    So what is this Red Ring of Death?




    I know I may be getting on some of you guy's nerves by asking to many questions but I just wanted to know, what the the red ring of death does?
    I just got in to the xbox 360 I think 3 days ago and heard some talk about
    the red ring of death. Can someone tell me what the crap this is?



    Thanks.

    When there is a hardware failure they light up like that. Many of them overheat and die and get that, so they call it the red ring of death.

    No, 360s are shittily built and overheat very easily. Its not really if it will overheat, it is when.

    correction, they were* shittily built
    most of the problems that caused the ring of death dealt with the soldering or something around the 360, but thats been fixed which dramaticly decreased the number of defected units

    It has been improved, but not completely fixed. They fixed one of the reasons, but they can still overheat. I think mine is going to die soon, as it is making grinding noises.
    I can get a pic someone posted on PS3Chat, of an Elite with the red ring of death, just a few days after it was released.

    The ring of death is two sumos and Godzilla circling you.

    The ring of death was occompanied by tons of early made 360's, you shouldn't have much of a problem if you buy new.

    well of course not all of them are going to be fixed
    but all you need to do is pull out the power cord a little or something like that and the ring of death will come..........
    edit: i found that thread and posted a reply pwning everyone thinking that picture was great
