Default Microsoft Showcases RRoD at GDC 2008 - Hilarious

RyLoS sent us this BBC-news video from the Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. The Xbox 360 console was set-up as a demo unit in an area dedicated to Microsoft's XNA.

This was intentional, MS wanted to show everyone what the RROD looks like since it isn't common.
