Xbox 360 20GB (Pre-owned) no HDMI - £69.99 Delivered @ Gameplay

£69.99

Found 7th May 2011
£10 more then the game deal, but comes with the 20gb hd. Comes with 12 months guarentee - IMO worth risking the ROD for cheap gaming for a year.

Possible 1.5% quidco also.

Had mine since launch. No problems ever. Even if they did have RROD at some point MS will have repaired them with the new chipset

Even preowned?

They were ALL faulty. It was a design flaw present in all revisions of the fat console (Xenon/Zephyr/Falcon/Jasper). The non HDMI units were especially prone to the problem. Even the consoles repaired by MS were fitted with the same design flawed mobos. My advice, don't touch a fat 360 unless it's the late model Falcon or Jasper. And it's best to avoid them altogether and just get a slim. £70 for a non HDMI 360 is a really bad deal.

That's physically impossible as to fit the new chipset would mean a compatible board and boards with falcon or jasper chipset have a HDMI output for video as they never made any none HDMI falcon or jasper systems. If you have had a release console till now you are very lucky as they all pretty much went wrong at some point or another and where repaired. I have 2x falcon one elite that ive had 2 years+ and its never gone wrong but i originally had a core and that had RROD twice so i sold it on and that was 2 years back and i didnt get that much then for it. You can bet your life that these at some point have been banned so theres another issue, the only reason to get one of these is in the hope its running a early dashboard so they can be Jtagged but then the 12 month warranty would be void and it would probably go wrong like my core Jtag thats now upstairs in a box.

I bet these are repaired units possibly with Xclamp fitted.

Why all the negativity, the store are giving 12 months guarutee! If it breaks within the year it will be fixed. I personally can't afford to pay twice the price for a "safer" option. £70 for a years gaming is good for me.

Why would anyone want to pay £70 for this is beyond me when the new slim black with built in wireless that is almost silent, looks good, touch sensitive buttons and i would guess more reliable now. Are you guys crazy, pay the bit extra and get the new slim. I have owned these in the past and in all honesty you cant play dvds on them couse they are so noisy they suffer from rrod as well, The new slim is lovely and almost silent.

But £150 would last you 5+ years... well, longer, depending on how long you keep it.

I had a launch 360 and it never had an issue, except it kept getting louder and louder. Lasted 4 years, then I sold it to a friend, who still hasn't had a problem with it.

On the other hand, I bought a preowned PS3. Got the YLOD within a couple of weeks (warranty sticker was still intact btw) and returned it.
I wouldn't trust a preowned console personally, especially ones with inherent problems like the RROD-prone 360's or YLOD-prone PS3 models. I'd rather pay a bit more and feel a bit more confident every time I press that power button, knowing I can keep this console for years.

Is there anything worth buying in sub £80 bracket?http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/xbox-360-console-4gb-119-99-1-99-delivery-sendit/933999 ?


Get the 250gb model for £158

If you're into console gaming, you might as well just get the pre-owned console as the OP suggested and then save the 40-80 quid (depending on how much hard drive space you want) for the upcoming Xbox 3. With Nintendo releasing a new console and software and hardware sales declining slowly, I expect the Xbox 3 to be released in 2012 or 2013 at the very latest. It's bound to be backwards compatible anyway so that'll make your Xbox 360 pretty much worthless, much like the Xbox 1 is now.

Not to mention that you'd have some pretty bad luck if it'd break exactly after the year was over.

A few options but i would go for a 4 gig slim, just find the best price. You can always add the hard drive later or pay extra and buy the 250 gig. Just think that the slim has wireless built in, how much to buy a dongle for the old xbox ?. To me this would have to be around £45 to make it a good buy especially when a new one is only just over £100. I got a 20 gig drive recently from game for £7.99 and slipped it into the case of the new slim, easy

wow your miss informed, 360s have still been selling well because of kinect so no microsoft wont be in a rush, an i certainly hope they dont rush it as the 360 still has life, quite a bit of it to be frank, and dam, it will not get released next year, i can say that without a shadow of doubt, haven't said that even if it did, games for it would be a fortune so buying a 360 would be more then worth it

agreed ive even had a later one fail.....why do you think msoft released a new slim......mainly to fix the probs and put a shiny smaller box on it....

the flaws were mainly around the heatsink working its why lose (from heat) from the chip....there are fixes online but its not worth the hassle as these often only temp fix it....as its a designed flaw

no all they do when they "fix" your console is reseat the heatsink or theyll send another console that has been fixed.......at some point your console will fail again

rumours are it wont be till 2014, realistically pc's will be so far ahead by then, so i suspect 2013 sounds more realistic
