    My little cousin's gamecube died and I want to get him a 360 for Christmas.

    I have no idea what 360s are out and which ones would be the best deal used. I also don't know what new processors to look for to make sure it doesn't turn into a brick one month after I get it.

    Suggestions?

    Try craigslist. You can get one for less than $100. Use your instincts; if the sale feels shady, don't buy it. (Make sure you buy a 360 made in 2009 or 2010. Manufacture date will be on the back of the system) Or used game stores like Gamestop, EBGames should have one for less than $150.

    Otherwise...

    ^ Practically every store will have a decent holiday bundle. I'd get him one like this for $200.

    They also have bundles with Kinect (motion gaming) and others that come with a bigger hard drive for $300 each.

    I'm a big games and an avid 360 player. I purchased mine May of '07 and got the red ring of death once and finally died on me last month. Now take take into consideration my 360 is used like crazy... My brothers and I are always on it. Either playing games, using Netflix, or watching a DVD.

    I recommend buying a 360 from Bestbuy, Gamestop, etc. Normally 360s come with a 1yr standard warranty free of charge. So if it does break you can get it fixed for free. Then after the year you can extend it for like $40.

    No need to buy your lil cousin an Xbox 360 Elite with 250 GB. Probably won't need anymore than 4 GB. Google "Xbox 360 Arcade".. its the $199 360 and will work just fine for you.

    Gunny, How long should a system that is used a TON last? 4 Years seems about right. Not good with ANYTHING breaking, but what can you do? I have both systems and I prefer the 360 over the PS3.

    Most appliances/gadgets last a lot longer than four years. It should be able to last until the next generation comes out.

    You can get the new 360 for $199.99, but it's only 4 GB.

    What are you willing to pay?
