Microsoft Owns Up To Halo 3 Disc Scratching
Microsoft confirmed blog reports Wednesday that the special limited edition packaging on some Halo 3 games was scratching the disc and has offered to replace them at no charge. The reports first surfaced within hours of the game's release, and quickly spread through other gaming forums. In order to quell any discontent, Microsoft has decided to waive the $20 USD fee through its Disc Replacement Program the game through December 31.
Only one replacement per gamer will be honored, and the original disc must be sent into Microsoft. The disc will be shipped out within two weeks. The Redmond company said this only affected a "small fraction" of the total number of games shipped and apologized for any inconvenience it may have caused.
