So I just entered the next generation & got an X1 with help from EBay

#1ave1Posted 4/29/2014 10:58:25 AM
Here's the deal I got: http://m.ebay.com/itm/151289940913

Quite happy with how much it cost :) I'll probably sell off the games I don't want and one of the controllers to lower my overall expenditure because I'm cheap.

Can't wait for it to arrive on Friday 8D

If a tree falls in a forest and you hear it, but your eyes are closed, how do you know it's not just fifty porcupines sliding down a hill?

No actual pictures? Seems legit.

You paid almost $500 for an item that had zero actual images of what you're buying? And not only that but the listing itself is completely contradictory stating that it is Brand New but is also in Used condition.

Good luck, TC.

Hope it works out for you.

I'm not the nicest person you'll meet.
Have a real point please.

Well he wont be ripped off will he.

PayPal will return the money to him if he is being scammed.

I'm sure he isn't though.

I'm sorry to tell you this but that is not a good deal, you ended up paying 513.35 dlls (with shipping cost included) for a used console with one bad game (madden), nba 2k14 is quite good, but you can buy it new for 39.99, you can also get a new controller for 40.00 if you know where to buy.

A new Xbox One with either Titanfall or Forza (both great games) sets you back 450.00, plus 40 for a new copy of nba 2k14 and 40 for a new controller totals 528.00, i would gladly pay the 15.00 dllr difference plus tax for everything to be brand new and with games that are actually great.

It comes with 4 games. Battlefield 4 and Fighter Within (which is unopened) are also included.

Thats a good deal to me? It equals 277. Id take that anyday, regardless of the quality of the games.

Didn't take region into consideration so point taken, I based it on living in north america, it all depends on what region TC lives in, if he lives in the US then I still don't think it's a good deal even if fighter within is sealed (horrible game)

Congratulations TC, as long as you enjoy it that is all that matters. :-)
