Default Xbox 360 pro

I was offered a trade for one of my paintball markers for a "month old" xbox 360 pro and dont know much about them. The gun was listed for $200, and I know the 360's sell for more than that.


What are the chances of this thing being f-ed up? Do the new consoles still get the red ring o' death? Are the warranties transferrable?

plug it in before you get it if the center ring glows green your good, also look for burn marks on the back thats a good sign of overheating

All the new xboxes have a 3 year red ring warranty.

x2.

Try to get the original sales receipt. And yes, the "new" ones still get RROD. My current 360 is only 5 months old (bought brand new) just got red light 4 days ago.. I just got my package from Microsoft to ship it back yesterday.

EDIT: Is it JUST a 360 he's trading you? If I were you, I'd want 2 wireless controllers, recharge kits, and a couple current games for being a $200 "value". 360s with tons of games and a few controllers can be had for under 200.

Demand more shit.

Good luck. I finally got a good one from them about a month ago after sending a couple different ones back and forth. Now I have to call them (the worst part of it!) and get them to switch the video/game rights over to the new serial number.

Why so much trouble? When I sent mine in, I received a brand new one two weeks later. Why do you have to switch the game rights over, couldn't you have just kept your hard drive?

You can get a whole lot more for $200 worth of Xbox 360. Granted finding another person wanting to trade for your paintball gun, could be difficult. However selling the gun and getting cash, would give you much more in a Xbox 360 bundle, if that's what you wanted. Here are some examples.

I had mine for @ 2 years. It was actually a partial RROD/video error. I had never had a problem with my original one until that. They ended up sending me a refurb for that one. That POS scratched a game and always gave disc-read errors. I sent it back. They claimed it to be fixed but it wasn't. I sent that one back (I had to be quite rude this time around) with a nice note in it saying "Don't bother sending me one if its going to be this $%&ing peice of shit." I got a new one finally.

They have a rights thing attached to your serial number if you DL videos from Live. I had a couple music videos on the HD and they wouldn't play on the new one. I called them and they said that the stuff had to be transferred to the new serial number. Well, it already did it to the 2nd unit. They claim to only allow it to be changed once a year so now I have to call and bitch again. It wouldn't be bad but I cannot understand them half the time.

that shit is linked to your account bro, re-download it. you'll be fine.

i never had any issues with warrenty work, the GPU took a shit on my 360, i filled out the forms on line, they sent me a box, about 3 weeks later i recieved my xbox, fixed, and a one month free for XBL gold.

great customer service. RROD does have a 3 year warrenty, if your shit does something else past warrenty but within 3 years, force it into RROD by overheating it.

I have tried DLing it again. I got the music videos I had. I have bought a couple newer NatGeo videos. It took the credits but gives me this BS error number when I try to get them.

IMO my gun isnt worth $200. It may have been a few years ago, but the market is just too flooded with paintball crap now. $200 was to be a starting point for the asshole low ballers that offer you 1/2 of what you ask. Id be happy to get $150 out of it. If this guy wants to give me a xbox pro starter kit, im ok with it. Ive actually wanted one for a while but didnt feel like spending a ton of cash on something Id probably get bored with after a couple months.

I bought a PS2 when they first came out and played the thing almost daily. But I think I can count on my hands how many times Ive played a game on it in the past two or three years. I just use it as a DVD player now. You can only play GTA so many times.
