    Lol didn't even bother looking at price or console first thing I saw black ops 2 in my mind first thing I thought it became backward compatible with Xbox one :(

    Not a bad deal though :)

    If you think about it, this is a great deal. The 500gb hdd is worth a bit as is the controller…. and sell the two games…

      the problem is microsoft have effectively made 360 ownership redundant by making BC widespread and in many cases, BETTER than on the real 360

      also expect 360 development to tail off, if it hasnt already stopped

      also then, even if there is a 360 version why play it when a Xbox One or PS4 version exists

      there's a reason these are $99 and people arent snapping them up even though there's a lot of actual hardware that you get

    It's worth it if you missed the entire last generation of consoles and are prepared to install the xkey.

    I've done similar with the 3ds instead of getting a switch.

      Is there any guides about xkey? from what i can see you need extra hardware for the slim model?

    Really wish there was some ps3 deals like this but it seems they're discontinued already.

    does anyone still own a working original Xbox 360 from 2005? so many of them succumb to the RRoD, including mine. i can still remember being there on launch night way back then, the hype for that console was crazy. i'd love to track down one of the Xbox 360 Pro's, just for the nostalgia. what i wouldn't give to see that old Blade dashboard again haha

    •  

      Yup have one. Still works although I hardly turn it on these days. Have a backup slim in case it does to play my older games not yet backward compatible

      Yes, I've got an original 360, even used it last week.

    •  

      Yeah but i had it fixed not long after i picked it up. Worked fine since.

    •  

      2006.. Jeez, where does the time go. Still works but sounds like a jet engine once it warms up.

    •  

      Got one under my bed but it's RROD'd. Was thinking of buying one of those DIY repair kits on ebay for it. Maybe someday. Got a 360 Slim for my nostalgia needs, but backward compatibility has been awesome for me so don't use it much.

      This is an upgrade for me. Im still on first gen.

      Yep. Mine is still going strong. It's an outstanding console. I had the rrod but had the board changed to a jasper and never had a single hiccup. Fantastic library of games too.

    •  

      Wow I was a much younger man when I bought the original or launch
      After 4 times sending it back to Microsoft, they must have finally got it right and it's going strong, Although I haven't turned it on for a while.
      Maybe I will buy this as I have a fairly large 360 collection and never had HDMI on the original 360…
      I know my xbone has some BC but I don't like having to download the whole game on my xbone…
      Who knows, I might look back in another 12 years and want to play my games again…

    •  

      did you know that if you've got a RGH'd or JTAG'd 360, you can run the old dash on it? i tried it for a bit but too many games complained

    •  

      Launch Pro here, still going strong.

      HDMI be damned, too - It's hooked up via the official VGA cable. :P

  •  

    Yeah I still have an original 20 gig model it was sent back to fix rrod a few years back works fine and my daughter still plays it a bit.

  •  

    Damn. Would have picked this up if I didn't buy a new 360 last year for $180. Still, had a lot of fun on this console. Already got a gaming PC so my focus was on picking up games not available on the PC.

    •  

      I have 5 words for you - Bundle Stars, Indie Gala, Humble. (oops misread, though you said games for the PC - master race bias).

  •  

    Thanks, got one. Have a family member still using an original style, falcon 360 daily. Will keep as a spare when it inevitably dies.

    •  

      How dare you, I still have a working 2007 model 360, been boxmodded, painted and HDD replaceed (HDD Didn't die) that probably has 8-10k hours on it.. Still chugging along strong ^_^

      •  

        Someone stole my Elite model (which was sturdy as), I went through 3 slims after that, then took everything xbox to EB and did the biggest trade in the boy at the register had ever seen (he took a photo for his FB). It was enough for 2 3DS XL's and 2 copies each of New Leaf and Monster Hunter.

  •  

    Is this particular model compatible with the xkey?

    For those who don't want to pay the extra postage fee, just go into your local EB and ask them to order it via the free ship to home method. They place the order for you via their system and it gets shipped from the warehouse to your door free of charge. Some stores advertise it and some don't but they all offer it. Great for larger items like this or anything that you don't want to pay postage on that your local store hasn't got in stock.

      You haven't seen my kid on an Xbox 360.

        • -3 votes

          Since I'm not much good with a soldering iron I can't whittle up an Xbox clone. So this is more like Big Mac vs Quarter Pounder, except my kid ordered the Quarter Pounder and isn't crying and complaining.

