This is What the Xbox 360 S Overheat Looks Like

We saw a document that said that the Xbox 360's 'ring of light' isn't able to display any other color than green. This meant that the Red Ring of Death was a thing of the past, right? Well, sort of.

A gaming enthusiast on the NeoGAF forum has found that the Xbox 360 will now shut itself off in the event of an overheat situation.

Instead of a red ring of death, there's a Red Dot of Death – though it's more like a Red Dot of Warning rather than Death. In any case, it's good that the new Xbox 360 S is more thermally conscientious.
