As long as your Xbox 360 was manufactured before January 1, 2006, Microsoft promises to fix any problems with it for free. Gratis. The company doesn’t admit there’s a problem with the early units directly, but says there are a higher than usual number of them coming in for repair. That’s as good an admission as you’re going to get from the company that still won’t admit (officially) that Windows ME was a failure.
