- According to GameSpot, Microsoft is back in court defending its oft-maligned Xbox 360 hardware.
An Oak Forest, Illinois, man filed suit against Microsoft in the Northern District of Illinois - Eastern Division earlier this month, saying the console maker has been unjustly enriching itself by selling Xbox 360 systems that it knows contain a material design defect.
To quote: The alleged defect is presumably not the infamous "red ring of death" issue, as Microsoft admitted that flaw in July of 2007, months before the plaintiff purchased his system.
The plaintiff wants his complaint approved for class-action status and to be awarded actual damages or other restitution determined during a trial. Additionally, he wants a court order preventing Microsoft from continuing to sell the Xbox 360.
