Yeah, so recently, the kick pedal on my drums set broke. Yes, I was and still am real pissed off, but guess who's coming to the rescue? The system of lawsuits!!! Yes, Harmonix has been sued, and it's over the controversial problem with the kick pedal. According to the plaintiff, Harmonix is in violation of the implied warranty that all items of Rock Band were of "merchantable quality and fit for the purpose for which defendants marketed, advertised, and sold such products to plaintiff and the proposed class." In other words, they are upset because if the kick pedal does break, they don't replace it and you can't play it the way it was advertised. The suit also mentions that Harmonix and MTV Games were aware of this problem, but continued to sell the game as it was. It also notes the change on the Rock Band 2 drum set to a metal kick petal, yet the original version remains to be plastic.
The plaintiff Morgan and those he is representing are seeking reimbursement for the cost of the Rock Band kit, for MTV Games and Harmonix to stop selling the defective item, and any other damages deemed by the court.
If you want to know why I support this, it's because my kick pedal has broken, and they have refused to fix it since the warranty has passed. Even though I plan to buy Rock Band 2, I am upset because I couldn't play it because the kick pedal broke and I couldn't replace it. So yes, I, of course, do want this reimbursement.
