    There is a clear case of bad design and although I dislike the method used to get to the appeals court it was unjustly (in my opinion) denied class action status in the first place... this loophole could be fixed by having a way to appeal that sort of decision, something that seems to be missing and so the error there is in the law, not this particular class action case.

    Since there was also a clear design flaw that Microsoft knew about and purposefully did not fix for what is a minimal sum that then caused unknowing consumers to have their property destroyed is criminal. Warning stickers on a case don't mean it's okay (and I can't believe it would have cost less than 50 cents of worker time and printing costs to have those added anyway so why not just make the fix!) - would you accept that it was okay for a car manufacturer to have a sticker saying "don't press the brake and accelerator at the same time" when doing so would cause the car to explode? No. That's not an acceptable solution (whether they tell you or not what would happen and whether or not anyone aggravated the problem by pranking people or encouraging people to do it...) it shouldn't be a probable consequence in the first place! (Every CD drive I've seen the insides of (and it's many thanks to students breaking them one way or another) didn't have any sharp parts inside that might even remotely possibly damage the discs inserted  - excepting those added by users).

      In other words Microsoft (and co.) want to be able to see shitty hardware by sticking labels on it do avoid the legal consequences - bull**** (and anti-consumerist).

    I feel like this is the result series of bad decisions from every side of the issue, and everyone affected should blame themselves. But from a legal/technical point of view, it should get thrown out.

    Bella is so cute.

    I think it is about time for this to happen.

    I remember Nvidia have to do the same with the GeForce 970 because those cards were like a 3.5 GB instead of the 4GB like they were advertised.

    I never scratched a disk with a gen1 360, because i had it set horizontal, and never moved it with a disk inside, just like the manual said

    $0.50 per console when you ship 5,000,000 units (or whatever the first year sold) is still $2.5 million. It's not just a can of soda, it's making or breaking a console launch.


    That aside, don't move your console once you hook it up. It's not designed to do that.

    I've lost quite a few games over this problem with 360. So I'm definitely on the consumer side here.Clear bias is very clear.
    RIP all those old games
