Xbox 360 book author digs deep into the Red Ring phenomenon and how much damage it's caused for Microsoft.
VentureBeat's Dean Takahashi, author of The Xbox 360 Uncloaked: The Real Story Behind Microsoft’s Next-Generation Video Game Console, has an interesting six-pager up that takes a long, hard look at the Xbox 360's Red Ring of Death phenomenon. While the topic has been beat to death over the last couple of years, Dean's piece definitely brings some new insight to the story, and also serves as a great primer for anyone wondering how, exactly, Microsoft has let this issue get so huge.
Check it out here if you're looking for a sizable Friday morning read, and take some time out to answer these questions for me. Do you still worry about the Red Ring? Do you feel that Microsoft has done enough to fix the issues? It's gotten to a point where we don't really hear much about the red rings anymore, but is that because it isn't happening as often, or because everyone is sick of hearing about it?
Would it sound like bragging for me to admit that the Xbox 360 I got back at launch still works just fine?
