Submission + - Microsoft promises new Xboxes for XGD3 casualties (

An anonymous reader writes: Microsoft is due to launch a new disc format for its Xbox 360 console tomorrow — and has promised those whose consoles fail to support the new format a shiny new top-of-the-line Xbox 360 S with 250GB hard drive as a replacement.
A Microsoft spokesperson admitted to thinq_ the number affected would be "very small," however.

The company also confirmed that the upgrade will detect consoles that have had their optical drives 'flashed' in order to play pirated games and undo the hack — meaning pirates will find their precious 'backups' cease to work.
