know it would be a whole different experience.
why the hell would they try n profit from there own mistake, its ludicrous. they should be sending these out to every single xbox360 owner free of charge like those damn power cords on the original xbox (that they are now getting sued over), if they do attempt to make any kind of profit from these 1st party fans I will never buy another MS product.
Did everyone miss the fact that this is a rumor. MS is not going to make a cooling device it sends a bad message and I'm sure they feel their solution to the overheating issues have been resolved with this fix. Believe me, it's in their best interest to make sure it works. You just don't throw a billion dollars at a half-assed solution. There has not been any reports of people with the heatsync fix having further issues. MS know how to make a good box, look at the Xbox1 it was a freakin tank and a lot better design than the PS2.
I've got 2 360's and never had an issue with either so I don't know what else to say except it's been a great gaming system for me.
I also find it funny how this article has 3-4 commentors who actually own a 360 and the rest are just hear to take the same old shots at the this console. I don't think it's fair to the 360 users on this site that they can't have a decent conversation about the 360 without having to spent all their bubbles defending themselves. My advice to the people who do want to have a "grown-up" conversation about this console stop responding to the trolls or use the ignore feature. They have this false sense that if they scream long enough that they don't like the 360 that they will convert someone or sell a PS3 for Sony(you would think they are getting a cut) but the people who have a 360 with no problems understand it's a great console with great games.
....if they do that i'm gonna die laughing
Early this fall the down sized 65 nano chips will be installed in the newer consoles. so external cooling devices will not be required.
if M$ really wants to diminish consumer confidence, this would be the way to proceed.
this post would fit very nicely in someones comedy routine.
Microsoft CANNOT create a cooling device for their own console, people will then argue that the 360 was not created with enough cooling causing the consumer to then purchase an additional product from Microsoft.
Its like saying 'Well you bought the console but we didnt put any fans in it, you have to buy that seperatly'.
I would be pretty upset if Microsoft did make their own...
hahahah awwww is blindstar getting upset at the fact PS3 is starting to shine - i think so lol
see ur soo dumb honestly - 360 has been out for a whole year ahead of ps3 and u can only name 3 games that arent even AAA titles - now that is PLAIN HURTING!
RFOM simply rocks - motorstorm online is by far the craziest ride ever! that game is keeping me happy and i bought that back in march - we also have rainbow 6...but since its a port i dont even bother
and once again - trying to show that 360 has games and PS3 doesnt but yet ignore the fact the PS3 just launched and the 360 is ahead one year - and from the games i see on the 360 lol its nothing to be happy about
run along blindstar - maybe u should pick up [email protected]
And how much will MS overcharge it?
Msft is probley tired of getting shafted, first it was nvidia, and then the failure problems, so they might be trying to move a way from thrid party build
they better hurry before my 360 heats up and blows into pieces.
Do you people really believe this is true? Nobody, even MS, is stupid enough to do such a thing!
I can allready see the advertisement:
"We now present our new Xbox 360 bundle pack. Including our new 1st party cooling device to keep your Xbox 360 cool since it can't keep itself cool due to a design flaw".
Seriously, this would mean suicide for MS. This is NOT going to happen.
