gamerscore > other things to do

It sounds like some people aren’t satisfied with getting a free XBLA game as an apology from MS for the recent problems with Xbox Live and have instead decided to sue according to this article on CNET. As I’ve said on another forum, it’s too early in the year for Darwin Awards. Everyone is affected by this, but is it really worth over $5mil in damages? Is a gamerscore that important? Is there really have nothing better to do than to wait for Live to get better?

Besides, according to the ToS, it looks like Microsoft can basically shrug this off. At the very least, those in the lawsuit might be compensated a month worth of lost time for the cost of…an XBLA game.

Now if only MS can kindly explain how they can continue to maintain their console as a work in progress with all of these revisions…
