Gamer gets a blank disc in his CoD4 box

DVDA gamer happily purchased a copy of Call of Duty 4 at Best Buy and was surprised to find that when he opened the game box, the disc inside was completely blank.

The following is an excerpt of the gamer’s experience:

"I take it up front, finish my exchange and head home. Halfway there my buddy opens up this FACTORY SEALED copy and starts laughing followed by a couple choice four lettered words. I look and staring back at us out of the box is a completely virgin (even fingerprintless) disc. U-TURN! We get back to Best Buy and I walk up to the associate who had went in back for the game, this conversation follows

‘Hi, I just got this here but there’s a problem.’
‘What seems to be wrong sir?’
‘Well I was wondering where you grabbed this box from…’
‘Oh no, oh my God no, oh sweet Jesus was it blank?’

However my debacle went much smoother as the woman proceeded to exchange it without a problem…they were out of Cod4s, but I got a gift card for the exact amount.

On a side note, the GeekSquad ass who was next to the customer service was a jackass and suggested I was scamming them because this is the second one of these he’s seen in the last week, with the same kind of blank Phillips disc. Best part being where he told me prison is totally worth a $50 game. I’ve never liked GeekSquad anyways…"

Considering his situation, should you immediately open a purchased game to make sure everything is in order or should you take your chances and just open it at home?
