    Need help here

    Ok so my madden has a lovely ass groove...it starts up until you go past the open sequence, then the message comes up that either my console is dirty or the disk is f'ed.

    I really can't buy another one right now :( i was wondering if i could borrow someone else's, put it on my HDD, then use my disk just to start the game up...would that work?

    Dont know. If you have the receipt you can go to a random game store and have them buff it so it looks good. Then you can return it for a new one. If you dont have a receipt you can buff it and try to return it to Wal Mart without a receipt.

    i tried to install with my CD, got to 10% and wouldn't go further. :(

    so if i get another one, install i don't need the disk? because i did this with NCAA10 and it wouldn't let me play it unless NCAA10 was in my disk drive.

    It never hurts to try and trick wal mart. They may let you exchange for exact game without receipt.

    First thing I would try is to get it buffed. If that doesnt work than try to get tricky, aka screw over Wal Mart. Maybe sell it to an ex girlfriends 5 year old?

    What I would say is "I got this as a gift and all of a sudden it stopped working. I don't have a receipt but was wondering if I could exchange it for the same game"

    Whats the worse they could say??? No?? If they do you walk out....you not trying to steal anything.....i have dont it before there so it should work.

    it wont work at target.....ill confirm that.

    You could trade it in to ebgames and get $30 for it.

    You can get it buffed at any Gamestop or the like. They do it for free at some game shop by my house, cant cost more than a couple bucks.

    Walmart's policy used to be if the game was opened it could only be exchanged for same title. Unsure if receipt is needed or if policy was changed.
