My beloved 360 recently got banned from xbox live. Was looking to buy a used one, unbanned of course, nice and cheap without hardrive, gamepad, wires etc... Would also like it to have HDMI connectivity although if cheap enough would probably reconsider.

Thanks in advance ( rep will be given to all who respond [appropriately]) and the flashed xbox police, leave your comments elsewhere please

I suppose the cheapest place would be the internets friend. EBAY - Maybe look into your local CEX or Game station, they might have a bargain offer around if your lucky.

Besides that buy a refurb console?

Thanks for the advice (rep left), looked on ebay seen some ok deals, cex were ridicolously overpriced on some xbox's, a premium excedding RRP new for an unboxed one, others were ok. Just looking for a bargain really, wondering if anyone knew anyone/anywhere to find it.

It means your are banned from the 'online' aspect of all games. You can no longer access xbox live, Xbox relies on live for game updates and many other things.

A console without an online section isnt good enought for the modern world - May aswell get your SEGA Megadrive back.

basically what 'bp' said, stops you going online on xbox, talking to friends, playing multilayer and get updates and add-ons for games, which without it really limits gaming experience and fun :-(

DO NOT buy a used console :) You know why! LOL
Best deal at the moment is the amazon elite deal
as you can sell all the games that come with it etc..

How is that a bonus?
You´ll only get banned again if you take it on LIVE!

It's not a gurantee you'll get banned and I planned to "tamper" with it anyway, just with new firmware.

Yeah? Do you know anyone who hasn´t been banned yet?
They´re just goin down the list and will ban the (very) few people that are left too.
I´m just tryin to help you.
You should buy a new one and then maybe flash it with the new firmware once it´s out
and confirmed to be ok.
Before that it´s just plain dumb to take a modded 360 on LIVE.

I know and thanks :thumbsup: i'm quite new to this, trouble is I need 2 and buying new is an expensive prospect. It's unlikely someone would sell a flashed xbox without stating it was flashed, I might be wrong, but couldn't I just put a copied disk in and see if it was modified ? If it was return it on the grounds that it wasn't advertised properely.

People can put it back to original firmware (works with most anyway but can´t be done with lite-on drives)
before selling and you´ll never know it´s been modded until
you get banned ;-)

You obviously wanna get the best deal possible and that´s not a used console as you
NEVER know what the previous owner has done with it.
This is not just about it maybe being modded...don´t forget about the 3 RLOD and E74, disc drive failure cuz it´s an old drive maybe etc etc.

Ok I planned to get the HDMI version, I believe they're all lite-ons so should be ok

Nope.
HDMI consoles have been available for quite some time before liteon drives appeared in 360s.
And don´t forget about the other things I mentioned in my last post (I edited it just as you replied)

Oh ok I will only consider lite-ons then I guese. Thanks for the advice otherwise I would have been none the wiser :thumbsup:

LOL yeah.
I´m sure you´ll still buy a used one but I just had to tell you it´s not a good move
:)
Good luck with it!

Honest? Maybe yes, maybe no.
Like I said, you never know how the previous owner has treated the console.
I just find it better to buy a new one,then you know what you´ve got.
If you get a used one you could get banned or it could break down blablabla
and you´ll have to buy another one.
Costs you more in the end than buying a new one in the first place.

If you buy a nice bundle and sell all the bits and games that come with it
and sell the banned console too, the new console won´t cost you ANYTHING in the end.

Not too sure about the 0 pounds quite a bit though off though I suppose with the HDD, wires, games etc...

We did it and we even made a few pounds!

Believe me it´s true

Amazon elite bundle´s best for this.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html/ref=amb_link_82960773_1?ie=UTF8&docId=1000095443&pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=special-offers-2&pf_rd_r=0XTAYYVWFKEGB9R73TJF&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_p=474904133&pf_rd_i=B002NV87OU

How much it costs you in the end all depends too obviously on the type of console you have now
as a banned elite will sell for more than a banned arcade etc...

Premium 60GB banned. What deal is it im looking at ? The 250GB super elite ?
#28
Have to agree with TanyaSpace on this one.
Best thing to do is buy the Amazon deal - sell the games to CEX.
I done this on a separate Amazon deal about 2 weeks ago and knocked £85 of the £199 price tag.
If you factor the sale of your banned Xbox into the bargain then your quids in for an upgrade.
THIS is the best way to upgrade in the long run. And, btw, the Xbox360's from Amazon are the new jasper units.
banned#29
are the jasper units flashable ?

depends what drive you have. Latest liteons are not yet. Pre August 2009 Drives are all flashable. But wait for new Iextreme LT
