While the Xbox 360 Slim significantly curtailed the spread of the dreaded Red Ring of Death, those of us who owned the original white Xbox 360 know all too well about the tendency of Microsoft’s console to overheat and die a tragic death.
I think we’ve all had our share of Xbox 360s go the way of the notorious Red Ring of Death. The same recently happened to Technabob reader Jasper Stevens, and he decided to do something about it instead of the traditional call Microsoft tech support; wait for cardboard coffin; wait for refurbished 360; pray it doesn’t RRoD again cycle.
Based on personal experience, I would have to guess that most of us have already completed this Xbox 360 achievement at some point in the last couple of years.
This Red Ring of Death achievement T-shirt is bound to draw a few chuckles from your gaming buddies, and maybe a few sobs from the ones who’ve lost a console or two to the dreaded RRoD over the years.
Though I’m not at all certain that a Red Ring of Death is something to celebrate, per se (they’re usually occasions of anger and misery in my neighborhood), I suppose it’s nice to take something awful and turn it into something cool.
