The Elite promised a lot. The next step in HD gaming with the HDMI port, the next step in storage space with the 120 GB HDD, and hopefully the next step in fixing hardware issues. Americans snapped them up, with Sold Out signs everywhere. But hardware problems are reportedly still cropping up.
The above video is one of apparently many Elite systems that are having problems. Disc scratching and the “Disc unreadable” error are problems that plagued the original Core and Premium systems. It was hoped that the problems would be fixed, but reports are suggesting otherwise. The three red lights have been arising as well. Not good news.
Good news for Microsoft though is that the system has been a sell out on day one. Amazon.com, offering pre-orders, sold out as did high street stores apparently.
Have you picked up an Elite system yet? Did it crash out on you as soon as you plugged it in?
