GDC: Red ring of death blights Microsoft’s stand, Waters swoops

Tuesday, 19th February 2008 08:09 GMT By Patrick Garratt

BBC journo Darren Waters has shot a video of an Xbox 360 RRODed on Microsoft’s GDC stand. The “news community” is having kittens over this.

“Unfortunately for Microsoft,” said Darren, “one of their consoles here at GDC has suffered the red ring of death, familiar to millions of people. Not million affected, perhaps, but plenty of people have had their consoles die. And now, one of Microsoft’s own demonstration models has died. That’s pretty embarrassing.”

We love you, Darren. Please take more videos of corporate fuck-ups this week. Take your camera to the EA party, definitely.
