    Microsoft Still Offers Boxes for Dead Systems at No Charge

    Sponsored Links
    A story [Register or Login to view links] earlier today via The Consumerist stated Microsoft had stopped offering free boxes to consumers to ship dead Xbox 360 consoles to replacement centers was recently cleared up.

    Here's the official statement:

    "Reports that Microsoft now requires consumers to find their own packaging for sending product to Xbox 360 customer support are inaccurate.

    Our policy allows customers to choose whether they would like Microsoft to ship them a box and shipping label or print an electronic label and ship their console using their own packaging in an effort to speed up the repair process." - Microsoft Spokesperson

    There you have it, if your system dies - hopefully sometime within the three-year warranty - Microsoft will still give you a free box, complete with packaging, to send your Xbox 360 off to virtual heaven.

    As far as I know they've never made the boxes available in Australia.

    North America only?

    Is it the same as the retail box or is it something special about these?

    nope

    no they are just plain white boxes. Microsoft doesn't recommend shipping the console in the original box. which is understandable even though who wants to steal a busted x box anyways.

    my xbox just died and the told me to print the label but sent no box (probably due to cutbacks). Now its by request and even then they may not send you one.
