Microsoft is Being Sued for $5 Million Over Halo 3 and Xbox 360 Problems

A federal lawsuit was filed against Microsoft and Bungie recently alleging that Halo 3 “routinely, consistently, and systematically ‘froze,’ crashed,’ or ‘locked up’” the plantiff’s Xbox 360. The plaintiff is Randy Nunez and he is seeking class-action status along with $5 million in damages plus costs and attorneys’ fees.

The lawsuit also claims that “many consumers” have these issues, making their console “totally inoperable” and the court papers site “industry Internet web sites, weblogs, and message boards” as the sources to prove these problems exist. It also states that Microsoft and Bungie have “received numerous complaints” from consumers over the phone and on their support forums without admitting these alleged Halo 3 issues to the public.

    I got Halo 3 for my birthday but I haven’t had time to play it yet. Maybe based on the information above I should avoid playing it. :)
    Have any of you had any problems while playing Halo 3 on your Xbox 360?

    We all know the Xbox 360 has had hardware problems in the past, but is one particular game really to blame?

    Have you had any games for Xbox 360 or any game system that can consistently lock up the machine even though all other games work fine?

    If you do, then do you think it is the hardware or a bug in the software that is causing the problem?

    I play Halo 3 almost all the time( Except for the past 2 weeks cause my Digimon World Dusk has taken over all
    other games I play for now ) and I have never had any problem with the system freezing.
