Scratched Up Halo 3 LE Discs: It's All True!

by Jon Davis 5. October 2007 00:14

I pre-ordered Halo 3 Limited Edition several months ago from Amazon.com. Not long ago (a week and a half ago?) it was Halo 3 Night, someone instant messaged me asking me if I was going to stay up all night for it. "Nope, I pre-ordered." "Aww, that sucks.."

Anyway, a day or two later I monitored the Amazon.com reviews and noticed that what I had ordered was getting consistently very bad ratings. As it turned out, half of the reviewers were commenting that the discs were falling off the plastic spindle inside the case and getting scratched up, in some cases unusable.

Yesterday I finally got my Halo 3. It took so rediculously long to get shipped, I was hoping that Amazon rejected their inventory and got replacements, but that was unrealistic as the game did ship, and it arrived. And sure enough, I jiggled the box and heard discs sliding around in there. I opened it up and looked, and it was scratched to hell.

I'm glad that Microsoft did at least provide us with an online form that we can print out to send the discs in for replacement. Both of the discs went out today. But I don't like to have to wait for the game to show up after the game already showed up, late.

But it's not like I could have played it. My TV died and I'm waiting for that to be repaired... along with my bathroom shower plumbing which is leaking water all over the condo downstairs... *sigh*
