Microsoft sued over Red Ring of Death defects


red-ring-of-death.jpgA bloke in California isn’t happy about Microsoft’s handling of the “Red Ring of Death” issues that plague the Xbox360. Reshelle Cable of Folsom, California, is alleging that an excessive number of Xbox 360 consoles have failed and that Microsoft concealed the excessive failure rate of its Xbox 360 consoles so that it could get into the market ahead of Sony and Nintendo.

Interestingly, the suit references a load of gaming trade websites. It demands that Microsoft disgorge all their profits they’ve made from the Xbox 360, and start a refund program that would compensate Xbox owners. Microsoft have so far declined to comment.
