Now the 360 racing wheels are faulty?

Bad bad Microsoft…

According to Microsoft this action is being taken after it was informed of a very small number of incidents of a malfunction in the Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel, in which a component in the wheel chassis may overheat and release smoke when the AC/DC power supply is used to energize the wheel.

Microsoft continue to astound me, how do they keep on getting the simplest things so badly wrong. Racing wheels are far from new and the technology is pretty stable, similar to DVD, yet they still manage to make a mess of both of them.

The only silver lining for us though is that we can’t buy the things here yet. ICASA has been holding it hostage for the past few months while they approve it’s wireless ability…

Who ever thought we would be thankful for badly run governmental departments?

    This kinda reminds me of the current issue with clothing Chinese goods… could the same thing be happening to electronics assembled in China?

    The ps3 is also made in China , as is almost everything else, the actual design of the electronics i’m sure comes from elsewhere as is the instruction on which grade of components to use.

    I hope my 360 remote doesn’t explode while I’m playing GoW! Or my headset! Even worse! 😉

    How can ICASA approve iBurst technology and not something from Billy.
