Cheapness knows No Bounds for HALO 3 Discs

Other than taking over our lives, several gamers, and owners of the new and improved, graphical OMG greatness that is Halo have been reported to arrive D.O.A. That’s right, I said it and I’ll reprint it if you want. Sad thing is, it shows that Microsoft, its Vendors, and/or Distributors [whomever is to blame, or combination of them all] knows no bound in delivering something that’s not always quite functional. Light of the discs being received scratched have of course gotten much fan mail to MS. People before you jump to conclusions though, it would be nice to investigate further don’t you think? Still a lot of the blame has been pointed at big M$.

Ah well, at least its not as bad as Rotting Blue Ray Discs, a phenomenon that has plagued certain Blue Ray Movies earlier this year. At TrueGameHeadz we point out the follies of everyone so dont’ feel bad M$. What happened to the times when a man could buy something and be assured that it would last him a decade or two? Gone are the days of quality.

    To blame is the packaging company that made them. What is going on with these “Special Collector Editions”? They are supposed to be premium but come away feeling CHEAP!

    Gears of War? the discs were fastened to CARDBOARD. WE aren’t paying a whole $10 more for another disc, it’s supposed to be the packaging.

    The tin special edition cases for the Original XBOX were all you needed, i don’t think it’s the same company making these larger ones, because they have the experience to know that the holders are very important during shipping.

    Also, defects in electronic products have existed for ages. Its just now with the onset of the internet and communities has widespread knowledge spread faster. As soon as a defect happens, someone makes a video and throws it on youtube and then a few thousand others say, “ME TOO”

    How great is this? We can all voice our distaste with companies in unison instead of getting lame excuses we used to get when they made it seem like it was only “Our” copy.

    Gasp…I just saw it on the news that it’s alot of disks and so many people are pissed since they stood on line to get it at midnight. Microsoft already took measures by having a special form people can fill to replace it at no cost, but the damage is done since some people paid up to $140 if I’m not mistaken for the special edition.
