How much is the 360 worth?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I have an XBOX 360 Premium with 20GB HDD,

3 Wireless Controllers (2 White, 1 Pink) 3 Battery Packs, Battery Charger, Wireless Adapter, XBOX 360 Inter-Cooler,

Call OF Duty 3, NHL 2007, HALO, Quake 4, Viva Pinata, Harry Potter and The Order of The Pheonix, Guitar Hero II, Saints Row, Ghost Recon, Live Arcade Game (the one with bejeweled etc)

The reason I ask is because I'm wondering if I should sell it for cash, or trade it in to a Gaming Store like EB Games for Credit towards a PS3 Gaming system.

Thanks!

what do you figure it may be worth? I don't want to set too high of a price, or too low of a price.

EB Games is enticing because they currently have a deal on where if you trade 8 games (any system, Wii, PS1, PS2, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360 etc) You can get credit towards a PS3 making it so you can purchase it for only 199.00.

They mentioned that for my console alone without the HDD I could get 100, plus 40 bucks for the HDD. Then I'm sure if I sold all of my accessories It would almost be like a 'straight trade'.

What would you guys do? Craigslist it?

You should post in the appropriate section, which is the appraisal section. However, you need 35 rep to post there.

Wouldn't know why you'd want to though... The 360 has better games, better online functionality, better versions of multi format games, a better colour palette and better software handling. What does the PS3 have? BluRay? I tell you, all that 'oooh our games are great because they are on BluRay discs' is a load of bollocks. You have to install the games onto the harddrive before you run 'em! So, if BluRay's data transfer for PS3 games is so much better, why do you have to do that when the Xbox will run the same game straight from one regular DVD?
Bloody stupid.

so then don't appraise my system. Put this into context: what would you do, given my situation?

You will get more money selling it than you will trading it in. I would def sell it.

Thanks dude!

I'm totally clueless. I guess I'm just enticed by their deal. Trade any 8 games, and buy the system for 199.00

I'm not sure really, other than the fact that I rarely play my 360. I guess I want to try something new. I had a ps2 before I owned the 360 and I loved it. Sony consoles are very good, so I figured, the PS3 would follow suit, with the added bonus of having Blu-ray functionality.

Is the PS3 really that bad?

No, it's not bad by any means, I just think that after having access to both my personal preference is with the Xbox 360. You may feel differently so do whatever your heart desires. But the installation is a pain in the bum, especially if you only get the cheaper option with less HD space. And it's networking functionality only has half the features, just the basics really: friends list, messages etc. Nothing that works as well as the 360's central guide button with access to everything from one place, or the excellently laid out Marketplace.

But no, it isn't bad. It just feels as though I'm playing slightly fuzzier versions of the same games that I have to have the pain of installing in the first place. Also, although trivial, the analogue bottom shoulder buttons of the PS3 pad are, in my opinion, a joke compared to the wonderfully balanced triggers of the 360 pad.

I don't think that you will be happy with the PS3. I have them both and am trying real hard to love my PS3 but it's not working. All of the games so far have been real disappointing to me. Resistance, HAZE GTA4 etc...The graphics do not compare to the 360 IMHO. Gears of War, Bioshock were very impressive right away and I am not getting warm & fuzzy about any new titles upcoming. But you are better off selling it for cash, EB will rip you off and will not get much worth from them.
