    I noticed the other night after my session in Rock Band 2 on my 360 came to a skreetching halt that my disc is cracked around the center. Now the only thing I can figure that may have caused this is pulling the game in and out of the case so much. Outside of Halo 3 it's my highest played game. I bought it brand new, never have lent it out and it always goes back in the case after playing.

    I wonder if MTV Games or whoever would replace the disc? Good thing I can DL the game to my HDD otherwise I wouldn't be able to enjoy RB2 anymore.

    Not games, but I've had CDs crack like that before... never knew if it was related to play time, or a physical flaw in the disc, as I've played others FAR more and not had a problem...

    Hmmm... could be a manufacturing defect or a parcel mistake?

    I once had a cracked DVD (2 episodes kept skipping) and brought it back for a replacement. Other than that, my DVDs and CDs had never got any cracks or flaws in them yet.

    I think my friend burned out two copies of Halo 3 before from playing them so much.

    I had my first Little Big Planet disk bust in the middle. It fit tight in the case and all I can figure is it cracked from the removal. I cried a little bit when that happened.
