Xbox 360 Console - Refurbished @ Gamestop UK - £36.00

[3 Month Guarantee]

Seems a decent deal from a reputable supplier. Haven't had any issues with gamestop personally, although i know some have. Sure some of these old 360's arent the most reliable but the 60gb models should be ones from later on, and at £36 it should be worth a punt if you're in the market for a cheap console.

You know of a website that already sells JTAG'd 360s?

It's a fantastic price, but with only a 3 month guarantee, I'd recommend paying a bit more at somewhere like CeX which offers 24 months.

Maybe so but I'd say its more likely to go wrong in the first place with CeX.

No. What is it?

Cant go wrong at that price, heat op

I wonder what happened to all those Red ringed 360's? Had 3 & gave up & bought a slim version its been ok ever since.

I used to have a original type white 360 (was the HDD less core model) between about 2007 and 2011. To be fair it never had any kind of failure at all, despite the early ones being known to rrod.

However, the noise was appalling on it both fan and drive noise, was just tolerable in games but made TV/movie watching impossible.

Replaced it with the black slim model in 2011, which I still have, massively better machine, virtually silent by comparison.

Not sure if these are as bad for noise but these days I'd always recommend the slim version, doubt it would be that much more either...

is this the model that has the red light of dead problem? And does it have original xbox backward compatibility?
Edited by: "UberPark" 5th Mar 2016

odd, OH has had original from day one, never had an issue, not any louder than my newer slim version.. luck I suppose. great price, just heavily play it within the 30 day I'm sure by then anything lingering would appear

You'll be getting Xbox One refurbs at this sort of dough if you're willing to wait a couple of months after all the announcements Spencer made this week (_;)

Tempted! But have a ps3 I rarely play

I wouldnt.

It looks like its an original pre-arcade model - these ones I had three fail and replaced.

If it was an arcade or later (has white drawer and 4gb internal memory) then I'd recommend it.

ALL 360s have backwards compat. because it's a software not hardware thing (on a limited range of titles with mixed results if we're honest)

In theory, all 360s can RROD too - the worst offenders are the earlier designs pre 'Jasper' chipset - this page explains how to tell if you have it

If it doesn't die in 30 days it's probably AOK tho - just give it a good workout ;0

Only slims have 4gb internal storage. Some of the later phats did have 256mb or 512mb internal storage.
As these 360s come with a 60gb hard drive they should be from mid-2008 or later, as that's when those were introduced - unless they're pairing up older consoles with 60gb hard drives, which is possible.

And they'll swap it straight out for another one.

A real shame this is white. Never had an Xbox so would have loved to have tried one out but hate white consoles!

Found it cheaper

great price

Had two original Elite 360's both RROD and replaced with slims that are still working.

My advice spend a bit more and buy a slim.

lol massive fail

wish they did some deals like this for ps3 slim

Best console for last gen.

Dashboard, games, hardware, party chat

Very expensive shouldn't be more than £20, these will RROD.

Straight over all of their heads.

knowyourmeme.com/mem…360

announcements referred to above are... vg247.com/201…ir/

not very clear yet...seems to be two things

xbox one and pcs running win 10 are now (or will be) cross compatible. looks like an xbox environment like stram will function in win10 to maintain your library.not for some titles...ALL xboxone titles will be win 10 compatible(and vice versa presumably)

the ropey bit is his announcement that xbox will stop getting 'big bang' upgrades every 6/7 years....from now on updated versions will come out every year or two without a big rebrand...he seems to compare it to the iphone hardware cycle. also they will encourage 'upgrade add ons' a bit like n64 ram pack type upgrades.

the worry is that that will fragment the xbox market the same way the pc market is fragmented.... your 2 year old xbox might only be able to run 75% of new titles and run thise slower/lower framerate than a 'new' xbox one. from m$ point of view they can scam gamers into buying a new pc or at least a graphics card every two years but they never made money out of that... they have been itching to get their hands on that hardware cash...

The problem was this started out as being the lowest powered console generation ever (to achieve post recession pricing and deal with the shrinking hard core gaming market). Gone the days where a new Xbox or PlayStation were the most powerful gaming machines on earth at launch with a price tag to match. Now the PS4 and XBONE are the same power as a mid range PC. This means that decade long lifecycles are no longer possible and that's why they are thinking about constant refreshes and add on units. I think the idea that Xbox games can play on Windows 10 is a good idea as there are lots of titles I want to play without having to buy their console but as you touched upon it's going to become very muddy as to what will work on which system and out will come the flash from the past 'requires expansion pak' style stickers! As you said in the old days they got none of the sweet PC hardware upgrade cash and by PC-fying the Xbox they can do that.

Regarding this deal I think £36 is slightly too high, under £20 would be about right considering they are the older 360's. Amazon had a black friday lightning deal years ago for brand new 360's for £50!

Erm well the gaming media has been full of them all week long, seeing the Xbox event for the press was last week and they were all under ermbargo not to report it till this week the omens weren't great were they (_;)

I can only assume you don't follow gaming related news at all right?

Well ever since what I personally have dubbed 'quantumbreakgate' went on between Spencer and the crapgamer on twitter the whole Xbox division has been on the defensive and been spinning alll sorts like would make Alastair Campbell proud.

Just google it yourself but more Xbox exclusives have been rvealed to be going over to PC, including a free version Forza and Spencer was also talking about hardware add ons for the Xbone a la PC gaming.

Bottom line they've clearly already given up on this generation because the PS4 is so far ahead and no I'm not a Sony fan baby as I'm someone who owns all three current gen consoles.

Surely it's not really a meme if nobody's heard of it, though? Even the moderators on that page haven't validated that submission.
