xbox_live_lawsuit.jpgA trio of Texan gamers are looking to capitalise on the service disruption that Microsoft has been experiencing with Xbox Live over the past fortnight, writes the Seattle Times. A class action lawsuit has been filed against Microsoft alleging breach of contract over connection issues and server errors many were experiencing when trying to play online. The three plaintiffs claim that MS “failed to exercise reasonable care or competence in communicating information regarding the nature of services offered through Xbox Live” resulting in damages suffered. I’m no lawyer, but I bet there are some Twitter server logs that will argue otherwise!
