Recent Lawsuit Filed Against Square Enix and Sony

The lawsuit, filed on June 2, 2010 by Daniel Wolf of San Diego, Calif., alleges Final Fantasy XIII has caused “severe and widespread damage” to Sony’s PS3 gaming systems since its release on March 9, 2010. The lawsuit states that, for many consumers, playing Final Fantasy XIII has “caused their PS3 consoles to freeze and become totally and permanently inoperable.” Wolf said he purchased a copy of Final Fantasy XIII the day it was released, and when attempting to save his game, his PS3 became unresponsive and would no longer play any other media after restarting it.


“Both Defendants are eminently aware of the damage being cause by their defective products, and have chosen to do nothing about it,” the lawsuit says.


The suit also alleges that both Sony and Square Enix blamed the issue on each other. Square Enix said the issue resulted from Sony’s console, and Sony blamed the issue on a faulty Final Fantasy XIII game disc. Neither company allegedly offered to cover the cost of repairing PS3 consoles.


The class seeks more than $5 million in damages and other financial relief.


Square Enix has not responded to requests for comment at this time. Sony told IGN it does not comment on legal matters.
