My GoW Collection game disc has developed cracks on the center eye/hole and i am skeptical of playing the game now.
The cracks are not on the data area but just on the clear plastic in the center.

I think putting a super glue will do the trick but few doubts crop up..

1) The disc would be subjected to spinning @ high speeds which means heat will be generated. If this leads to super glue to flake/liquidify
its gonna be a problem for my ps3.
2) Is the super glue corrosive in nature?
if that is the case, another possible hazard in the waiting.


Posting here to garner some advice as maybe some member might have been in similar situation..
Pls do suggest me a solution. Thanks in advance.

Ditch the game. Using Super Glue and putting it into a PS3 is huge risk. For 1299 bucks game your 20k costing PS3 might be damaged. If you like the game that much, get the game from TP. Its selling very cheap, around 600 bucks.

I recently purchased the game from a member and i think these cracks have cropped up during transit.
Havent even played game beyond 20 mins. If restoration is possible.. well maybe a chance.

Secondly havent seen anybody sell the game on TP either.

Don't try this kind of thing. It will most definitely result in clogging up some stuff inside your drive. Since its second hand, only option is to buy a new one.

Yea the disc i recd had the crack already and i am very disappointed with the outcome.

Seller was very co operative and i dont think i should put the blame on him regarding concealing of any detail. I didnt asked for a pic of the center eye of the disc and also other accounts of the disc condition were true that he mentioned. Maybe the disc indeed got the cracks while in the transit.. but how to really 'sort' it out is something even i am not very clear about.. no history of such incident has been recorded. I have asked a mod here how to go about it and he wasnt too clear about the matter as well.
Maybe this thread will help me on this front.

Even i have a game that has slight crack on the center of the disc but it works perfectly...infact i finished the game without any issues....I dont see any problem with that it should work just like any normal disc....but yea it does kinda hurt when there is something like that on the disc...

My friend had original NOLF disc for PC which got some crack in the middle and he put it into his disc drive and BAM his disc was shattered. Luckily his drive was alright.

try toothpaste, it works. though it may damage the lens, for expensive things like ps3 i think its better to chuck the disc.

Maybe to amalgamate the cracked surfaces together once it dries up. Even so, it's too big a chance to take :P

^^who was the seller?
When did you notice the crack?
Had he mentioned whether there was a crack?

Ditch the disc, no use risking PS3. And when one has all such doubts in mind, sh*t is bound to happen.

From now on, even I'll check my discs and crap bricks if I see any faults :wallbash:

I am bringing this thread out of the grave, just like the OP, I am in a situation where the disc that I just received from the seller has a small crack on the inner circle. I called the seller immediately after unpacking and have also shared the pictures as below. I have not yet loaded the disc in to my PS3 yet.

Please also note that I am blaming the seller here, the disc was "held in place" by a tape on 2 sides, though I have not used this technique with my shipments, it may be a way to keep the disc form loosening out of the slot. The shipment was sent by speed post and the disc case was wrapped in a single layer bubble wrap. Since, I did not ask the seller for close up images of the back/front of the disc, there is no way to establish when was the crack formed.

What is the suggestion of fellow IVG gamers here? is it safe to use a disc like that? my first thoughts are to return it to the seller, but I would also like to know what does the community feel about cracked discs and a transaction like this:

cracked disc images.

I think u you mean you are Not blaming the seller here..

Few members mentioned it was safe to play as many have played and finished
Others were of the opinion that one shdnt try to take the risk.. i agree with the latter group myself.

My suggestion would be to split the cost mutually on a 50-50 basis. Insurance on small items like this + frequent shipment of games negates the insurance part. So courier ppl wont reimburse the amount.
Not much to do apart from sharing the cost on equal basis.

Wishing you luck mate..
