    My brother got a new 360 for his birthday because his old one was banned from LIVE and he has a different warranty sticker on it. We got it from Best Buy unopened so maybe M$ caught on to people heating the stickers and taking them off? Here is a pic:

    That's the sticker that comes on machines that have been returned and fixed from MS
    Are they putting these on all 360s now?

    Must be so, this console was never opened and has info about the NXE in packets that came with the console. Best Buy just got this shipment of consoles in about 2 weeks ago for the holidays.

    Hmmm... If this is the case those stickers on the older consoles will become more valuable for people who opened their old 360's and want to send them in.

    They've been using them for a while.

    BUT, from looking at your picture, I've had a few with the sticker in the same place as yours. All I do is open the case as though the sticker isn't there. The case will just slide open with the sticker on one side.
    It's pointless trying to remove the whole sticker.
