MS sues DHL after train breaks 360s

Red rails of death.

Microsoft is suing DHL for allegedly breaking 21,600 Xbox 360s in a train derailment in Texas. That's right, Microsoft is suing someone else for breaking Xbox 360s.

According to an IDG News Service report, the consoles were on their way to Flextronics in Hong Kong.

And according to court documents posted by a Seattle newspaper, when the train went off the tracks a bit the poor old consoles suffered "impact damage, wetting, pilfering and shortage". Sniff.

Microsoft said DHL had refused to compensate it for the loss, which it values at USD 2 million. DHL apparently hasn't said anything.
