The $285 price is without the hard drive.
As you stated, "upon confirmation that you understand that any attempts at fraud will be severely dealt with." Where did you get that I was scamming you? All I did was give you a counter offer and you shot off a long winded PM and basically call me a scammer. It is call haggling. It is what you do until parties agree. To call me ignorant and drunk, is uncalled for. If you don't like the deal, then just say no.
mer, lets remember here that you initated the contact, not me. my first reply to your offer of a 360 was to make clear that you understood I would not be buying it outright.
It was your "PSP will decrease in value after christmas," (in which you seem to imply that you are not going to give me the going rate NOW for a used PSP bundle because you feel it will not be worth as much in 3 months) that gave me the sneaking suspicion that you might be trying to cheat me, and I responded with a reminder that, not only do I know the value of things, I don't take kindly to people who look to take advantage of a seemingly new trader.
Besides, if you are offering your 360 for 285 shipped, and asking I give you "at least" $100 for my PSP bundle + 6 games, I would say there has to be at least a little alcohol involved.
Anyways, I apoligized and even said you seem like a good guy, let's just drop it and chalk it up to a misunderstanding.
edit: also, I never said that I wanted the HD, so I guess that's where things got murky. would you consider doing the deal w/o the HD?
