According to Microsoft the new Xbox 360 Slim cannot Red Ring "by design". Which means, quite plainly, that they put no red lights into the machine. So, we have to wait to figure out what colour the new ring of death will be.

You may now go back to doing what you were doing before you read this.... now... seriously stop reading and go away....

If you can't fix the error, either call it a feature or redefine the term "error" in the dictionary.

Doesn't matter what the colour or pattern of the failure indicator is, unhappy gamers will give it a name. Deal with it. Unless of course there is no indicator at all, and the machine simply doesn't turn on (not good for Tech Support).

"Black Brick Of Death", anyone?

Was that a shot at Microsoft, or masculinity in general? Or maybe a serious question? Insufficient data!!!
