There are certain games that may be classified as some sort of special edition games. These games which you have listed above can be said to fall into this category.
Majority of these games are made specially and specifically for some systems or console.
The only sure way to be sure if your disc is damaged or not is to try playing it on another console and see if it gives the same error.
If it does give the same error, you can be sure that the disc is really spoiled and the only thing to do is to try to fix it or get a new one.
On the other hand, if it doesn't show this error, you could check to make sure that is possesses the same region code as the region code of the disc that your console is designed to work with.
This is a sure way to know if your disc is bad or isn't just compatible.
Although, it is most likely that the problem is coming from the disc and not your console as other discs work
Let me know how far you went with this problem.

My ps3 works and runs just fine, except it doesnt read blurays/games.. when i put a game in it waits about 15 seconds then makes a loud noise kind of like a click sound and similar to the sound it makes...


Well it sounds like the laser in your PS3 went out. I would get the model number, and the size of the HD and check around your town. Most towns have somewhere where you can take them to be tested and fixed. If not, then you will have to send your system off to Sony for repair.

My xbox360 game mercenaries2 does not work it allways turns of.


IS it giving you an error message?

If the 360 is shutting itself off, then this has nothing to do with the game, and you have some form of power supply problem. Try a different game. If it still does it, you most likely need a new power adapter. If you are getting an error message (unplayable disc/dirty or damaged disc) Then the most likely cause is your optical lens in the DVD drive is dying.

My playstation 2 makes a weird clicky sound when I try to play some of my dvds or games and sometimes it comes up with disk error or unable to read disk and its a brand new disk


Your PS2 lens is displaced from its original position that is what scratching your Discs and makes weird noises too.There can possibly be another reason for them ,your PS2's reading lens is dirty and it is covered by a layer of dust that scratches your Discs and makes sounds too.
You should first clean the lens of your PS2 watch this video to know how to clean your PS2's lens:


Disk read errors are mainly due to dirty or worn out lens,so clean your PS2's lens to get rid of this problem and as for that sound that will get fixed by cleaning lens if still it makes that sound then you will have to take your PS2 to repairer to set the lens height.
Thank you!

Can not read disc


If Wii gives Disc Read Error, first step you need to check is to try another disc or clean the exisitng disc. This will confirm that problem is with either Wii or Disc. If the console itself is giving disc read error then it needs to be repaired. You may check out DIY Wii Fix Guide, that will show step by step information to fix the problem yourself. It also gives information on fixing many Wii Related Problems, so its a kind of Wii Problems Reference Fix Guide

Rockband PS2 brand new disc will not read


I had a similar problem with a "Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty disc".

Disc would not play, but it was in mint condition. I had no choice but to return it to the store and get a new copy, which worked.

There must have been an error when the company burned the disc.

Loud noises


Depending on the age of the system, replace or ignore.
Its your DVD drive, unfortunatly most drives are noisy -FACT- so sometimes you have to just live with it- check the back ,if manfactured in 2005 ( a lot of bad drives from this year) might be worth ringing microsoft to see if an exchange is possible.-
But if its not showing any loss of play/loading or scratching the discs - or showing error- please place disc in a xbox 360 console...You may just have to put up with it.
