Xbox 360 ruining your computergames ?

According to the Dutch consumers organisation Kassa there appears to be a problem with the Xbox 360, the console seems to scratch the discs of the games that get inserted. The organisation claims to have received over 200 complaints from Dutch Xbox 360 users. According to Microsoft the users are to blame.

The scratches would have apeared whilst the users were using the game. Microsoft says that these cannot just appear like that adding that the games got damaged because the Xbox 360 had been moved during the gaming session. Clients who got a replacement console were actually given a repared Xbox 360 and not a new set. The damaged games remain unreplaced.

I bet still consumers that have turned their console!

I have had two T/S drives, neither of them scratched my discs. If it's a problem with the T/S drive, EVERYONE should have had it.

Syko3828d ago

Yeah this sounds like people that still have the console sitting vertically, Ever since my second PS2 I have never put a console standing up. It just seems to lead to trouble.

xboxlj3827d ago

I have had mine sitting vertically since I got it during the launch. Yet I have not had one single disk scratched. I think the problem is moving the console while it is running.

PS360PCROCKS3828d ago

Yeah I wanted to set my 360 up but I never did because I don't like the fact the disc can definetly move because of it being on its side and it's really easy to knock over

kring3828d ago

Why should MS (or anyone) be responsible for consumer stupidity. Turning your 360 while the CD is running is going to damage the CD and possibly the drive. it's the same for all drives except laptop drives which have the retainers... but I bet it's more then turning the unit, I bet they knocked it over while it was running.

dantesparda3828d ago

That's not true, you can turn just about any other system before this without ever getting this problem. This is unique mainly to the 360

uxo223827d ago

why the heck would anyone turn, move, and anything else to their system while it's running anyway. I haven't had 1 single disk scratched by my 360. Nor have I heard of any of my boys' 360s scratching their disk either.

dantesparda3826d ago (Edited 3826d ago )

oh please kid, there are times when you have to do it, and if you dont think so, then you're just an idiot. And the fact that it does this, is the problem! not people pointing it out, you clown, now get off the 360 nuts and realize the reality kid!

And if your sure of your 360 then move it while its on, come on, i dare you! you or your "boys"

"the users are to blame.",
I am glad to see the top 4 morons on this site defending this.

you guys mart, syko, rocks,and kring just lost any creditabily ever.

what a buncnh of F'ing fanboys.

good luck d!psh!ts

EDIT: my buddy had the same problem last years until he got a new one and then he must have suddenly learned to use it better. you fLckling morons

EDIT 2: "The damage seems to be reported worldwide. A recherche executed by the dutch magazine Hardware.info reveals now that the lens (a TSST, Toshiba Samsung) of a suspect Xbox drive showed signs of usage, something rather unusual. Still according to Hardware.info the damage to the games would be caused due to the absense of small rubber bumpers around the laser-lens. Microsoft did not want to react to Kassa."
NOW WHAT ARE MORONS SAYING...MAKE SURE GATES KOCK DOESN'T COME OUT OF YOU MOUTHS.

PS360PCROCKS3828d ago

WHO ARE YOU? Your immature and unintelligent post shows your lack of any reasoning in your head. So on that note I won't even waste my time on replying to your post. But I will say that we are all entitled to our own opinions. If you would like to talk about creditability, look at the left side of the screen "27830 all-time points" you have 290 and already have four bubbles. Your creditability is shot down and gone out the window, don't attack people when no one even knows you exist.

HuntingYou3828d ago

because of F A G G O T S like you. 27000 blah blah posts don't mean sh!t.
Your are blamming a fan for a worlwide problem....you loser fanboy...go ahead take another F'ing bubble you [email protected]

its losers like you who will blindly follow anything as long as they keep blowing a load in your face.

As long as none of this sh!t happenes to you and your 360 is perfect, eveything is perfect. As long as hitler does't come after you its all good. F the jews...right?

I hope your 360 fuxs up, and another one and you get to see the nature of the beast.

unintelligent? I don't think all you fanboys combined have a single working brain cell, if thoses are your responses to that story. what a bunch of F'ing d!psh!ts.

