Modern Warfare 3 Disc Read Error

Ok, so I'm one of the people who seems to have constant problems with the disc read error for Modern Warfare 3. I've checked everything. I've cleaned my system, I've cleaned the disc, I've tried other games and movies to make sure my disc reader isn't going out, and it just doesn't make any sense. I'm thinking about taking my copy back to gamestop in exchange for another one, but I don't know if they have any extra Hardened Editions or if I'll have to wait for Infinity Ward to make me a new one. The weird part is, after awhile of attempting to play, I can finally play, but when I go to play for the first time a day, the same thing happens over and over again. Since it's obvious that the Playstation 3 isn't the only one with this problem, does anybody have any ideas?

Mine did this for a long time as well bro.  I have a 360 though.  I finally downloaded the game to my hardrive and from now on, just run the game from that.  It has prevented the game from messing up, a considerable difference.

well, playstation 3 doesn't have an install to HDD option, otherwise I would have tried that. I just don't want to shell out more money for a game I've already had paid off since October that doesn't seem to work. Hopefully they make new discs and ship them to the people who are having the problem or create a patch that fixes the coding on the disc or something.

Man that is probably the least they could do.  They send out mass emails saying how much they care, i.e. how sorry they are that the new Elite servers are down bc of the massive amount of online traffic, but in reality i think so many of these problems could have been avoided.

I had the exact same kind of disc issues with my COD Black Ops, and so did a lot of people that I played with.  I take it back to Game Stop and they look at me like I am crazy, extremely frustrating.

I know, and if I contact Infinity Ward about this, they better not try to tell me they can't afford to make new copies to send out to people. They made $400 million from the U.S. and U.K. alone in 24 hours. They can afford to fix their mistakes. All I know for certain is if this doesn't get fixed soon, I'll more than likely just take it back for a refund and never buy another product from them again, and I think with alot of people having the same problem, they might do the same. Come on IW, listen to your customers.

Ï can even sign a mass class suit beacuse of this issue, too many people getting it, they don't do anything, so Activition do something before somebody take legal actions...
