Xbox 360 fault situation worsening?
More Xbox 360 gamers than ever appear to be falling victim to the dreaded 'ring of death', with The Inquirer reporting that the UK repair depot at Havant is now getting 1,500 to 2,500 broken 360s every day. The centre is so over-whelmed with machines to fix that consoles are now being shipped off to another repair centre in Prague, as Microsoft struggle to cope with both a backlog and the further influx of problem consoles.
"A shocking statistic we found out though is that between 1,500 to 2,500 consoles get sent to Havant by three UPS lorries per day, to then be shipped to Prague for repair" one reader commented on 360-gamer.com.
"We were seeing about 30 a week before we pulled the plug on the service," explained Jeff Croft of Micromart. "We saw it over a period of several months and it was just getting worse. It began towards the end of last year. Once the twelve month warranty finished then we started to see more and more machines being sent in to be looked at."
