OK, I'm gonna buy a 360. I have a regular Xbox, but I want to move my gaming from the upstairs media room to the downstairs office so I can be near my wife while I game so I don't feel as guilty if I spend a couple hours playing. I could get a VGA adaptor for the Xbox, but I figure it's silly to put another $30-40 into that system, since all the games I have are backward compatible. I definitely want to get Gears of War and Oblivion along with the games I have now. So, I can get a used 360 Premium (I'd like a wireless controller and HDD, so the Premium will save some money) with Oblivion for about $330 shipped (no tax) on eBay with a 90 day warranty. I can get a new Premium with GoW for $425 shipped (inc. tax) from Dell. The other game (GoW or Oblivion, depending which package I get) will run me the same $50 or so regardless. So the question is whether the factory warranty is worth ~$90-100. The 360 has a reputation for unreliability, and a used/"refurbished" system has a decent chance that it was returned/sold due to this unreliability. A new unit would more likely be a newer build as well, which seem to have less trouble. A used unit could be an early/launch model which might have a higher failure rate. What to do? For the record, I can afford the extra $100, but it would mean not getting the another game right away (which is OK, I'm still working through Fable and Halo 2, so I have games in either genre - shooter/RPG - to play for awhile) and I am also famously cheap, so I don't WANT to spend the extra money unless I have to. Thanks for any advice.
