A Chicago man who bought Microsoft's new Xbox 360 has sued the world's largest software maker, saying the new video game console has a design flaw that causes it to overheat and freeze up, Reuters news service reported yesterday. Robert Byers, who brought the suit, said the power supply and central processing unit in the Xbox 360 overheat, affecting heat-sensitive chips and causing the console to lock up, it said.

Suing over what damages? The product comes with a warranty which will be honored so this seems to be about as frivilous a lawsuit as there could possibly be. Manfacturers are not required to produce products with 100% relability, and consumers that bite on launch day should have the sense to expect some launch day issues. But the bottom line is that the "damages" are totally mooted by the exsistence of a warranty. Good luck.
