Are Microsoft being overly risky or incredibly kind?

Have you spotted those articles floating around about how the NXE that is coming in the next couple of days is going to be brick another huge chunk of the existing Xbox 360’s in the marketplace?

Well the rumour goes that everytime a new dashboard is released the older Xbox 360 models go into distress and RROD on everyone and now that Microsoft are about to release their biggest ever dashboard update every Joe Blogs and their dog are expecting yet another round of RROD.

And the conspiracy theorists are pointing to the fact that Microsoft are now releasing this NXE just outside the 3 year RROD warranty… except for a minor fact.

They are not, they are actually releasing the NXE on the 19th of November 2008 which is 3 days before the warranty runs out. Granted it’s only three days but it does seem like an absurd risk to me, why not just release it on the 15th of December and be done with it?

I never believe corporations are just being nice but I really don’t see why they are taking this risk.
