The deal is even better now. It's $120 off instead of $100, so after the extra 7% discount it comes to $222 before tax. I think I'm gonna finally bite on one, even though I'm more than happy with my PS3, just because so many of my friends have them.

Yeah I had to bite on this. I don't want a Falcon, but at $222+tax it's too good a deal to pass up. If I do get a Falcon I'll probably resell it.

Well, I bit on this. When I sent in my first RRoD'd unit (made in 2006), they gave me back a refurbed launch unit, made in 2005. The thing was loud and buggy as hell. Now that one just died, and it's on its way back to M$. I've been wanting an HDMI-outputting unit, and this price is too good to pass up. Here's hoping for a Jasper...

HDMI has been the standard shortly after the elite was launched in 07. If your getting their 08 holiday bundle it'll be on there. If your buying new, chances are it'll have an HDMI port.

Just got mine last night and Dun Du Du Dah... it's a Falcon. :cry: I haven't
opened it yet though. I might try the Gamestop swap thing. I've got a
frient that used to manage one and I think he still has some ties there. My
GF will tell me I'm retarded though. :lol:

Why do so many people buy 360's if they know they break. I have a PS3 and want a 360 but am to scared to buuy one. Do people think it's funny when they have to replace the system multiple times? I just don't understand. I also read how some people have 2 or more 360's so they can stay in gameplay while the other gets fixed. Is there something i'm seriously missing out on the 360? I do want one but dont want the problems.

Ah the story of the Xbox 360 Loyalist. I'm not trying to speak for
everyone but this is what I believe:

Many people, myself included, have gone through having multiple Xbox 360's
break(RROD, E74, etc.) and still send them back each time or buy newer
versions just to have one that works. This is a testament to how good the
system actually is. Now I know that sounds counterintuitive but hear me out.
If the system wasn't spectacular would we deal with that? I'm not talking
about the nuts and bolts (i.e. the hardware that's actually breaking down).
I'm talking about the Dashboard/NXE, Xbox Live, The Marketplace, and of
course the games/, online multiplayer and Achievements/Gamerscore. Even
the shape of the controller. It all gels to make for a wonderful and fun
experience. I get a warm and fuzzy feeling every time I turn on my xbox 360.

I've had to send my Xbox 360 in 5 times and now with this deal I've bought
a whole new one. And YES it is worth it to have that feeling every day.
Even if it is just for a few minutes playing an arcade game.

On the bright side, you as a new Xbox 360 customer would be getting one
of the newer versions of the console. They have a very small chance of
breaking. The horror stories like mine and BigFishCarl's are mostly on first
or second year consoles. But in fact I have a close friend who got one on
launch day same as me and has never had so much as a hicup. Go figure.

Sorry to be so long winded but I just explained this to a friend at work the
other day and felt it needed to be posted here. You know since you asked
and all.:)

I think most people deal with it because they invested so much time into the console that it doesn't seem worth it to start over, not because the system is so "spectacular".

ROFL! Are you paid to say this?

I think it's unacceptable that customers have to deal with shit like this.

No I just really like my 360. I just thought the "warm and fuzzy" thing
would be a humorous way to put it. I guess I was right.:lol:

You're right. It is unacceptable. But we do deal with it because we really
like our 360's. That's my point. It is well worth having one. And at least
Microsoft owned up to the issue and for a while now has had the 3 year
warranty in place.

I ordered this for $240 shipped using the Dell Educational discount.

Got a jasper.

If you're shipped from Fresno, CA, there is a good chance your 360 will be a jasper.

Mine was shipped from Fresno and I got a Falcon. It's actually not bad though. I don't think it's loud and it doesn't heat up too much after 3 hours of play.

My new one seems to be dieing. Keeps freezing in Grand Theft Auto and weird texture issues in L4D. Still haven't gotten my refund from dell for the one I was over charged for.

Update:

Dell is replacing my 360. They said the SKU I ordered from was temporally out of stock and that the Manufacture was not making anymore. They offered me another Pro Bundle which I accepted.

It's another Pro Model: http://accessories.u...19&sku=A2058346

Should be here by Next Thursday.

I also got a full refund for the orignal Xbox purchase that was over priced.

It's the same as the Endwar Bundle except without Endwar. Both are Holiday Bundle consoles.

Oh no is it! What have I Done!!!!! :p

I know it's the same bundle which is why I accepted it. I'm hoping when he said the manufacture is no longer making it he meant the falcons. But Who knows, just want it to work. :D

I said that because you still probably have the same chance of getting a falcon. I'm sure when Dell said they were no longer manufactured he/she probably thought the Endwar bundle was a different SKU, which it is not. Dell just stopped bundling Endwar. I don't think all the falcons would be gone that quickly but I could be wrong though. Good luck to you on hopefully getting a Jasper.

So after all the problems I have been having with the 360, they finally gave me something for all my trouble. VIVA FREAKING PINATA! Just have your 360 break 5 times due to problems at the refurbish center demand that you talk to a supervisor and they will give you a pick of. Viva Pinata, project gothem racing 3, an xbox live vision camera, a 360 media controller, and a play and charge kit. *sigh*

I asked for a supervisor a few weeks ago but the gentleman said there was no manager there at the time. I'll try it again though since Im still fighting to get my system repaired.
