    Went to gamestop, they had refurbished for $140. I almost bought one but it just seemed too expensive. Is there somewhere else I could get an xbox super cheap aside from ebay or amaon??

    It's really not that much. If you get it off craigslist you rusk someone selling you one with the ring of death. I would buy new and get one with a hardrive if you plan to go online or download games.

    Get the one at gamestop. It's fair price and you know it will work. Prices will drop some more cuz the new xbox and ps are coming out next Christmas.

    The gamestop price seems high so it must be the most memory. Get it

    I think xbox is better unless he his going to use it for blu-ray movies. That case get the ps3. It's still one of the best blu-ray players on the market.

    Walmart has an Xbox, plus a 3 month online sub to Xbox live for $179, plus free shipping. Don't buy a used one :nono:

    I don't want to play online or anything - I just want to play games by myself. I've never played Halo or anything, so I'm way behind the times

    Yeah, besides what Mario said mentioning the red rings, if the unit has been perma-banned from xbox live because the previous owner modded it to play pirated games, you'll be out of luck trying to access the best reason to own it, even if they removed the mods and you call Microsoft. Try to get the black one as well, black one has wireless N built in, instead of having to buy an add on adapter.

    Thanks for all the advice everyone, very helpful. I have a Wii right now and it's boring as shit, only good game is Mario Bros. I have CAll of Duty 3 and the controls are super shitty, unplayable
