Apologies if this is in the wrong section, but my disk has broke (and right near the end of the game), looks like it has a nasty scratch.

its the xbox 360 version, and i don't want to pay out another 40 on a replacement, anyone know how i can go about getting a new disk?

Only advice i can give is to buy a new one and to be more careful with your disc's

try to install the game on the hard drive
and play from the HD thay way the machine don't have to read the disc while you play.

that's what i always do.

hope you don't have to buy another.

even the discs that havve been destroyed by the fault in the 360 can be replaced (MS claim it's not their fault the 360 cant hold a disc in place) so to be honest they only way your going to finish the game is a new disc, meaning you will either need to go rent the game or buy a new copy.

Given the way the game saves data I wonder how that will work. If I beat the game and then sell my disk, then a few weeks later a friend brings their copy over to my house... will I be able to load my saved data to their disk? The menu section for the save slots doesn't really have a load feature that looks to the HD does it? Anyone tested this?

Edit: I'm guessing the console views all copies of a game as the same and loads up the data as I have it saved on my system regardless of the actual disk?

See that kinda stinks too. Since they locked the system data to the console you cant take your game progress to another system... So instead of being able to download your game data to a USB drive and take it with you, how could you show off your progress?

do you know how to remove your hard drive from the top of your 360?

How can you possibly think that saves are stored on the disk? how old are you? 5?

as long as the discs are from the same region they will work, so if you played on a US disc you would need another US disc to pick up your saves.

Cant believe that is $25. Microsoft is such a rip off.

I don't know about the ps3, but on the 360 you can store your profile and gamesave on a 360 memory card, and play the game on another 360 by loading the profile from the memory card. (There's even a trick to share gamer score across profiles this way, unless the new update fixed that along with 3rd party mem cards.) The previous profile on the console has to be signed out. the ps3 locks game saves to each ps3 I believe.

BEFORE YOU BUY A NEW DISC!

Find out if any stores in your area can resurface your disc. Here, I can take my scratched discs to Game Crazy and pay $2 for them to grind down the surface of the disc, effectively removing the scratch.

thanks for those who posted, i was hoping to see if Ubisoft had a system in place for faulty disks ->send in and we replace<- as other companies do.

Think my current work around will involve renting a disk and loading that onto the hard drive (won't currently load as only gets so far before it backs out), then by having the faulty disk in the drive, i should be allowed to play on.

******ed? Really? Are YOU like 5yrs old?
For your information, since your such an "expert" when it comes to technology, Memory Stick is a proprietary card which is trademarked by Sony. Last time I checked, the Xbox didn't have any "memory stick" card slots on it. If you think that the item linked in your post is a Memory Stick, then you need to question your own understanding on technology.
So yeah, you are a big FAIL when it comes to making fun of others.
