Halo ODST: disc read errors 'not widespread'

We like Halo ODST. What gamer doesn’t? It’s a rip roaring blasty romp through a world in which you get to blast and romp to your heart’s content. However, there seem to be a considerable number of people who are having problems even playing the game, and are getting disc read errors while playing in the game’s campaign and Firefight modes.

Microsoft don’t seem to be taking the problem very seriously, claiming that it is a very small number of people who are experience the problems.

‘We are aware of a very small number of people who are reporting they can't play the game,’ they said. ‘At this point it doesn't appear to be a widespread issue.’

In that case, would Microsoft like to explain why Joystiq did a survey which included 5,608 players of the game, with 31.5% of them saying that they had experienced ‘technical issues’ with the game? If it carries on like this it won’t be long before either Microsoft or Bungie announce a recall, a refund or both. Your move, massive technology corporations.
