Microsoft has decided to stop using flashing red lights as the way a Xbox 360 will deliver error messages to players. Instead a warning message will appear on screen before (hopefully) any permanent damage is done to the console. One of the users of the Neogaf message board did an overheat test on the new Xbox 360 to test out the feature. It is nice to see a fail safe system installed. This could have saved 2 xboxes for me.

The RROD is dead! Long Live The Automatic Shutdown!
