Microsoft confirms consumers restricted from partaking in class-action lawsuits against the company over next-generation platform.
By agreeing to the Xbox One terms of service, consumers will waive their right to launch a class-action lawsuit against the company, Microsoft has confirmed.
"Terms include binding arbitration with class-action waiver to resolve disputes," a new new Xbox One policy requirements document reads.
Microsoft originally updated its Xbox Live terms of service in October 2011 to forbid class-action suits. Today's news is confirmation that the policy will remain in place going forward.
Microsoft is not the only major game maker to forbid class-action lawsuits. Sony's PlayStation terms of service restricts gamers from suing the company en masse, while Valve also blocks class-action suits.
It is unclear if Sony has updated its terms of service with the PlayStation 4 launching this year. A company representative had not responded to a request for comment.
