NCAA Football 08: Disk Unreadable, Experience Unbearable, Oversight Inexcusable…

Many gamers have encountered a disk unreadable error with this years NCAA 08 for the Xbox 360. Ripten discusses the issue and tries to get to the bottom of it asking for feedback from gamers.


Please Note: This is not meant to be an article bashing the 360. The goal here is to gain feedback from gamers that may have experienced this error with the NCAA game on the 360 or possibly something similar on the other consoles.

If a solution is out there then maybe it can be shared with others who are having the same problem. It may be a 360 issue, it may be a programming issue, or it may be something totally different.

Sure thing stevo, and I bet all those "display copies" of the game you try to pass off to angry customers that bring the game back in asking for another copy to try are really just display copies. No, there is no way they are other copies of the game that other frustrated gamers returned due to the same issue most likely.

You might want to reword that. I can't understand what you are saying.

I rented the game, got 700/1000 Achievement points, and took it back....never had a problem. There could be a bad "batch" of discs in circulation, or these people all had failing drives, but there's no way this is a common/widespread issue with the game.

Really Tom? There are several boards that are dedicated to the disk unreadable error with this game. Just because you and your 80's mustache haven't had the problem doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

i dnt have ncaa but i have the exact same problem with madden. Some times it works sometimes it dosent. sometimes it freezes some times its disk error and sometimes it disconnects me from online games after 1 play. Like the game dosent load properly or something because it dosent load the special abilities icon under the players you know like lightings speed and canon arms and all that stuff. I tried changing the disc but dnt wanna change to a used one still waiting for my local gamestop 2 get new 1's in stock. This dosent happen to any of my other games though just madden. The disc isnt scratched in anyway so it might or might not be the 360 not loading it properly but either way it still sucks

Yea, I hear ya man. I went to Gamestop a few times, but I am not buying the "we don't have any new ones in stock". I think they keep the new ones for new purchases and force users with this issue to exchange their bad copy with a copy that was returned.
