Cheap Microsoft XBOX 360

Our Price: $97

There are literally thousands of discount Xbox 360 consoles floating around online at the moment. The reason is because the newer version, the XBOX 360 Kinect Bundle has taken over in sales. If you would rather pick up the original Xbox 360, without all the novelty accessories, you should pick one up online. For some reason the Xbox 360 still retails for far more than it's worth in video game stores all across the USA.

However, you can get your hands on a cheap XBOX 360 for almost half the price you would pay in Dixons, HMV or Best Buy.

The Xbox 360 comes in a multitude of different packages but all play the same games. Most people don't or will ever need massive hard drives or HDMI support. Get your XBox 360 only with the features you need.

Please note that this is the original Xbox 360 console. If you're looking for an Xbox with a few more bells and whistles, we all have the latest Xbox 360 Elite, which comes with a HDMI output and a 120GB hard drive.

Microsoft XBOX 360 Reviews (13)

  1. November 30, 2009 by Thommy

    The Xbox 360 is reaaly a great console, but unfortunately in my opinion it has more cons than it’s Sony competitor, the PS3. I have had the XBox since when it was launched back in 2005 and since then it died on me completely 3 times and I cannot say that I was using it a lot. The 3 year warranty handled the situation very well, it was fixed quickly. Hopefully it won’t happen again since I’m out of the warranty period now so I would have to pay for the repair, if a HDD fails for eg, it costs 3 times the price of a regular one.

    Regarding the games I can say that there are only a few XBox specific ones, most of the games are out for PS3 and PC, there are a lot more PS3 exclusives out there.

    I would like it to have wi-fi also, and XBox LIVE could be a lot more cheaper, it makes owning this console quite expensive. It is a great service though but PSN is very close and it is FREE.

    Overall it is a great console, but I would choose the PS3 anytime over it, it simply has better features and more pros.

    Pros:
    Xbox LIVE is great, awesome games

    Cons:
    Reliability, no wifi, LIVE is expensive

    I was looking for a console for the kids and I had to make a tough decision between Xbox 360, Wii and PS3. I didn’t choose Wii because of the inferior graphics, but both PS3 and Xbox seemed like very good consoles. At the end the price decided – Xbox 360 is significally cheaper, it has less features, but these are features we would never use anyway. I bought the 60GB version. In the box there was the wireless controlled with batteries, two headsets, manuals, the HDD, the cables and the main console unit. With the included cables it can be connected to both HD and standard televisions, using a switch the correct TV type can be selected.
    It took me only about 5 mins to set everthing up. I was impressed with the awesome graphics. The wireless controller is great, very well built and works perfectly even from greater distances inside the room.
    There are many many great games for this console and most of them are quite cheap, so everyone can easily find something to play.

    Things I don’t like about it are mostly hardware related – starting with the fan noise – it is very loud, combined with the spinning disk noise it’s really annoying. It happened a few times also that it overheated when playing a few hours non-stop when it was a bit warm inside, a short pause solved the problem every time.

    I like this console very much and I think that I have made a right decision buying the Xbox 360

    Pros:
    assortment of games, controller, support, graphics, multimedia features

    Cons:
    hardware issues (overheating, fan noise…)

    I have been an owner of the x-box now since it first came out and I am very disappointed in the product. No only did it have to be replaced 2 times now I have a unit that is not working and being told that am out of my warranty so it would cost more to fix so why do it. I would not tell anyone to buy this product that has so many issues and not willing to replace the item when it is a default in the system.

    Pros:
    The graphics are great when it works

    Cons:
    Not working long enough to enjoy

    Xbox 360 is a GREAT console. It has amazing graphics, great games, and is just all-around very good. I have never had any problems with fan noises, and even so if you have your volume on your TV up at all to an average level you can’t hear the fans anyways. As for its life span, most people do get 2-3 years out of it before it breaks, and then just because of normal wear and tear. Also, just the simplicity of the setup is great. It walks you through initial setup and makes it easy so you can change your settings whenever you want. Last of all, the user interface is EXCELLENT! It makes it so easy to travel around your system, with the Xbox Dashboard navigating everything. I’ve heard from friends that the PS3 Live system is inconsistent, and the friend’s list is very difficult to work with. PS3 live may be free, but since it is wi-fi almost everybody is playing from the same source, which crowds up the servers.
    All in all: Xbox > Ps3

    Pros:
    Fast Live
    Simplicity
    Navigation
    Graphics

    Cons:
    Red Rings (Error Messages)
    Expensive

    i love my xbox. i got a xbox 360 arcade/60 gb for christmas. the things i love: great graphics, awesome games, xbox live, wireless controllers. things i dont like so much: fan noise, overheating, rrod, no built in wifi. i ahd gotten my xbox pre-owend, so i had i for about a year and started to worry about getting rrod. so i started to save up some money and traded in my xbox and accesories and got the brand new 250gb xbox 360 slim. the xbox slim in a newer, upgraded version of of older xbox 360. it has a smaller, sleeker design, glossy black finish, touch sensitive buttons, built in wifi,a huge 250gb hard drive, and last but sertanly not least, no rrod!

    Pros: graphics games xbox live wireless controllers
    Cons: overheating, rrod, no built in wifi fan noise ( the new xbox slim has none of these proplems!)

    why would u complaibn about all the problems 1. you need to clean your xbox so it doesnt overheat if u dont play it much 2. every machine makes noise and the xbox is bigger and better so u will hear it its not very loud so shut up about the noise 3. everything has problems just like everyone so shut up about it not being perfect because i bet u arnt

    Pros: graphics, games, gameplay, and apps
    Cons: people who modify their xbox or game are losers who are to competiteve on a game with no rewards.
