Ugh. I've been trying to nab a 60GB xbox 360 all day. Even when it does come up, it never adds to my cart.

Seems like it is down to one of the Stlyus-less XLs, PSP Go missing a bunch of stuff, and the Japanese Wii that is missing everything.

This is not a one of a kind sale. Cowbom has very good prices all around for their used consoles so if you really want a used console just browse from time to time and you will get one eventually.
I am waiting for my $110 3DS that was shipped yesterday, it was condition 6 so I expect it to very in very good condition. I think the only thing missing was the 2gb card which can be easily replaced IMHO.

Holy cow...boom, my 3ds is in canada, lol. Should be here by Friday....

Dsi xl is well worth it. Got one for $100 awhile back and don't regret it.

it seems as if quantities are limited, if you keep adding stuff to cart, eventually you can get other stuff to pop up, max items per cart is 5 so I would add until I get to 4 that I don't plan on keeping if I don't get what I want to pop up and then keep refreshing...

Well game systems seem to be a reoccurring thing, they always have a dotd after 12am, they have good prices, most items I believe have a 30-90 day wty, or a purchasable one for 1-3 years for cheap

Woohoo! My DSi XL arrived today! :) Sadly, it'll be several hours before I'm home to check it out. :*(

Would you mind posting some pics and the rating of the item in Cowboom. Want to relate condition of the system with the rating given. Thanks

Sure, I can do that, though it may be the weekend before I get to (long work hours). For what it's worth, the listing claimed it was condition rating 9 (I know, I don't believe it either).

I will also give detailed info on the conditions of the systems I receive from cowboom (they were all 6s)

I do have one question though; do all 60gb 360s have HDMI? I just realized i didn't bother to confirm that the one i ordered had one or not. It's kinda a deal breaker, but i don't remember when they started adding HDMI to 360s.

Assuming it's paired with its original hard drive, then all 60GB 360s should have HDMI ports, I believe. Some more info: http://en.wikipedia....box_360_Premium

the 60 replaced the 20, right? (or were they in production concurrently?)

if so, i'd say the 60's should all have hdmi as some of the newer 20's had it.

i got my 360 in... 2007? it was whatever year that the holiday pack came with Forza 2 and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. it's a 20gb and has HDMI (well,.. it was a 20 until i learned how to make it a 250)

You got a very good deal on a relatively new handheld on the market. Why bellyache and demand a refund from a company that doesn't really owe you anything? I think this is why some companies choose to treat all of their customers poorly anymore, since a small(but very vocal) percentage of their customers are overly demanding.

You obviously thought it was a good enough deal when you hit submit order, so why moan over $5 and that they're now putting out 'higher quality' ones? You got a deal, be happy with it. Some couldn't even get the 3DS systems to pop up for them to attempt to buy.

:roll: Prices drop or get raised all the time. Whatever happened to people being happy with the deal they got and not bellyaching about when they see a better deal and demanding a partial refund?

Yes, sir. Clearly, you purchased something at a price you thought was fine. So what if it's slightly cheaper several days down the road?

Avoid trading stocks, guys. No refunds there.

Actually I just started trading stock in December so far GE and nvidia I have doing very well for me. And I try to save all the money I can im a penny pincher sure but il take any good deals I can. It just aggravates me when I bought something and then they put it on a better sale 2 days on the road I put a lot of time into researching deals and stuff so I can maximize my dollar.

We all do and it sucks when there's a better deal a week(or a month) later. You feel like you could've managed to get more for your money if you waited. This happened to me with Best Buy's ultra clearance they did of some titles right before Christmastime. I bought Alice: Madness Returns for $19.50 and then I believe later on they had it for under $10 on their website. This also happened with Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition, where I believe they lowered it to the same price as Alice eventually($9.50) and I lost out on $10 again.:cry:

But at the time I felt that I received a great deal, so eventually my feeling of losing out subsided.

I can kinda feel his pain. Right after I ordered my PSP GO condition 6, a condition 7 one popped up immediately after. :wall:

You can't win them all. If you chase deals all the time, you're bound to get burned once in a while. It happens to everyone. When I get burned I just suck it up and think about all the amazing deals I've gotten that far outweigh any bad purchases.

Fucking cowboom! They sent me a DSi instead of a DSi XL! Now I have to go through a huge hassle to get this fixed.
