Just in time for the holidays, Best Buy has a hell of deal on Xbox 360 consoles.
"Give one to that douche Wii fanboy that you know so they can have some good games to play this holiday season." It's funny because the 360 doesn't even have any games worth playing this holiday season. The only way you'll be playing games is if you get a PS3.
if u want to play games then get a ps3 i think x360 sold way less than what vgcrap or MS told us and this is why MS is basically liquidating their console how times have changed? isnt it? it seems that x360 has reached the bottom of the bottomless pit rip X360
I'd buy it and throw it in our extra room ...so when we have company stay the night they can watch DVDs on it! It does play DVDs dont it?
I've played gears and it was a nice game but not at all what I thought from all the hype talk. Outside of that.. what do I need a 360 for after playing gears on someone else's 360? Mass Effect doesn't interest me like it once did after seeing WRPG games like Demon Souls & Brink. Fable is not at all my type of game, Forza.. ok, I'll just leave this one be, Viva Pinata is way too kiddy for me, Banjo Kazooie is not remotely interesting to me (see Viva Pinata) so... what? Splinter Cell and Mass Effect are timed exclusives and will be on the PS3 later next year so I can decide to either rent them or forget about them if there are exclusives I haven't gotten round to yet.. soooo, why would need to clog up my home with stuff I already know is going to crap out on me. If Mikkey Ds is giving away a 360 with the order of a happy meal then I'd consider it but still... what the hell would I do with it?
i totally agree. this is really telling
Desperation for...Best Buy?
They aren't even worth 100 bucks. I dont know how MS has been getting away with charging so much for the 360? It doesn't even have an HD player.
or a fastforward/rewind button for the music player. lol
It's now the price of a 10 year old console. Congrats MS, you FAIL.
read the artical morons......its a refurbished 20gb xbox console
So a former red ringed 20gb 360 that has a 99.9% chance of dieing. Well, some kid with moron parents is gonna have a bad christmas.
thats bad the 20gb have way more chances on getting messed up i should know but if they put the lastest motherboard then its a deal.
itz a refurbished 20gb console!!!!!
MS gets no money from these sales. They are used consoles that bestbuy Are tired of having sitting around so they sell them dirt cheap to clear room 4 the holidays
"Perfect time for the holidays, Best Buy is selling Xbox 360s for less than a $100! Ok it's a refurbished unit and it doesn't have the HDMI port that new 360s have, but come on, it's less than a $100." Okay; so what if the Console got banned from Live? Great deal, eh?
But for who ever got it, it was a nice deal for a first gen refurbished 360. This was Bestbuy who did the price not MS so I dont want to see a million comments saying how "MS is so sad for selling it this low" it was Bestbuy not MS who did this deal.
Well, I'm indeed not sure that MS estimates their console the same value as a Space Invaders Retro bag for 100$: http://www.amazon.com/20000...
$49.99 is the right price for a 360. for that price, i think people MIGHT buy one. i repeat, MIGHT.
Nah. At $299, PS3 is still a better value.
You are taking a hell of a risk getting a refurb 360. Will the warranty that M$ have work with these?
I think an instore warranty will work, so in a worse case scenario if you refurb fails you can get a new arcade with the Jasper chipset in it
I don't know that Best Buy will allow a warranty on these. I think they know exactly how risky a business move that would be. Heck, if you look at the article they won't even allow you to get Reward Zone points for buying one. And I would think there is no way Microsoft would provide a warranty for these either. Isn't their warranty only good for the original buyer (nontransferable)?
isn't that the same price of a dreamcast??? EDIT: yeah i bet wen the kids see the wifi adapter price and the 360 price they cross heir eyes like WTF! lol
cant see why anybody would want a referb on the most unreliable console ever known at this point in time. They're already a great price brand new...Cheaper than the non HD wii in fact
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH the wifi adapter is at the same price of the whole console HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
and to play online is half the price of the console too ;)
lol with those 100$ i can get me a new PS2 which is far more better than this POS
you get what you pay for, as most 360 fanboys say about psn
VGA looks better for me, and I heard that refurbs have everything updated apart from HDMI so it's a nice deal, what do you want for $100?
Media Markt germany sells the PS3 SLIM with 2 games for 249 euro... On amazon the PS3 slim costs 239 euro. YOu can get in germany a SLIm for a price of a PS2.
no you are wrong, there is no such deal. there was one deal with a ps3 for 239 bucks, but without games, and only for a short period of time! ppl who dont think this is a deal have no brain, period.
I wouldnt touch refurb or used 360 with a 10ft pole i was thinkin bout geting a used 360 back in august but rembered the newer models have the jasper units wich is my arcade model plus they come with a HDMI port.
timed offer for ps3. Ps2 costs 100euro. try harder lying bot.
it will last for about 6 months or less...before it fries..they probably just used a cheap fix like the x clamp type fix...delaying the inevitable burn up
They need to get rid of the old stuff to make room for the PS3 Slim.
What a huge risk. Then again, you get what you pay for. Good luck to those consumers.
who cares if it's a 20 gig console? Have any of you bothered to hook up an external hard drive? I have a 560 gig harddirve attached to mine.. But yeah, without the HDMI port, I don't find it personally appealing. But then again, I have tons of friends who play on a regular tv so it wouldn't matter to them either way.
This sounds like a waste of $100. Why would you want a worthless model that costs a fortune to upgrade and probably won't last a year?
no, don't fall for it. The old model is a piece of crap. I don't know how many time it break down on me that i end up turning it in (lucky i have the extra coverage at micro center) and got an arcade instead. Just get the new model (it is a lot more reliable) and spare yourself the anger and frustration later on. jeez, and here i thought I got a really good deal for a brand new pro x360 model at $200 back in 2007 at micro center. What a waste.
i've got an old pro and it died once, got it repaired for free since it was in warrenty. my ps3 also lasted around the same time (about 2 years) but when that broke i had to go buy a new 1... so for $100 thats a steal, and even if it does break you will be in warrenty. then wen ur warrenty runs out and u do need to buy another, all models out at the time should be much much more quality
ridiculous deal. certainly good for those that fancy owning both consoles
Those are probably the broken 360s that were replaced with BestBuys 3 year warranty and they couldn't send it back to MS.
Forget it. Even if you price a 360 at 5 dollars, i wouldn't buy it.
... and you wouldn't buy one, you would be an idiot or a PS3 fanboy, so an idiot.
Even if they'd give it away for free, i wouldn't buy it.
Thats a really good deal. I'd get it if i didnt have a 360 already. Too bad its out. I have a few friends that would have loved to get their hands on a 360 for that price
i guess bestbuy is tired of looking at that stack of unsold dvd players..
i already hv 3 360s so will wait for ps3 to come down to its real value of 59.99USD so i can use it as my footrest.
3 360s? I envy you; why do you have so many heaters? Just in time for winter.
*cough* FIRE SALE ON 360'S!!! *cough*
That's pretty good. Now if only they shave $100 off of THAT, it might be worth buying.
