Should I sell my xbox?

#1 Posted by Quiksilver0519 (402 posts) -

I kind of want to sell my xbox so I can make some money in an attempt to get an xbox 360 (:D), the games I have with it are Castlevania: Curse of Darkness, Mortal Kombat Armageddon, Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic 2: The Sith Lords, Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, The Sims: Bustin' Out, Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows, Midway Arcade Treasures 2, Halo 2, and Fable. The problem is:

1. My xbox doesn't work very well sometimes.

2. I'll never know if I might wanna play these games again sometime.

3. I'm kind of a pack rat.

4. I probably won't make a lot of money for this, so it might not be worth it.

So I just wanna get a couple of opinions, is it really worth it?

Lol, took more than an hour to get a reply. Thanks for the reply and I will still have to think about it, but I think my mind is made up.

Personally, I'm going to keep mine for a while. But I also have 60 games, and no plans to buy a new system for a while. And I resent the idea that the Xbox is not a real system...

If I were you, I'd keep the Xbox. The newer systems will be around for the next few years and you don't seem completely sure about your decision anyway. It's always good to make sure that you won't regret your choices, especially when it comes to something that will be increasingly rare to find as the years pass.

it's tempting... but you should keep it.

if you want to buy a 360, then buy it...has back compartibility so u can play almost every xbox games...but buy one later when they add the new hardware 60mm chip, so you wont get the red rings of death

but dont sell the xbox, might come handy

where did the ideas like "you are only a real gamer if you have the 360." and "xbox isn't a real console" come from. Xbox is a good console, I use mine all the time, and I have loads of great games for it. So I would keep it if I were you, or sell it and get a new xbox from the internet. Hard to find though.

Wow, thanks everyone for the responses. I don't think it would really make much sense to sell my xbox anymore, plus I just played it yesterday to see if I still like it, and I do!

You'd be a fool to get rid of your Xbox. Just keep it.
Besides who say's you can't have an Xbox and a 360?

It's not that it's just I was so desperate to make some money to save up for the 360.

I suggest that you sell the system, as the 360 is 10 times better in each department, the original was good for the time it was out, but the 360 really made a big change.

Wait for a while to get a 360, lust look for a good offer and take the oppotunity, that will save you more money than selling your xbox. You don't get whatit's worth.

I was thinking about selling two of my systems that I really have no reason to keep anymore recently (Playstation and Xbox) but I decided against it.

I like owning alot of different systems, I don't know why, but I do. And also if your Xbox 360 breaks (like mine...) you will still have an original Xbox to play all of the older games on.

And there are always "modifications" you can do to your classic Xbox. Don't just get rid of it ;_;.

Ya I'm not gonna sell it anymore, I'm just gonna save up and look for a good offer on craigslist or maybe ebay. If I can't find a good offer on either of those I'll just try and get one at gamestop.

Yeah dont sell it unless you KNOW it will give you the extra cash you need to get the 360.
#18 Posted by hp1145 (25 posts) -
Yeah true, I think that makes sense. Do keep it though.

yes you could keep money
#21 Posted by jeeunit987 (25 posts) -
yes you could keep money

I'd keep the games and get rid of the system. If you can get acceptable money for both then it might be something to consider. Its always nice to revist old games down the road though.

Save up a bit more money for the 360. Keep your old Xbox and games. If your Xbox doesn't really work that well, it will still probably outlast a 360 POS.
