£500m bill for Xbox red ring of death

Oh dear. English newspaper The Daily Mirror is reporting that Xbox 360 Elite consoles are also suffering from the now infamous RroD.

The report also says that Microsoft will face a £500 million bill to rectify the problem, although we’re assuming that’s just the $1 billion figure approximated on the warrantee extension last year.

Microsoft has issued a statement which simply says:

“The majority of Xbox 360 owners enjoy a great experience with their console.

“Anyone with a problem should call Xbox customer service.”

E3 is getting more mouth-watering by the minute.
