Default New 360 Discs Incompatible with Some Consoles

Personally I would not be sad if I got a new Xbox, lol. But I would sure as hell be pissed with having to wait for the new one to arrive, lol.

They mentioned it was a 2009 Pro in question, I'll try and find some more info and let people here know exactly which 2009 Pro's cause the problem, My guess its the DVD Drives firmware being incompatible.

Now that I think about it, my 360 happens to be a Pro from 2009... :gulp:

I would not cry if I got a new Xbox. I would thank the fuckers and go off laughing my ass off.

From the article it seems that Microsoft is able to detect which systems won't support the new format via Xbox Live.

It is nice of them to be proactive about this, though I am somewhat puzzled why it's only Pro's from 2009 with the problem and not other systems, like arcades and elites.

How unsurprising, more problems with X-Box 360's. XD Everyone I know who has bought a console from Microsoft has had some sort of serious problem with it. Can't expect much from these guys, given their track record really.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

I mean, what the hell are you guys doing with your consoles? I have a twenty or so friends who have one, and not one, NOT ONE, has had any problems with them!
