quote: 65nm “Falcon” consoles flocked to consumers during late September, which proved with its smaller die and heatsink that the newest hardware revision will run cooler. Despite Microsoft’s efforts in improving its manufacturing process, GameStop’s decision to stop selling its PRP shows a vote of non-confidence in the current reliability of the Xbox 360.
quote: “Effective immediately GameStop will no longer offer PRPs on new, refurbed, and used Xbox 360 systems. When prompted by the POS ‘Do you want a PRP plan added to this purchase,’ please press ‘Escape’ and DO NOT offer PRPs to customers purchasing an Xbox 360 system. Customers purchasing a new Xbox 360 system will still receive a 1 year manufacturer’s warranty from Microsoft.”
quote: But what about used consoles. No one in their right mind would buy a used XBOX from gamestop without any kind of warranty at all.
quote: Quickly following widespread reports that one-third of all Xbox 360 units fall to the dreaded Red Ring of Death, Microsoft extended its warranty to cover the specific hardware failure for three years from purchase.
