The smaller Xbox 360 250 GB Elite models cannot physically display the oft-gotten “red ring of death,” according to a system specification sheet Joystiq got its hands on. Why is that, you ask? Because if (when) one of these new consoles experiences technical issues, it will display green lights instead.
That’s right — a green ring of light will be used to alert us when it’s time to phone up Xbox customer support. How delightful! There are a few other takeaways from the side-by-side specs, but really, nothing can top this funny design choice.
