DID YOU KNOW?
Dubbed to be one of the pioneers of game consoles in the world, Xbox, owned by Microsoft, has truly captured the hearts of gamers since its inception in 2001. Yet, much as it deserves a lot of praises due to its exceptional functionality, it also had its fair share of flaks. In fact, did you know that in May of 2007, a lot of Xbox 360 game consoles were defective? As a result, Microsoft spent $1 billion to repair and/or replace defective ones absolutely for free! According to Robbie Bach, former Xbox head, it was one of biggest decisions he made in his 22-year stay at Microsoft. The huge defect is called "Red Ring of Death." It was called such because the system would display a 'ring of three red lights' around the on and off button. But what really is it about? Well, it sounds too technical but basically it was s a massive issue on the hardware that caused the console to just stop working.
In all fairness to game console companies, they have stepped up their game in terms of specs, functionality, and display.
