Banned PSN player sues Nintendo and Microsoft

GamePolitics.com writes:Erik Estavillo, the Resistance: Fall of Man gamer who sued Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) over being banned from the PlayStation Network has targeted the remaining two major console makers in a new lawsuit.

Microsoft Corporation and Nintendo of America are defendants in a federal complaint, which was filed November 18 in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of California.

Microsoft is being sued for a "red ring of death" affecting the plaintiff's Xbox 360 console. Estavillo notes that as he is disabled, he cannot afford to pay the "well over $100" fee to fix the console, nor can he afford to purchase a new one. He feels "that Microsoft should have to bear the burden that is now put on the shoulders of this disabled plaintiff."

Bilbo652863d ago

I'm suing Sony for not making their tvs in braille

Proxy2862d ago (Edited 2862d ago )

Looks like MS might be out a hundred bucks, but I think they'll recover.

With any luck, Erik will win a Darwin Award. I think we can all agree he deserves one.

CimmerianDrake2862d ago

This guy could afford a PS3, and a 360, and a Wii, but can't afford the $100 or so dollars to get his 360 repaired, or buy a new one, and he can't afford to buy Super Mario Galaxy? If ever there was an epic fail, this is it.

ArmrdChaos2862d ago

They obviously have the money to burn on lawyers and clog up the system with this idiocy.

jadenkorri2862d ago

if you can't afford 100 dollars t fix ur 360, how the hell u gonna afford this lawsuit...

ThatCanadianGuy2862d ago

With you cheering for the 360 camp, i think things are fairly even..

lordgodalming2862d ago (Edited 2862d ago )

I will never get tired of that picture of Picard.

On topic: Hopefully somehow this Erik douche will receive my tax money to pay for this pointless drain on the legal system.

Proxy2862d ago

As if he's saying "Please wait a moment while I adjust my mind to comprehend the stupidity."

Xbox Avatars Shoe2862d ago

He is what we in the business call... a fvcktard

hey disabled guy here yes im disabled i have no legs and i got the the ylod on my ps3 and no law sue coming from me yes it was annoying but guess what? i fixed it my self and yes i'm disabled this guy is just a nut case that wants the world to feel sorry for him all i have to say to this guy is grow up the world doesn't work like that

Connoro2862d ago

If you've seriously got no legs, I think you should sue all the people who make driving game arcade cabinets because you can't use the pedals. That's clearly discriminating against you because, uh, you have no legs.

jadenkorri2861d ago

cause he can't stand on the wii board and is discriminating against him...

....this guy.....is an idiot....he should be gassed to death...

Darkfocus2863d ago (Edited 2863d ago )

I don't think any one deserves death for being stupid I mean he was clearly born mentally retarded he can't help it.

besides he's going to be so poor he'll wish he was dead after all the legal fees he'll get:P

D4RkNIKON2863d ago

The pope goes right for the death sentence, no foreplay straight to the point.

nan02862d ago

If he's too poor to handle a 100$ fee, how the hell did he afford to buy a 360, PS3, and a Wii?

Darkfocus2862d ago

not to mention the fact that just filing one court claim will set him back 150$

Must be hard to chase those ambulances being disabled and all.. This seems like a more appropriate target for you.

Bodyboarder_VGamer2863d ago

He's suing MS for the RRoD on his X360 and he is suing Nintendo because to unlock certain characters in Mario Kart he needs to buy Mario Galaxy... In other words, 2 games to make one complete.

For me that's more rational than half of the comments here.

dktxx22862d ago

He can buy all three consoles and yet, he's too poor to fix his 360?

No FanS Land2862d ago

that's where you see people with no sense of economy.

waltercross2862d ago

To top it off, he goes to court? first Sony and now
nin and MS? I Know court fees add up!.
of course if he wins then MS and nin will pay the
court fees, but he won't win, Nin fans, MS fans and
Sony fans can all agree this guy truely is an Idiot
and just doing this for attention because he can.
