An addendum to my last “Halo” blog post: We’ve done a bit more experimenting on the disc scratchage.
I just opened up one of the $129 “Legendary” units and found it had a different packaging approach that shouldn’t lead to scratched discs.
Inside the huge box, above the commemorative helmet, there was a plastic tray. In the tray was the game disc in standard, plastic, clamshell package.
We also received another “Limited” unit. Before I opened the shipping package, I could tell the discs were going to have scratches — they were rattling around inside. My editor opened it up and found what appear to be cosmetic scratches but nothing serious.
To be sure, though, I better head home early and give it a try …
