Microsoft bulks up its Xbox 360 warranty

Microsoft has made some new changes to the Xbox 360's warranty. The last change was made back in late December when the console warranty was boosted from 90 days to a full year. The latest changes, however, should go a long way to fill in any gaps that may have been missing/lacking in the Xbox 360's warranty service.

The first new change is free shipping for consoles in and out of warranty that are sent in for repair. Microsoft will send a postage paid box to return your console to the repair center.

For in-warranty repairs, customers are given an additional 90 days of warranty or the remainder of their existing warranty (whichever is longer). Customers are still responsible for repair costs on consoles out of warranty. However, when Microsoft sends you back a repaired console it will come with a fresh one-year repair warranty.

Other warranty enhancements -- as witnessed here -- include faster repair service. Microsoft is committed to repairing and shipping your broken console within five business days. Microsoft is also adding more Xbox customer care representatives and is bulking up its on-site technical support facilities.

The higher price in Europe is usually taxes. In most places in Europe, the tax (VAT) is ~17%, in Belgium it is 21%. With that higher tax also comes more services, and government funded things that usually are not funded (by that I mean, are not govenment funded in the USA). And, I belive that in the US prices are advertized without taxes, in europe a price is what you pay for it, and you don't have to start doing the math on the tax!

In the US, sales tax is usually between 0 and 8.5%. A far cry from the 21% VAT in Belgium. There's a reason it's not advertised - it's because 8 cents on the dollar is not really signficant, whereas a quarter on the dollar is.
