Microsoft may have announced they were getting rid of the famous Red Ring of Death in their newest version of the Xbox 360, but that didn’t do much for the actual problem of overheating. What does solve the problem is the Xbox 360 Slim’s ability to shut itself down when its vents are blocked to prevent turning your living room into a fiery inferno. To warn you that this is about to happen, the little power icon turns ominously red, and a warning pops up on the screen. Now we just need a name for this little light as scary as “Red Ring of Death.” The Red Eyed Reboot? The Evil Eye of Emergency? The Save Your Game Stare?
