Help! Xbox 360 has ruined my Halo Wars!!

Was brought on Friday, Disk Unreadable last night.

The CD hadn't left the Xbox 360, until yesterday where it has a nice burnt out ring along the edge.

My 360 is JUST out of 6 month warrenty with Blockbuster, is a brand new 20 GB version.

What should i do with the Console / Game?

Since when are warranties only 6 months?
I'm sure Microsoft will have atleast a 12 month one that you are entitled to.

I am sure I read on here the other day that under EU law all purchases must come with 2 year warranty.

yeh it's a brand new console from back in november

also i was told that I had a 6 month warrenty from blockbuster on here.

also does that mean my game is now rubbish, and should just be used as a coaster?

I'd give MS a call Jay, 0800 587 1102.

So he did. Take the console back.:thumbsup:

if you only bought it 6 months ago phone xbox or go to xbox.com gp to register console,fill out the info, then go to arrange repair , they will send a courier to and from you and free repair

(i'm at work but the screen's facing away)

what are MS going to do about a scratched disc, you/someone must have knocked your console, while the disc was spinning

i remember when my mate got pes 08, brand new. he hadnt played it yet and had waited all day. i (stupidly) picked the xbox up to move it and heard this grinding noise, and i did it again to see if it was the machine. took the disc out and there was a perfect circle round the underside of the disc. instead of giving him £30 i took it back to game with the receipt and the guy gave me a new one, i said it had come like that...

moral of the story, take it back.

Right well blockbuster....useless....sending it back to Microsoft tomorrow by courier, as for the game, they want to charge me a tenner, by Credit Card, details written on paper, and sent in the post. sod that, that's asking to be stolen.... 1. Don't have a Credit Card anyway....and 2. No security over that...

I brought the game from Game on Friday, 5 days ago, think they'll do anything??...
