[News] [Rival] Microsoft Hardware Still Abysmal, Obama Won't Touch It

Hash: SHA1

'Red Ringed' Xbox 360s still dog Microsoft

| If you look online, you’ll find lots of people like Travis. Really angry 
| people. Every game enthusiast site has multiple forums dedicated to the Red 
| Ring problem – home remedies on how to solve it, condolences for people 
| who’ve just experienced it, and gamers claiming to be on their fourth, sixth 
| or ninth Xbox 360

| Political maneuvering extends far beyond the reaches of Washington. In fact, 
| the Barack Obama PR machine extends all the way to Redmond, Washington and 
| Cupertino, California, resulting in quite the little scandal even before 
| Barack Obama officially takes the greatest office in the land.   



Disgruntled Gamer Sues Microsoft For Scratched Game Discs

| Microsoft could find themselves in some hot water if a Madison County,
| Illinois resident has his way.  Jason Johnson is suing Microsoft for what he
| claims is defective hardware in relation to his Xbox 360.  Johnson claims
| that his console has ruined his favorite games and made them 'unplayable' due
| to optical disc scratching.  He claims that his copies of Rock Band, Grand
| Theft Auto IV, and Rock Band 2 all began displaying the "Disc Read Error"
| after extensive use.

Microsoft admits scratch problem with Xbox 360

,----[ Quote ]
| There hasn't been much discussion on the fact that the problem exists
| by consumers, but untill now Microsoft has always somewhat denied the
| problem and never proposed a solution.
| The Dutch television show Kassa, which deals with customer complaints,
| has been nagging Microsoft about this problem for several weeks, they
| did tests with Xbox360 setups and filmed (and proofed) that the Xbox360
| is indeed responsible for scratching game discs, when not moved, placed
| on a stable table and under the best possible conditions.
| [...]
| The television show also reported that while this issue is now an issue
| in the Netherlands (it is also widely covered in regular news), it
| could become a global problem for Microsoft in the future. Therefore
| I would recommend anyone who is facing the same problem to contact
| their local Microsoft office and point them to this article.


Gears of War disc errors - why the hell is no one covering this?

| So, we're all just 'unlucky' Mark? Thanks for that. I'm happy for you
| and your console, but what about us? Where are we supposed to turn to
| for help and support? Microsoft wasn't very helpful (ref #102-379-2964)
| any of the times I've called them (I think it's up to three now for the
| same issue - perhaps I'll call again today and check on an update).
| All I know is that if I see that dreaded error message again on my new
| 360 I am going to go absolutely ballistic!!!

Update brick your 360? Speak up

| Since yesterday's update, there are numerous reports about 360s
| being bricked. Some people suspect that this is being done by
| Microsoft intentionally to stop modders and hackers. Xbox Scene
| thinks it has more to do with certain combinations of hardware
| and firmware.


Autoupdate killed my 360!

,----[ Quote ]
| I was fine yesterday gaming with the VGA cable but after getting
| the autoupdate today, I get a black screen. Does Microsoft test
| these things? My connection to the TV didn't change yet its
| screwed. Thanks for nothing Microsoft.
