Microsoft Corp., facing its second Xbox 360 headache of the summer, will replace parts of its Wireless Racing Wheel video game controllers after 50 reports that they overheated and released smoke.
The $130 steering wheel-shaped controllers mimic the physical sensations of race car driving for games such as "Forza Motorsport 2." About 230,000 have been sold to consumers worldwide, the company said Thursday.
When the unit is plugged into an electrical outlet, its AC/DC adapter can overheat, Microsoft said, adding that it’s safe to continue using the gadgets with battery power.
