  • Halo 3: ODST disc error "not widespread"

  • Shafto 28/09/2009


    I was as equally baffled at the time!

    There's a few people complaining about BF1943 disc read errors if you do a google search. This was at the same time as LEGO Indy gave me trouble (I've never found anyone complaining about this), and it's all been downhill since then. Halo 3 became unplayable, lots of other games started freezing, games installed to HD crash/DRE immediately.

    And all the while, L4D chugs on like an unbreakable champ. It's completely unaffected.

    Mine's chanked - displaying exactly the errors detailed in the report.

    Halo 3 was doing it before ODST came out though - it's not a byproduct of ODST fucking the system up. The system is fucked to begin with, ODST just happens to highlight the symptoms more than most.

    Halo 3, Lego Indiana Jones, and even the XBLA version of Battlefield 1943 gave me the same errors.

    MS refuse to accept there's a problem, and insist I pay their absurd fixer fees, because my system has not RROD.

    One day a decent games journalist will actually expose the shoddiness of the whole setup. Until then, EG and many others will continue to take cheap hits from others problems, while doing absolutely nothing to help.

  • MS clamping down on early ODST sales

  • Shafto 28/08/2009

    You can't take action against BUYERS!

    If I walked into a shop selling ODST today, i'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    From a naive consumer's point of view, why would they even know the release date?!

  • Halo 3 Mythic Map Pack out on 9th April

  • Shafto 23/03/2009

    It's got to be the Marketplace release of Mythic Map Pack. They teased they'd reveal the date in the previous update, and they did. I'd be shocked if it were anything other than this. Reply 0
  • All Halo music for one soundtrack

    Word on the street, is this is missing Halo 2, Vol. 1, for some absolutely mystifying reason. Reply 0
