Amazing lawsuits filed against Nintendo and Microsoft

Erik Estavillo, the agoraphobic Resistance player who keeps attempting to sue Sony for banning his trolling arse, has now decided to try and get some money from Microsoft and Nintendo as well. His last case against Sony was thrown out of court, but it seems that Estavillo is desperate to leech some cash off at least one game company.

Microsoft is being sued over the Red Ring of Death, which allegedly hit Estavillo's Xbox 360 recently. The greedy whore claims he's disabled and thus can't afford the "well over $100" price required to fix it. He wants $75,000 from Microsoft because the system's breakdown caused him "undue stress" as well as the "sadness he will have in the mean time of finding one he can afford."

The Nintendo suit is even more amazing. NoA is being sued because the latest Wii update disabled his Homebrew Channel. Apparently he was using it to pirate Super Mario Galaxy so that he could unlock a character in Mario Kart Wii. Estavillo wants $5,000 because Nintendo is standing in the way of his "“pursuit of happiness." He also believes Nintendo forces customers to buy games to unlock characters in other games, thus justifying his piracy.

Erik claims to suffer from depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, agoraphobia and Crohn’s disease. None of these disorders seem to provide a clue as to why he's such a lazy, parasitic, little piece of sh*t. Still, you have to give him credit. He's a God among trolls.
