I used to have an xbox before I became a true sony believer, we like our disks with hidden spy ware on them! Thats the sony way! But I tilted my xbox a little once with in disc in it and it scratched it, luckily it still works after a few tries, but if you turn on the xbox while it it on it WILL scratch your disc. A lot of people turn it to see the lights change to stay in the right order when they first get their box and decide how they want to sit it. It might be that some boxes have a problem but I have not heard anyone complain about discs that did'nt shut up when they realized the moved the console while it was running.

Only lawyers benefit from class action suits.

Class action means you sue a Company for wrongful, harmful or damaging action on behalf of a number of people experiencing said problem (yes damaging in a financial sense as well) and others experiencing the same problem may contact the Law Firm representing the case and have their claims added to the list up until a cut off date.....In this case apparently the Representing firm feels that 5 million should cover all the people who chose to sign up, and then even if found in fault the Judge may pick any number UP TO the set amount (5mil in this case), which means the actual settlement could be $1 up to $5,000,000.

Does the entire world have a 4th grade education or just N4G members.

this is like when that guy sued his local dry cleaners for millions of dollars for losing his pants, then he lost and had to pay thousands (maybe a million, i don't remember) of dollars worth of court fees... and then he still had to pay for his dry cleaned pants!.

Merovee3807d ago

That was a "CIVIL" case this is a Class Action.
