Robert Byers probably didn't play through one whole game before bringing a class action lawsuit against Microsoft's Xbox 360. This Chicago man's proposed class action claims:

The company was so intent on releasing the Xbox 360 before competing next-generation machines from Sony Corp. and Nintendo Co Ltd. that it sold a "defectively designed" product.


Basically, Bob says that the power supply and CPU overheat, messing up the heat-sensitive chips and then locking up the whole console. Which we hear does happen, although not with everyone's box. But when Bob's Xbox 360 doesn't work, then the whole production line needs to be recalled. Oh, and Bob, if you didn't already know, the only folks who get a big payout on class action lawsuits are the attorneys. So don't start counting your cash just yet. Unless you are an attorney. In which case, call me—my watch is broken and I think it's a production line defect.
