According to major nelson the xbox replacement program is not due to the new disc format update coming out soon...
if they could do this, just think if it would be possible for them to reach out to every Xbox 360 owner and replace it with an updated Xbox 360 with a blu-ray drive. Maybe more ram too. How could would that be? Next xbox my ass. Just a dream though.
lol at all of those that yesterday were touting Microsoft has the Light Bringer by replacing future Xboxs that might show problems with the incoming new media disc. lol Turns out it was the PREVIOUS update that caused malfunntioning in some older xboxs. Well, looks like it took them a while to acknowledge the problem! @[email protected]
More RAM to 40 million xboxes?, never gonna happen
Uhhh... That would be called an Xbox 360 type 2! BTW, it was an older update that caused the problems.
Agree if you have had ring of death/red dot of death or you know someone who has.
wait why is that?
what other update came out? well i guess since my 360 still works no free upgrade for me :-(
I will have to say the wording on it really confused me. I thought it was due to the update tomorrow. I even called tech support and they told me that it was for the update tomorrow. I think there is some broken lines of communication coming out of Microsoft.
It is because of the new update. What numpty would believe otherwise.
Maybe someone whose 360 was messing up before the update?
Then that would be the same as every other person who had an issue with their xbox before the update.
Wow now i am confused.
Things like this are starting to make me lose trust in N4G. Mods spending too much time banning people, arguing with members, and not enough time monitoring what gets submitted. N4G is a good idea on paper but in reality, it fails. No wonder people mock this site in game forums.
Ugh now I'm waayyy confused.....
How long was this a problem if they wrote a way into the firmware to detect the error? This can't have just been realised today, or even in the last week or so. First Sony, now Microsoft, I'm sick of BOTH gaming companies seemingly taking us for granted. I won't go to Nintendo though (I'm a graphics whore, but can't afford a decent gaming PC), but I am seriously cheesed off at Sony's response to customers (happy with free games, but unhappy that they seemingly had no plan in place to respond to a hack and get the PSN back online again) and now this? Well, this is why I didn't run out and get a 360 in response.
This is confusing. If it's not the new update, how can a 360 user recognize that his RROD is due to some previous (unspecified) update, not unrelated hardware fault, for example. I think many people will send their consoles to MS just to be turned down because "they don't qualify". Or will all those 360s be replaced? In that case, find any broken 360 for $5 and... instant win!
Anyone notice that there isn't SWARMS of negative press about this? So many xbox fanboys around it's not even funny!
So very few people had problems with there box when the update rolled around. Now this guy "clears the confusion" by saying none of that really happened. Oh yeah that makes perfect freakin sense.
The 3-year warrenty doesn't apply to X360-S consoles -- they only get 1 year.
consoles are mess up.. lets all go back to pc
I hope mine needs to be replaced, I had to buy a new arcade 2 months before the new 360S came out and am still using a 20gb drive from a launch system.
