Kinect Causing Newfound RROD?

Is the terrifying “Red Ring of Death” on the rise again?  BBC and Xbox forums seem to think so.

“I just got the Kinect for my xbox 360 (one of the original ones) with only 4 mg memory. I installed the update software that came with the system, went through the kinect calibrations and when I went to play the game [the] system froze. Tried this multiple times and got red ring of death (3 rings),” says a member of the Xbox Forum.

“Same thing happened to me. My non problematic 2008 360 pro got RROD after playing kinect 2-3 times (with light use),” said another disgruntled Xbox forum goer.

BBC Radio caller  stated “We plugged [Kinect] in the day we got it but only played it a few times before we got the red lights…  The next day when we tried it again we still had the red rings of death and haven’t been able to use it since.”

Microsft, however, states that there is “no correlation between the three flashing red lights error and Kinect. Any new instances of the three flashing red lights error are merely coincidental.”

Mere coincidences or  massive conspiracy cover-up?  You decide!
