It appears that the Xbox 360 is not the only Microsoft gaming product that can be faulty. Microsoft has announced plans to provide a free retrofit for its Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel which fixes a malfunction in the chassis that may cause the device to “smoke” when the AC/DC power supply is being used.
According to Microsoft, there haven’t been any reports of fire, personal injury, or property damage so far but the console giant does not want to take any chances (of lawsuits I?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢d imagine). The wheel should run fine on battery power however.
If you have a faulty steering wheel you should take a look at the company?¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s support page and arrange for it to be picked up and repaired for free.
