It is important to stress at present time this news comes from one source.  It is neither confirmed or denied by Microsoft at time of writing.

It is being suggested the Microsoft Kinect could be responsible for a “red ring of death” hardware failure of the 360.  As I say, this is a suggestion from one source which says:

Microsoft Kinect is giving sleepless night to many of the Xbox 360 owners as its causing a many issue to them and the most notably issue is “Red Ring of Death”……….Many such complaints on the forum points to Kinect as the main culprit for RROD problem, however there isn’t any solid and concrete evidence to proof the same….

Another story which will develop in the coming days and I strongly recommend you keep an eye on Gamepur (and the 360 forums), especially if you own a 360.
