Xbox 360 Slim: First RROD Video shows Red Brick

Some potentially worrying news for those of you planning to pick up the new Xbox 360 slim line console from Microsoft, as a video appears to show the first case of a console failure.

It is not quite a RROD, but rather a Red Dot shown on the power brick for the console. If you watch the video, you’ll see the user following Microsoft’s instructions to disconnect everything, including the power brick – but to no avail. The power brick displays the red dot again after a few moments of rebooting the console.

For those of you who were thinking that the RROD problems were well and truly over with the new console, this video serves as a new headache for Microsoft. Take a look for yourself below and let us know your thoughts on this.

Has this happened to you or not? It would be good to know how widespread this problem actually is.
