^^^

when the map was loading (where disc sin really fast) it froze. so i took it out and i seen a crack in the disc coming from the middle and barely grazing the data part of the disc. so i chose to ignore it.

the next day when the map loads it freezes again and the crack got wider and the grazing got longer down the disc.

i was an idiot to not buy insurance on the game(the only one i didnt get insurance for)

you think if i phone up ms they'll replace my graw

take it in to mind that my 360! broke the disc not me so thats my alibi

any help would be greatly appreciated

Ofcourse they will, my friends Perfect Dark Zero got scratched carelessly and ms replaced it and I got it! Tell them your story, but do not however tell them that you moved your 360 position while playing the game!

I've never had a problem getting a disc out of a case. Press down in the center with your thumb and lift from the right edge or the disc.

Theres 2 different retail cases, 1 where all you gotta do is push and the other is wierd, its solid in the middle. I hear where hes comming from but just be gentle and itll come out. Another thing thats wierd is i bought MLB 06 and it was the easy to get out case but it locked up(froze in my 360 like everybody else) so i exchanged it for the same game and it was the other type case.

Yeah, it is sometimes pretty hard to get out of the case. Another reason to want a mod... so we stop cracking our games! biggrin.gif

that is just what i did. i am very careful with my stuff, i'm telling you, its like some of the 360 games are on the center part very tight. i put tomb raider in an old xbox game case because i knew i would be using it alot lately. maby its me blink.gif but i have never had that problem before.

you wont recieve graw back..

you'll get a MS made game...you can always return this game to WalMart though [just don't open it] recieve store credit and put it towards GRAW.

Just an idea I guess..

when did you purchase GRAW, do you still have the reciept ? some stores only offer 14 day returns on games but if you didnt buy it to long ago they should still give you a new one, or take it to wallmart without the reciept and they should give you a new copy of it or store credit if they dont have it in stock
