Console is dead, decided on a repair until I saw the ad for a $99 console. But it reads like you have to buy 24 months of Live at $14.99! Already have a sub so I don't care about that...did I miss something? Cause this does not sound like a deal...
[quote user="NYJets1968"]2 years is $70.00 if you look for sales,[/quote]Eh, you can say that, but the vocal minority who rail against Live fees don't think that way.[quote user="jhill625"]or find a decent used one off ebay or craigslist.[/quote]It is generally
considered to be a bad idea to buy a used 360.
[quote user="RED SHIFT1"]So, in reality, you can't acutally buy the console for $99 unless you pay the $14.99 PER MONTH (yes that is what it says) for Live?[/quote]One can, but when one stops paying the $14.99/mo for Live the console is deactivated. At least
two people have posted on the forums about buying consoles new via eBay, only to find that their consoles stopped working a month later. They were scammed by people who bought the $99 console in a store, then resold it on eBay for less than the stand-alone
It's just like TiVo. If one's TiVo is on a month to month subscription, failing to renew the subscription renders virtually all functionaly disabled.
It's a bad idea to buy a used console. It's a bad idea to buy a new console from somewhere other than a trusted reseller.
