Halo 3 collector's discs coming to you pre-scratched

Halo 3 collector's discs coming to you pre-scratched photo



Excited for picking up your copy of Halo 3 at launch? Spent the extra money for the collector's tin, 'cause you wanted the hard copy of the artbook? Well, the folks at NeoGAF have some bad news for you: by the time you get it open, the discs look like they'll already be scratched. Perhaps you won't even need your 360 to put a giant dent in the disc for you.

A lot of people are experiencing problems with the way the Halo 3 discs are held in the case of the collector's edition. As you can see, the disc is held in by nothing more than a tiny piece of plastic and some foam pads. If you watch Gamevideo's unboxing video, they have similar problems.

If you check out the photos below, you can see the damage done. According to some of the GAF commenters, it looks even worse in person than what the photos show. Some of the people are saying that the discs have been rendered unplayable by the damage done.

This is clearly going to be a problem, and it'll be levied right at Microsoft, who's still under the spotlight from their billion dollar write-off. What are the boys in green to do? Give Microsoft a call if your disc is all scratched up and let us know of the results. 

[Thanks to iRaf for the tip, and the GAF community for the pics]

It took almost four years to build this amazing Pillar of Autumn from Halo with Legos

I was recently given a tiny Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Lego set. 47 pieces. I put it together in no time. Michelangelo with a little cart thing. It was simple, but I loved it. You know; that feeling you get when y...more

Maybe don't spend $250 pre-ordering Halo 5: Guardians, okay?

There's a certain allure behind mystery boxes. What's in them? It could be anything. It could even be a boat; you know how much we've always wanted one of those. Well, Microsoft's offering a mystery box of its own today for p...more
