New 360 has a mind of its own?

It seems that Microsoft has given the new Xbox 360 some brains. As stated in my previous post, there is no more Red Ring of Death(RROD) but that doesn’t mean this console won’t make you see red.

Looks like we’ll have a red dot to warn us it’s time to put up the shades and expose our pale skin to the sunlight. Although this will be highly annoying if it happens in the middle of a game it is relatively preferable to the death of your console.

RROD is no more on the new Xbox 360

That of course doesn’t mean it won’t break. There is just a new error system that I am sure we will create a funny name for in the future.

What this basically means is that you just literally won’t see any red lights. But the hope is that the new systems will have the lowest failure rates of all the past 360 systems. Makes sense since they’ve had a ton of time to work on it since the first 360 generation in 2005.

So gamers if your current system is making you see red, I suggest picking up the new system if you have the cash.

Green Means Go

What a beautiful sight to see on my staircase after I got home from work yesterday. A UPS box containing my replacement Xbox. I ran it upstairs and hooked it right up to my lonely TV. I am whole again.

Ok so yes, I missed it quite a bit. My Nintendo DS defiantly kept me entertained during my spare time but it doesn’t connect to Netflix. One of my bedtime rituals is to flip through the instant queue and watch a little something before heading to dreamland. Tons of things to choose from and no commercials. What could be better.

Time to catch up on my ODST while the countdown creeps closer and closer to Modern Warfare 2.

There’s also the new Xbox Live update to look forward to. I signed myself up for the preview program. Waiting for the email saying I got in. Facebook and Twitter right on your Xbox 360. Lets see how that goes. I’m sure I will have plenty to say about it.
