Defects of Xbox 360 and the RROD

They say technology couldn’t possibly be perfect the first time around. Many modifications should be done to perfect one or even lessen the problems a device may experience. Well, even the famed Microsoft experienced these problems, probably on a whole other level when they released their Xbox 360 on 2005.
People naturally have the capability to assess something and base their decision upon that assessment and observation. The Microsoft isn’t left out of this loop, they knew exactly what they’re getting into when they released the Xbox 360 but they ignored it. The Xbox 360 probably had the worst or if not worst, a really bad defect.
On 2008 this defects were released by “Venture Beat” and everything wrong about the Xbox 360 was released to the world. The game consoles were estimated to have a 68 percent defect rate while its competition at that time, the PlayStation 3 only has 2 percent. These defects resulted into overheated graphics chips, cracked heat sinks, underperforming graphic memory chips, and other issues. The Microsoft probably have foreseen these defects, though they may not have been able to afford to delay the launching of the Xbox 360 because of their war between the Nintendo and Sony.
The sign of the coming of these defects was three red lights from the Xbox 360 also known in the internet as the ‘Red Rings of Death’. This defect rendered the console to be unplayable in only a matter of years. The short lifespan of the Xbox 360 that often reaches its end after 2 years became the biggest problem for Microsoft. There were many lawsuits and repairs that were made in order for this problem to be fixed. They also had public apologies that probably made them lose face to Sony and Nintendo at that time. The expenses the Microsoft used up are estimated to have exceeded $1 Billion.
After that occurrence, Microsoft had to make solutions as not to worsen the situation. They have released a new processor for the Xbox 360 and later on also developed a new model for the Xbox series. Personally, if maybe they have delayed the Xbox 360’s released for another 2 years or so, and have observed it thoroughly, they might have been able to grab an achievement like no other. Their Invention, the Xbox 360, regardless of the problems it faced, it can still be considered as one of the most entertaining game consoles that may have revolutionized the gaming industry that will put it on another great development.
