    some dude from work is moving out of town and is selling his xbox 360 among other things..

    its a 120 gb hard drive 360
    2 controllers
    4 games (forza was one of them, forgot the others, but dont really care)
    he said he purchased it 8 months ago brand new

    I only intend on using it for forza (when it comes out ) because all my friends use the ps3.. he said hed sell it to me for 200 bux.. is this a good deal? to me, it seems pretty legit as it will still be under warranty

    I dont often have others over to play.. maybe once every 2-3 weeks.. and I do intend on some day purchasing forza 2 if i do not get this unit

    It should be fine really.

    MS can be pissy with their warranties, but if anything ever goes wrong with it you can always force the RROD. They'll typically replace those for up to three years.

    Buying any system used is a gamble however you're saving a significant amount off of retail.

    Arcade: $199
    120gb HD: $130+
    2nd controller: $50
    Games: ?

    You're looking at saving $180+ without even taking the games into account. There's a chance he may be trying to bone you over but even if that's the case you could get it repaired or possibly even sell off everything separately and come close to breaking even if not profit.

    Yeah thats the way I was looking at it.. I might be able to just re-sell it for the same price later down the road.. is there something I should look for on the machine or do with the machine before I buy it just to make sure?

    wow, that could be shitty

    Who even gives a fuck if it's used? It's warrantied. If not, you can fix them yourself, or find someone to do it for you for cheap. Hell, even if you have to go out and buy a new arcade because it's royally fucked, you're still ahead. Fucking controllers go for $30-$60 a pop, the 120gb hard drive is a pretty penny, the games are worth about $40, etc.

    Do it.

    check if it's a jasper (they're more resistant to RROD) and if so, go for it
