And on the subject of console failure rates...


Courtesy of the dudes over at Xbox 360 Fanboy, a rumour control story about the 360's notorious Red Ring Of Death failure rate affecting as many as 68% of pre-redesigned chip units.

Speaking for the bloggers who bring you this daily farrago, we've been fortunate enough not to see the image above in our day-to-day use of our machine (perhaps this is because we don't carry the hardcore card and refrain from using our 360 for fourteen hours at a time?).

Wiseacre quippery quite aside, it's obvious that the 360 had serious design issues from launch and it's probably only down to the Xbox community refusing to let this problem go away that Microsoft did anything about it...
