I figured MS wasnt so stupid as to leave out the interupted service clause in their contract that pretty much every MMO has included in theirs for exactly the same reason. Apparently someone with to much money hasnt even consulted a lawyer yet.

True... Even if they were to win that case, every person would get... $3.00 tops?? Seriously, is that check even worth depositing?

Class action suits are so overused.

But really, since when did anyone expect anything Microsoft did to be stable?

anyone who actually tries to sue them for this should be punched in the face, stripped of the 360, and thrown outside. preferably into the wild.
