New Study Shows Xbox 360 RROD On The Decline
Great news for Xbox 360 owners, RRoD errors appear to be on the decline! SquareTrade, the largest independent warranty provider, analyzed the failure rates of over 16,000 new consoles covered by the company for the past two years (2,500 PS3s, 2,500 Xbox 360s and 11,000 Wiis). The study seems to indicate that since the Xbox 360 has started using the “Jasper” chipset, which is a smaller and cooler chipset, the Xbox 360 has seen a lot less “Red Ring of Death” errors. Which is good, I guess, except for the fact that mine doesn’t have that chipset, so I’m essentially screwed.
