What is this bull****? Microsoft is getting cheaper and cheaper, and then charging us more money for it? These new xbox cases cracked my disks, and I think microsoft should go back to the old design...

The cases are pretty cheap. However you can't really crack it through the case unless you sat on it or crushed it somehow.

QFT - It's funny how people point the finger at 'Xbox' or 'Microsoft', when it's common sense that failed.

Even with the MW2 Hardened Edition, it's really hard to remove the game disc from the case, and that's pushing the middle bit in aswell.

the same thing happened to me bro. I'd recommend you install it into your hard drive so that the game plays from their instead of directly from the disc. Oh and use a case that has the original case design. If you have WaW or cod 4 use that case.

Scratch that just use a jewel case 100 times better than 360 case's

Think of it like this...They make about a million cases a day right and out of those million only about 2000 games are actually damaged. Plastic can get expensive with that amount and its one of the worst materials on the earth.. their savings on the percent of plastic they use in bulk is cut down hugely and with that money then they can easily fit in the broken games into their equation which actually isn't that much. MS probably uses around 4$ for an actual game and probably about a quarter on the case.

0.25x1000000=$250000 in cases 250000/22%=$11363.6363636 in savings
4x2000= $8000
There really isn't that many games that get damaged really...MS at this point should do a survey for every game bought and ask people if the new case bothers them

You're an idiot.

Yeah man you really just have to be easy with it I know some case are stiffer than others but grabbing one end and bending it until it pops out is only asking to crack it..

Omg, Microsoft would never take advantage of us for money!
How dare you accuse them of such a thing.
