My Xbox 360 won’t play a game?

Ok, so I have a brand new xbox 360 elite… 250 GB hard drive… Just bought the thing three months ago. Mostly watch netflix on it, but I also play MW2 and Red Dead Redemption…

A couple of weeks ago I bought a brand new copy of Force Unleashed for $ 15 and played it twice…

Yesterday I put Force Unleashed in to play and it started to play the intro and I immediately shut the xbox off from my controller because I was eating lunch and only wanted to put the game is so when I did start to play it would be all set up..

Well, when I turned the machine on the game wouldn’t load. First it was stuck on a black screen. Another attempt resulted in a message that said the disc was reading as a DVD rather than a game.

Now I didn’t move the xbox. It’s in a well ventilated area. The game is brand new, I only played it twice, as is the xbox itself. ALL of my other games play without a probelm. MW2, RDR, Fable 2, Splinter Cell Conviction. But for some reason the Force Unlieashed won’t load up and play. I only got the DVD message once. Every other time, I get a frozen black screen. Keep in mind that it literally started up with no problem right before but I quickly shut the system off becasue I wasn’t ready to play yet…

What in the world could be wrong?

I even deleted all of the game’s save data because I thought it might have been corrupted… which sucks because I was more than half way through it.

    Does the game play in another xbox?

    It could be the disc, how many times have you tried to load the game? Try letting your xbox sit for a few days and if that doesn’t work then you can always call 1-800-4myxbox and they’ll give you instructions on where to send your xbox and have it fixed. :) Good luck.

    i have the xbox elite and force unleashed and it works fine but my friends old xbox wouldnt read any game and their xbox was broken so its not that so you just need a new game go to game stop ,game crazy where ever you bought it return it and ask for a new one it will be free for i think a couple of months or a year i dont remember but you can still return it

    I had a problem kind of like that and i cleared the system cache and that fixed my problem to get there you go to system settings and it in there somewhere. Also make sure no disc is in there because it will erase the memory in the xbox

    I agree with the ‘deleting your cache’ solution.
