He just spined an original article to 180 degree.
IT was a good MS news. Now it is bad MS news in topic and text cuted out of contest.

IN reality original article tells what MS replace original RRoD motherboards with Falcon-family Opus to ensure it will not RRoD.

Maybe English isn't your native language???

Maybe you should go to school more often???

That just gives me a headache.

Lifendz3731d ago (Edited 3731d ago )

baby steps to eliminating the RROD forever. Now if all the other problems with the 360 could go away, they'd have a system as durable as the original Xbox.

Thats how the SDF works and are working in groups to get news totally facked over. Started about a year ago and its pretty sad.

Who are you referring to? Noxious?

dantesparda3731d ago

I would rather MS give me a straight up Falcon 360 than one of these, cuz at least you'd be getting HDMI for the trouble. But no, MS always looking for a way to nickel and dime you, rather do it this way because its benefits them, not you. And Mart stop being your usual fanboy self. And there's also a Microsoft Defense Force, and you're one of their leaders

No wait! It's the author that is spinning.
Fanboyism has just reached a new low.

Authir has corrected topic and description.

I just found this article on IGN and posted it on here, it was an quite interesting article. I didn't know how to disect it really. But this opus chip seems to go into the original xbox 360's, to cover up the error that started the ring problem. But, how is the opus helping them recoup lost money? I own all three systems i chose no side, lol.

The Opus will go into the original xenon systems giving them a much smaller heat profile.
Those systems are still RRODing and going back to MS. They swap the motherboard, sort the licenses and send them back.

Now the user who had the problem now has the latest gen motherboard, and the chances of repeated failure are diminished.

My 360 was collected by UPS yesterday. So fingers crossed I will get it back with an Opus board.

Omega43731d ago

Hopefully now the RROD problem will become nonexisitant, and everyone wont have to leave in fear

edhe3731d ago

Agreed. A lot of people saw the breakdown as a deal breaker. had it never had happened the 360 would've retained a lot of the sales the ps3 got.

once it's nailed i think MS need to do some advertising about their cooler, quieter systems that go with the new dash.
