Anyone with an Xbox is probably aware that Microsoft issued a recall a while ago for replacement power cords due to a 'fire hazard'.

What you probably haven't heard is that the whole thing is a cover up (click here :). The real problem ONLY exists in 1.0/1.1 xboxes with a foxlink power supply, is a problem with the xbox (the new cord only stops it burning your house down - your xbox is a ticking timebomb ready to blow up any day).

But Microsoft won't admit that your xbox is the fault, so they're recalling ALL cables but only sending the special replacements to people with faulty xboxes. Everyone else just gets a normal cable the same as their original.

Very very nasty shit.

(Yes, your xbox is a v1.0/v1.1. Can't remember if its one of the faulty ones tho :)
