Microsoft joins list of companies opting consumers out of suing them

Stop Suing the Game Companies Because They Said So | GamePolitics.

Microsoft joins the list of companies that puts into its terms of service that you cannot join class action suits against them. In this special case, if you go through the measures necessary to opt out of waiving your right to sue, you cannot use Xbox Live. That’s pretty horrible.

This really shouldn’t have become a thing to do. It’s clear why companies would want to cover their asses with such legalese, especially since the Sony Network and Xbox Live have histories of going down and hacks. However, how is this legal? This is a ridiculous legal precedent that I’m surprised hasn’t yet been fought.
