Xbox 360 20GB Refurbished Blast from the Past System Bundle
Haven't owned a console for many years. Last console I owned was a PS1. Mostly a computer gamer. This deal was to good to pass up and seemed like the right time to get an Xbox 360 with 20 gig hd, 6 games, and wireless controller for $139. I was concerned it may or may not come with HDMI. I was happy mine had it. So far its performed flawlessly. I've never had an Xbox so it took me a minute to figure out how to sync the controller. The key was to press and release the sync button on the console, then HOLD the sync button on controller till it syncs. Most instructions I could find did not mention holding anything just press and release. So happy when I figured it out. This is a wonderful machine. Thank you gamestop. Ill probably pick up another controller and some more games from gamestop soon.
Did not work
My son has been playing PS3 for awhile now and has mentioned that many of his friends are on XBOX. I saw this deal and felt that i could get him a second system for his birthday. I ordered the system and paid for the fastest shipping. It arrived fast, pretty much the next day. Upon opening, i noticed that two of the games cases were cracked. Okay, no big deal. i hooked up the system to find that there were major software issues. When it didn't freeze, I was downloading the same update over and over again. After 4 and a half hours of my son being extremely disappointed and melting down we gave up. Happy Birthday!! I returned the package and bought a new 250gb xbox 360. After all was said and done it cost me 2 and a half times the amount i wanted to spend. This would be a good deal if it had worked. I will never buy another refurbished product again.
It's a Good Buy.
Alright, so I bought it, came in a couple days later. So as your probably doing, I was reading through the comments to see if it was worth it/Upsides and downsides to it/complaints people had. It arrived finally and what some people said about it not having an HDMI Outlet was wrong, I got one with an HMDI outlet and once I plugged it up it played perfectly. (Using Black Ops 2 as a reference point since it's relatively new/many play it) It ran the game without any trouble except the motor was a little noisy but besides that, It was perfect. Came with the games and a controller. The games were barely smudged and only some small wearing on one or two (I smudged them more just handling and looking at them). The controller wasn't sticky and the buttons weren't hard to press, was just like your best friends controller you like to use when you come over. Overall I'm happy with the purchase and I'd recommend it to those who wanna get back into playing xbox but don't have the money to shell out 200$+ For a slim or for the new/casual player.
We were very excited to receive it, and we received the original white console and six games. Had to troubleshoot over and over to get it to not freeze-up. Tried everything Xbox support said....keeps freezing up. I am calling our local store and I really hope we can exchange it. Otherwise, when it is not frozen, it's an awesome console....but not worth the hassle if not functioning properly. Very frustrating to not be able to save where you are and having to reset to play. :(
I'm in love!
I ended up buying this package a couple of weeks ago, and I only paid $128 total for all of it. It is such an amazing deal! It makes for a great starter package for a new gamer. The games are all great even though they take up most of the memory on the hard drive. I suggest buying a bigger hard drive if you plan to buy more games. I couldn't be more happy with my purchase and I'm absolutely in love with my Xbox. It is in perfect condition. The controller that came with also works great, and none of the games have any large scratches. I recommend this to everyone!

I've been a loyal customer to you guys for many many years. Recently I've just bought a refurbished xbox-360 at the store and had it sent to my house. The Gamestop employee told me these xboxes would work and got me really excited for my purchase. Went I got it an turned it on, right away it gave me the red rings.
I went back into the Gamestop to exchange it. The employee said yes and did the exchange for another refurbished xbox360. He too was very helpful and got me excited. I asked if I was able to turn it on and see if it works at the store but he said "Just try it at home and just come back if it doesn't work".
Right away when I got home, I plugged it in and powered it on. Right away I got the red rings and this new refurbished xbox sounded worse because the fan was too loud. The HHD takes up too much power for the xbox which gives it the error code. When I don't have the HHD it works but I need memory for the xbox to even upload my gamertag.
2 refurbished xboxes. Both not working. It's not right for you guys to ship me a broken x-box, then exchange it, and promise me it would work.
not happy withat my purchase.
This thing is a good deal but I wish my stuff would actually work. Some of my disks had cracks in them and the x box has trouble reading the disks I play newer games and it still says it can't read the disk, I'll be playing and in the middle of the game it says it can't read the disk. I have never had a xbox not work like this. I mean I know it's pre owned but I thought everything would atleast work! And my controller the trigger didn't work it was just a bunch of horribleness in a box I try to make it work buts it's like it's getting worse I'm not very happy.
Just to clear this up
For all the people saying the system doesn't come with an HDMI port, they are not wrong and its the same with the people who says it does. Gamestop sends them out randomly so you might get one with or without an HDMI port. Unfortunately i ordered this without doing my research and got one without and wound up returning it. This bundle is a great value so if you don't mind getting a 360 with just the AV port then i would reccomend this. But if you can't do without the HDMI then you are better off just buying an individual system that you know for sure has one.
AT first we got it and it froze a few times, after about 20 minutes it didn't freeze. But it had this really loud noise i think it was the fan. we go one without a hdmi so i called gamestop and they happily took the xbox back and gave me one with an hdmi. THe madden13 also froze and i took that back and got a new one. however the controller didn't work so i went back and got a different one and it had sticky analog sticks i took it back and got a different one but i am finally happy
Y'all must b crazy
Lemme just start off by saying I have wanted a bundle like this 4 the past 2 years. This is one of the best deals I have ever seen on GameStop. My Xbox 360 Arcade's laser just burned out, and I was in need of some new games to add on to my old games and a new Xbox 360. This has some of the classics, along with a refurbished Xbox. Hands down, one of the best deals here.
