    A Little Advice Please From All You Kind Hukd'ers Who Know About 360's

    Hello everyone =)

    my son has asked Santa for an Xbox 360, he's only 6 but loves playing on his friends when we visit them, we would prefer it modded really but i have no idea what im looking for or how much i should be paying?? Any advise would be greatly appreciated and rep will be left.

    Many thanks,
    Louise. x

    could you not just buy a second hand one or even the arcade one to see if he likes it as much when he actually has one of his own as you know how sometimes its a phase and it would save you alot of money

    theres always plenty of deals on here, depends on what u want to get him. If you want it modded you may want to get a cheap or second hand one

    Get him a Nintendo DS, more games for the kids on that

    I bought - sorry santa brought - an xbox to my son three years ago (he is ten now) well its been best present as he uses it all the time - prob most days. Also nearer christmas u are going to get fantastic deals too as everyone wants your dosh!

    I would buy a new one so its got a warranty

    Remember if you get the 360 modded and it gets the rrod it voids the warranty.So you might be better off buying a second hand one.Try Game for refurbished ones.

    Yes your right a 2nd hand one would probably be best for now, he always plays on my step brother, iv even bought him a couple of games for it because my little bro didnt really have any suitable for a 6 yr old :roll: its all hes asked for so id like to get him it, its his birthday a week before christmas too so i dont mind getting him this (aswell as the puppy :oops: ) :-D

    another thing i do when the boys(i have 3) want something big or expensive like this and i did get their xbox this way also is to go through argos(plus quidco) and i took it over the interest free period and set up a standing order for say it was 15 a week to pay it off and that way i never noticed it! it did make it easier and more affordable

    Mmmmm il have a look into those :thumbsup: Thank you. x

    if you are going to get him a modded one, make sure it has the lastest Iextreme firmware, get it modded through somebody who knows how to do it properly Also if you are getting a modded one, make sure you have a dual layer DVD writer drive on your pc/laptop or buy an external one, and use torrents to get games cheap lol

    If you download 5-6 games the amount you saved is pretty much the same price as buying another console.

    My 360 was manufactured in 2006 and is still going so not all of them get the rrod

    I've known of a few cases of people sending modded 360s back to MS for repair and having no problems with them. I wouldn't however rely on this but it's worth a chance in the event of a RROD modded xbox.

    It's true, although you're unlikely to get the same console back so you'll need to get it remodded.

    Make sure whoever mods it leaves the warranty stickers on.

    Just PM'ed you about a guy who can do your Xbox for you.

    (No, it's not me! :w00t:)

    Yes this can be done if the modder heats the foil sticker off before they mod and sticks it back on after.This is tricky but can be done if it is FOIL.Some are now like a paper sticker.
