Microsoft: Xbox 360 failures are a thing of the past

Posted on Friday, Aug 28 2009 @ 13:28 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft counters reports about very high failure rates of the Xbox 360 by stating these issues are "well behind us":
Though avoiding specifics on failure rates, Xbox Live and Xbox 360 director of product management Aaron Greenberg admitted the early production lines of the 360 were beset by problems.

"I can tell you the consoles we're making today have lower-heat chips and better cooling, and we're seeing fantastic quality in those consoles today," Greenberg told GameSpot today. "That said, I know people have had issues with systems, which were bought earlier in the life cycle, and that's part of the reason why we implemented our unprecedented three-year warranty for anyone who gets the three red-ring flashing light error or the E74 error."
