Has your 360 left a circular scratch on any of your disks? I presume its from the laser...some up to 1/4 of an inch thick on mine!! Happened to about 4 of my disks....My Call of Duty wont even play when I get to a certain mission, it says "Zone Decoytown out of date, Version 1.0 Expecting Version 3.0" or something like that....Just wondering if this has happened to anyone else

i herd from the co-manager (i think thats what hes called) at gamestop that said that some people returned disks with deep deep (there's a word for it but i cant spell it lol sorry) marks in it he said you could literally run your hand over them and feel them. luckily me i havnt had that problem

that usually happens if you set your 360 vertical..

Ya....its happened to about 4 of my games. The only real problem is my COD2 game. Others still work fine, but still. When it happened though, it sounded like saw going through wood...

There isn't a problem with standing your console vertically (mine has been vertical since launch) the problem lies when you move your system from vertical to horizontal and vice versa while a disc is in the tray, doing so can result in scratched discs.

I have a bit of a medical problem with involuntary leg spasms. So sometime in late March or early April I was playing Oblivion and had one and it knocked my 360 down off it's little platform. System was fine, but my Oblivion disk had a real deep circle scratch. Gamestop replaced it the next day, no charge.

circular scratches happen when u move ur 360 when its standing vertical. mine had scrathes for no reason when it was standing vertical so im gatting a new 360.

I didn't tilt mine and it scratched my discs. It was set in horizontal mode. I called tech support and had to send in my 360 to MS and they sent me a new one. They replaced the MGS published games that it scratched (PDZ and PGR3).