27000 posts...you work for MS you F'ing XBOT

TheMART3828d ago

Dude

I just told you I have had 2 x a 360 with a T/S drive. They both don't scratch.

If the logic is because the rubber bumpers are missing (the thing you are right on, but only are really nescessary if the console is moved while spinning), then it should support my theory

Then ALL T/S (Toshiba/Samsung) drives should scratch. So why haven't mine been scratching then? None, never? And others I know with T/S drives that take care of their console? Never?

I am just curious for you answer I guess. Maybe crying consumers that have turned it with a spinning drive and then saying: "We never did it lets try to get a new one from MS?"

I don't know, these are just my experiences. And I know a LOT of people with a T/S drives

PS360PCROCKS3828d ago

You have a serious problem and need to do some MAJOR growing up...did you even read my first post?

"Yeah I wanted to set my 360 up but I never did because I don't like the fact the disc can definetly move because of it being on its side and it's really easy to knock over"

I don't even know how or why your trying to spin this as some sort of pro-microsoft banter. All I said was I don't stand mine up because I think it's a bad idea, I had that problem with my PS2. Oh and I only wished I worked for Microsoft it would mean I was doing pretty damn good for myself. But seeing as I am still in college for Journalism I most likely will never work for Microsoft any time soon or EVER. Also, I own a PS3 it sits under my TV right now, you want a picture? Once again, watch who you attack when your new and have no idea who people are...Oh and I hardly give negative feedback for any comments as I see it being unfair to try and censor someone for their opinion. I do give negative feedback for people that attack people with derogatory remarks, which is exactly what you did and it was totally uncalled for.

Syko3828d ago

Check the top because I posted this story. As you really don't even deserve a response I will just say I a agree with Rocks that you best not attack people that make this site what it is. Mart and Rocks have been here since you were in diapers so don't get on that trip.

And if you want to know the nature of the beast the 360 I currently have is my 4th one I got it on launch and had many problems. Sure I was pissed but after dealing with MS customer support they were outstanding, Hell they even sent me Kameo and PGR3 for free just for my hassles early on. So yeah I know the nature of the beast but I can't complain if the company helps to rectify the situation.

Anyways I posted this story because I did have a few friends on live a few months after launch complain about this problem and just figured it was worth hearing what the intelligent people on this site had to say about it. But then you posted and proved why I would hate to be on-line on a system that boast fans of your class. Xbox live has a bunch of idiots I can only imagine the silliness on PSN. Thank god most people don't have mics on that system or it would be a far worse epidemic. Please mind your tounge before you make yourself look like an ass all over this site. Please

frostbite063828d ago

Im gona have to agree w/ him. The console i use now (refurbed) scratches way more than my first one. None of us are little kids and we all know how to take care of game disks. Honestly, i wouldnt even know how to self induce some of the scratches that end up on my disk. The bigger problem is that my xbox wont even read some of my disks, while my friends xbox reads them just fine. God i dont want to talk to tech support again.....

PS360PCROCKS3828d ago (Edited 3827d ago )

Thanks man...that sucks that you have had that problem, I am a lucky one because mines from launch and it still runs fine...knock on wood, and I never in my life went out when a console launched to buy it so I am a little freaked from hearing everyones horror stories about launch systems...hopefully I continue to be lucky because I no longer have a warranty

edit:: Huntingyou (5.8) below my comment... Dude your cheese has DEFINETLY slid off it's cracker, my god that was the most rediculous rant I have ever seen...No one ever said this doesn't happen or said that it was ok that it happened. We're just understanding of the fact that electronics aren't perfect and can screw up and we're thinking of logical situations where idiots do move their consoles and try and blame it on the system. You sound like a paranoid conspiracy theorist man, take a chill pill...The whole point that we we're trying to make to you was what uxo22 said, we have been here a long time and you don't know how we feel about sony, microsoft, nintendo or whatever and blatantly attacking us and calling us idiots is not ok...

HuntingYou3827d ago

YOU GUYS ARE WRONG. PERIOD. AND YOU DO HAVE UR HEADS UP MS BUTT. TAKE AWAY ALL THE BUBBLES YOU WANT, AND EVANTUALLY MY VOICE WILL NO LONGER BE HEARD...BUT IT WON'T CHANGE THE FACTS.

