Remember the deadly red ring of death on the Xbox 360? Given that it literally killed off a ton of Xbox 360’s during its early years there may be doubts about Xbox One’s reliability. This obviously raises the question about what kind of warranty can players expect if the Xbox One gets struck by a similar issue.

Larry Hryb aka Major Nelson believes that consumers can expect higher levels of reliability from the Xbox One and they will receive the standard consumer electronics warranty for their Xbox One.

“Well certainly with the Xbox 360, we had some challenges at the launch. Once we identified that we took control of it. We wanted to do it right by our customers. Our customers are very important to us. With the Xbox One it is standard consumer electronics warranty. We are really excited about the reliability that folks will get out of the Xbox One. We had a lot of learning coming out of the Xbox 360 and we have put it in Xbox One. It has been in development for many, many years,” Larry said in an interview with Newegg Arcade.

He also confirmed that the Xbox One will not only support 4K resolution for entertainment media but also for gaming, but ultimately this will depend on the developers.

“Ye! We are really excited about that too. I am sure your audience knows that 4K is the next big thing. Xbox One is a home entertainment system that is built for future. It supports 4K gaming and entertainment. In fact we are shipping an HDMI cable that is 4K rated. So when you get your HDMI cable out of the box it is 4K rated. We are looking forward to bringing 4K capabilities to our consumers in the future, but it depends on the developers,” he added.

Xbox One is due on November 22nd in North America and United Kingdom.

    The other non Sony platform owners hating on Sony platforms are gonna hate regardless so i say let them hate because the results will speak for itself in volumes in end & most of them will disappear from the comment section around 6 months to a year after launch day of both consoles.

    “Our customers are very important to us. With the Xbox One it is standard consumer electronics warranty.”

    LOL, it doesn’t seem like your customers are THAT important to you if you are only offering them the “standard”.
    What is the standard consumer electronics warranty anyways? The warranties on my electronics range from 90 days to lifetime.

  • You are flat out wrong

    We’ve always known Larry Hryb is a liar, what else is new?

    All I know is I have had every system basically known to man (Non PC). I originally bought the 360 and used it since day one until about early 2012 when I got bored with it. This is when I switched to ps3. Let it be known between this time I have had atleast 5-6 Xbox’s crap out. 3 RROD and another 3 disc drives. PS3 to ME was alot funner. No more just COD/HALO.(mind you I do have 40,000 gamer points so I play alot of games). With ps3 I loved the exclusives more and I could NOTICE pretty well that ps3 had better looking games when exclusive. I also have a daughter who never played xbox ever, and once I had ps3 there were like 10 games she loved. Shes only 7. These are my reasons for going with ps4 . Also PS plus before xbox copied. BTW i never minded the ps controller, I actually like it. Also dead rising is lame and so is KI. Ryse doesn’t look to have replay value. now titan fall looks great. IMO. I don’t care about kinect and I don’t want to play 500 unless its for ps4 with a game.. To each his own!!!
