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.
