Should I Buy This 360?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Should I Buy This 360?

Here's where my story starts. I RROD'd my modded 360 while I was playing Lost Odyssey for the first time through.

After that, I went out and bought an Arcade 360 and have kept it to this day. It is still under warranty and has no problems whatsoever. However, I am too chicken shit to mod it again.

I have found a guy who lives about a 20 minute drive away from me. He is selling a modded Halo 3 360 (which he claims has never had problems whatsoever) with a few games and no controller for $100. The only downside is that it is missing the flap for USB connections according to him. Should I get it? Would you trust the guy? The controller thing isn't an issue because I already have two. He says he's willing to come to Best Buy with me and pretend like it's broken, just so that I can see that it works when they test it out.

Yes yes I fully forgot to mention this in my OP. It is one of the consoles which is banned from Live. But that's not really an issue with me cause I don't even have a gold account for my current 360, not to mention I play on PSN.

That also means you can't use the HDD.



"Well certainly with the Xbox 360, we had some challenges at the launch. Once we identified that we took control of it. We wanted to do it right by our customers. Our customers are very important to us." -Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb (10/2013). Note: RRoD was fixed with the Jasper-revision 3 years after the launch of 360