IN THAT STORY MS CLEARLY BLAMMED IT ON THE CONSUMERS...200+ OF THEM.

YOU GUYS ARE CONSUMERS AND YET YOU STAND WITH CORPORATIONS! SOME OFYOU MENTIONED YOUR FRIENDS HAD THESE PROBLEMS, YET YOU STAND WITH THESE CORPORATIONS. MY WORST FRIENDS WORD MEANS 1000X MORE THEN ANY CORPORATIONS. YET YOU GO ON DEFENDING MS.

DO U THINK IF SONY AND MS DECIDED THAT TOMM. THEY SHOULD JOIN THEIR GAMING AND RULE THE MARKET, THEY WOULD GIVE TWO SH!TS ABOUT YOU.

I ON THE OTHER HAND WILL ALWAYS STAND WITH THE CONSUMER...UNLESS IT IS PROVED THAT THEY WERE DEFREUDING. WHICH IS NOT THE CASE HERE.

I KNOW THAT IF A COMPANY CAN TREAT THESE PEOPLE LIKE THIS TODAY, THEY CAN DO IT TO ME TOMMOREW AND THEY CAN DO IT TO YOU. EXCEPT I WON'T BE THER TO BLAME YOU.

I WILL STAND BY SHOULDER TO SHOULDER BY MART, ROCK, OR ANY OF YOU F A G G O T S, TO MAKE SURE THAT YOUR VOICE IS HEARD. I WILL DO MY BEST TO MAKE SURE YOUR PROBLEMS ARE NOT SWEPT UNDER THE RUG AND SQUACHED BY ANY COMPANY.

SOMEONE HINTED I MIGHT BE SONY. I MAY LIKE THEIR CONSOLE BETTER BUT I DON'T LIKE THEIR COMPANY. I OWN MS STUFF AND NOT SONY. I DON'T CARE FOR GOOK BS. GO AHEAD TAKE MORE BUBBLES...BUT

EVERYTIME LITTLE MARTY GETS PICKED ON, I'LL BE THERE...
EVERYTIME SONY KILLS LIK-SANG.COM, I'LL BE THER...
EVERYTIME MICROSOFT KILLS ZHAO JING'S BLOG, I'LL BE THERE...

WE ARE ALL GAMERS, AND WE NEED TO STICK TOGETHER FOR OUR SAKE...
WE ARE CONSUMERS AND WE NEED TO STICK TOGETER...
WHEN ONE COMPANY HAS SOMETHING HAPPEN OTHER CORPORATIONS LOBBY TOGETHER TO HELP THAT COMPANY, BECAUSE THEY KNOW ITS THEM TODAY, BUT IT COULD BE US TOMM.

I MAY NOT HAVE 30000 POSTS BUT I DO KNOW ONE THING...WE NEED TO DO, WHAT WE NEED TO DO, WHEN WE NEED TO DO IT. OTHER WISE WE MIGH AS WELL NOT DO IT ALL, FOR THAT WE SHOULD NOT EXPECT, THESE PEOPLE TO STAND BY US WHEN WE FALL.

POWER TO THE PEOPLE!!!

uxo223827d ago (Edited 3827d ago )

Chill Out Man,

It's not your point that everyone is attacking, it's the vehicle in which you are driving your point home in. I can tell you that I disagree with you, without calling you a @#$%^&* idiot! How many times have someone talked to you that way and you actually began to listen rather than refute?

Man, I was just reading your post without putting much thought into the subject. But, your tone (Metaphorically speaking) was so offensive that I didn't want to hear anything else you had to say. However, it did make me wonder if perhaps this particular subject was just near and dear to you, so I looked at your past posts, their pretty much the same way. Maybe it's this site that makes your inner ego come out, cause if this is how you talk to people in the real world, good luck working at Burger King for the rest of your life.

Hopefully before you slam dunk me and what I have just posted, you would at least read it and try to understand what I'm saying.

Thanks for your time.

P.S. Don't get me wrong man, you make some excellent points, a lot of which I agree whole heartedly. But, you don't ask for a piece of pie by saying give me a F**kin' piece of the F**kin' pie. At least I don't.
