My xbox died a long time ago. Got it when it first launched. Now that Halo 4 is around the corner, I want it the console version. Only thing holding me back is if I buy it and in a year or two xbox 720 is launched. I would feel like I wasted my money. Lets say at best, 720 comes out in 2+ years. I know that is a lot of time and prob will not be playing halo 4 like a mad man after 2 year, but do you guys think 2 years+ of xbox gaming is worth 400$? then prob shell out 500-1000$ for the next console.
I'm sure you can get some kind of used/refurbished 360 with hard drive or a separately purchased hard drive for between $150-$250, plus the cost of Halo 4 and Xbox Live Gold bundle deals which wouldn't take too much out of your pocket.
