Yodobashi Snubs Xbox with Red Ring of Death Box Display


Major electronics retailer Yodobashi Camera’s huge flagship Akiba store has been displaying a broken Xbox 360 for some time, and it seems they are not even minded to cover up the glowing Red Ring of Death, a problem which has been the bane of both Xbox owners and Microsoft PR for some time now.



The signboard in front of the display is a nice touch.

Whether we chalk this up to malice or apathy, it is hardly a ringing endorsement of the console which Microsoft desperately hopes is back in the running in Japan, which may well be the case.

This was spotted by a sharp eyed 2channer on the 18th; it’s not clear whether they have yet bothered to fix it or at least cover up the wounded box, or how long the console languished prior to being snapped.
