Microsoft has announced it is offering a free retrofit to the Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel as a “precautionary measure”, due to what is described as “a very small number of incidents” where a component in the wheel chassis overheats. Although Microsoft insists there have been no reported incidents of fires when the power supply is used with the wheel, there have been incidents of smoke emanating from the chassis. No examples of injuries or property damage have been reported as a result of the problem. Microsoft is advising owners of the Wheel not to use the AC/DC power supply until they have obtained their retrofit, although no problems should occur when using battery power. Owners are being directed to www.xbox.com/support to register for the free retrofit, while the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has already been contacted over the issues.
