Always amazing about such type of lawsuit because X360 custom memory card hasn't been supported since the slim model came out.

Also, X360 has been supporting general USB flash drive for sometime now (even that's because of the lawsuit, it's a good thing for the gamers).

One thing that 3rd party never want to say about 1st party blocking the 3rd party product for xyz reasons. 3rd party loves to sue for the damages on not able to sell. But really if there was no block by the 1st party, can the 3rd party really have made that much sales?

If you look at the history of 3rd party suing the 1st party for different reasons, the 3rd party product was already selling poorly and the lawsuit is their excuse to get more money out of the 1st party.
