Final Fantasy XIII: Sony & Square Enix In PS3 Bricking Lawsuit

In a strange, but interesting story it seems that the FFXIII developers and contributors from Sony and Square Enix are being sued by an obnoxious gamer for causing ‘severe and widespread damage’ to PS3 consoles since the games release on March 9, 2010.

The original report that comes from IGN says that a lawsuit was filed on June 2, 2010 by Daniel Wolf who comes from San Diego, Calif, and says that the game has caused “PS3 consoles to freeze and become totally and permanently inoperable.”

Wolf says that after he purchased the game on release day, his PS3 became unresponsive and refused to play any media after an attempt to save his game failed.

The suit also mentions that Sony and Square Enix have been blaming each other for the issues in the game, but neither are willing to cover the cost of the repair bills, nor are they willing to comment on the situation.

Has FFXIII caused you any such problems?
