Xbox 360 game disc exchange
If you’ve purchased a game on disc and it doesn’t install on your console, you can exchange it within 90 days of purchase under the terms and conditions of the Microsoft Game Disc Exchange Program.
Note Before contacting us for an exchange, be aware of the following:
You should first attempt to exchange your disc with the retailer you purchased it from. Most retailers offer a limited exchange period for damaged or faulty discs.
If your Xbox 360 console can't play a disc, first try using the
Xbox Disc Drive Solution to resolve the problem. The Microsoft Game Disc Exchange Program applies ONLY to games published by Microsoft and is subject to availability. If the game is published by another company, contact that company for its policy regarding exchanging discs. To browse Microsoft games, go to
