Where to Buy an Xbox 360 Used System

Are you looking at buying a gaming system for yourself or maybe as a gift but aren't ready to spend the new price?

Then you should take a look at buying an Xbox 360 used system which could save you well over 50% of the retail price (if you know where to look.)

You have probably seen some pretty tempting offers listed in the classifieds and elsewhere for used Xbox 360's and maybe you will get lucky but it is usually a good idea to buy used from someone or somewhere you can trust.

After all you don't want to purchase an Xbox 360 used system and it be DOA when you open it.

Buying online you can find some great offers on used systems from Amazon, a retailer you can trust.

Just depending on what Xbox system you are looking for, you could save as much as 50% off the new price.

Take a look at the Amazon listings and you will find several used Xbox systems listed, again just depending on which system you are looking to buy.

They make Christmas gifts or birthday gifts, "I love you" gifts or sometimes even "I'm sorry" gifts.

Xbox 360 Used Systems Make Great Gifts

Reasons for Buying an Xbox 360 Used System

There are a few reasons it makes sense to purchase a used system as opposed to buying a new gaming system.

Of course the first reason for buying an Xbox 360 used system would be if you are on a budget. They make great gifts and for kids, they really are not going to be concerned whether or not the system is brand new, as long as it works.

Another reason might be that you are adding to your existing gaming collection and are not really prepared to pay that additional money for a brand new system.

If you are a gamer or you are buying a gift for one, you might consider a used system that can be modified without investing a lot of money in the base system.

Whatever the reason, in today's economy, it just makes sense to save money where you can. Just because you have a budget does not mean you can't still get some of the things you want.

What Comes With an Xbox 360 Used System?

It really just depends on the seller, some include controllers, headsets, or even a game or two. You can find many reputable sellers on Amazon that have great feedback and offer low or even FREE shipping.

You can even find the latest from Xbox 360 with the Kinect sensor included which is a great deal. Some will even have the wireless controllers included, you just have to look around to find the best deal for what you want.

Whether its for you or a gift for someone you love, buy an Xbox 360 used system when you need to save a little and give a lot!

      Not only used but buying one with less memory is a good option. Now the 360 can use a USB for external memory so spending the extra money to have a larger hard drive is no longer necessary. There is a $100 difference between the 4GB and 250GB. I haven't met anyone who needs 250GB, but 4GB isn't quite enough. So adding a 16GB USB memory stick for $10 or less would be perfect.

      Great hub, voted useful ^_^

      Indeed, buying a used anything will have significant advantages, normally price being the prominent one.
