The Supreme Court will rule on whether or not Microsoft will face a class action lawsuit from unsatisfied Xbox 360 owners who claim that a known defect in the system resulted in scratched discs whenever they tilted the system while it was in use.

The U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled for litigation on the case to continue last July, which could have potentially led to money in the pockets of anyone who suffer from a disc scratch resulting from tilting their system, but Microsoft has since appealed the decision to the Supreme Court.

The nation’s highest court agreed to hear Microsoft’s argument, which claims that only 0.4 percent of the 80 million Xbox 360 owners were affected by the scratching and that damage incurred by tilting the system is not a product defect but rather an example of consumer misuse.
