Microsoft’s corporate vice president Peter Moore issued an open letter to the Xbox community stating that: “Microsoft has identified several factors that can cause a general hardware failure indicated by three flashing red lights on the console.
"To address this issue, and as part of our ongoing work, we have already made certain improvements to the console.
"As of today, all Xbox 360 consoles are covered by an enhanced warranty program to address specifically the general hardware failures indicated by the three flashing red lights on the console. This applies to new and previously-sold consoles."
"Microsoft stands behind its products and takes responsibility to ensure that every Xbox 360 console owner continues to have a fantastic gaming experience.”
