The Xbox 360 console itself originally has the red ring of death. There is no way to avoid it if your system is prone to it.

In many ways, if your systme is prone to it, you better off getting it right away so you can send it off to Microsoft and get it fixed (considering it was bought legitly). I think it has more to do with the usage (or overheating) of the console.

It doesn't matter whether your shopping, on the arcade, or playing a game, as long as it's on, it will overheat with due time.

I do beleive the newer systems have been corrected, but don't quote me. I had the red rings about 6 months into playing with my console and finally sent it to Microsoft. I got it back and no problems since, and i'm going on about 5 months.
