Today my 4th Xbox 360 has gone tits up! Wont read any dvds/games and as out of the warranty microsoft wanna charge £65 to repair. So far have had 2 break with the red lights and this is the second where the drive has stopped working.
Was wondering if paying them to repair would be the best option or if buying a new console would work out cheaper if I sell the extras ie hard drive, power brick, cable, old console as spares/repairs,game/s & pad?
Part of the reason im leaning towards getting a new console is that if/when it goes wrong again I can just go in the shop and swap it over rather than sending back off to microsoft to wait a month for the repaired console to come back.
Lastly whats the cheapest price for a new console (dont care about accesories/hdd etc)
Any suggestions much appreciated
