    There is an Xbox 360 update going live tomorrow and supposedly a very small amount of the older Xbox 360's will theoretically reject the update and refuse to play any disc games there after.

    If this happens Microsoft are willing to replace your console with the latest Xbox 360 - S - 250gb free of charge.

    Just thought it best to leave this here incase people are affected in anyway and to see where, if any, discussion goes.

    I barely ever play my 360. But I'll see if my launch (yes I said LAUNCH) 20GB works just for the hell of it.

    Come on rejection. A brand new 250gb for free would be fantastic :lol 
    I think mine is an 07 Arcade? Either 07 or 08. I dont remember.

    I doubt mine is old enough to reject it. I would totally welcome a rejection if I wasn't so into L.A. Noire right now...

    The beta was exactly this, and the 360 that was in this beta in our house didn't reject it. Nothing to fear.

    So if mine does reject it, I just send it off and they send me a Slim?

    Wait, how would I get my Hard drive onto a Slim if it did happen?

    You never send your hard drive back. If your console ever RROD or this problem arises, you make sure you take that Hard drive off and only send your console.

    With the slim you get a transfer cable so you can easily port the info accross

    Actually, I don't believe the S systems include a cable. However, Microsoft may be sending one for free with the replacement console in this particular situation.

    Sweet. I know not to send in my hard drive, but I knew it didn't fit on the new 360, thanks for clarifying!

    Wait, I got my Xbox 360 premium with 20gb, but later replaced it with a 250gb hard drive, is there still a chance of my console rejecting it, or is down to its hard drive and not the console

    Mine is the model right before they switched to the slim, with the older 250 gb hd. So, it might be on the list, but I'm not counting on it.

    Ditto. For once I can't wait for my 360 to crap out so I can get a new 250GB 360 Slim for FREE! :D  Come on, outdated original 360, crap out on me tomorrow! >_<

    Ugh. Microsoft is going to have to deal with so many people sending in systems that don't have anything wrong with them, or have had *accidents* to make them not work.

    I wonder if my 'fat' model will survive the update.

    I must admit that I'm ignorant of what Avatar Kinect is.
