Hi,

Best advice is to contact Rockstar, they might have had simular complaints about the game, the proof is in the pudding though, basically proving that it was the game that destroyed itself and not a defective console that did it, it also contacting MS to see if they had complaints.
From what you are though, it sounds like the laser is being told to get to close to the disc, causing the grinding noise and the groove in the disc.

Let know how you get on.

Cheers

The console plays some games but won't play other games. Grand Theft Auto 4 is one of the games that won't play.

Grand theft auto 4


The disk is mostlikely scratched, if so get it resurfaced at a music store, or buy one.

Weird lines and shapes when playing Grand theft auto 4


I have the basic 360 that came with nothing. Um this actually did happen with me a few times when I first bought the game. Exept my problem was a little different. 30 or so minutes into playing the game it would come over the side the game was unreadable or dirty. I had just bought the thing from wal-mart so I knew it was neighter. I just went out and bought one from game stop. Game stop seems like the best place to buy games anymore.

Broken Xbox306??


Yea, your console will still be under warranty, definately send it in for repair and get it over with so you can get to GTA4. They will also give you a free month of xbox live.
