My UPS Driver Feels My Xbox Red Ring Of Death Pain

Oscar says a UPS driver scrawled the pictured note with on the box containing his refurbished Xbox 360. As a middleman between irritated gamers and Microsoft’s repair/refurbishing machine, the driver no doubt has much experience in swapping out dead consoles for refurbished units. And as the note reveals, he has his share of hands-on heartbreak with the notorious Red Ring of Death.

The note reads:

“I hope this one last(s) you. I’m on my 4th Xbox in just under 5 years. … Tear.

Love, UPS

Oscar says he received a new Xbox 360 rather than the standard refurbished unit.

“It has been working fine… so far,” he writes, noting he has had three 360’s keel over via the RROD.
