i put madden 12 in my console and it says "Play Madden 12" i press play, EA comes out (its in the game), and then the intro plays in full. After the intro it says loading and the loading refreshing symbol is supposed to spin and spin, but this time it does not. It just stays still and i cant go to the dashboard or anything which means that its frozen. I check the disc and there is no crack in the middle of the disc, but if i aim the disc in an angle to the light to see if there is a problem i see (bear with me because this is pretty hard to explain) like a light blob on the disc. When i shine the disc most of the disc is in a darker shade than the light blob on the disc so this looks like this may be the problem. No the disc is not cracked, it has scratches but i have played it for a year so the scratches dont make a big difference.