          Eddie Murphy is funny though. And Microsoft, MacDonalds….both start with M, are American and serve you up crap that's no good for you which is nothing like the product on the Ad.

        •  

          @syousef: I was only saying don't try and give it in place of an Xbone. If they want an Xbone and you get a 360, they won't be able to play the latest games and will not be "stoked".

        •  

          @stormii:

          Really depends on the kid and why they want the XBone. If it's to play specific games with friends a 360 is going to be no use to them.

          I do not understand why having an adverse opinion needs to be "confrontational" or "unpleasant", debate is healthy, and if you are not up for the task, lurking is an option.

          Hint: The second adds nothing to the "debate" and isn't "healthy". Implying someone is obtuse does not promote conversation. Capeesh?

          You fail to present a consistent point of view. Perhaps if you can't do that it is you that should lurk.

        My kids love the 360. They only playing motocross and racing games mostly. They dont care about the graphics. The only fighting is done over who gets the 360 or the ps3.

          We have two 360's which have become dedicated Minecraft and Terraria machines. I wish the kids would go for a racing game once in a while.

      Unless Black Ops II becomes backward compatible in the next month or so, don't hold your breath for anything over $20. And I think that's pushing it.

      Pretty slow appreciation.

    •  

      Interesting idea, but don't forget to factor the future value of money into your calculations.

      If you think in 20 years this virgin Xbox 360 will be worth more than what you'd get if you put your money into another investment, then go for it. I'd guess that a mint condition original is more likely to be a collectors item.

      Also, don't do it if you can pay off your mortgage instead.

      Xbox hardware isn't really a good investment when it's not a LE console

    •  

      There is a good reason a N64 is valuable, but you can get a PS1 for $20. You invest in quality products. N64's don't fail often (if at all), xboxes have the fabled RROD, therefore, not only will you need to wait 20 years, but it may not be worth bubcus, if you going to get an old xbox for a collection, I would go with the Elite or another solid build.

    This is a great deal for those who are yet to own a console like this.
    Not only because of the actual price for a new unit + 2 games, but because this will de-value the current ebay/gumtree advertisements for these consoles.
    Sucks if you are trying to sell your 360 as it's just taken ~40% off an acceptable price but if you're looking for a cheap console for a bit of fun, now is a good time.

    • +2 votes

      Agreed.

      I recently bought my first PS3 off gumtree for my son as he was running out of games on the PS2 (yes that's right). Kids that age don't care about graphics, it's all gameplay. I paid $120 for the console that's 5+ years old, 15 odd games and two original sixaxis controllers. Plus it came with a game I have been waiting to play for the past 7 years.

      I've never had an xbox but it seems games are slightly cheaper than the ps variants, second hand at least. I was considering this deal in the morning but I think I'll pass.

      •  

        As mentioned, the de-valuing this will bring to the current console second hand market is huge.
        Your typical xbox 360 with 10+ games second hand will fetch rock bottom prices on gumtree/ebay and move even further away from PS3.
        Perfect time if you've got 8-12yo kids who as you said are all about gameplay and fun (kitect etc) rather than the latest graphics.

        •  

          It is a perfect "grandparent" buy, just to have a console for the grandkiddies, having a console as opposed to no console is always good.

    Great deal. My original red dot of death 4weeks ago and now i can watch Sony movies again.

  •  

    I just want this so when my current 360 dies I can still play backwards compatible KOTOR. Yes I still own it on PC and tablet as well but I do enjoy the console version as well.
    Wonder if xbone might be backwards backwards compatible one day?

  •  

    Looks like a possible quantity error with this. Appears to be unlimited quantity with 2k+ clicks and still available. It's possible come Monday that most of the orders will be cancelled.

    •  

      I find it funny when shopify handles stock better than techy type company like EB.

  •  

    Picked one up as my current 360 feels like its near death. Freezes on occasion and im sure it will only get worse.

    Got too many games that arent BC yet to give up my 360 entirely.

    If you're keen for the console itself and not too fussed about whether you get a game or not, they have another Xbox 360 E + 500GB hard drive + Forza Horizon 2 for $99.

    Thanks OP for posting as I just got shipping confirmation via email. Being a PlayStation man thought it a cheap way to get to play both series of Halo and Gears of War.

    Thanks for sharing, I want a PS3 more thou because PS4 doesn't do backward compatibility!
