Buy a 360 with a 20 gig hard drive and 6 older games for $150? I'd like it, however it is used, but I can confirm it working. I'm an avid playstation 3 gamer looking for a console to take with me to university mainly for casual gaming, but I don't want to take my ps3 up because I don't want it ruined. Pros and cons to buying one would also be appriciated.

Sounds good to me depending on when the console was manufactured. What are the games?

How could one tell when it was manufactured? Also the games are NBA 06, Moto GP 07, King Kong, PGR3, DOA4, and Gun.

I would get a bigger harddrive if I were you. 20GB isn't a lot of space.

20gb will hold saves and maybe a couple of xbla games, I have my ps3 for media at home and my laptop as well, so I wouldn't use it for too much more than saves and the odd xbla game.

Amazon.com sells cheaper and you DON'T pay tax! Used games are better deals than when you buy at GameStop

Turn your console to look at the A/V ports on the back. Notice there is a sticker with a bar code and numerous numbers above those ports. Read the line titled MFR date. I have a feeling with the games you listed that the console is probably a launch unit if this is the only 360 the previous owner has had. Also make sure that the console is not modded and banned from Xbox Live. You can check this by hooking it up to the net when you test the console.

Also, other than the sports title which is obviously outdated, the rest of the titles are solid. DOA 4 is a great fighter. King Kong is actually surprisingly fun. It has decent FPS elements and when you get to play as King Kong it is pretty awesome. Not to mention it is one of the easiest 1000/1000 GS titles available. PGR 3 is a solid racer as well as Moto GP 07 (especially if you like bikes.) Gun was hit or miss for some but I played it on PS2 and thought it was cool. It will be even better on 360.

Intercooler TS. Not the regular Intercooler. Intercooler TS has its own power supply. Do research before you post.
