shake my head Was playing Borderlands for about 20 minutes. All of a sudden, the game freezes, and the 360 starts making noises like an engine stalling. I take the game out, and there's a perfect 360 degree circle (see what I did there?) on the bottom. Now the damn thing won't work anymore. I consulted Microsoft's fault policy, and they only replace games published by, you guessed it, Microsoft. This is the second time this has happened, the first time being with NBA2k9. So basically, i'm butt-fucked out of $60, not to mention an excellent game. Playstation 3's starting to look really tempting... Mad

If you buy games at Toys R Us, they sell a cheap protection policy (like $3/game) to protect against things like that. I used to suggest it and tell people that, come 1 year down the road, you can cash in the policy and get a $60 check coming your way (if you don't still play the game, that is)

If you have a Game Crazy in your area they have a machine that grinds/buffs game disks and will take care of a lot of scratches, might help.

Just called and explained the situation to 2k Games support, and apparently they replace damaged disc for free. Props to 2k Games. They're a good company, and i'll continue to buy their products.

Microsoft on the other hand, needs a kick in the ass. You can't be kind of responsible for a technical problem. Either you are, or you aren't. It's clear that their disc drive(among other things) is jacked up, yet they only accept partial responsibility by replacing games published in house. How people let them get away with this is beyond me.

This is why I feel no guilt is having a modded 360 that plays game backups. If you do what is "correct" and proper, you are screwed out of your money because companies will not stand behind their equipment.

Sad but true, it can happen to you.

Why don't you spend $20 and buy an intercooler for your 360? I bought one two years ago and have never gotten the RRD.
