So my 60lb dog jumped down from my lap onto my console ( ::insert joke here:: ), jarring the disc inside loose and the console insanely scratched it up inside. It's the worst kind of scratch too -- the one where it runs in a circle along the disc. Disc repair didn't help.
I have an idea of borrowing a friend's copy or renting it, then installing it to HDD. Since I own the scratched up disc and it does boot to the main menu properly, I was hoping an installed copy would cure my ills.
Just curious if this works.
