* MS Sued over Xbox360 updates

Xbox/Xbox Games
Apparently, some users had their Xbox360 crash due to fall's latest Xbox Live update, and now they're suing Microsoft.

As it turns out, the poster was telling the truth. GameSpot obtained a copy of the original complaint, which was filed in a Washington district court. The suit accuses Microsoft of breach of contract, negligence, and violation of the state of Washington's Consumer Protection Act (CPA). Stating that the affected consumers number in "at least the thousands," the suit contends that Microsoft is refusing to repair or replace the broken systems unless the users pay "up to $140" to ship it back to the company.
Microsoft's reply is that they "fixed" the update, and that anyone with a bricked Xbox will be able to get their console fixed for free just by calling the support line.
