Marks and Spencers refuses to stock unreliable Xbox 360.

37 second read

In what can only be described as a complete embarrassment for Microsoft and the Xbox 360. Markes and Spencers in the UK has decided to not stock the Xbox 360 at all due to it’s reliability problems.

M&S offer a 2 year guarantee on all technological products and they felt they couldn’t take the chance of doing that on the Xbox 360.

They have obviously not heard about the new 3 year warranty that Microsoft offers. Either way though it’s not good when retailers don’t want to stock your product even when it is selling really well?

    Since when did Marks and Spencer start stocking consumer electronics? Last time I looked they were primarily a clothing a food retailer…

    “In 2006, M&S opened a Technology Department in 13 flagship stores”

    I had to look it up as well 🙂

    An update to the story though, M&S don’t seem to stock the Nintendo Wii either. I wonder if they want to blame that on reliability issues as well?

    Hey, I am also hoping although I got the PS3 primarily for HD movie playback seeing its alternative HD-DVD isnt available in SA via local retailers as yet.
