Microsoft Pledges To Replace Xbox One Consoles That Are Too Noisy
No, this isn’t even close to being an RROD 2.0. Shut up.
The Xbox One is generally a well built piece of machinery with no reliability issues (such as of the type that famously plagued its predecessor), and no usability issues either. However, it does have one flaw (apart from being a hulking big black slab that looks like something right out of the 1970s, I mean)- it can be a tad too noisy at times.
Well, Microsoft has announced that it will be replacing any consoles that its users think are too noisy, free of charge.
“We have heard that a small number of Xbox One owners in some situations may hear a noise from the console that is too loud,” said a Microsoft spokesperson to CNET. “While this does not affect the safety or functionality of the system, we’re asking customers who believe they are experiencing this issue to contact Xbox Support. At the request of our customers, we are exchanging those consoles for new systems.”
Personally, I just think Microsoft is pleased that the biggest hardware issue they have to worry about this time around is noisy fans.
