Why are people paying so much for an Xbox 360??

In the black Friday sales the Xbox 360 250 GB with 4 games went down to £99.00; with similar deals about.. and I think that's a great price. But now they're ranging from £120 for the very basic to £300! You can get an Xbox one a lot cheaper.

Well I missed out on the Xbox 360 on the black Friday sale and I've been trying to source one for a reasonable price ever since (I'm a uni student, can't afford an Xbox one :P ). I can't understand why people are paying so much for old technology. There's been various deals where they've been £70 in store but I've not been able to find one in a store near me.. Sorry for the rant, but does anyone know where I can buy one cheap or when they will go back down in some sort of sale? Some stores have even stopped selling them.

Reply's appreciated :)

because microsoft want the xbox one to seem more attractive to buyers. price the 360 higher so that consumers will think ill spend an extra £100 and get the new gen consoles

EBay. You're buying so protected to the extreme and then some. If an Earthquake hits your house in 20 years and and subsequently scratches the controller you'd probably get a refund.

People are paying a high price for iy because its still a better system to own then xbox one.

I wouldn't want either sony or M$s new ones, with all their Internet required, massive game installs, over priced and generic pap games, would like a spare 360 tho.

I may just have the wiiu this gen, seriously thinking of just getting a PC if I want anything more then that, the other two consoles are just PCs anyway,well everything you hate aout PCs with none of the benefits of emulation, mods, playing older games and of course all the other stuff PCs can do anyway.

its like nintendo are the only ones who remember why consoles got created in the first place, pick up and play no nonsense instant gaming.
