I been thinking since I been reading up on the 360 disc killer issues, its time retail steeped up to be their for its costumers and such.

MS has the power to simply exchange any damaged disc for free but they should tie it into live if you pay the 50 a year for live you should be able to mail and get a new game disc of the one thats broken.
Free live users theres a 5$ fee,non live users theres a 10$ fee (compared to the 20$ currently used for all).
MS has the power to do this and it would enhance their rep with consumers.

Retail (starting with GS/EB)can also update their "exchange" system they already have in the machines data on most if not all newer games how hard would it be to implement a user database to store names and numbers and 9 months history of games bought,this could be use by retail to track sales and climate of the industry as well as black list consumers that want to take advantage of the system,and yes I am talking about returns don't give me your TOS,EULA,POS,LICENSE mubojumbo,you get a bad game you hate it you should be able to exchange it without snide and condescending looks from the "industry".
I do understand that you need to save money but their is a limit to such things, creating a user database is the first setup giving them 3 returns a month for console and portable games(not PC) is REASONABLE.
Now enhance it to 3 extra games and include PC games in that for 10 a year (a few thousand customers X 10 a year =MONEY) now if their is anything wrong with the key then by all means put a mark against the one that returned it after 3 or 5 marks you lose that subscription for the year as well as a years worth of returning PC games, you may pay for another years worth of the 10$ subscription to get the extra 3 a month back but you would be blacklisted to return PC games for 12ish months, now heres the kicker for 25$ a year you get the stores discount card plus a max return for the month of 10 games this would be a premium membership.

Surely out of all retailers EB/GS would have the power to implement such a system, I still have not broken my boyycott of GS/EB sicne I started it 6 years ago, even with them having the only copies of Bioshock LE I have even have gone as far as to see what I can import from Europe because I refuse to by it from them because of their anti consumer activities, yes I might be nawing on my tinfoil hat a bit much but with MS just getting around to doing something about its console issues and sony waking up to the reality a 500+ system wont sale the industry needs a consumer wake up call.


Ah modern gaming its like modern film only the watering down of fiction and characters is replaced with shallow and watered down mechanics, gimmicks and shiny-er "people".
