LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – A Florida man who claims Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360 scratches game discs has sued the company, saying the consoles are “negligently designed and manufactured,” FOX News reports.
In the lawsuit filed Monday in a Florida federal court, Jorge Brouwer says Microsoft has received thousands of complaints but has not replaced all scratched discs. The lawsuit seeks class-action status.
Brouwer said his Xbox 360 scratched two games, “Gears of War” and “Madden NFL 07,” and that Microsoft offered to replace them for a $20 fee. He is seeking more than $5 million in damages, according to the court filing.
