It seems that lately Sony can't do anything but rack up on lawsuits, but this time they aren't alone. Sony Computer Entertainment America and SQUARE-ENIX have both been slapped with a class action lawsuit seeking $5 million for selling copies of Final Fantasy XIII that allegedly freeze and break PlayStation 3 consoles.
Daniel Wolf, the San Diego resident that filed the lawsuit, said that Final Fantasy XIII has caused "severe wide spread damage" since its release. He says that not only him, but many other consumers have had their PS3's freeze and become inoperable. According to the lawsuit both Sony and Square knew of the "damage being caused by their defective products, and have chosen to do nothing about it." As well as stating that the two companies blamed each other.
I myself and various others I know that have played through this game on their PlayStation 3's and have never encountered a problem. Perhaps this guy got unlucky with the YLOD and overreacted; perhaps the game really did break his console; or perhaps his PS3 commited suicide because of the game it was being forced to play.
