Micrrosoft responds to Xbox 360 crashes

Posted on Thursday, November 24 2005 @ 23:46 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Microsoft admits it has received a couple of isolated reports of technical problems with the new Xbox 360 console.
Some owners complained that their systems were crashing during game play, sometimes with error messages popping up. On www.xbox-scene.com, a site dedicated to Xbox gaming, a member called jsgongwon reported that he could not finish the first lap of "Project Gotham Racing 3."

"It's a few reports of consoles here and there not working properly," said Molly O'Donnell, a spokeswoman for Microsoft's Xbox division. "It's what you would expect with a consumer electronics instrument of this complexity .... par for the course."
More info over The Age. People who have problems with their Xbox 360 should call 1-800-4myXbox or go to www.xbox.com. If the problem can't be resolved immediately, Microsoft will pay to ship to console overnight to a repair centre, send it back overnight once it was fixed, or ship a replacement.
