Replacement Halo 3 Discs Are Here
Posted by XanTium | October 18 11:09 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From kotaku.co:


Show of hands who had their Halo 3 bonus disc all scratched up by the crummy tin box. One, two, three...OK, thousands of you.
The replacement discs have started turning up at homes, and while the new soft, beige packaging might not be as easy on the eye as a dark metal tin, it has done a better job of delivering functioning game discs to your 360 console.

Mine is all scratched up... I'd send it in, but... I don't want to wait two weeks without halo 3. As long as it plays. I'm definitely sending it in before they stop doing this though. Just not now. Over and out.

Now let's see how long before the Xbox 360 decides to scratch it up. (Madden is cracked and all my other games got scratches right after I played them first. Also I keep my xbox horizontal at all times.)

UK people won't be getting anything, glad my disk is ok, I ordered Forza 2 2 weeks and 1 day ago, not here because of Royal Mail postal strike that lasted 8 days..

You don't have to worry about putting it back into your LE case, since I'm sure that you're not going to put it through the same punishment as truck drivers, tow motors, and doc monkeys do when handling cases and pallets.

Hmmm,

Does anyone else see a 1 month xbox live card? did that come with the replacement game?

I'm currently waiting for my 360 to come back from microsoft for repairs, for the second time. I'm still kind of pissed that i paid full price for one with a HDD, and didnt get anything for my frustration for having a messed up 360, while those who go the basic package got a free HDD.

I still cant belive this, everyone knows, m$ first product out always is junk wether its a game, consoul software hardware, always is junk. M$ is always first one out of the gates and see what happens. But hey, halo 3 must be worth it eh!
i have never bought a first out from m$ ,,,,my 360 i dont know if its one of those arfter thoughts, but it hasnt crashed yet.

i wanted a system pretty bad when they came out but everyone knew what was happening lol. remember the retard who payed over $5000.00 on ebay. I bet hes kicking himself in the arse lol.
