chill man, i'm trying to be a CAG here :(


Yeah and other CAGs may resort to buying used controllers and if they come across your broken one because you thought to trade it in as 'working fine', they'd be pretty pissed off. I'm sure you would too if you were in the same boat.

Dude you are preaching to the choir, what you are doing is like spitting on a wildfire. There is so much of this that goes on that you don't even see posted here. The last thread alone had numerous people asking the exact same thing.

The moral of the story is don't buy used game hardware at GS. GS's own model of testing is flawed. the 360 is the most broken console in the history of video games and they STILL playtest them for less than 5 minutes before saying they are good. If they don't care they are buying broken crap why should you?

Scored the last one at my store in Glendale, AZ. Most of the stores I called got in about 5 and a shipment at 11:00am. The guy had 4 other 360's sitting behind the counter and looked pissed lol. One of them was a MW2 console which confused me since the new ones are basically those but smaller. Meh whatever. I'm setting mine up right now.

Paid $76.xx out of pocket after trading in an Elite console, 2 20GB hdds, wireless adapter, and wireless controller. Not half bad at all! Looks slick as hell too. Much quieter, I've got to say.

But yeah Oh well. The early bird gets the worm!

Yep.. just called mine and they're sold out. They said they wouldn't get another shipment in until July.

I know this may have been asked a lot, but does anyone know if I can transfer my files from my 360 to a couple of 4GB usb?

The hard drive is an extra trade-in on top of the $100? Interesting.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

Got one around noon today, they got at least 5 calls about them while I was doing the trade-in. Their system was still messed up so I got the extra $25 credit for the Xbox too. I imagine they sold out pretty quickly though the way the phone calls were coming in.

What's with the bolded No Pre-Orders/Reserves? My GS was happy to take my $50 and hold onto it for a month or whatever.

Officially they weren't doing it. Most places still aren't. Going to be YMMV. Also because the trade-in values wont activate unless there is a console on the other end of that trade to get the value. So pre-ordering the console wont get you those values.

Here's an excellent article detailing the differences in every possible way between the X360 and X360 'S':

i honestly wouldn't buy it, at least for me it didn't update the licenses automatically, so you're just as well off using a USB drive anyway.

Buy it? I thought Microsoft was giving transfer cables out for free.

I'm gonna take my first gen 360 in for the trade. But I'm worried an uninformed employee will claim that the HD is part of the $100 trade in, or won't accept it without the ethernet cable or headset.

Apparently my store has one left, but I still need to track down my battery cases and my headset and get over there...hope I can.

Does anyone know if GS will test the USB ports on the unit? I just discovered today that that are not working. Since I never use them I know one of my kids had to have done something to them.

This deal becomes instantly not worth it to me if I am going to eat a refurb fee over USB drives.

Charger Kit: $5
Total: $145

My store in Hawaii got an email from Corporate last night telling them to take reservations and not sell them first-come-first-served anymore.

Hopefully my area will receive their shipments today...if not, then probably Monday.

It all depends on who you get. Like I mentioned a page or so back, they only checked for warranty stickers on mine, asked me if it worked and that was it.

So they took your console and gave you the deal even though they didn't have them in stock? Thanks for the info!

My GS said that they'd take the console as long as the deal lasts after I reserved mine.
