My Xbox 360 lagged, i gave it a little slap which brought the disc out. Now the game, which happens to be fifa 12 is scratched and unplayable. I tried repairing it but failed and made things worse for myself.

Is there a way i can download it from the xbox marketplace without paying again? I can prove that i indeed have the disc, the box etc. even an ultimate team. What am i to do now?

I don't really want to contact EA because their forums require regestration into their stupid system, it's called Origin or something...


You could borrow a disc from a friend to install the game to your hard drive. Then use your disc to run FIFA.

My friend and I did the with MW2 - he severely scratched his disc, so I brought mine over his house to install the game. It worked fine afterwards.

No, there is no way to do this.

If the fault had been with the disc, you might have had a warranty depending on when you bought it; but as it was your own action then you must face the consequences.

    Why was this downvoted ? Either you bought insurance on the game or you didn't. If you didn't, you have to bite the bullet and buy a new game. ~$60 lesson learned ? – Zero May 12 '12 at 19:09

    agreed - upvoted. Slapping your console is not exactly a recommended course of action. – Alex May 12 '12 at 20:14
