Microsoft's Shane Kim Speaks on Xbox 360, HD DVD Uses

Microsoft says HD DVD for Xbox 360 is still enjoyable
With Peter Moore gone to EA Sports, Microsoft Game Studios corporate VP Shane Kim is now one of the more public figures behind the Xbox 360. Speaking to GameDaily, Kim answered several questions regarding the current state of the Xbox 360 business.

The black eye on the Xbox 360’s reputation is the apparent fragility of the hardware. Early units were especially prone to the “Red Ring of Death,” indicating a hardware failure. Microsoft has since made numerous revisions to the Xbox 360 hardware, and is backing up all consoles with a 3-year warranty against the defect.

“We certainly regret the issues that some customers have experienced with Xbox 360, which is why we took the step of extending our warranty to an unprecedented three years,” said Kim. “However, we feel very confident in the quality of the consoles that we are producing, and our hardware experience and talent continue to grow.”

Microsoft chairman Bill Gates said earlier this year that the company now has a commitment to make the Xbox 360 “the most reliable video game box out there.” [Dailytech...]  [Comments...]
