Is now THE time to sell off my Xbox?

Because I don't think I'd get a better value to put towards a next-gen console, whatever it may be. Also, where? To Gamestop for credit or on Ebay, where nobody will probably want to buy it?

Better to keep it and save up for next-gen imo. I find it crazy to sell off your console and all of your games just to up to the next gen. Why did you invest in the console and the time to make that money for that stuff if you are just going to throw it away? (Not saying that you do). Next gen doesn't offer b/c, so unless you've already beaten all of your games and you don't want anything else on the xbox 360, then I guess go for it.

GTA is just around the corner!! I plan to sell mine a month or 2 after next gen launch and start saving up. Most system launch games will be available on the 360 anyways.

I'd say keep it. Especially because the One is not backwards compatible. I'm keeping mine forever, and I'm dirt poor.

Sell your 360 because a new sytem is coming out....are you freakin kidding? Unless your REALLY pressed for money your not going to get any real value for it! A brand new 360 is pretty cheap now and their onlygoing to get cheaper over the next few months.

If the XB1 was backwards compatible I would say do it because you could enjoy playing all of your old games until some really great tittles come out for it!  So, enjoy your 360 cause it's not worth selling and just save up a little more to get the XB1.

Keep it u might regret selling it.

The question to ask yourself is when you go next gen and are busy playing those games, will you ever want to go back and play old ones?

I don't sell consoles because I don't enjoy losing money.

id wait till the xbox one gets a killer app first

#11 Posted by wwervin (10257 posts) -

Still some great games coming out soon like GTA V and Watch Dogs and Assassin's Creed 4. I'm sure AAA titles will release all throughout next year alongside the next gen versions. If you don't switch systems right away you can still benefit from owning a 360.

 

Also I'd like to point out that it was mentioned that it's possible to plug your 360 into the Xbox One and use it that way. I don't know exactly how that would work but it sounds interesting. Sounds like you'll be able to play 360 games using your X1 that way.

Wayl, as a college student, I'm fairly strapped for cash. That coupled with the fact that as of right now, I don't play it much anymore. However, once school starts and I stop working fulltime, I'll be gaming more, moreso when the new consoles come out. So, I mean, good arguments abound as to why I should keep it that I didn't really consider fully.

It's good that you got your priorities straight and I understand that you are strapped for cash, but as said before it's not worth selling.:).....So just enjoy the Box dude, its got plenty of life left in it!

I would keep it as you can't play your 360 games on Xbox One...

I'm hanging on to mine. 

The new consoles aren't exactly blowing me away, and the launch lineups leave something to be desired. I don't see myself moving on for awhile. Depending on how much you game (what you've already played(, from here on out is going to be great for your wallet if you stay on the 360. If you've played everything you want to play I guess go ahead and sell it, but if you think you might miss some games you have on the 360 you may regret it.

u need the xbox 360 for gta v.

#17 Posted by cejay0813 (672 posts) -

I'd say hang on to it. XB1 will not be backwards compatible and there are still some great releases in-store for current gen consoles.

#18 Posted by Zanman720 (257 posts) -

If it is anything like the life span of the PS2.....Then no. Xbox 360 may prove valuable in the future. 

#19 Posted by jendres12 (25 posts) -
Gamestop won't give you anything and eBay is way to unpredictable.... id hold on to it, if your like me you probably have some awesome times on that Box haha

Dude. I'll have money for the new Xbox. But I'm not selling my 360.
#22 Posted by ziggyww (907 posts) -
I have just got a 360 after years of playing PS3 for the exclusives that I have missed. So working through the Gears of War and Halo games.
#23 Posted by gatsbythepig (10488 posts) -

Yes it is.  I'll buy it for $20.

#25 Posted by SolitudeLunatic (25 posts) -
Nah. I wouldn't sale mine, hell, I still have my original Xbox. But if its something you're willing to do....then go for it?

You will most probably be interested in GTA 5, but if not then you should just sell now.

Get rid of it now, the system will only depreciate in value at this point.

Sell it on amazon marketplace, ebay or craigslist where you get cash for it. Lamestop wont give you dick for credit compared to what you can sell it for.

It's already worth very little when you resell it. Why do it when a bunch of great games are coming out this fall? Might as well just keep it.

craigslist

#30 Posted by JohnTheGrudge (27 posts) -
I'd hang onto the XBox 360. GTA V will be better than any next gen title that's been announced and there's still dlc for Bioshock Infinite to come out. The forthcoming XCOM and Killer IS Dead games also look promising. If you're a Street Fighter fan there's Ultra to look forward to. I'd save for the next gen console and wait a bit longer for it.
#31 Posted by bl00dline954 (140 posts) -
If all else fails you could try Craigslist but from my experience in looking last month, the best and safest way to go is Gamestop. Either way you really won't get much for it. Most people either already have one or are saving up to get a PS4 or XboxOne so they aren't interested in buying a 360 to most likely only play for 3 more months. But Gamestop does have some decent looking trade in promotions going on right now (probably because they know people want to trade their 360 in to get the One cheaper) so again, they may be your best bet if you go that route. I was going to as well but was able to pre-order the One on my credit card so I will just keep my 360 and maybe one day trade it in for future game purchase discounts or accessories for the One.
#32 Posted by destinhpark (4768 posts) -

Nope. Too many excellent games that you probably haven't even played yet, plus you won't get a lot of money towards the next gen consoles. It won't even be worth it. Trust me, you'll be happy you kept your 360, I promise you that. 

#33 Posted by Ricardomz (2715 posts) -

I'll sell mine when I know that there are no games this gen that I still want to play. I still need to play:

Red Dead Redemption, Skyrim, GTA 5, Batman: Arkham Origins, Crysis 3, Far Cry 3 and Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3

After I'm done with all those, I can sell my PS3 and my 360 and enjoy the PS4 and later maybe the X1.

Save it!

Xbox one is not backward compatible!!

#35 Posted by magicalclick (24496 posts) -
no, because Xbox One cannot play Xbox 360 game.
