Xbox 360 Slim: Has Microsoft fixed RROD?

We have some interesting news to report to you now, as a info sheet from Microsoft’s new slim line console has revealed that the new unit is seemingly ‘incapable’ of providing a red light upon failure.

If you head over to Joystiq, you’ll be able to see the info sheet that they have claimed from one of their tipsters. It reveals basic specs for the new console, such as dimensions and some of the new features.

However, if you closely at the information, you’ll see that under the Ring Of Light heading, Microsoft has listed ‘Green Only. What does this mean exactly?

Does this mean that Microsoft has completely fixed the RROD issue, or does it just mean that the console will simply display a green light if an issue occurs?

You can bet that Microsoft will clear things up for us soon. In the meantime, let us know your thoughts on this. What are the chances of ‘GROD’ becoming a household term?

Did you not read about all the stuff they did to make the system run cooler? Think before you speak and make yourself sound like an idiot

The main reason for the RROD in the first place was the heat generated by the system (sure there was power brick and A/V, but a mass of the RROD was from the heat). The Xbox 360 Slim has a more efficient fan, as well as a new chipset that produces less heat. it doesnt surprise me that the RROD's have been eliminated. It is not the same product, its new and improved. I think the only problems with this system in the future is the A/V and fingerprints, Thats it! I cant wait to get my hands on my… Read more »
