Buying (another) Xbox 360...refurbished Slim?

#1Mrbl0nde000Posted 7/19/2013 2:29:22 PM
Hey guys I was wondering if I could get some advice on buying an Xbox 360.

I previously bought a refurbished original (white) Xbox from Gamestop and it came with a 20 GB hard drive. After about two years, it got the red ring and because I can't seem to fix it I am going to purchase another one. I plan on getting Battlefield 4 and GTA V when they come out, so I will also be purchasing a bigger hard drive. Hopefully this will be my last Xbox that I have to buy.

My options are pretty much between buying a new Xbox 360 Slim and a new hard drive from like Best Buy or something, or trying my hand at another refurbished Xbox, but this time get a refurbished Slim and get a refurbished hard drive.

Basically, is it worth spending like $50 - $75 less for a refurbished Xbox Slim and refurbished hard drive (assuming I can find them that is).

Also, Amazon is currently showing a year of Xbox Live at $46. If anyone knows where I can find cheaper I would be very grateful.

It's worth spending $50-$75 more to not buy a used console
