So about a week ago my MW2 got lazerburn. I go on down to Gamestop to see if they can repair it, they say that If I bought the $3 warranty. I buy the $3 warranty and they give me a new copy of Modern Warfare2, and I think I could use a new controller because my other two barely work. So I buy a used controller for $39 and I get a normal black one..
When I get home I turn on the used controller, and notice that the xbox button doesn't really work/and I have to use the START button to turn on the controller. As I turn the it on the lights around the xbox controller are purple. Right now I'm thinking "Sweet I got a Modded controller, with LED lights!" So I go and put in my new copy of modern warefare and I go to check if the controller is actually modded. When I click start the game freezes and I have to switch controllers (Because the xbox button doesn't work) and I have to go to the dashboard. I try a few more times and the same result, so I go into a ground war game. It gets stuck when trying to start the game. I go to dashboard and try to install the game to my hard drive. Of course a message saying "Cannot read disk please use a clean cloth to clean it." (Its perfectly clean).
Back to the controller. I go on WaW to test if its modded and it is.. but two problems,
1: The xbox button doesn't work.
2: You cannot hit the "Y" buttons to switch weapons.
Now I have to drive to the gamestop (40 minutes away) and get a new disk/controller. What the hell.. Gamestop SUCKS.

You just realized that? They're a monopoly and that's why I bought stock in them.

They're not?? This is news to me because I can't think of one real competitor (don't say EB games because they were pretty much bought out when Gamestop made it big)

It could be the controller is dirty. Try cleaning it. As for the Mw2 game return it again and be all pissed off when you get there or just take it out in the back yard and put it out of its trouble :wink:
