New Xbox 360 warranty program will cost MSFT over $1 billion.
[link|http://www.reuters.com/article/topNews/idUKWEN917620070705?rpc=44|Reuters]:
Microsoft cited "an unacceptable number of repairs to Xbox 360 consoles" for the move. Xbox 360 customers who experience general hardware failure indicated by three flashing red lights will now be covered by a three-year warranty, the company said.

The charge will be between $1.05 billion and $1.15 billion, before taxes, for the quarter ended June 30, Microsoft said.
