EB Games Australia Issues Total 360 Recall

EB Games Australia have issued a recall on their Xbox 360s. Not just their own personal display or demo units. Every single Premium Xbox 360 they had in-stock. Sources within the company have confirmed that two weeks ago (approx June 29) store managers were first asked by Head Office to test every single unit in stock for errors, but were then ordered last week to return their entire inventories of the console, as well as remove all 360 promotional material and dummy boxes from their stores. The recall is believed to be due to a faulty batch of HDDs, as it did not include Core units.

but this is not unusual since 60% of x360s are defective

asian manufacturers are hesistating to make x360s.

MS themselves are admitting that 100% x360s have flawed designs and are defective

they blame cheap components for x360's failure

BETHESDA:_ x360 do fail sometimes so i am having an extra SDK

Guardian's take on 60% x360 failures

MS themselves are saying that there were flaws in x360's design


i always link my claims which are VALID from idependent sources

This is obviously a bad batch. Nothing more, as this was never reported anywhere else.

I'm sure the fanboys will take this story to town though.

This story will get posted in about 5 seconds and be on the front page. 1000 degrees by the time it is done.

Welcome to N4G.

and now ladies and gentlemen take a look at this

see how he changed his also

He called me desperate, truly said and pathetic yet look at
what he was doing himself. Don't let him fool you he is
the biggest anti Sony person on this site just look at his old
comments all his submitted stories and all the sony hating articles
he posts that end up in the failed section. Here's a funny one
he tried to post

if you notice those screen shots they say press L2 on one of them
which clearly lets you know they are PS3 shots taken from the PS3
of IGN.

Yeah, I think its 2 red lights or something, but im not 100% sure. We get it now and then at work, it does happen.

Something must've happened between the factory and Australia because we've heard nothing about this anywhere else.
