Datel Max Memory Card

Datel, located in UK, filed Monday an antitrust lawsuit again Microsoft for locking out 3rd party memory cards for the popular Xbox 360 gaming console. Microsoft locked the cards out through a firmware update, which stemmed from piracy concerns. Marty Glick, who currently represent Datel in this lawsuite, was quoted:

Microsoft did this for no other reason than to eliminate competition, as Datel’s cards offer higher capacity than Microsoft’s own.

A federal court in San Francisco will rule whether Microsoft has engaged in anti-competitive practice or if they are withing their rights to lock out 3rd party products from the Xbox 360.

After the current Xbox Live banning that occurred a few weeks ago, a Texas Based Law Firm is in the process of organizing a class action lawsuit. On their website, Abington IP has a form for those who were banned to submit their information and story.

From reading the information on the site, it’s not due to being banned from Xbox Live itself, but also what Microsoft did personally to your console.

Additional *reported* problems resulting from the bans include, but are not necessarily limited to:
* Disabling/altering Xbox functionality *NOT* associated with Xbox Live or piracy (HDD functionality for example);
* Disabling/altering Xbox functionality *NOT* associated with piracy (Netflix, game add-ons, music, and arcade games for example);
* Obtaining information from Xbox consoles without permission of the owner;
* Other problems/consequences associated with these bans have been reported here and elsewhere. [Read More]
