In the past we’ve seen RatedRR on YouTube shoot at a bunch of gadgets, perform drop tests, and basically do all sorts of mindless destruction which we have to admit is pretty entertaining, albeit wasteful. Well it seems that they had a ton of Xbox 360 units leftover with the red ring of death, essentially rendering the console useless, so what did they do? Well they strapped C4 explosives to the console and recorded the entire proceedings in slow-motion, letting us enjoy the wonderful spectacle of seeing the previous-generation console go out in a blaze of glory, almost as if it were welcoming the new-generation with aplomb.

In fact the last explosion was done where the explosion formed the shape of an X, which is rather appropriate give that this is the Xbox after all! In any case we’ll try not to spoil the rest of the video for you, but if you’re into mindless destruction and wished you had his access to explosives to vent your frustration on your ruined Xbox 360, be sure to check it out in the video above.
