Did you know that you can get a core Xbox 360 system on ebay now for only $99.99? But eventhough they come with a 90 day warranty I still don't know if I would feel safe getting one of them. Xbox 360's are the worst systems when it comes to reliability. They overheat all the time! Everybody I know who has an Xbox 360 has had to send the darn thing back at least once.

In Canada, I have seen the XBOX 360 Arcade Console selling at Future Shop for as low as $169.99 new including 5 games. If you buy it from a store, at least you have a place to take it back to if anything goes wrong. Paying to ship something to an eBay seller who may or may not help you is expensive and risky.

Personally mate i reccomend that you get one in the shops, a new model of the 360 has come out with a new chipset etc, it has a new heat sink etc and means a highly unlikely chance of the overheat problem. If you want to look for this ask the store members to check the power cable to see if it has a 150 power usage.
