    Default Kinect Causes Xbox 360s to RROD?

    got it from guru3d

    BBC News warns gamers with older 360s to steer clear of the new Kinect peripheral if they wish to avoid getting a dreaded RROD. Another article can be found on ZDNET. Of course, Microsoft emphatically denies any connection between the Kinect hardware and failure of the Xbox 360.
    So, what could be going on here?

    1. Nothing. Itís pure coincidence. Part of me is inclined to believe this since pretty much any new release for the Xbox (game, accessory or whatever) seems to generate reports that the new release bricked the Xbox. Truth is that the Xbox is just like every other piece of consumer electronics - itís build by the lowest bidder and has a finite lifespan. Itís quite possible that these consoles that would have died anyway, especially as most seem to be three years old and over.
    2. The issue is down to people pulling their console out of storage and starting to use it again. Disuse, dust, damp and so on can have an adverse effect on electronic devices.
    3. There is a problem with Kinect on older consoles. Itís a long shot but Iím not ready to rule it out completely just yet.

    So, this is where you can help me out. If youíre an Xbox 360 owner who has bought a Kinect and then later suffered the RRoD problem, let me know, either by dropping me a note via the contact form or through the TalkBack section below. Give as much information as you can - how old the console is, model, when you bought the Kinect, how long youíve used it, and what game you were playing before the console died. Iím curious to see if thereís any pattern to these failures.
