Xbox One Requires Waiver of Class Action in Terms of Use

Also known as, “Microsoft needs you to agree to shut up and like it.”

A disclaimer revealed with pre-orders for Microsoft’s Xbox One makes a couple of things clear about what you do and don’t get when you receive the console. And one of those is the ability to sue Microsoft if you’re not satisfied with the services.

The disclaimer states that, “You must accept Xbox Terms of Use (including Xbox software terms and game license terms), Microsoft Services Agreement, and Xbox One 1-year limited warranty. Some games have additional license terms. Terms include binding arbitration with class action waiver to resolve disputes.”

So if the Xbox Live servers go out, thus making it unable for you to play games, or if the servers are hacked and your information is stolen, you can’t complain about it. If this isn’t Microsoft asking you to accept the unacceptable and like it, we don’t know what is.

The disclaimer also details several other requirements: You will need a 720p or higher HDMI compatible TV to be able to play the Xbox One. Oddly enough, Microsoft forgot to include HDMI cable for the console’s package at launch. You also need at least 4 feet and 7 inches of space for Kinect to function properly, 6 feet in case of multiplayer games.

Finally, as the Xbox One will only be available in 21 countries on release, so will Xbox Live. It will also be region-locked. And none of your Xbox 360 accessories will work with the Xbox One.

But next generation Halo, right guys?
