Report: Kinect causing RROD in older Xbox 360 models?

Posted By | On 05th, Jan. 2011

According to the official Xbox 360 forums, numerous Xbox 360 users are encountering issues with their consoles when trying to connect their newly purchased Kinect devices to the console.

The issues range from being minor to being as severe as encountering a RROD.

“It’s very disappointing,” said one ten year old’s father, whose 360 RRODed after using Kinect. “We were planning to have a big New Year’s Day party with karaoke microphones and a Take That competition.

“But now the Xbox is just sitting idle.”

When quizzed about the same, a MS representative denied that Kinect was responsible

“There is no correlation between the three flashing red lights error and Kinect,” a spokesperson told the BBC. “Any new instances of the three flashing red lights error are merely coincidental.”

Well, one or two instances might be a “coincidence” however, the numbers seems to be increasing. Is any of you encountering a similar problem after connecting Kinect to your console?
