A friend just opened 3 copies of Halo 3 Limited Edition and with all three copies both disc were loose inside of the package and scratched to death.

This Limited Edition has a piss poor plastic nub and foam pad disc holding design that is a major flaw and the discs pop off with ease.

Worse then the Prey Collectors Edition!!

If mine is like this I will keep returning it until I get one that is perfect and I think this will be almost impossible.

This is what you are going to see when you open your Halo 3 Limited Edition:

Both Discs Loose and floating around inside.



Both discs Scratched to death. (look worst in person)



Here is the crap these brainless morons put inside the tin box to hold the discs.



I don't know about anyone else but for my $75.00 I'm not going to live with CRAP like this.

I'll keep returning until I get one that is right.

Good luck to everyone with the Limited.

Fixed for the grammar Nazi.

There's no way that nub can actually hold a DVD and survive shipping. The profile is too low.

Bullshit. You plop down $400 for high quality 360s, you'll gladly hand over your $75 for high quality Halo 3 packaging.

Don't slip in the sarcasm puddle btw.

They are not stacked on top of each other.

One is on the front cover and the other on the back, both loose.

Nope. Legendary game disc comes in a tweaked regular edition case with the old school clip to hold the disc.

Why does this not surprise me from a company that cuts productioncosts by removing $0,03 worth of rubber support-cushions that would normally do that pesky job of preventing physical contact between laser and disc?

I noticed that as well, and put it down as being a rare one off but after seeing these close up pictures of the shitty nub holding the CD it's no wonder that the disc is loose in the case.
