OSNews, Generic OSes As you've undoubtedly noticed, OSNews has been down most of the day. We're back up now, running like we always do. We rarely have this kind of extensive downtime, so in the interest of full disclosure, here's what happened. If you're expecting some sexy story - think again.

Microsoft, copying everything from Not-A-Pear down to the Xbox 360's overheating problems.

I must have been extremely lucky, I have a second-hand XBox 360 Elite that has never overheated or had graphics issues. My best friend's original white XBox 360 glitches like crazy, and I'm going to attempt to redo the heatsink for him sometime soon.

That said, mine won't play any discs so it's far from a perfect unit. Downloaded games and streaming content are excellent though!

IIRC, the original XBox 360 had RROD failure rates of about 30%, so the majority still worked - though with glitches ;)

I still remember the noise when turning one on though. It felt like someone brought an airplane reactor to my friend's room...
