Lawsuit Filed Against MS for Scratched 360 Discs

Microsoft's recent announcements conceding excessive failure rates and expanding the warranty period for the Xbox 360 console have not ended its hardware-related woes.

Following on the heels of a complaint filed last week in Florida, a class-action lawsuit has also been filed in a California court against the company, faulting the console for ruining game discs

Californians Christine Moskowitz and Dan Wood are seeking at least $5 million in damages for all 360 owners affected by the alleged design flaw. Their suit claims the Redmond-based giant refused to address their problems with disc replacements or monetary compensation.

While anecdotal reports have filtered about some consoles scratching discs across a variety of platforms, Microsoft has not issued a specific statement about the alleged problem.
