Xbox Live Lawsuit Worth Pennies

Remember the class action lawsuit we talked about a few days ago that claimed over $5 million in damages for all for all Xbox Live downtime? Gaming Steve did some math and figured out that for a $50 a year Gold service membership, one day of outage is worth approximately $0.14. Tally that up to 6 days of outages, that comes out to $0.84, or a total of $2.52 in total for the 3 people who filed the suit in Texas.

Of course you can do all of the math you want until you read the Xbox Live Terms of Use; clause 16 states “We Make No Warranty: We provide the Service ‘as-is,’ ‘with all faults’ and ‘as available”. I guess people should just be happy that they are getting a free game out of the whole deal.
