Consoles are sold at pretty close to cost for retailers, so if you want a deal I suggest a refurbish or ebay/craigslist.

i dunno, im kinda weary of buying a refurb.... store by me has refurb 4gb for $150 with a 120 day warranty.. for an extra $50 i get a new one. gamestops warranty is only 30 days

are there any known general issues with the slim model?

Not really. When they first came out some people had negative things to say about the internal WiFi strengh, but that died out within a month. A friend of mine has a slim and is happy with it.

Best Buy. Get a $50 gift card when you buy a 360 kinect console.

ill check the best buy deal, thanks. idk if i want kinect really but if its essentially free and i can just get an extra year of gold with the rebate, why not? im expiring in sept anyway.

also, i plan on getting a 4 gb console. what's the deal with the flash drive support? i have a 4gb flash drive that i plan on using but it wouldn't format on my fat 360 when i attempted to transfer my game saves over. is there a certain type of flash drive that's compatible with the 360? i don't really need 250gb for the extra $100, i can get a 16gb flash drive for maybe 25 bucks and that should be enough for me.

You can't install games to a thumb drive, and most games are larger than 4gb, so that means you won't be able to install any games. Also, you can't play Reach co-op... or something. Dunno if that was ever patched.

Also, I think it's cheaper to buy the 4gb Slim and a seperate hard drive than it is to get the Kinect bundle.

Also, it's not "officially" possible to put a phat 360 hard drive into a Slim. It's possible, you have to open the casing, Youtube it, that's all I'm going to say.

Regardless, check Amazon. I think they have a $100 Gift Card if you buy a 360, but I don't know which model it's on.

ive heard some say its a violation of the TOU, and could get you banned, is there any official statement from microsoft saying so?
