Microsoft Refuses To Acknowledge Wireless Headset Flaws

Over at the official Xbox.com website the forums are full of posts about the lack of support from MS over the wireless headset issues. Many loyal 360 owners were waiting for this headset with high hopes. Here at XBL Radio, where we record on Xbox Live for our LIVE show, we were hoping to have a peripheral that would allow us to use the controller for our LIVE Roundtable: enabling us to have more freedom as we record over LIVE. However Rusty Ranchero and Carpal will both agree that the headset is another stumbling block on the 360 accessory releases.

Im sure MS's not dealing with the consumer on purpose, they might not know what's happening many people say it works fine.

Interesting suject though i hope MS can address the issue and do right by their consumers.

I did get with Major Nelson on this topic and he told me that we is forwarding this to his team. But after talking with others I heard that this wasn't the first time he was told.

I take it you dont have a 360 how is MS fu*king people over COOL!?!?!?!?!. lol

Steve5196446d ago (Edited 6446d ago )

You take that I don't have a 360? Why is that, is it because I do a podcast about the 360, is it because I run a 360 website or is it the fact that I talked to Major Nelson and some others at MS about this and they are NOW forwarding this issue to their team. So go ahead and pick a reason why I don't own a 360. But the issue is that there has been a crap load of talk about this in the Xbox community and over at the Xbox.com official forums and nothing has been done about this. They are choosing to ignore the issue right now. Just like the overheating issue when the 360 came out. I'm on my 2nd 360 now, I don't hate MS for that either, I just wish they put more testing into there products. So sorry to dissapoint you here but there is no hating going on, just informing others.

Oh and yes, I voted a cool for my story here, you can check all my stories I post. I always do that. And while your checking look at my other submitted stories, there are good things I've posted about MS and bad things as well. I'm a gamer, I just want whats best for gamers.

power of Green 6446d ago (Edited 6446d ago )

My bad Dude!/Man!, sh*t problems with MS's products confused me with the vote. I did not realize you were the type of demanding gamer that hold companies to the up-most critasizom, nothing wrong with that if had any problems with the 360 believe me when i say; i would be volcal also. Peace. I thought by now all 360 owners knew MS cares very much about their fans the way the thread is worded sounds like MS puts out products for money with out concern about the quality.

highps36446d ago

They will admit it after they sold well.

Dont know why people want M$ to succeed so bad either. But they got it, now watch what happends to the gaming industry.

Steve5196446d ago

I want them to succeed but that doesn't mean I want the others to fail. I think that when you have 3 big guys all going at it, Nintendo, Sony and MS that in the end we all win. They win by getting our dollar and we when by getting better products due to the competition

gnothe16446d ago

first an formost Im american, its about time we got a product that can compete in the japanese market.all you see is mainly jap cars on the road,jap systems in our house, so hell yeah I support MS!!!what have MS done with windows over the years , nothing but made it better an better, so if they take over the gaming market I dont see it as a bad thing!!

With The Xbox 360 Store Closing Soon, Let’s Look Back At The Console’s Legacy

As the Xbox 360 store will shut down on July 29, 2024, I think now is the best time to look back at the console's legacy.

I remember good old years of RRoD

Not to mention, #scratchgate

And also taking your hard drive to your mates in a backpack, only to get there and find “Error 80072EF3 data is corrupted”

Great one. LAN party Night ruined.

darthv723d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Dont know about the hard drive one, but if you were doing a LAN party then you'd take the whole system... not just the hard drive. As for scratched discs, yeah that was an issue for all of those optical drive based systems. I had ps1 and ps2 scratch discs, same with dreamcast, saturn and 3do. Come to find out that you really shouldnt be moving the systems while the discs are spinning... go figure.

One system i never had that problem with was the og xbox, only because it was built like a tank and weighed just as much.

purple1013d ago

you take the hard drive when there are already multiple xboxs there, but you want your account, ie your level 32 on halo, but your mates only level 12, and you intend to go online at some point, etc.

360 scratched disks even without moving the console, laser alignment was off.

shinoff21832d ago

Darth those scratching disc issues weren't just from moving the console, it was an issue while just sitting still as well

Einhander19722d ago (Edited 2d ago )


Yes CD get scratched, but the 360 issue was that the disk drive spindle put the disk back onto the tray before it stopped spinning. That was not the case with PS1 or PS2.

The 360 had an actual problem caused by the hardware itself. The disks would get circular scratches from the disk spinning on top of the tray.

And I own plenty of PS1 and PS2 games and none of them have that type of scratches. Where as the 360 games I own all have this exact type of scratch.

This isn't even really a debatable thing, it went to up to the supreme court. Who didn't rule on the case and sent it back to the lower court where Microsoft settled instead of having to face a class action and admit that the 360 had yet another major flaw.

S2Killinit2d ago

I had disc scratch issue with xbox, even without moving it, but not with other consoles. With xbox if you moved your console, it was game over for your disc as far as I remember. You could hear it.

True. Still spanked the ps3 though.


shinoff21832d ago

It didn't though in the end Ms stopped supporting it halfway through and ps3 ended up with better games. Last of us over everything released that gen, alone.

Far as sales ps3 was also on top of the 360

darthv723d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Great system marred with poor design choices in its early life. From the first redesign on though... it was nearly flawless. and the games hold up remarkably well still to this day.

Kinect would be the only late in life blemish, but one that 'thankfully' didnt last for too long. Its a really cool piece of camera tech... just not that great for games.

purple1013d ago

I actually thought Kinect was good, they could have tried harder with it and found some success,

the only problem was them including it bumping up the price, they could have had a bundle with it included and another without, but they only had the one bundle, so people felt forced into it.

Kurisu3d ago

Will the 360 games still be available to buy on Series X|S, or is that going as well?

anast2d ago

The Xbox game machine that almost succeeded.

Reaper22_2d ago

360 wasn't perfect but it was a huge success.

shinoff21832d ago

Out of the 3 it still ended up last. It was a success in a way but Xbox went backwards right after.
