This is to be expected and not because it’s from Micro$oft ok? No first gen console ever made it out of the manufacturing plant bug-free.
We all know about the reports of Xbox 360’s freezing on Live, in the dash, and in-game (particularly Project Gotham Racing 3). Well Microsoft have finally spoken about the problems to Reuters.
Microsoft spokeswoman Molly O’Donnell told Reuters, “We have received a few isolated reports of consoles not working as expected.” She went on to say that, “With any launch of this magnitude, you’re bound to see something happening.”
Granted, the Xbox 360 launch was of a significant magnitude in that a world wide launch is a massive undertaking, but then again there are these shortages… Was anyone really prepared for the large amount of posts that people have been making all over Xbox 360 fan sites (this one included)?
O’Donnell further said that the number of calls they have recieved about the problems is small, and as they expected. People suffering from the problems can call 1-800-4MY-XBOX to troubleshoot the issues.
Here’s a video clip of Project Gotham Racing 3 crashing.
My recommendation? Wait for the modchips 😉
