A bunch of people who have bought a Xbox 360 yesterday report the console sometimes suddenly crashes while playing games.
Jsgongwon, one of our forum members, reported that his newly bought Xbox 360 keeps crashing while playing Project Gotham Racing 3 in single player mode.
He's playing with the default settings, and apparently his Xbox crashes even before the end of the first lap. Crashes on Xbox Live and on startup occur too. He included screenshots of the crashed Xbox 360 and a video of the crash.
A quick look on our forums seems to indicate he's not the only one. Several of our members seems to get crashing 360s. It doesn't seem to be related to a specific game, as we get reports of the Xbox 360 crashing with several games. And it's not all the same Error-number either (E79, E74, E64, real crashes, ...).
Gamershell also reports of an Xbox 360 console suddenly crashing while playing a game, they have posted a video:
The first video of an Xbox 360 crashing during gameplay has surfaced. During a game of Project Gotham Racing 3, the Xbox 360 suddenly crashed. There have been more reports of Xbox 360 crashes, which raises the question of whether this is a bad batch, or a global issue with the Xbox 360.
