Not My Gears Of War
No No No I Just Started Playing

My Xbox 360 Scratched My Disc, Where Do I Go To Get It Replaced Without Having To Pay As Much Money I Did To Get The Game, Because It's Microsoft's Fault. Wikipedia Even Stated That There Had Been Problems With Xboxes Scratching People's Discs.


I can't stand this, someone needs to kick Bill Gates in the mother****ing balls.

I think you moved your xbox 360 while the disc was spining I feel for you I don't think their's anything you can do to get your disc repaired I'm sorry mate. Just go out and buy a 2nd hand copy of gears or wait until gears of war 2 comes out not long now.

Nah, it'll be kinda stupid just waiting til Gears of War 2 comes out (I thought it came out in November) because I'd like to play Gears of 1 first..

disc replacement program, for $20 they will replace your cd, ONLY if its made by microsoft, in your case, it was. Also, I read before that if your 360 damages it, you can send xbox.com's support team a support ticket. You can do that here http://support.microsoft.com/kb/909819/en-us

I went to that site.. but I'm going to try a local store and see if they fix it.

Note: Don't try Gamestop, I tried. They apparently don't repair discs.

um , no RROD is caused by a cooling problem within the 360 hardware componants. It's caused by too much heat on the mother board which causes it's X prongs to bend it which causes RROD. So just adding some chip isn't gonna fix it.

I personally love RROD cause i have fixed so many 360s permanitly for 40$ a piece. All i do is rip off the prongs and replace them with a small computer heat sync. Costs me like 10 $ tops, not too difficult either but of course it does require breaking the seal. Eventually microsoft will create a solution but where ever you ehard that chip is full of BS.

well there are ways to fix the RRod for example sometimes it's just a loose connection somewhere and once one of my friends just put wet blankets round the 360 and it worked perfectly or just get an intercooler which is under warranty by microsoft.

if ur 360 is like mine that it just needs to cool off then let it cool off for 10-20 mins. then on it again then if the RROD IS GONE leave it and wait till the next day to on it. But if it isnt then either send it to microsoft or make it overheat by turning it on then putting blanks wrapping it up every single hole of it for like 5-1o mins then turn it off. then let it cool off for 5 mins then on it and it should be gone! it will be safe for atleast 1 week but what u should really do is send it to microsoft! :thumbs :thumbs :D

PS. my 360 got RROD twice and it still works at tip top shape!

I knocked my xbox over while i was playing crackdown. Only to find a massive scratch around the edge of it.


By the looks of it, the game was unusable, but when i put it back in... It worked, but very weirdly... Everything fell through the floor into water under the map (apart from buildings)

People, cars, lamposts, everything... One thing that was good about it though, i was about to go and get a lot of hidden packages easily.



And yeah, the sound of it scratching up is hideous.

That must suck...I'd be mad at my friend then. But if your 360 ever swithces positions from horizontal to veriticle and vise versa then it will completely mess up your game
