Anybody have there's like this?

I used to have mine standing straight up until it destroyed 2 of my games. Left a circular scratch/ring around them. They were toast. Just a warning.

Well it did sort of I guess....after a while it was just "What else can I use to smash a zombie brains out" or just finding stupid things to do in the game. I found it entertaining...lol

I liked Dead Rising. I never beat it tho. I couldnt find a way to do all the missions in time and I got tired of having 2 start over and over........

I seem to switch my 360 from a horizontal position to standing up often..

I have it on my entertainment center, so it saves space when it's standing up

I never knew about it ruining games though..

Yeah if the disk gets caught on anything or jars it just scratches a deep groove around it...

kicking it over doesn't help either though...

Hmmm that could explain it for me. Mine did snag a couple times. Not bad but I guess it was enough to do damage.

Apparently, when you just hit the Xbox power button (Ring of Light) to turn it off, and the console is horizontal, the disc will actually slam down because it wasn't stopped. This ruins games also.

I prefer (and do this everytime) pressing the Guide button, and Y for the Xbox Dashboard. This stops the game, and then I can shut down safely.
