There should be a way to play your game even if its scratched. At the moment you can if its installed to your hard drive, but what about if it got scratched before you had the chance to install? You cant install from the disc... So I thought what if below the install from disc option (Dashboard -> Game details ("Y" Button)) there could be a install from Xbox LIVE option. So even if the disc is scratched, so long as your Xbox can determine what game it is, you can just download the same install file that would have been placed if you installed from disc... from Xbox LIVE! (Of course it wouldn't download the file where if you buy the game digitally you can play without a disc). That way if your disc is scratched you can still install to hard drive via LIVE, and any scratched disc you have becomes usable once more! Now I know this would take a lot of server space but i believe Microsoft can handle that with ease. I looked it up and for some reason i came up with around 1,129 total Xbox 360 games and the biggest install file I have ever had was 6.7gb (not all are this big) so that would be around 7.6tb needed for every game's install file. I know there's a lot more needed for this to happen that i don't know about, but i think this is possible.
