How to get a very cheap Xbox 360 Elite

IGN named the Xbox 360 as the sixth greatest console ever released. Microsoft announced that Xbox is only half way through its life cycle and that they think it will run on into 2015. If you want to get your hands on a very cheap Xbox 360 Elite, it's probably best to go for a second hand one.

Although it is a bit riskier, you can save a good bit of money. Buying new from most places will cost around £180 to £210. By buying second hand you could easily find one for half that price. Look in newspapers or online and you will find one in no time.

If you are unsure, you can buy second hand consoles that come with a year long warranty, making your purchase a lot safer. If you don’t need the warranty, places like eBay and Gumtree are good places to look. Game are currently selling the Elite 120GB with a controller for £99.98 and this comes with a year's warranty. Game are very good at selling pre-owned consoles, and are very good if something goes wrong. They will fix it or replace faulty consoles.

Buying on eBay and Gumtree will save you a bit more money. But as you're buying off private sellers, the console won’t come with a warranty. If you do buy off eBay or Gumtree, ensure you check that the console is working and able to read disks before you buy. You can’t tell from looking at a picture whether the Xbox is in good working order. Most of the sellers on theses sites are legitimate, but there are a few people out to scam your money - so be careful.
