Old stock or bad advertising?

360 Core for sale

One of our readers, Fox1, spotted an interesting advert in the most recent edition of NAG magazine… According to the advert you can pick up a Xbox 360 core unit with one wired controller, one wireless controller and a copy of PGR4…

Now the question is whether or not the Core in question is actually an Arcade with a wired controller or are we looking at old or refurbished stock with a free wireless controller?

We posted previously about Microsoft selling repaired consoles as new in Europe and I was of the opinion then that it was okay IF it was clearly marked as a second hand console.

Take the above offer for example, Xbox 360 console (R1999), Wireless Controller (R350) and PGR4 (R499) which means you are saving R849 making the console itself a miniscule R1150…. I’d pay that for a repaired console with a full warranty…

I have emailed Incredible Connection to see if I can get a response from them…

    wow, R1150 hey, not bad, but you never know if that RROD will return with vengeance…

    RROD is never a problem… it takes one phone call and a car trip to swap it out.

    When my 2006 pro RROD’ed it took me 2 hours to get a new console in my lounge.

    I know some people have had issues, but if you stay calm and use small words you can get almost anything sorted ASAP.

    If the heatsink in it is the one from the Falcon design then no more RROD 😎

  • It’s probably the Arcade and they messed up the ad, hence the on e wireless and one wired controllers, but you never know.
