    Activision has said it will replace faulty Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock discs after some defective copies of the game slipped into the retail channel.

    As reported by Destructoid, the dodgy discs randomly become unreadable, which isn't fun when you're midway through nailing a lengthy solo.

    "Activision recently learned that some consumers may be experiencing a disc reading issue with Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock," the company's US arm said in a statement. "We are taking immediate action to research this issue including testing discs.

    "Naturally, Activision will honor its warranty and offer existing customers free replacement discs in exchange for any purchased defective disc. Activision is fully committed to satisfying every Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock fan so they can enjoy a great gaming experience."

    That's the least they can do after selling defective products.

    Valve would've gone a step further and given you free copies of one of their games, for you to use yourself or give to a friend.

    Replacing faulty discs is a right, but Activision appear unapologetic by not doing anything else.

    Which console was it faulty on? Or was it all 3?

    you can see it like this too:
    at least they replace faulty copies, unlike some companies who do nothing even if every copy is faulty.

    There is a big difference between bugs and complete unplayability of a disc. Activision is doing the bare minimum to not have the BBB sent after them.

    That's just what I expect of Activision really, not giving anything back to the gaming community and exploiting them for all their worth.
    Why else make Golden Eye for the Wii? Because they know it'll sell simply through legacy.

    That's all. A "Sorry"?? RupeeClock is right. Activision should've gone that one step further.
