Commemorate Xbox’s most iconic failure with this $25 Red Ring of Death poster

The Red Ring of Death is one of videogame industry’s most infamous fiascoes. It’s basically the Xbox 360 version of the Blue Screen of Death—seeing either one means you’ve got real trouble. The Xbox support site describes it prosaically: “Three flashing red lights mean that the Xbox 360 console or its power supply has a hardware problem.” But that really doesn’t convey the scale of the situation, which was nothing short of catastrophic.

Apparently now, though, the whole fiasco is far enough back in the rear view mirror that Microsoft can actually turn it into a historical touchstone—almost a treasured memory, really—and turn a buck on it in the process: You can now buy a Red Ring of Death “premium print” from the Xbox Gear Shop for $25. The slightly glossy, fingerprint-resistant print is to “commemorate” the release of a six-part documentary of the Xbox console, one episode of which recounts the Red Ring of Death era.
