Overheated consoles not really new…

64Airship reminds us that overheated new gaming systems, like the Xbox 360s aren’t really that new, take a trip down console gaming past…“Early Commomdore 64s had a similar problem with overheating brick power supplies. Commodore ended up beefing up the power supply dramatically. In the meantime, a healthy 3rd party market sprang up for replacement power supplies. Maybe Microsoft is just trying to stimulate the growth of 3rd party support for the Xbox?” Link.
