Just wondering if you can trade in a broken xbox 360 (RROD) to Gamestop for credit toward a new one?

My xbox just got out of the 3 year warranty and I found out over phone that the repair will cost $200(the price of a brand new xbox)!!

Yes, I know that if you repair through online its only $100 but if I can get some credit for my broken console I might as well get a new xboxarcade which should be guaranteed to not break down.

Your better off sending it in to Microsoft. Buying an arcade version while you wait for yours to come back and then returning the new arcade you bought.

They wont hand you a new 360, they will plug your 360 in to see if it works.

I wouldn't be surprised if they did. They re-package used games and sell them as new.

I wouldn't be surprised if they took in broken 360's they easily have the corporate resources to actually fix them and resell them at quiet a profit.

I don't think they would take it in. I used to work at Game Crazy, and I know we would never take in broken systems. This group of kids constantly tried to trade-in their broken PS3. I gladly turned them down every time because I didn't want to get in trouble with my manager or district manager.
