In the past week, two more lawsuits have been filed claiming that the Xbox 360 leaves irreparable scratches on game discs -- bringing the total number of such cases to at least four.
All four suits are seeking class action status. A Microsoft spokesman told InformationWeek that the company has not received a significant number of complaints about scratched discs, despite the fact that "there are millions of Xbox consoles in use."
Some bloggers have suggested that the scratches occur only when the Xbox 360 is moved from the horizontal to the vertical position while in use. Others, however, report that their games were damaged while the consoles were stationary.Comments (1)
