my brother put his copy of sonic the hedgehog in my dvd pile, me bein a spoon put the disk in my laptop.
there where no files on the disk except.....

a 4 second and a 6 second long video of micheal jordon scoring in basketball.....
wtf?!?!? i think to myself
so i tried another one of his games (cant remember what) but the same thing, no files but 2 sports videos.
maybe this is the reason why games are so glitchy

Would depend on/if where you downloaded the games from P2P sites, they will usually have those sad gits doing stuff like this.

Haha, this is no lie, I put in Burnout Revenge and it pops up as a DVD named: "NBA Furious Finishes" with 2 titles: 'Introduction' and 'Michael Jordan' if you click on them to play, you still get the normal 'To play this disc please insert it into an xbox 360 console.'

but still... kinda funny that it comes up with some NBA videos... weird...

EDIT: Other games such as Forza come up as 'Foo Fighters: Everywhere but Home' DVD... and I have no Foo Fighters on my computer to explain that...

Maybe they wanted to entertain you on both the 360 and the PC.

'Hmmm, what do gamers like?"
"How bout 4 second videos of Michael Jordan?"
"Hell yeah!"

You don't get it?

Safeguard against pirating video games.

Michael Jordon once in a while played point guard.

It's a joke left by game devs.

:wtf

The words "Straws", "Clutching" and "at" spring to mind.

That would be more cryptic than the Matrix. Shall we soon see videos of Michael Jordan spraying deodorant, namely Right Gurard?

I think this is one of the little things that is put in a game to help hunt down pirated copies of games and ban people who use them. If you put a game in your disk drive that doesn't have an NBA video, the game is pirated. It's just a theory, I don't know for sure.

That has no proof at all, and it doesn't help that the people who have experienced these events could be lying.

They're multi Layer discs, maybe it was a test video or something from a while back to see how the disks are doing, and all the disks have them or something.

i tried my entire game collection (66 games)
42 of them had micheal jordon on it!!!!
the 24 games that didnt were released after octobor 2008.. (fallout 3, saints row 2, far cry 2, prototype, etc etc)
maybe it was a way of making sure the discs where real and not pirates..

Thats strange.
Lol i've messed up a few times by putting 2 disks into the disk tray at the same time.
For example l4d would already be in there, then i would put another game in not noticing l4d, And then l4d would load and it would be a 5mins of confusing. Until i take the disks out and realise.

maybe it was a way of making sure the discs where real and not pirates.. That is some weird stuff, but kinda cool... I would've never had the idea to put my games into my laptop though.

I wonder why the more recent games didn't have those videos on them...

I'm going to have to try this out with a few of my games.

Wow, that is very strange. I wonder why they have NBA videos on discs. Also, why did they put NBA instead of other random things?

I'll go with the obvious answer to this one: Because porn would cause an uproar? Although I think it would be more popular than the NBA...
