    they are now replacing damaged discs but for $20 so this kind of is a comeback to the reason why we make backups. but this is real bull shit as it is filled with stupid rules.
    further research:

    they also are improving there warranty but this is just to get customers after all they are treating 360 owners like shit after they get the 3 red light they send refurbs that have the same problem after a month or so.

    Over here in Australia you buy the 'game guarentee' from EB, which cost $3 or $5 depending on the value of the game. If you buy it they will replace your disc unlimited for a year if you screw the disc. It can be in the worst possible condition but they won't take it if it's snapped in half, but that's pretty damn hard to do.

    It's actually a pretty sweet deal. The only catch is if they have a pre-owned version of the game you're claiming it on, that's what they give you. You only get a new disc if they have no pre-owned copies of the game; and if you're like me, I won;t put a disc in my 360 with even the tiniest scratch on it, I don't want to stress and screw my laser.

    I ruined 3 PS2s by using crappy TDK media so I'm ultra careful bout the discs I use, wether they be original or a back-up.

    You don't get a refurb... you now get you own console back. Plus it comes with a new 1 year warranty if it was expired when you sent it in.

    I don't really care about a ban. If it happens, it happens. Anyways, I've decided to get out of the backup scene on the 360 and sell all my ****. I have about 110 games and a premium ms28 xbox360. Manu. Date is 11-10-06. Anyone wanna offer me something?

    Sorry, off topic but how reliable is it to sell something on craigslist? I have a perfect fake scammer now trying to rid me of my 360.

    Takes up waay too much time. My brother wants games, people at work, ect... So I have to "get em all" and that's expensive as hell. So I'll just sell what I have now, except for Guitar Hero 2, buy the elite 360 and go legit.

    What do you expect when you tell people that you can make copies of 360 games and mod consoles???? I hardly ever advertise my capabilities for that reason, only to the select few who I'm close to and are computer literate.

    yeah same here ps2, people are always trying to get me to get them games and crap, but unless the own the game, im a real hard ass on them, dont sell copies of games that people dont own, im not going down for that mess. but i do mod consoles for people around here. and you should charge them for the games you burn. 10 bucks a game. or 5 bucks if they provide the dvd :)

    Even at 10 bucks each, it's 14 minutes to read the game, 26 to burn. An hour for 10 bucks isn't worth my time anymore. Especially when you only have MAYBE 4 hours a day to spend with the wife & kids. And I also don't backup games for people that don't have the original. I'm already played with the feds before and I don't want to play with them again.
