Xbox 360 Slim Problems: Scratches Discs when Moved

The Xbox 360 Slim console hasn’t even been released yet, but we are already hearing about one potentially major issue with the console. A video put up after Microsoft’s E3 keynote event shows what happens when you move the console with a disc inside.

The video was taken by Destructoid, who managed to get some close-up time with the new console right after Microsoft’s keynote.

Destructoid tested the new console out with a fresh copy of Alan Wake. For some reason, one of their team moved the console, presumably to get a quick look at something on the back. What happened next is pretty obvious by watching the video below.

Moving the new Xbox 360 while a disc was inside completely destroyed it and who knows what damage it did to the internal components of the device. Just listen to the sound the disc makes when it happens.

Microsoft were quickly on the scene and stated ‘Yeah, you can’t do that’. Apparently, there is a sticker on the front of the console, which warns users of this exact problem – I guess Destructoid didn’t see it.

So for those of you planning to pick up a new console, you’ve been warned. Watch the video below and let us know your thoughts on it.
