New Xbox 360 Slim Shutdowns Automatically To Prevent Overheating
A new feature for the Xbox 360 Slim has surfaced. It seems that Microsoft has a built-in feature to detect whether the Xbox 360 is overheating due to improper airflow and automatically shutdowns to prevent possible hardware failure.
Destructoid reports: “If the 360 detects that it isn’t getting enough ventilation, it will give the player a warning message before entering shutdown mode, whereupon its power light will flash. The system can then be switched on again once the light ceases to flash.”
