Fed up with messy class actions
Xbox 360 owners are unwittingly agreeing never sue Microsoft if it does anything wrong. The new dashboard update comes with a new terms of service agreement but if you have look at the small print it appears that Microsoft slipped in new wording to halt future class-actions.
Users giving up the right to litigate, or participate in as a party or class member, all disputes in court before a judge or jury. Instead, disputes will be resolved before a neutral arbitrator, whose award (decision) will be binding and final, except for a limited right of appear under the Federal Arbitration Act. Xbox users can't walk with their feet as Sony rolled out a similar change to the Terms and Conditions for the PlayStation 3 in September 2011.
