I was wondering if anyone else got one. Is this a good price? Is the slim better then the E model ?

I always liked the look of it. If you have a Xbox One also a E model may be a better choice since it looks nice with the X1.

I don't know.  My slim's disc drive crapped out after only 2 years.  Now the drive tray won't even close all the way so you have to play with it open.  My E model is only about 8 months so who knows.  Might have to make a radioshack stop tomorrow...

Especially the Red Light's glow.

I'd totally get in on this if I can find one. My 360 phat has all but died on me (not surprising since I found it in a dumpster - long story).

But to be honest I'd also like to get a PS3 at a decent price. Most if not all of the 360 games I love are multiplatform, and I could finally play the Kingdom Hearts collections.

Any sort of stock locator just to tell who has them? Either way I'll probably check some of my nearby ones, I'd love to get an 360 again to play a few games

Does anyone know where in SoCal I can get a regular 3ds (for under 100). I couldn't find any in stock at my local radioshacks

 

-edit oops I posted twice in the same thread oh well-

Was digging online and found the S 4GB under Catalog #260-1769.  There is no stock locator online, but someone might have a shot having them look it up in-store possibly...

Keep in mind that the E eliminated the optical out port.  The S has it.


Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

With the E (xbox 360) built in flash memory I'd be careful, apparantly it loosens.

I heard that the E model doesn't have/support its own component cable or s-video.

 

With the E (xbox 360) built in flash memory I'd be careful, apparantly it loosens.

Does it just not register with the system when booted up?  I'm not the type to open up my systems and fix them with ease.

 

I don't know.  My slim's disc drive crapped out after only 2 years.  Now the drive tray won't even close all the way so you have to play with it open.  My E model is only about 8 months so who knows.  Might have to make a radioshack stop tomorrow...

I was thinking about going hunting for this deal, but feel discouraged more now. 

A slim model S lasting 2 years for me isn't that great.  My falcon Elite is still running. 

I wanted a slim model S to replace my phat when it craps out.  I want the S model because I can use my Microsoft branded VGA cable and component cable. Was also going to put a 3rd party 500GB hard drive in it just to play my installed disc 360 games.

Can anyone help me find a marked down 3ds (not xl) in SoCal? The people at my local radioshack don't know how to look up inventory :/ My brother's birthday is coming up.
