Yeah this one was a 5 but it had a 250 gb hd. I don't know much about 360s as I never bought one, but I would think 89.99 for the non white systems is good isn't it?


If it had a 250gb HDD, I'd say so. I didn't know they even made those sizes for the old models - my Elite came with a 120GB one back when I bought it new a few years ago.

I've been coming and going on the site today. I just saw four of those Red 360s (Gears of War?) show up for $169.99. I'll keep searching for a 120/250GB black 360 tonight. Definitely have to have a controller; not concerned about headsets.

Bought some of the Insignia portable DVD sets 7-10 days ago on the Deal of the Day. Mine was a 7 and looks new (wrapping, shrink wrap, everything included). Really impressed for my first Cowboom purchase.

weird, I've been refreshing and I didn't see the Gears consoles. The site seems pretty glitchy (at least in firefox)

Picked up a PS3 slim 120Gb for $120. This'll be my secondary PS3 and I'll keep it dedicated to my PS 3D Display. Also planning on using it as a basic computer of sorts. The internet browser works with mouse and keyboards, right? Do most websites work just fine on the PS3?

Oh and it was a grade 5, with everything but AV cable and owners manual. All I wanted was for it to come with a dualshock, which it does.

I'd grab a 3DS but even the 6's are missing a bunch of stuff. Wish they would adjust the price when they're missing the dock or the SD card.

I haven't ever seen a 3DS that had the SD card included with it at Cowboom.

On a related note, there's this red 3DS that includes absolutely nothing but the 3DS itself and a stylus that keeps appearing for me. It won't freakin' go away. Probably because no one wants the dumb thing.

I'm sitting with a Grade-6 120GB 360 in my cart, about to buy it through Amazon Checkout. Does anyone know if the gift card amount I have at Amazon would be put towards this purchase? I hope it can be.

From my experience, no.

How did you get them to price match it for you? Call or online chat? Or a different way.


Online chat, they just found it on the site and gave me the credit in the form of a code (which will be emailed to me).

Thanks. I was on the look out, and boom a $116 160gb popped up, with the same missing items, except a grade 4. Was able to get it for $120 after taxes and shipping.

EDIT: Also added coupons to the OP. There's a $5 OFF $50, $10 OFF $150, $20 OFF $300 for those who didn't know.

Does Cowboom take either Best Buy gift cards or credit cards as forms of payments?

To update on the grade 5 red Wii I bought, everything was included and BRAND NEW! The games we're steal sealed, cables still tied with wires and stuff! The system itself has some small scratches and imprints from the protective bag on one side which means it was probably just a display unit cause the system software was outdated even for 2 year old games.

Fucking score!

or you click on a deal leave it on the page for 2-5 minutes then click add to cart. most likely it say someone claimed this deal and gives you like 4-5 other systems to get

Since it's been mentioned in this thread, while off topic, I figured you guys should at least know that my 3DS has been out of warranty for 2 months and 3 days and just today (after reading this thread and learning about the top screen imprint issue being an actual repairable problem) I called Nintendo and they agreed to do the repair and waive the $85 repair fee for this specific problem.

If it wasn't for this thread, I would have never known to do something about it, so thanks for bringing it up guys!
