Buying from Ebay

Postby IrishSox14 » Sun Nov 11, 2007 4:45 pm

So last night and this morning i was trying to get an Xbox 360 and kept getting outbid! It was pretty frustrating but i finally got one for $240 with $32 with shipping and insurance for the shipping.? So my total was $272 and i got:
360 Premium Console
Original Box
1 Wireless Controller
20 GB Hard Drive
Power supply
Power cord
Component HD-AV cable
Xbox 360 Headset
Ethernet Cable
I'm thinking i got a good deal but what do you guys think? I sold my PS2 for the upgrade. Is there anything else I'm missing? And it might be Live ready and i do have a wireless internet connection so would it be ready once everything is in place.

That's definitely a good deal, but if you want to use Live with a wireless connection like you indicated, you have to buy a wireless adapter which I believe it another $100. If you can reach the ethernet cable from the console to a router or whatever, then that's probably a better idea.

I would look into getting a subscription to Xbox Live off of Ebay as well. I got one for $34 including shipping.

I am not a big gamer so I will leave that advice for the others but I have a great free program that helps me not get outbid. It's called a sniper program. It makes it so you don't have to sit at your PC and keep bidding when you get outbid. You just set a max price that you will pay and when you want to place your bid. I usually set it for 30 seconds left in case of PC slowness. Mine is called Auction Sentry. I got it for free but I see that they are charging for it now. I'm sure that you can find another 1 for free.
