    Thinking about buying another 360, what should I do?

    So I'm about to sell my banned elite. I like the look of the elite A LOT more than the white, but I don't think it's worth an extra $100 to me right now.

    I'm thinking about picking up another 360. Black Friday has some decent deals, but nothing too crazy IMO. Should I just get an Arcade and use the hard drive from my elite? Should I go on eBay and buy just the console itself? That's kind of risky because it will either be used or refurbished, and I'll never know what it went through. :hs:

    What's banned crew doing? :o

    Had one since launch day. :big grin:

    Now that I think about it, there's really no reason for me to have a 360. Only exclusive I care about is Forza 3. :hs:

    I would just keep your banned box and buy a new arcade. Unless you plan to go completely legit. If you are planning to mod the new one, prepare to be banned again. Even if they do come out with a new firmware its only a matter of time before they figure out how to ban it.

    Well if you can sell your banned box for almost the cost of an arcade its not a bad idea to mod it again when the new firmware is out. Just keep buying and selling everytime they ban you:bigthumb:

    Im guessing by this time next year 360s are even more dirt cheap.

    Just sold the elite for $100. :hsd: I smashed my other one out of frustration, so I'm 360less right now.

    Honestly, are there any 360 games not coming out on PC that you want to play? If not, why bother getting a new one?

    I don't see why people would :dunno: It's easy to hook up a computer to a big screen TV & with a wireless KB/M set up, you can be comfy on the couch, plus better control, better looks, no RROD, more function that just multimedia. Hell, you could even get a 360 controller for the PC, and then in that case, what's the difference?
