Microsoft Offers Replacements for Scratched Halo 3 Discs
Many people were upset yesterday and in the wee hours of this morning when they popped open their Limited Edition copies of Halo 3 to find the discs all scratched up. A design flaw in the plastic nub holding the discs made it easy for them to become loose during shipping and rattle around in the tin box. The scratches usually don’t make the game unplayable, but it is still an annoyance when you’re paying for a brand new product. Luckily, Microsoft has admitted that there is a problem and is offering to replace the scratched discs at no charge through their website. You just have to fill out a form, mail in your scratched discs, and in at least two weeks you should have a new copy. The offer is good until the end of the year. Not such a bad idea if you don’t mind being Halo-less for awhile.
