Can I ask GameStop to temporarily sell me Xbox 360 games I already have to install them and bring them back?


I have five different Xbox 360 games. They are Halo: Reach, Portal 2, Grand Theft Auto IV, Call of Duty: Black Ops, and Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare. They all play fine for the most part (Black Ops has corrupted one of my DLC’s and now I can’t play Shangri La, which irritates me). However, when I try installing them to the hard drive, only Halo: Reach was able to be installed. All of the other games gave error messages saying the disc was not readable and could not be installed. Would it be possible to either:

A) Put them in my disc drive and then install them from the Internet, or

B) Take them to GameStop, explain the situation, and see if they could get me replacement discs so I can install my games and then give them back?

I legally own all of these games, and I would only need replacement discs temporarily.

  1. Option A is illegal and requires you to mod your 360. I doubt Gamestop would let you borrow their games to install so option B also won’t work. You can rent the games and install them. Then you can see if your own discs are in good enough shape to be verified at the beginning. If they are, they will then run from the installed copies.

  2. I’ve done this at my local Gamestop (I’m cool there, long story). They told me if I brought my Xbox there, they would let me use the disc to install it. If they won’t let you do that, then just buy the game, keep the receipt, and take it back after you install it, and do with all the games.

    Edit: To Milk84, option A is NOT illegal if you own the games. If you own the game then it is legal to own a “backup” copy, even if it’s from the internet.

  3. buy a used game from gamestop and you’ll be able to return it within 7 days and get your money back. can’t return new games from gamestop, once you buy it its yours, no buts.
