Andy Phifer, like many of us, faced a glowing red ring on his nonfunctional Xbox 360. Facing an RRoD warranty technicality, he sent Microsoft $US100 to make necessary repairs. Things didn’t go so well. Here’s his story:
Remember the Game Informer survey that found that the Xbox 360 has a 54.2 per cent failure rate? Well, Microsoft has responded, and it didn’t even try to dispute that fact.
