Holy crap, I hope nothing like that happens to my games D: Never heard about this happening... Could it be the disc was somehow flawed?

As I suggested, maybe the disc was flawed or something? Like, during the manufacturing. It just waited for the right time to start breaking.

That could be, although I've heard about discs having manufacturing problems earlier. Those have been just CDs, though.

Could you just get it back to the store to get your money back or to trade it for a working one?

I heard rumors of the original Xboxs actually melting discs...Dunno if it's true. Could have had a flaw and then the heat of the system could have expanded the disc in such a way that small cracks appeared. Only thing I can think of. That's why I love Bluray discs. They are tough as all hell.

A few things could have happened
was the game like that when you got that ?
Have you dropped or moved your xbox when it was still on or experienced a grinding strange noise ?
if so it was the laser that done it
Mass is right some games do get flawed during manufacture
I got RE5 at midnight on release, got home and checked the game and the disk had cracks on the surface
This will happen on out of so many thousand, or the game will be slightly flawed and when you push the middle button to get your game out your game slightly bend as normal and sometimes this can awaken the cracks and make them come to the surface
same goes for the when the disk is spinning in the xbox

Anyway there's nothing you can do except buy a new game or if that one still works then just keep using it
You would only get a refund if it was within 7 days of returning and was an actual manufacture fault or evidence that it might have been packed that way , well thats the way they deal with it in Gamestation in the UK its a brilliant UK game shop

No problem I just know all this from experience lol
I suppose thats the life of a xbox gamer Crying or Very sad
Things always breaking or having problems

Yeah I have a ps3 as well and the Blu-ray disks are dual layer you can see the difference whenyou look at a ps3 disk its a little bit chunkier and its tough as hell Shocked
you virtually dont get any scratches on the disk unless you really are trying to scratch them and eevn at that they still dont scratch easy lol
Nite will confirm this as well Smile
I just like the xbox better but because its interfaces are a bit more user friendly and have more handy futures than the ps3 and the ps3 updates take about an hour and a system up date can be very long, it took me like 3 hours to install GT3 and all installs it was a bloody nightmare, thats why I prefer the xbox
Plus also I have both so I aint really a fanboy of any I just play which console I fell like playing and right now its my PC or DC am gaming on lol I love you

I cant remember if you need to install every game on the ps3 but you definitely need to install a update on the games like you do when you get a new game for the xbox only thing is that xbox updates it in the matter of seconds the PS takes about half an hour to a hour in some cases lol

Hhmm might be your usb port
I dont really know about this problem because my old pc used have this problem but it was only my moniter it would turn off and the light would flash and I would need to reboot my Pc I few times to get it to connect to the internet again lol
Might be a overheating problem because laptops do burn up badly also dont have it on your lap have it on a laptop tray thing you can buy or have it on a wood surfaces because I read somewhere that fabric or material like carpet or clothes helps to overheat it because of the threads or something lol either that or if its a old laptop then its just the fact it being old, you know kind of wear and tear issue like my old pc I had was 3 or 4 years old and that started to have issues like your having so I really dont know could be one of these

Most PS3 games have no install. And some have optional installs. They rarely ever have forced installs and when they do, it's for games that the 360 just couldn't handle to begin with, like MGS4. Installing it helps it run smoother which is why some people like the PS3 better. Many games run better on the PS3. I've never ever had an install take more than half an hour. Even a half hour is pushing it. System updates, game updates, downloads, nothing takes that long for me. As for the 360 having more features, that's not the case. Basically, the only thing it has that the PS3 does not is cross game voice chat and background music abilities. Whereas the PS3 has thing that the 360 does not have, like web surfing, the ability to play WAY more files than the 360 can, the ability to display games and movies in true 1080p (the 360 cannot display true 1080p), the PS3 has many more exclusive AAA titles, etc. The interface is just based on preference. I'm used to the PS3 so I can navigate it quickly and easily, though I'm getting better at the 360 interface. To me, the 360 interface just seems cluttered or something. I have been appreciating the 360 more though recently since I've been playing it more with friends while drinking. We basically just play Halo: Reach and it's pretty fun. Better than any CoD title available. That's for sure.

Yeah I get what your saying Smile
I probably just like the xbox better because I had it first and it what a knew best
But as I said I can work the ps3 also I just enjoy the xbox better because of party chat while you play games and the fact that most of my friends have an account with the xbox so we ussualy just sit drinking and play online private matches lol
I prefer halo 3 but reach is pretty good also Smile
I also like the new homefront and medal of honour Tier 1 is a good game because it aint full of kids and fakeness like COD
people dont bitch in the game and it feels more real like the battlefield so I enjoy it Smile
But all in all PC gaming and pc's in general are superior tbh Razz
plus I like how playing RE titles on the pc makes the games run faster and a lot more smooth (the DC does this also )
because being a UK resident we get PAL format and anybody under PAL region knows that RE were really slow and and harder than other countries versions, Normal mode in PAL is like hard mode in any other format and so on.
