    Just got back home from the airport, just about to boot up FoC to play with some Dinobots (After a generous deposit of Microsoft Points thanks to Xbox Rewards) as well as rake in a cool x2 Experience this weekend and then I notice it taking a long time to boot up... Only for it to fail.

    I take the disc out from the tray only to see THIS looking back at me.

    Well, that's £61 down the drain!
    Absolutely Fan-Fuckin'-Tastic.

    Wow Im really sorry about that :( 

    You didnt clear this up in your original post, but did your game look like that once you opened it from the packaging?

    Or did you leave it in your Xbox while you we're at the airport?
    I have tried something similar myself.
    If the 360 is bumped even slightly, when you're playing a from the disk, there's a risk that the disk might get caught on something inside the machine, which will most likely shred it beyond repair.

    Did anyone use your Xbox 360 while you were gone? Just curious.
    It really sucks for you man :(

    Thanks guys :c

    Nope, it was at home sitting in it's case until I popped it into the disc drive when I got home and then it failed to load up and when I took it out it had that chip in the disc and now it refuses to load entirely.
    I've given the xbox a little rattle and I can't say I hear anything distinct in something shaking inside it but it's hard to tell.

    I'm gonna try and get a replacement but I have a feeling the store is just going to blame my Xbox (When it's a slim model which doesn't have the hard drive issue like the older models) and refuse to give me one.
    But I guess the other option is to try and find a friend who has it or rent it so I can write it to my hard drive and hope that regardless of the chip it will read enough of the disk so it can do the rest of the HD.

    Now that is bizarre, I've had discs crack and break from the INSIDE of the ring but never one the outside... Did you locate the missing chip? Was it in the case, if not try picking up your xbox and see if you can hear it inside.

    Either way, that's awful. Do you have anyone else in the home that could have messed with it while you were away?

    Yeah, I've given it a gentle shake and I cant hear anything shaking inside.
    And my door was locked and I don't really live with anyone who would do such a hurtful, dark, cruel, sinister, evil, vile, disgusting, loathsome, heinous, despicable thing to me... at least I hope not.

    Have you checked for stress marks/cracks on the disk?

    I've gotten a few new games with cracks in them. It's bullshit. I don't like it. Take it back, if you can.

    "There's the Disc, but the Insecticons have chewed it up!"

    Seriously though, you have my sympathies.

    I have an old PC game that still plays even with an identical break.
