Xbox 360 Free* on Black Friday

Post by Shane » Mon Nov 20, 2017 7:16 pm

GameStop is offering pre-owned Xbox 360s for $59.99 with $59.99 mail-in rebate in the form of a pre-paid Visa card. I never bothered with it originally, but that sounds tempting. Xbox One has incomplete backward compatibility, and I'm sure I could pick up some cheap games to go along with it. If nothing else, a backup controller for PC is nice. So much easier than messing with PlayStation controllers.

For that price I'd say go for it. I'm not the expert on 360 but there's probably a few games worth trying out on it and if all else fails you can probably get Halo Reach or something like that. I don't know.

Holy carp, that's tempting. Ain't a chance that I'd actually get one, though.

And remember, "I'm-a Luigi, number one!"

That's a really exciting offer, hopefully folks will be reasonable about it.

Reading some of the reviews on their pre-owned systems, I guess they don't test them. That doesn't surprise me. I also skipped the Gamecube, but then I bought a few dozen games when they clearanced their whole stock, 15% of which did not work. Still, not much risk for basically free, but there is some likelihood of getting a dud.
