Scratched Discs Found in Halo 3 Limited Edition
A poster over at the NeoGaf forums is reporting that the tin box for the Limited Edition of Halo 3 seems to be scratching up a lot of game discs. Apparently, a design flaw with the plastic button holding the disc in place can cause it to become loose during shipping, so that both discs rattle around in the case, scratching them up completely. This doesn’t seem to make the game unplayable, but for $75, you’re probably going to want a copy that’s in perfect condition. The poster claims that someone opened three copies and found them all in the same condition. A writer over at Wired’s Game Blog has reported the same for their own copy, so this probably won’t be the last we hear of this. Word to the wise: if you’re getting the limited edition of the game at midnight tonight, be sure to open that package up before you leave the store. Hope Microsoft shipped enough copies to cover replacements. Few things are more annoying than spending money on broken goods.
