The only catch is! Its broken, comes with no harddrive, and no headset. Is this worth it?

Your thoughts?

What the flip? Why are you buying it if its broken? Don't be surprised if it doesn't work... :|

If you can fix it yourself go ahead but don't expect M$ or anyone else to fix it.

Only if its RROD or E74 error. If it's a disc drive or anything else thats broken then you'll have to pay (quite alot) to fix it.

No, you won't have any warranty on it and It's probably not RROD or E74. You could have just gotten a new game.

I'm glad you didn't. I suggest you go buy a game now.

So basically you are asking if we think you should spend $50 on garbage?

I did that exact same thing. bought it broken, payed 140 bucks to fix it,(MS will fix any console now for $99 and that includes shipping) then MS dropped the arcade price. So I payed the same amount but did not get a HDMI xbox and did not get the free wireless controller and mem card. If it is the E74 or red ring then get the number first and call MS. If you can get it fixed for free then maybe it is worth it.

MS is charging $150 for repairing any type of broken 360.

well it only makes sense to go buy a new one, since the arcades are $200 now...and come with a memory card.
