A video games console that will die, eventually.
The second generation of Microsoft's video games system, Xbox. It is cool, enjoyable and a successful attempt from Microsoft except the fact that it will eventually die.
There are several causes of death: a heart attack (RRoD in term of the 360), E 74 error, overheating that causes RRoD...etc.
"Dude, my Xbox 360 died last night. The cause of death is (a heart attack) RRoD'. The good news is I think a can use it as disco lights from now on."
"E 74 killed my 360. Curse you Microsoft!"
