Lawsuit Leaves Xbox Live Gamers in the Dark

Lawsuit Leaves Xbox Live Gamers in the Dark

Microsoft blogger Major Nelson says that a class-action lawsuit filed against the platform holder is prohibiting it from providing status updates on its recently troubled online gaming service Xbox Live.

“Unfortunately… a lawyer has decided to sue us, there is litigation, and once that happens I can no longer make a comment [regarding Xbox Live’s status},” said Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb in his latest podcast.

“I can’t say anything so I apologize, but go talk to the lawyer… That’s all I can say about that,” he adds.

Earlier this month a lawsuit was filed against Microsoft alleging that Xbox Live outages over the Christmas period represented a breach of contract. The suit claims in excess of $5 million in damages.

"In December 2007, Xbox Live crashed and prevented Plaintiffs around the world from accessing online play for several weeks… Microsoft knew the increase in subscriptions would increase game-play on its servers, yet failed to provide adequate access and service to Xbox Live and its subscribers,” it reads.

Last week Xbox group marketing manager Albert Penello acknowledged that server strain caused by unprecedented Xbox Live activity over the Christmas period was at the root of issues plaguing the service, before going on to suggest that the problems had been addressed.

The notion that the problems are a thing of the past has recently been rejected by a number of gamers who will be frustrated by Microsoft’s inability to provide further status updates.
