I thought for sure that the Xbox 360 was going to be on that list. It seems like it would be so fitting for this place.

you'd think the 360 would be on this list, because buying a used 360 is like shooting yourself in the foot...but since MSN is a Microsoft website, i can see why they would leave it out

360 should be on the top.

Not only do you have defects that might not surface immediately but you have consoles that may have been Live banned, modded or tampered with in some other way. Buying a 360 used is just a bad idea unless you can get it for $150 or less. At that price if it breaks you can still probably part it out and break even.

also agrees. It should be it's own category. lol.

No because you shouldn't buy a 360 new or refurbished either until they sort out the faulty hardware. Because that 3 year warranty doesn't last forever.

I tell everybody if your going to get an Xbox 360 system do not get it used. My advice go to Vegas and gamble your money the chances are so much better.

MSN is owned by MS, so that's why 360 is not on the list.
