Microsoft, Bungie Get Sued Over Halo 3, Again

Randy Nunez of California two years ago sued Microsoft and Bungie over Halo 3 because the first person shooter game supposedly repeatedly froze and locked up his Xbox 360 console.

Apparently the first suit filed didn't get the results that Nunez wanted, pushing him to file the suit again. TG Daily found a new filing with similar claims, which reads: "Defendants knew or had reason to know that Halo 3 was being purchased by consumers for use on an Xbox 360 and that the buyers of Halo 3 were relying on Defendants' skill and judgment to furnish goods suitable for that purpose.... However, Halo 3 does not function with the Xbox 360, and to the contrary, attempted use of Halo 3 consistently causes the Xbox 360 to 'crash,' 'freeze' or 'lock up' while the game is being played."

Given that the first filing didn't get off the ground, we have doubts as to the effectiveness of this second attempt.
