5 million? I hope his 360 scratches his head off next.
Hes seaking Class Action so that would cover everyone who jumps into the lawsuit, which would include me since my 360 dislikes Activision games for some reason.
I'm guessing that guy moved his 360 with a disk in it....
Your 360 has good taste.
It would if it hadn't only scratched Call of Duty 2, Call of Duty 3, and Guitar Hero. TF and Spiderman 3 have been sparred.
My 360 scratched my Gears of War game. They told first it was because it was on unstable furniture(entertainment center) and then they recommended that I stand it up instead of laying down. Anyways, it still plays but Ive had to use a disc doctor on it about 5 times.
My 360 has not scratched any of my games.
I was wondering how long it would take before an American would sue.
And a nice bullshit response with the "it isn't widespread" comment.
Man, I've seen the word "lawsuit" way too many times in the past few days on this board.
Same here and I stand it up on it's side. Maybe this dude just isn't careful with his disks.
You know, we need to do something about the moron lawyers in this country. Give 'em a stamp card on their law degree, and after 3 moronic lawsuits, take away their license to practice or something. How did it go from, "I want to $120 in games" to "gimme $5mil". F'ing stupid.
Since he's seaking Class Action status the five million will be divided to any of the other possibly millions of people who would join the lawsuit.
As I've said my 360 scratched a few of my disk. It scratched the first two while it was vertical, both of which I was able to replace through the manufacturer and then the store. The third disc, Guitar Hero II, was scratched while my system was set horrizontal. Each time my system has been setting on a flat and stable enetertainment stand.
1UP has a good look into what can be causing these issues. It goes into the moving your console, I've never moved my system with a disc in it, 90% of the time I take my discs out of the system before I shut it down. The single time I've moved its orientation was the time I switched it rooms and this again was with no disc in it, CoD3 was already scratched and I didn't own GHII yet.
How many people read the manual...about like none. You should never leave the disk in the machine while its not on and also trust an American to sue, its like America's second past time next to shooting each other.
Also people who expect a disc to never ever get a scratch are just stupid, its going to happen and scratches don't actually stop the game from loading unless its a real deep thing, so fucking nit picky its beyond annoying.
Can I start with the European stereotyping now?
For those who do not know what this is about: It has something to do with a component near the laser, that pops up when the machine vibrates even slightly. Saw it on that show that was mentioned in the article, and it's a VERY sloppy manufactering error. Not even putting it in it's proper position helps, unlike what Microsoft said.
I was under the impression that disc scratching is normal wear and tear for a disc.
This current day = Lawsuits galore!
They still havent sent me my 360 back yet.
I wonder if this guy is related to the pants lawsuit guy. It's sounds just as dumb.
