    It seems that the new console from Microsoft has a few more problems. The Xbox 360 also scratches DVDs when it is placed horizontaly according th Hartware.net. This problem does not exist when the Xbox 360 is used in the vertical position. Hopefully the launch will go better here in Europe. I will make sure to tell you of problems myself, as I will be part of the crew for the launch here in Austria.

    How can it scratch DVD's in horizontal mode? Unstable drive bearings?? I can't think of another reason? Weird problem, but one that should be addressed in my opinion...

    How could microsoft have missed this? Did they even try their product ONCE before they sold it? Even a kid could find these flaws.

    Hmm... horizontally? strange.. looks like they learned from sonys PS2 mistake with the vertical problems, but apparently forgot to make sure it worked horizontally...
