Nathaniel, a 360 fan of epic proportions, had a problem recently. The kid had collected a ton of of important memorials of the gaming world on his Xbox case--original sketches from the likes of Bungie's staff, signatures of Xbox 360 team members, and Luke McKay of Rooster Teeth Comics. See pic above.
Then he got the dreaded Red Ring of Death.
In spite of leaving explicit instructions with Xbox's crack technical support team that his case not be erased, the box came back crystal clean, wiped of all but traces of indelible ink.
Sad story, right? But there's a happy ending: Bungie has vowed to make the situation right again.
"Something is already 'afoot' within Bungie to help our community member in need," Bungie community director Brian Jarrard told Next-Gen on Monday. "Our team and the community as a whole is rallying to help fix this unfortunate situation. It’s been awesome to see such an outpouring of sympathy and support from our community. We can't replace the exact item that was lost but, but we should come very close."
Somehow, we imagine it will be better than the original!
