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.
