Tiger Stripes On My Console Case?

My old XBOX broke about a year ago and after E3, I had to reinvest in a new one since there are so many good titles coming out. On top of that, Amazon had a great deal this week so I bought one. This is my first slim and when I took it out of the box, I noticed something kind of weird. It had some odd stripes along the outside of the casing. What do you recommend I do about it? See the URL below for an image of what I'm describing and thanks for your help =)

Bought a modded Xbox brand new from Amazon? I don't think so. It was not sold 3rd party.

The photo makes the console look like it is a color other than the factory BLACK that the 360s comes in. If that is the case then perhaps the console has been modded. To my knowledge MS has not sold any custom design consoles (such as the Halo and Resident Evil ones). And Amazon sells both BRAND NEW and USED products.

 

If the console is not BLACK (glossy or matte finish) then you need to contact AMAZON about a refund.

It is the matte black that the console is supposed to be. Maybe the reflection of the light has altered it a bit. The stripes don't look like a custom design, it looks like it happened while it was manufactured with the plastics.

I was bought brand new from Amazon and factory sealed when I got it.

hm. do you still have the receipt from amazon? you can also try to register your xbox on xbox.com through the support part. when you register, it should tell you if your warranty is still good or not. if it isn't, then you got a used xbox.

As you stated it may just be a manufacturing defect. As long as the console functions normally and you can connect to Live with it I would say go with it.

Interesting never seen this before, only time you would see it if sombody spray painted there xbox. You say it is brand new factory sealed so it must be a factory issue. You could try ringing support are wait for an answer here.

I called Amazon to make sure it shipped from their warehouse and not fulfilled by some other company. It was a brand new unit from their own stock. I will register it as well but I'm pretty convinced it is, in fact, brand new. It must be a manufacturing thing. Still odd though.
