This is odd. I've been playing Red Dead for hours day in day out. I just went to play it and my PS3 couldn't read the disc. So I took the disc out and noticed a small crack coming from the centre ring leading out to where the data starts. I have no idea how this could happen as I teat my games better than I treat myself as gaming is my life. I Googled to find if there was anyway of getting a replacement disc and noticed a lot of peoples copy of Red Dead for the PS3 as had a crack appear on the disc in the same place as mine.
What could possibly have caused this? My PS3 Slim as never damaged a disc before. You can imagine how I feel after paying £49.99 for the collectors Edition for this to happen. I've sent a message to Rockstar Support to see if I can get a replacement disc. I'll be furious if they don't help.

This happened to me too in 2008 with the Ratchet & Clank: Tools of Destruction disk. I didn't know how this happened either since it broke while it was in the machine (and not as Sony say it could have happened by it cracking when I took it out of the BD case clip). I sent the disk to Sony and a couple weeks later sent it back to me saying that it is not Sony's fault and therefore won't compensate me.
Nothing you can do other than to buy a new disk, I'm afraid.
P.S. Rockstar will defo not help since it not their fault it broke, and if Sony's stance hasn't changed they won't help either.
