MS Replacing Damaged Halo 3 Discs

Following widespread reports of scratched Halo 3 Limited Edition discs, Microsoft will be replacing any and all discs damaged as a result of the tin's faulty disc nub.

The company usually charges $20 to replace the game disc of a Microsoft-published title, which are typically not damaged in the shipping process. Due to the numerous issues stemming from the Limited Edition's lackluster disc protection scheme, Microsoft has waived that fee for those seeking pristine copies of Halo 3's Limited Edition.

Owners of Halo 3 Limited Edition have until December 31, 2007 to swap their damaged discs without cost.

The only downside of the exchange program is that gamers must first part with their game discs and ship them to Microsoft before a replacement can be issued, introducing yet another wait for the highly anticipated conclusion of Bungie's Halo trilogy. For more details, including the requisite exchange form, check out Microsoft's official disc replacement site.
