It seems many players won't be finishing the fight. Following Halo 3's US release, several gamers are reporting discs which simply do not work beyond a certain point. Although "heavy scratching" is being blamed in many cases, sometimes there is no notable damage or reason for the games failure. Microsoft is so far unavailable for comment.
Some US customers queuing up to splash out hard-earned dollarbucks on Halo 3 have returned home to find their discs unreadable.
The main offender seems to be the Limited Edition of the game, which comes in a metallic casing without a knobbly protrusion to hold the DVD in place. Because of this, disgruntled fans are reporting heavy scratching on their copies.
