Default Irish gaming site ceases Xbox 360 coverage for faulty hardware

An unknown gaming site from Ireland takes a stand against Xbox 360, saying it will no longer cover the console due to its infamous reliability, namely the dreaded Red Ring of Death.


Full Text:

"Next Gen Ireland will be suspending all Xbox 360 coverage indefinitely," the publisher said on Thursday, this after all three of its review consoles experienced the fatal Red Ring of Death error in a single week.

Despite Microsoft's extended three-year warranty and repeated apologies, the site claims that the problem is compounded in Ireland, where Next Gen says that Microsoft fails to provide satisfactory service.

"Next Gen Ireland felt that we needed to take a stand as customers and not reviewers in this instance, and to be treated that way by Microsoft after they were at fault by releasing a console that was blatantly untested onto the mass market is unacceptable," continues the notice. "In our opinion, the after sales service we received today was atrocious and we can't stand for it."

Since launching in November 2005, a reported 33 percent of all Xbox 360s fail, something an unverified former employee said Microsoft knew when launching the system in an effort to beat Sony to market.

Microsoft was not immediately available for comment when contacted by GamePro on Friday.

See, and now I've been wondering (In another thread) why M$ can't sell 360s anywhere but in the US. I guess we have our answer.

Dont forget the English company who refused to take anymore returned consoles because they were not making money in repairing them for Microsoft. Said to many to fix for too little monetary return.

EDIT just found link. http://gamer.blorge.com/2007/07/04/n...death-repairs/

As I expected people in Europe and maybe Japan have got the dirty end of stick. Meaning all the improved and falcon chipped computers have gone to US first, we in Europe have continued to get the sub par machines. So in percentage wise there is more older models in Europe the US. The newer redesigned chips will also go to US first then to here.

It's only brainwashed Americans who continue to buy the 360. The rest of the world realised a long time ago what a sack of shit it is.
