Microsoft: Worst of "Red Ring" Behind Us


Posted February 17, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Microsoft has some comforting words for gamers worried about the dreaded Red Ring of Death. The worst is behind us. 

Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg told Edge Online, "We've improved that [repair] process... It's very quick, and they may upgrade your system with the latest technology. So that works really well. "

If and when your Xbox red-rings, it'll get back to you fast because Microsoft has a lot of experiencing fixing their consoles! According to Microsoft, the RRoD problem should be less and less frequent in the future.

"What it comes down to is isolating and figuring out the issue, fixing the issue, and the more that we can fix the issue, and know it's fixed, then we're good going forward," said Greenberg. "We've put the worst behind us on this, but we know there are a few lagging systems, and so we want to take those and make it right."

I had my Xbox red-ring and I quickly received a replacement, but the replacement box was noticeably louder than my original. It's worked solidly for at least a year, however. What about you: Got any good RRoD stories? Oh, and if your box is broken, don't cry. Instead, laugh at the funny Attack of the Show video below.
