Final Fantasy XIII Pisses Folks Off and Allegedly Bricks Their PS3s
A class action lawsuit has been filed in San Francisco by folks who assert that “playing Final Fantasy XIII caused their PS3 consoles to freeze and become permanently inoperable.” Hilariously, the folks who complained to Sony about this say they were told that Square Enix was to blame for the problem, and folks who complained to Square Enix say they were told that Sony was to blame for the problem, and, needless to say, nobody would fix the consoles.
Now I feel like I dodged a bullet. I played FFXIII on PS3 because that was supposedly the superior version, and if that waste of my time ended up destroying my PS3 I would have been, well, more furious than if a game I liked had destroyed it. Sigh of relief.
