Default Buying used Xbox360

I have been itching for another Xbox360 for a little while, and I am thinking about getting one. There are a ton of used ones on C-list for about $120 and I'm thinking about picking one of those up. If I were to buy one used, and I get the RROD, would I still be covered by M$? Should I just grab a new Arcade for $199?

Sent you a PM but figured I'd post it here anyway...

I just got one at Game stop in K-zoo. Refurbished factory unit in box with 2 controllers. 1 yr full manufactures warranty, 3 yr red ring warranty. $199. Thing about it is it has a smaller memory, 20gig. Which is still more then enough unless you plan on downloading all sorts of demos. Mine with all the factory crap still in it plus my netflix movie streaming program has 12 gigs left on it.

so, the $159 one was refurb'd by Gamestop, and the $199 was refurb'd by M$. I think I'll go with the M$ one w/ a HDD and an extra controller for $50 more.

the red ring of death is fairly simple to fix IF you do happen to get it. I still have mine in pieces waiting to fix it lol.

My roommates Elite got the RROD so he basically tossed it and went out and bought another one. For $15.00, 2 hours of my time and some research on youtube, I got a free 360.


It hasn't had a problem since I fixed it. I don't know if I'd recommend buying a broken one and fixing it, but it's always an option.

I ended up just going to Target and getting an Arcade. The guy at Gamestop was a giant douchebag, and I just couldnt give him my money.

Anyways, I bought Halo ODST, so if anyone wants to link up, my gamertag is FATF3ND3R

Did you have one and it broke? Mike had one fixed for like 60 bucks after he had gone out and gotten a new one. He is not interested in selling either one though because apparently he needs them both even though he has no time to play them.

I had one several years ago, and I sold it because my grades went through the floor, because rather than go to class, I would stay home and play halo and drink beer. I realized that I was spending more time drunk off my ass playing halo than I was being a productive member of society, so I sold it. Ive curbed my drinking habit, so its time for more halo.

I know you get all the maps, but it doesn't let you play anything on the extra disc does it?

The extra disc is Halo 3 multiplayer. As in, Halo 3 without campaign.

You can play online with it just like normal, has all of the extra maps + 3 new ones

FF if i was you i would just go out and buy the new arcade that way you know your less likly to get the rrod. And on the other note you can register it and send it in if it does happen, when getting a used xbox and its already registered you have to go through the hassel of contacting the seller that you had bought it from to get the information needed to complete the transaction. I had it happen to me once bought used and got rrod and it was a pain in the butt, But good luck with your find hope it works out for ya.
