Xbox One Users Complain About Noisy Disk Drives

Microsoft Help Line

Microsoft Gaming Devices

After the launch of Xbox One in November 13, 2013, some of the users have reported that the disc drive in the console is making loud noises. Some others have also complained to Microsoft help line that they are unable to read discs in the program. However, Microsoft was quick to respond to these complaints and the software giant has decided to replace all the faulty consoles.

Microsoft help line says, “The issue is affecting a very small number of Xbox One customers”, and that “We’re working directly with those affected to get a replacement console to them as soon as possible through our advance exchange program.” The issues arising about the console could seriously affect the sales of the device. Xbox One is posing fierce competition to Sony’s PlayStation 4. However, Microsoft is concerned whether the new issues would avert customers from choosing Xbox One, and opt for PlayStation.

Microsoft has already released Xbox and Xbox 360, which did decent performance in the market. However, these consoles could not outperform the sales of their corresponding PlayStation competitors. Now, with Xbox One, Microsoft hopes to surpass PlayStation 4 in terms of numbers, and therefore wishes to fix the newly arisen issue quickly. The official spokesperson of Microsoft states, “We know that with a hardware launch of this magnitude customers will have questions and we have many avenues for customers to get the answers they need and get back in the game as soon as possible.” He further adds, “Rest assured we plan to take care of our customers. Any customer who believes they are experiencing an issue with their Xbox One should reach out to us.”

Storage Space

Microsoft Gaming Consoles

According to Microsoft help line, Xbox One comes with Xbox OS and a memory of 8GB. It uses HDMI ports for input functions and has various connectivity modes like Wi-Fi, USB 3.0 etc. Microsoft help line says that the device comes with a storage space of 500 GB and an AMD 8 core processor. However, a small drawback of Xbox One consoles is that they do not have backward compatibility. This means Xbox One will not be able to communicate with Xbox 360 consoles, which would certainly disappoint many users.

On the other hand, Xbox’s rival PlayStation, is not also free from troubles. Some of the users of the console have reported faulty HDMI ports on the consoles. However, we are yet to receive an official response from Sony about this issue.
