It appears that a sincere apology and the promise of a free arcade game aren't enough to satisfy the unbridled rage of some Xbox Live users suffering from frequent outages -- three Texas residents slapped Microsoft with a class action lawsuit yesterday, claiming that the disruption of the service over the holidays is a breach of the Xbox Live Terms of Use contract. The suit claims the damages suffered from the outages exceed $5 million.

While we usually scoff at class action lawsuits for seemingly petty reasons, the plaintiffs have an excellent point -- Microsoft must have expected an influx of server-taxing Xbox Live subscribers around the holidays, yet they "failed to provide adequate access and service to Xbox Live and its subscribers." The ball appears to be in your court, Microsoft -- that better be one hell of a free arcade game.

Yea, but i still dont play 6 hours a day and I have a life, including a full time job and a girlfriend. These kids are just spoiled and probably have nothing better to do than complain.

those 3 residents are probably 3 lawyers who happen to have live and decided to use their legal knowledge to fuck MSFT

I mean it was down for like a week and during a holiday when most people have free time to play. Also since your paying for it and they drop the ball why not? 5 million is moronic but maybe a extra month free would be nice or free points.

I don't see anything wrong with this. Especially for a lot of people. I play maybe once a week and pay for my XBL account. The past month I've only tried to play 3 times and each time I couldn't find a game or log in or download content (which I paid for). I'm sure most of you would be pissed if your internet didn't work whenever you tried to use it

It was fucked up last night. They should at least give everyone one month free once it's working. It's fucking retarded.

I was over at Mason's when all that was happening. We waited for about half an hour trying to get the game going, but finally just gave up. Went back a half hour later, and it finally started working.

COD4 has been hit or miss on PSN as well. I read something yesterday about Infinity Ward upgrading all their servers to hadle more traffic, so it may be that and not XBL. I could be wrong though.
