Returning a scratched disk to Bestbuy

If you know anyone who has a copy if the game borrow their copy for a few minutes to install the game on the hard drive. After its installed you should be OK. I had the same problem with last years NCAA football. I rented the game from blockbuster installed it to my hard drive and then was still able to play using my scratched game. Never had another problem with it.

Well when I worked at Wal-Mart it wasn't much of a choice besides fulfilling customers satisfaction. I mean will you feel good about doing it? I don't know if you're an honest person you probably will feel like **** but if not then I guess you won't mind each way. You could also just ask your roommate to buy you a new copy or go have it resurfaced for 10 bucks but if it's still working you can install it to your HD and just play it off that way which I should've just suggested last night.

Roommate owes you a copy. Not best buy.

Take it back, immediately tell them that the disk is scratched and that it does not load correctly (before they check it). Insist it came that way, you'll get a new copy. Ask to see a manager if the associates gives you any trouble.

This is so obvious to fix as long as you have the original receipt...


Step1: buy new copy, get scratch protection

Step2: return old copy with scratch protect receipt to get another new copy.

Step3: return one of your two new copies with the original purchase receipt.


You're out the scratch protection cost, but not out the cost of the full game. Make the roommate deal with the whole situation imo, at least financially.

This guy gave the best answer, I had the same problem and installing the game is the best solution.

to update this the guy at best buy was actually really cool and exchanged it. Didnt even ask me until afterwards if I knocked over my xbox which I ended up telling him I did. He then let me know that a disc did the same thing to him and he knows what its like to get a game 2-3 days after it came out and your xbox chewing it up.
