Not all gamers buying Halo 3 Limited Edition packs received a scratched disc. Copies sent out to Australia apparently contained a cunningly hi-tech device to stop the disc from being damaged.

Think in legalese.....
It's quite likely that someone already holds a patent on this stunning bit of technology, and it applies to the North American and European markets. In their brilliance, they most likely forgot that humans also occupy the southern hemisphere and so didn't bother to apply for rights below the equator.

I can see it now...
...The Return of The Disk Part 2 coming to a youtube near you!!!
Can't wait for that one!

Probably was a different manufacturer... But it wouldn't surprise me if they all came out of China or somewhere like that.
Just random luck saw the one delivering for Australia have some idea about physics.
