The Microsoft suit references the plaintiffs XBOX 360 that suffered the dreaded Red Ring of Death, claiming he can’t afford the $100 fee Microsoft is charging him to fix it. Quoted directly from the suit documenation, the idiot claims the XBOX 360 is “only one of two ways in which he relies on to socialize,” as he suffers from depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and Crohn’s disease.  He’s asking for $75,000 from Microsoft due to “the stress put on the plaintiff having to find a way to acquire a new Xbox 360 system and the sadness he will have in the meantime of finding one he can afford.”

First, let’s start with the fact that there was actually a lawyer out there that took this case.  Why?  Sure, it’s money….but seriously….these types of lawsuits should not even be brought to court.  It’s a waste of everyone’s time.  I’m of the belief that these lawyers that cater to these bufoons should be punished in some way.  A fine, something.  But that’s our legal system.  Anyone can sue anyone and waste tax dollars.  Swell.

Now I love my video games as much as the next gamer, my wife can attest to that….or complain about it.  But come on.  Sack up, jackass.  Your hapiness is denied because you can’t use a character skin on Mario Kart!?  You are teh stupid.  I’m not sure if I should be laughing at this guy or feeling pity for him.  If the Wii and the 360 are the only ways he socializes, well, that’s the biggest problem right there.  Try getting out in the sunshine, kiddo.  An actual woman is much more fun than a vibrating XBOX controller…..most of the time.  There are millions of other things to do besides playing video games.  Even worse, instead of suing Microsoft for something legitimate….like faulty hardware….it’s just over the $100 repair cost.  Which is puzzling, considering there’s no doubt he’s paying more than $100 to his lawyer for both of these rediculous claims.  How about taking that money and buying a new XBOX and a copy of Mario Galaxy?  Problem solved!  Hapiness Restored!  +1 Extra Life!

Of course this comes back to the problem with American society today.  Everyone feels they are entitled to whatever they want.  Spoiled little brats, coddled by everyone since the day they were born.  If I was his parents I’d be taking both systems away and kicking his ass out into the sunshine at least for a little while.
