Quoye:
"Microsoft Corp. said Wednesday it had received isolated reports of technical problems with its popular new Xbox 360 videogame system.

Some owners complained that their systems were crashing during game play, sometimes with error messages popping up. On http://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 Sony who has purchased Yahoo News...
(sorry, just had continue that funny argument) ;)

On another note, it's good they're taking measures to solve this fast and painless. Payed overnight support is probably as good as they can do.

In response to reports of overheating Xbox 360s causing problems, a Microsoft spokesperson has told Next Generation that there are "no systemic issues" with the hardware.[...]

[...]The call rate is well below what you’d expect for a consumer electronics product of this complexity. As a percentage of the total number of Xbox 360 systems already in the field, these calls represent a very small fraction. That being said, there is no systemic issue with Xbox 360[more] (http://www.next-gen.biz/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1720&Itemid=2)

Obviously that comment was to much for you to understand, it's still the same Sleazy site that has Pirated Games on it's site, NFO files, and "mod" chips http://www.xbox-scene.com/releases.php that all the articles point too. The site just wants to generate traffic, and to exploit naive people such as yourself and more hits they get the more money they can make.

If you read the false crap on that site you would think every Xbox is doing this and that they will all be recalled soon. Hey kudos to them that they can bait people hook line and sinker.

I think the rest of the more experienced crowd has seen websites try to worm there way to high traffic with every major release from Ipods, Ipod nano's, PlayStation one and Two, original Xbox and they can see right through it.

Besides it doesnt take a genius to know that not all of the 3 million Xbox's will work perfect, and that probably most of the crashes are from people covering the vent holes on the top/side of the xbox with a dvd player or too close to the wall and then wondering why it crashes due to overheating.

Unfortunately ppl really aren't that smart, you can see the evidence in road traffic everyday plus the fact that they need to put "Saving... please don't remove the memory card" warning in consoles. :scream:

Maybe they should put similar warning on where ppl should and shouldnt put their consoles.:shrug:

If that was the case then it would have been an everlasting issue with the PS2 and Xbox 1 as well. Oviously there is something wrong with the way it is designed or a manufacturing problem affected some of the produced 360s.
