Microsoft is 'confident' that Xbox One won't suffer from RRoD disaster

Microsoft says Xbox One won't suffer from RRoD that plagued the Xbox 360

Microsoft is "confident" that the new Xbox One won't suffer from the same Red Ring of Death problem that the Xbox 360 originally suffered from. This is good news for gamers who suffered at the hands of the RRoD as it was frustrating and often just months after purchase.

Phil Spencer, head of Microsoft Studios, says that Microsoft learned a lot from the Xbox 360 launch and put it towards future Xbox products. He notes how the Xbox 360 Slim, or Trinity, had a very low rate of failure.

 

The last Xbox was Trinity [Xbox 360 Slim] and our success rate on Trinity was very high. We learned a ton from the 360 launch and we took care of our customers with the extended warranty, but I think Trinity is telling. Xbox One is built by the same Trinity team with the same learning that went from Xbox 360 into Trinity, and I'm confident in the quality of the new box.

 

There is still quite a bit that the general public doesn't know about the Xbox One. More details regarding the console should continue to show up ahead of its launch, which will likely take place towards the end of 2013. We'll find out more on June 10 at Microsoft's E3 briefing.
