You can buy an Xbox 360 for the low price of $99.99 at GameStop right now ... but be warned, it's a bit of a gamble.
This isn't much unlike buying a time bomb.
Question,do they make sure the system wasn't one of the banned console and/or hacked?
Yeah the only xbox i would ever buy is the new slimline because of the new anti red ring feature
I did this once when my daughter ruined my first 360. It lasted a week before the dreaded red rings showed up. You've been warned.
If it hadnt been tampered with. You couldve sent it in for nothing. Just the price to ship it. An astounding $10
I just bought an 'S' system. Never looked back.
My launch 360 still worked up until I bought a new 360s last year. Then I sold off my launch 360 on Ebay for $150. I think the RROD thing is exaggerated. I know a ton of people with Xbox 360's that work just fine.
My launch 360 works so I can vouch for that. However the thermal paste was replaced with Ic Diamond and the system is getting the efficient cooling it so requires. The chances of my 360 getting the RRoD are much less likely, otherwise it would've gotten it by now. I did the same repair on all my PS3s as well. YLOD begone!
It's gonna shine 3 awesome lights!
I wouldnt get near a used xbox 360 with my money
Someone took a broken condom, mended it and is now trying to sell it. Caveat emptor, buyer beware.
My Xbox is showing it's age. the fps are dropping at non-playable levels in games like GTA and RDR. Maybe it's the dust.
Or quite possibly the thermal paste being shot.
Thats just the game it has nothing to due with the age of your xbox 360 at least regarding the subject of frames for second ingame.You problably have a dvd drive that is very used and the laser lens need to be replaced.What you can get from that is in game slowdowns,breaks and freezes.Its very easy to switch lens,and lens are very price cheap.
wow this really is a gamble hahaha
People are forgetting that this machines are refurbish indeed but they still have warrant from the shop and from M$.Idont know how the warranty works in US but in my country i buy a refurbish 360 from Game and i have 2 years warrant.One year in store warrant and after that i to sent directly to M$ along with the buying ticket i got from Game at brought.But im talking about refurbish 360 sent by M$ to the Game store for sell.Im not talking about retailer fixes them and them sell them was refurbish.
Not from MS the warranty is non-transferable.
If I want to throw $100 down the drain, I can go buy a PSP.
No, no. That'd be a PSP GO.
i would buy it buy a cooling fan and a big jump drive copy games to the hdd and jump drive and play only 360 exclusives on it gears 3 is out soon and i didnt get to play halo reach so yeah
It is a gamble...if it hasn't been tampered with then you can trade it in for a new free one if it gets the rrod.
