Re: First XBOX 360 Troubles
I have a theory. Keep in mind that I have no evidence to back this. It's just an idea. Anyway, I'm thinking that Microsoft made the power supplies faulty on purpose. This way, when people starting complaining, they'd say, "OH NO! You guys have a problem with your 360? Here, let us fix it! We'll have a replacement power supply shipped out to you by tomorrow!"
And thus, they receive uber props for their awesome customer support, and people will like them much more. We'll have to see how it pans out over the next few weeks....
Of course, if this theory were true, I would imagine that they'd make something else faulty. Making the power brick overheat like that seems like a fire waiting to happen. [Shrug.]
