WHAT ON GODS GREEN EARTH DID MY PS3 DO TO MY GAME?!

7 replies 63 views Edited May 14, 2012

so... i deicded to play some warhawk till starhawk decides to arrive at my doorstep. i haven't played warhawk in a few months, so it was nice to look at the games case. it brought back memories. i inserted the game and waited for it to load. suddenly my ps3 slim did a sound, it seemed like the ejecting sound but the game didn't eject. then i noticed, the game icon wasn't appearing on the screen.. so i thought the game must be dirty or something, (since i take REAL good care of my games) i took out the game and got ready to clean some dirt. i flipped my game disk around... and to my horror i see..

Try another disc to find out.

Just because you take good care of your games, doesn't mean that someone else does as well. Did you let someone "borrow" it and they proceeded to ravage it? Or does someone else have access to you game collection?

i have seen similar things happen to people by not being careful from just removing the disk from its case,sometimes thos little tabs are stronger than the disk and this happens,i doubt the ps3 did this,in fact theres actually no way it could unless theres something else stuck in the drive..

no one has access to my game collection ... however my dad does remove game disks from my ps3 to sometimes play a game.. and i did catch him leaving my game disks on tables without him putting them in the game case.. and i did tell him to start putting them in the cases.. i wonder if he placed it in the case violently causing it to crack... dam it.. anyway.. i'm glad you all agree that the ps3 cant do this.

luckly warhawk isn't expensive these days.. it was a good game to have in my collection. thanks for everyones help.

i think its the game case the scratched it... cause im sure tha the ps3 dosent do that unless u shake it violently while the disc is spinning.. maybe ur dad or someone else did not do it carefully like they just jammed the disc into the holder or they took it out in the wrong way

Agreed. The tabs in the boxes are extremely firm, and at times i use two hands to get my disks out.

To me, it seems you removed the game out of the box wrong and it got cracked. That crack is enough to put an air bubble between the film and the plastic of the disk. Once you put the game inside, something must have caught the uneven surface and ripped it off.
