    Anyone notice this comment on xboxyde? :-

    'Note the beautiful crash at the end of the first action in the video, lots of games crashed during X05, looks like the consoles were overheating.'

    Hopefully whatever was the cause of those problems will be resolved by the time we get our hands on it! I would guess it must get warm in that retail pod though unless there's some cooling built into it.

    This seems to be a common problem with pods. Our local GAME store had terrible trouble with its XBOX pods crashing and failing due to heat build-up, but neither of our XBoxes (yea! we have two..) has ever suffered a moments worry.
    I've got mine pre-ordered with Condemned and Quake 4. Can barely contain meself!

    Yeah, the console will have been tested to be fine in the home environment but when you've got one stuck in a plastic pod, running none stop all day then you are going to get overheating.

    im sure these are final dev kits it said also so i imagine theyve been punished with gametime and being stuck in a pod its hardly surprising.

    However, given the quick turnaround that these will be in shops I do anticipate that there will be some problems with certain batches. It's not often you get a glitch-free launch!
