One of my friend's disks did that too. He hasn't done anything about it yet, but he is borrowing mine now. I got it for Chrismtas and beat it in 3 days. Game is WAY too easy. I played it for around 3 hours a night for 3 nights and I beat it. Maxed out my player, got all 3 bonus things, and still had 21 experience points left over. I got 1st in every tournament (didn't change the difficulty when I got the game...which is set to medium normally).
