Microsoft 'enhances' Xbox 360 support

Tony Carnevale

Next Generation tells us about Microsoft's new-and-improved Xbox 360 warranty support, including faster service and something the company calls "cost-free shipping." (As opposed to fat-free, perhaps?)

Microsoft is also offering to replace any first-party 360 game discs that are damaged -- even if it's your fault. The catch? You gotta send in your broken disc ... along with a cool $20. So why does Microsoft label this a "limited time offer?" You'd think they'd be psyched to reap another $20 for the same software you already spent $60 on and weren't allowed to back up. (Thanks so much, DMCA!)
