There is absolutely no way that a Kinect can cause an RROD. People are idiots and just want to find something to place the blame on, but the underlying cause of RROD is well known. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xbox_360_tech...problems#Causes
This is exactly the same thing as when people blame whatever the last game they played causing the RROD. No matter what game they were playing, with or without kinect they would have got the RROD.
its just speculation based on a few forum posts
this isnt news
Lol and if you actually go to the forum and read the posts complaining about kinect rrod's are filled with people refuting the claims. This is shitty "journalism" and definately not news.
hmm... i got an elite, but they fixed the RROD issues right ...?
i am guessing they did , since mine's been running smoothly even with Kinect .
Kinect+Broken XBOX's=People needing to buy a new XBOX 360 Slim.
Nice move Microsoft.
old news i knew this already i even knew it before kinect was released that it would do this
I think a new piece of hardware could cause complications if older models weren't made powerful enough to support the use of a peripheral device.
Either way, until masses of old 360's start biting the dust with the RROD right after using the Kinect for a short while, it really is just placing the blame for something that was going to happen anyways.
I'd support this if the Kinect wasn't powered by a seperate PSU on non-slim Xbox Models. On top of this the Xbox is still just doing the rendering and a bit of input registering. The Kinect is what see and interprets the movements so its unlikely to be making the Xbox work too hard. No extra load on PSU, no extra load on CPU/GPU=no extra heat.
Of course it can cause RRoD issues on older Xbox 360 models. Everything causes RRoD on the older models. It has nothing to do Kinect itself, its purely a matter of the longer you use a 360 (both in terms of play that day, and throughout your consoles life cycle), the hotter it gets inside and the more the motherboard warps causing the GPU to become separated from the board. That is why every time a new game got released (GTAIV, Mass Effect, Fallout 3, etc), a thousand people would scream RRoD. If all you did was put a DVD in and leave it running for 4 hours, even that could cause RRoD in said models if they were on the precipice. Its not a Kinect issue, its a "original Xbox 360s can't take extended use" issue.
Clearly this is just a case of people not understanding the technical side of things before they start placing blame. The cause of the RROD has been known for absolutely years and is in no way linked to a USB device)
Just switching the machine on may cause RROD issues on older xbox 360 model.
Just fixing the RROD on my older XBOX 360 model causes RROD on my older XBOX 360 model.
The older xbox models just kinda sucked when it comes to longevity....its either RROD or E74 take your pick...they both suck
Major nelson posted there maybe problems with non-slims using knect before it's release and none of you believed it.
Yes a few miss prints of a few games have caused xb360 damage. It's extreamely rare though. Early copies of halo 3 for example. One out of 10 thousand copies of the first batch cuz dvd drive failure.
Lol easy solution, get a Wii nobs.
Again, no there wasn't. Even if a disc were "misprinted" it would not cause a drastic hardware failure, they wouldn't be readable by the DVD drive, and if they were the worst that would happen is it would cause an innocuous crash, but again, not drastic hardware failure or cause the solder on the GPU to word and disconnect, that is what causes RROD. I would love to see a source/link for this misprinted DVD business.
just plugging it in to the wall can cause RROD
Also, Black PR.
