Talk about hot games!

14 million defective Xbox units ...

Microsoft is recalling 14 million Xboxen to replace power cords that grow hot enough to burn the user or set fire to your house - surprisingly, they are actually offering to replace the things instead of the usual "you bought it, it's your problem now" attitude that they have become famous (and rich!) for. Despite 30 documented cases of burns and/or properly damage, Microsoft claims that this is simply a "precautionary measure".

No word on any future planned recalls to fix the the real problems ... a completely shitty controller, and a total lack of interesting games.
