Default New Xbox 360 warranty

For all those that have gotten those 3 red rings, you'll be getting your money back. An announcement has been made today that all those that have gotten 3 red rings will be refunded, and all future red ring repairs will be done free. Also, Microsoft will honor a 3 year warranty from the day of console purchase. http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/petermooreletter.htm

Hey that's good news indeed!!! However, unless they address the root (faulty design) of all the failures, it's a never ending ritual.

Nevertheless, I'm glad they came up with this.

While I don't care for how downright shady the company has been, this is a very respectable thing to do.

They clearly put out a defective product, but are rectifying the situation.

This 3 year warranty may make me rebuy one. I was seriously discussing it with the wife earlier after reading this.

This makes me VERY happy considering I still own a launch console and with the current threads of launch consoles dying I have been very nervous. I intend on being the one 360 on Earth that will never die............yeah, that won't happen. Hopefully it lasts til Nov 08 then.

yeah i'm glad this is being done. i've had one freeze up with the ring of death and that was just killer. that week of no 360 was death alone. plus, i always got scared to always run the hd dvd drive along with the 360 just because i thought that the 360 would brick up again someday.

but this is very good to hear.
