    In unrelated news, Fatty McLardass (known by friends as Tiny) is suing Burger King because it ran out of whoppers, after he ordered his 75th one in one visit.

    An uncomfirmed report is coming in about a child lost in the grand canyon, though someone at Burger King has allegedly been heard to have said that "Tiny just sat on him"

    They should post these losers' gamertags so they get mocked each and every time they log on to play.

    Agreed. The amount of stupidity needed to command such a suit is beyond comprehensible.

    When my cable or my lights go out, I don't think "hey I should sue Comcast or sue Memphis Light Gas and Water". I get on the phone, report the outage and read a book while I wait for it to be fixed.

    These are obviously gaming zombies who live in their parent's basements and only walk outside once in a blue moon. They have no use for books or other sorcery. Reading? Bah!

    :cmad:

    [Do you think that they ever considered the fact that the staff who keep the servers running smoothly were on a vacation? I, personally, find it hilarious that this lawsuit practically declares, "Your employees can't take breaks or spend time with their families because WE need to play online games at optimum efficiency all day every day!"]

    Instead of this, people should be suing Atari for releasing DBZ budokai Tenkaich 3 on wii with a huge flaw in the online, and completely neglecting to fix it.

    The thing about lawsuits is that the good ones are grounded in reason and common sense, like the family that is suing Cigna for denying their daughter's liver transplant because they (Cigna) decided that organ transplants are "an unproven and experimental procedure", and hours after they reversed their decision, she died.

    However, this lawsuit is up there with a family suing McDonalds because their son became Fatty McLardass since the parents lacked the balls and the ovaries to go somewhere else for their meals, or that old cun* who sued McDonalds because she spilled her coffee while she held between her legs, or the countless other lawsuits that leave everyone going "what a couple of dumbsh**s"

    They're suing for $5 million?!?! They do realize that a week of X-Box Live service only costs about $1 right? I guess it caused them pain and suffering to have to interact with the outisde world during that time. Yeah, it was annoying, but it wasn't that bad.

    Why do i have a feeling that the free game we get will end up being something as bad as Yaris or Carcassonance (SP? whatever the hell it is).

    Microsoft forces us to pay 50 dollars a year for membership, and they rip us up with the microsoft point system. The least they could do is maintain XBOX LIVE so it actually works. I wasn't losing sleep over this, or threatening to sue (which is ridiculous by the way) but it was a little frustrating that i couldn't connect to any games and it took me forever to sign in and such.

    Yeah; if only these games came with some mode of gameplay that didn't involve an internet connection...

    ...oh, that's right. :o

    Microsoft isn't holding a gun to your head forcing you to choose the gold membership when you first got your 360 and created an account. You had a choice of the offline account, a silver account which has everything the gold account has except 1) you cannot play multiplayer games online and 2) silver accounts get access to new downloads after a week, or the gold account which costs 50 bucks per year, or 5 bucks a month

    The points system isn't a ripoff. It's a good system to pay for things without having to constanly use a credit card, especially if you don't have a credit card.

    Computer networks will always have moments where they get overloaded or break down. I'm sure your internet service has gone down at least once, your cable or satellite went down at least once, the power at your home has gone down at least once. Yes it is annoying when one of those things go down or all of them go down. However, suing your internet provider, cable company, satellite company, phone company, or the power company because you were annoyed that their systems went down has no legal weight and will be laughed out of court.

    Uh you have to use a credit card to constantly replenish your points. Unless of course you spend the 50 bucks to buy however many thousands of points it is.

    Dont defend them.....
