Microsoft Reports Xbox 360 Glitches

Microsoft Corp. said Wednesday it had received isolated reports of technical problems with its popular new Xbox 360 videogame system.

Some owners complained that their systems were crashing during game play, sometimes with error messages popping up.

"It's a few reports of consoles here and there not working properly," said Molly O'Donnell, a spokeswoman for Microsoft's Xbox division.

"It's what you would expect with a consumer electronics instrument of this complexity .... par for the course."

Yeah, this is to be expected. Not only are they shipping millions within 2-3 months, this is the first iteration of the hardware. There may be a couple of manufacturing kinks to work out.

Though I'm not sure about this part:
"O'Donnell urged anyone with Xbox problems to call 1-800-4myXbox or go to If the problems can't be resolved immediately, Microsoft said it will pay to ship the console overnight to a repair center, overnight it back once it's fixed, or ship a replacement."

Most people I've read who have called, were told it would take about 10 days to turnaround the repair. Not good.
