Honestly, not even trolling, it's a serious question. There's working Ataris and NESs today, because they had such simpler hardware therefore less things that could go wrong, but it seems like a 360 can't make it past the 3-5 year mark... I've gone through 3 already, my 4th is currently dying. First one lasted less than a year, refurb was dead out of the box, next refurb worked extremely poorly before dying after a week.

I have a feeling they'll be scarce about 5 years after they cease production, and prices for used consoles will go up.

Look, prices are at an ALL TIME low, by the end of the fiscal year, gems will be the hot commodity, ESPECIALLY........... ESPECIALLY DURING THE HOLIDAY

I'll probably buy a couple for experimentation, once they're really cheap. I've had the same box since 07, now, just needs a good dusting now and then.

I imagine that <eventually> it will be more and more difficult to find them.

However, with as many consoles being currently produced as there are, I think it'll take longer than five years for them to begin being difficult to find or expensive.

Well, much like the Dreamcast by the time games and reliable 360 consoles become hard to find proper pc emulation will ensure that we can enjoy 360 games regardless...

I'll do what I did with the first xbox.

buy a brand new one right at the end of its life, make sure it works, and put it away.

figure thats my best chance of having a working one down the line, and my old ones still work today.

seems like they live forever after they "retire" almost like there is no reason to enable the killswitch.
