I got it for real cheap too. $200 and i got a BRAND NEW xbox 360 premium w/ hard drive its real easy to do just gotta know what your doing

I love it! been playin Crackdown, and Full Auto today. And i got the HDTV cables to hook it up to our 32" LCD, first time experiencing HDTV and it is amazing!

Just one thing, when i'm playing games it sounds like a freaking jet taking off, its so LOUD.

Care to share on the $200 premium trick / tip ... :P


They are loud and thats why I traded it for a PS3 ..

But I will eventually get a 360 once the HDMI version is released just for the 360 only games but the PS3 will get 70% of the play.

I thought G.H was out already ?

Okay i guess

Go to ebay and search for Xbox 360 Broken, The one i bought had the "Three red lights error" that one is a good one to go with. Once you find one you like, send a message to the seller and ask what the mfr date is, if the xbox has ever been opened, and if it was ever registered with xbox.
The people who are selling them for some reason are overlooking the 1 year warranty on the xbox'*. You have to make sure that the mfr date isn't more than a year ago, and that the box itself has never been opened, and that they never registered it with xbox.
The one i got actually came with the HardDrive and all the cords, but a lot of them are just the box itself.

Once you find one you want, have them send you the serial number after you have bought it, then go to xbox.com register the xbox in your name. Wait a day or two. Then call xbox 1-800-4MYXBOX and tell them what the problem with the xbox is and that you would like to get it replaced. They will send you an empty box, put the xbox in the box and send it back(free) wait a week or two, and you have a BRAND NEW, Xbox 360 for real cheap!

And my friend and I are proof that this works, both of us have gotten premium consoles, this way. You just have to be very careful, on what you ask the seller before the auction ends, you don't want to tip them off about the warranty, because they may close the auction early and get the warranty themselves. And you have to be really cautious about the mfr date, and weather ití* been opened.
But if you can find one that meets all that criteria, Its really easy to deal with Xbox, (as long as you can understand people from India )


If you have any questions just shoot me a PM, and have fun
