My old XBOX 360 had a malfunctioning Optical Drive (Disk tray), and I didn't want to pay someone to fix it or have to pay an arm and a leg for a new XBOX, so I just bought the Core System. I have no problems with it. Everything works just fine. All I had to do was transfer my Hard Drive and plug in the cords/cables, and after getting my internet connection set up, I was back online playing with my friends.
Seriously, I only paid $30 for a replacement. Microsoft wanted to charge me over $100 for a replacement. I got a good deal.
firstly, I would have given the 360 pro a 5 star rating had the new 360 slim recently not come out (in effect the 360 slim is the console we should have had all along). Microsoft are a huge company we all know that, and they entered the fray of videogaming with the first xbox, then continued with the 360. The games on the 360, just like any console, are a mix of good and not so good, but there is a MUCH higher percentage of extremely good games on the 360 than ANY other console. It did not take as long to come to terms with programming as the ps3, and although the ps3 does have a built in bluray, sonys live service doesnt even come close............and lets not forget that many movies streamed on the 360's live service through netflix are now full HD. The recent inclusion of kinect has kept the 360 fresh and up to the mark on the latest technology. For my money..........this is the greatest console ever made. Bar none.
xbox 360 dont really play much video games now that im older i just buy them to fix them up and sell to friends and family cheaper than the stores do
The product I bought works fine, and was accurate to the description. It works, and that's the main point of the purchase. The game selection wasn't very family friendly, but that was easily fixed with a trip to GameStop, so nothing to complain about there.
The console does have problems booting up occasionally, however, but I was well aware of that beforehand, so there were no surprises involved.
Overall, one of my better purchases of the year.
Wow love it when it works, but seems like there's a lot of broken xbox 360's out there with Red Ring of Death problems. Seems like Microsoft screwed up on a whole bunch of these game machines. Be careful and read sellers info completely. Make sure your working with a good seller, because you have a great chance of having to return the xbox due to RROD. Good luck.
The system's great, the graphics and game play is awesome. I haven't played much of any other systems so i can't really compare but so far i like was i have.
Great piece of equipment, mine is the arcade, it does work the fan heavy when playing games for more than 3 hours but cools down after that. mine was refurbished, so it has to be set on its side so that the fan doesn't have to work hard (minor problem really)
Though I would recommend buying the pro and higher just to avoid the fan overworking itself. But the arcade is still great for light to moderate gamer's and video streamers.
I got it, but i think mine was different, i got a kinda chewed up wireless controller, just on the right stick but it still works, didn't get a 20GB hard drive of course it never said it had one, so no big deal bought one from amazon for like 20 bucks, it didn't come with soul calibur 4, but i got FIFA 2009, which im gonna sell, and Assassin's Creed, which I also have on PC but it's playable on the 360, it also had an update from 2009 so i had to download the update to a CD and update it that way. After I updated it i borrowed a flash drive to use as a temporary hard drive, all cables were included, it came with 2 wireless controllers which is taking me some time to get used to, and the xbox works like a charm, sure it looks clearly used like some dirt and such but it's really no big deal, I love it and I hope others will too, I never realized how behind the times i was, and this is a good system for the money!
Very nice gaming system , its perfect but the one i bought on ebay was 0gb i had to buy a hard drive but the system is worth the money and is a very good gaming system
The xbox 360 console is a nice gaming console. While not as powerful or reliable as the PS3, it is a great deal cheaper and easier to repair.
