Im looking to get a Xbox 360premium for around 300 dollars, and the only place so far that can do that is ebay, and im not so sure about ebay and its sellers because there are alot of scams on there. Any suggestions?

It's a set price... Your not going to find it 100 bucks cheaper in one place then the other.

it's called price control.

none of the console manufacturers want their sellers pissed off because one is able to sell for atrociously cheaper than another. As a result, they all sell it at the same MSRP (or a predefined, arbitrary price in the case of Gamestop/EBGames).

As such, the only way you're going to be able to get it cheaper is if you can buy a unit directly off someone else that doesn't want theirs anymore. Unfortunately, the chances are t hat the reason they don't want it anymore if it there is a problem with it preventing it from working properly. So I wouldn't count on it.

i bought lots of stuff from eBay but not my 360. But if i wanted to get one for $100 cheaper then i would probably get one from eBay! So try eBay just looks at the user's feedback buy the item only if the feedback is higher then 99%
