    So they simply replaced error codes with another...?

    Hmm.. just noticed it claims the original Xbox 360 uses 2W of power in that chart. That's not true. My Falcon based 360 uses about 13W when it's just plugged in and not powered on.

    It'll still break. They only removed the red light.

    So basically it's FGROD (Flashing Green Ring of Death) now [​IMG]
    Still, I always wondered why there was a RROD in the first place. I mean, the fact they include such system must mean they knew it'd be broken quite easily...

    What the fuck... Who is afraid of RROD? That thing was long gone I thought. I thought the new thing was the E74 shit. Anyways my Xbox never breaks so I'm fine. If it does I will get the new one.

    This doesn't change the fact it may break, only the chances are slimmer now.

    Am I the only one who gets the generic "Board Message" stating "Sorry, but you do not have permission to use this feature. If you are not logged in, you may do so using the form below if available." When I click on the link at the top of the first post?

    Wouldnt say that, the Slims will probably just the same as original 360's. Only the color is made cooler [​IMG]

    I doubt this is gonna have the same overheating issues the original 360 had. Microsoft probably wants to redeem themselves. They probably tested this console over and over and over and over and over to make sure it wasn't gonna break down under too much heat.

    Its a connector that will power the kinect rather than having a seperate power adapter.
