Sale of Goods Act = (basically) if the product is sold to you in a broken state (even when outside the warranty) it should be replaced.
Well we all know there are no 'working' 360 Dpads - so surely all are a potential legal minefield under this UK law.
E.G: 1 year & 1 month, outside of my warranty, my 360 breaks & I claim that Ive just noticed my xbox pad is faulty (when trying it out on my replacement system/my mates one etc...). Its always been faulty (as can be proven by buying a new pad). As the pad was part of the original bundle; the original bundle was faulty at purchase: therefore do I not have the ability to demand a refund? - Given that this act covers me for 6 years from buying faulty goods?
Just a thought.... - Ive asked Nelson on xbox.com too.... Ill post if he replies
