Gamers who have bought Halo 3: ODST only to be faced with unreadable disc errors when have flocked to Bungie's support forum to complain about the apparent defect.
Despite the thread on the problem presently having collected 67 pages of responses, Microsoft is downplaying the true extent of the problem.
A Microsoft spokesperson told Eurogamer, "We are aware of a very small number of people who are reporting they can't play the game… We are looking into it, but at this point it doesn't appear to be a widespread issue."
Those who have reported the problem say that the Xbox 360 running the Halo 3: ODST game disc will crash, forcing the gamer to quit and reset the game, thus losing progress. Others are even reporting that consoles don't perform to the same level of reliability following the initial error.
