I have seen nothing in the news or anywhere else claiming that Microsoft has "updated" the console due to design flaw. There were admissions soon after launch as to problems with a small percentage of units but nothing ever was said about redesign or update. It was simply assumed these were normal issues for such a complex device at its first launch. I am one of those who have had a unit since launch day with no issues at all. I suppose I could be lucky, but if anyone has real information as to "update" to the 360, please post. I am assuming those who buy now from the 2nd or 3rd shipments are simply thinking Microsoft had to have fixed something and therefore their console is "the new updated version". If not, prove me wrong.
