Mass Effect 3 has game breaking bug on Xbox

TLDR;

A bug in the Xbox 360 version of Mass Effect 3 leaves many gamers, including myself, behind in the conclusion to a, until now, great science fiction experience. This is probably the last nail in the coffin for EA.

I can't even play the game due to a glitch on the Xbox 360 version of Mass Effect 3. After playing the game for one day, the next morning I tried to play the game again and to my surprise it started crashing before it even got to the title screen. At first, I assumed this was just a reading error on the part of the Xbox itself. I took the game out, examined it for scratches, and then tried to play it again to no avail. I then tried to install the game to my hard drive, which gave no results. Eventually, after many different attempts at getting the damn thing to work, I went to the Internet for help. Turns out, there is a game breaking bug that makes the game completely unplayable. This video basically sums up what occurs in the glitch. 

There is also a thread on the Bioware social page detailing the issue. As of now, Bioware says that they are "investigating it" and that we may see a patch by the end of the month. As of now, there is no fix to the issue and there may be no compensation from EA or Bioware. This glitch is sure to enrage many Mass Effect fans and put another dent on ME3's already fragile reputation. Anyone else run into this issue?
