There are two types of Xbox 360 owners. Those that have fallen victim to the Red Ring of Death and those that haven’t. Recently we had to add a third category of gamers, the victims of the dreaded E74 error. While the RROD was covered for three years, our E74 friends were having to pay $100 to have their consoles repaired.
Effective immediately, Microsoft has determined that the E74 error falls under the RROD umbrella and thus is covered by the three year warranty. This is great news for all of our brethren that have paid for repairs, since Microsoft will be refunding their money.
Just make sure to request your money back by November, 2009.
