Are the dreaded days of seeing the Xbox 360 three red rings of death a thing of the past? Obviously, they're not ancient history yet since there are still too many people having to send in their 360 for repairs.
However, Microsoft has now come out saying that every single 360 now on the market are all improved models; implying the bad ones have been taken off the shelves.
"We have made all the improvements in our manufacturing process," explained Group Marketing Manager Aaron Greenberg to Kotaku.
"All the consoles on the market have those improvements. [We will] repair the console sent to us with these. It should be similar to buying a new console off the shelf."
If true, this would be fantastic news for gamers. Xbox 360 is consistently outselling PlayStation 3 right now, and that's with the problem of defective units. Imagine how much farther ahead in sales Microsoft will be once they've finally solved the problem and fear and trepidation for new buyers was kept to an absolute minimum?
