Square Enix And Sony Being Sued For Bricked PS3 Consoles

Square Enix and Sony are reportedly being sued for copies of Final Fantasy XIII that bricked certain PS3 consoles. IGN reports:

“The lawsuit, filed on June 2, 2010 by Daniel Wolf of San Diego, Calif., alleges Final Fantasy XIII has caused ’severe and widespread damage’ to Sony PS3 gaming systems since its release on March 9, 2010.”

Furthermore, the lawsuit claims the game has caused “PS3 consoles to freeze and become totally and permanently inoperable.”

Wolf said he purchased FFXIII on release day, and his console became unresponsive and stopped playing any media after he tried to save his game.

“Both Defendants are eminently aware of the damage being cause by their defective products, and have chosen to do nothing about it,” the lawsuit says.
