Isn't the question more CAN they fix the problem? I love the 360 (more than the Wii in many ways, even) but the whole issue pisses me off about Microsoft.

They can't fix it, it's a PC, they go wrong sometimes. Eventually though, they will replace ALL models and then the problem will be solved. It's a good business plan.

Rawr!

No, of course not. That would mean that they would have to make an effort with the hardware, not working on online that you have to pay for, and apparently that's not what they're aiming for.

That's why you're still a kid.

Why? Micro$oft would have to use resources and money and work on crappy games. They need to focus on the niche they have while they still can.

Micro$oft will actually have to work to fix that problem, and the do not care enough to do that.

RROD=Red Ring Of Death, a ring of three red lights instead of the usual green ones on the Xbox 360. Indicates hardware failure.

Why should they fix it?

The media gives them a free pass after 2 weeks of tough grilling and their buyers put up with it.

In fact, no doubt it has increased sales (if not profits lol!) from those ignorant, too lazy or too loyal to take advantage of the warranty.

Install bases are SO overrated!

Regarding the RROD, how could it improve profits?

I think the RRoD was due to the rush of the 360 getting released early. Microsoft will probably see this one coming for the next gen and HOPEFULLY fix it before it ever happens again

Yes - but MS knew it was a problem and released anyway - first to market and all that.

They tried to fix it on the go - and knew there would be problems..........360 gives you high end graphics on the cheap - and that was the result - overheating and warping of chips, and broken solder.

I wil bet their next console will not have red rings on it though....hahaha.

With the way that Sony has now revised all three of its consoles, I'm still surprised that Microsoft just doesn't...you know, make a better 360 and replace the older models. They obviously have the money to throw around buying "timed" exclusives, so I think they could and should take the time to make people more confident in their product.
