PisstakePhone them up and tell em before you f*ck over any other games (or you can try a sh*t game you never play just to make sure that it has got a prob)In future never put your 360 vertically.

You can't get those dutty ring scratches out more time
yeahthe one on MW2 is more like a small set of dotsbut the are in the path of a circlethe other disk has 2 heavy ringsso im gonna get game to repair mw2 then install to hdd (wish i had done that already).if it doesnt install, im borrowing a friends copy to install it, then use my dodgy one for verification when i want to run the game - as some of the disk works - the game loads fine then stalls, or when i try and install it it stops at 20%fingers crossed

If it is a circle scratched into the disc, then you should be able to get a new xbox for free. There was an issue with some models that scratched a circle into the discs when they were put in, people complained, so they allow anybody with this issue to get a new xbox. It was even on Watchdog.
