    How Much would I get for my Xbox 360 with nice BenQ drive?

    Contents of the package:

    Xbox 360 Arcade Console (HDMI and BenQ ;-) moddable drive)
    Power Pack
    Wireless Controller
    Race Driver GRID
    Dirt
    GRAW 2
    The Darkness
    Virtua Tennis
    Battlefield 2 Modern Combat
    FIfa 09
    Halo 3

    Only things the console doesn't come with is an AV/HDMI cable (can be bought for a few quid) and Memory (it maybe eligible for the MS freebie)

    Forgot to say its still in 1st year warranty/not registered and I have the receipt.

    Was hoping for more than that, I can get about £70-£90 for just the games

    But the Asda deal is a 99% chance of a Liteon drive, which is expensive and a pain to upgrade :thumbsup:

    So this drive can be modded, right?

    does 'upgrade' translate as 'modding' in your lingo? and who are you calling a tool? :whistling:

    explain what upgrade means please and i'm refering to modded consoles and lets face it the majority of people that do mod their console is for the sole purpose of playing games that they have not paid for ...... ever wondered why games cost so much ?

    Well, that's one view! :w00t:

    The console without the games is worth about £100-£105 to the right person

    But lets face it; Anyone who buys this specifically because its a Benq, isn't going to want any original games

    I'd split it personally, games are worth £50-£60 easy

    I was just about to type this. £100 for console and games listed separately - prob two bundles on ebay rather than here for best price.:thumbsup:

    Was thinking about moving to the dark side, but didn't want to pay too much towards the PS3.

    Might have to stick with it.

    Would it make any difference to the price if it came pre-flashed?

    To some people it would yeah (those people who don't realise how easy it is to do yourself)

    On Ebay they're definately clamping down on listings referring to "backups" in any way

    You not keeping your 360 - you still doing the fifa league?

    Probably wouldn't add any more than you'd pay to have it done - unless you can do it yourself or know someone local who can of course... otherwise it's postage costs both ways plus a fee to the modder...

    by dark side were you referring to ps3?

    I would keep it, falling prices with the 360 now means less resale value (you have come this far....stick with it) Now the prices of the 360 have fallen, I doubt we will see any further drops for a while from Microsoft, meaning only one other thing........

    Sony....their prices will have to drop soon to compete, few exclusives, more pricey, little advertising....somethings going to have to give soon.

    Ask yourself this...is this the right time to consider a PS3?

    From my own gaming perspective point I say no myself, from a price point I also say no.

    Even if you did decide a few months down the line from now to move to the dark side, with Microsofts prices now firmly set, other than the price of the games, the console price I doubt you would see depreciate on the second hand market, and the chances are the PS3 will be cheaper.

    I have worked it out. I can get £71 cash in hand for the games or £103 trade in.

    How much would I get for trading in the 360, any ideas?

    Let me know if you decide to sell.....
