Xbox 360 (S) 250GB Refurbished Blast from the Past System Bundle
So much for "refurbished"
This was supposed to be a gift for my teenage son. We got it last night, and upon opening the box, we discovered that the battery pack for the wireless controller was broken. We had to tape it on to the controller for the batteries to stay in, and get it to work. I was able to order another battery pack from another website, so, not a big deal.... but, once the system was all hooked up, my son played his 1st game for a little over an hour, then he chose to change the game disc. After he replaced the disc, the disc tray wouldn't close. It went in about 1 inch and got completely stuck! I took it to our local store, and they said they weren't able to fix it on-site. We decided to keep the games, and get a store credit for the "refurbished" game system. I think we'll stick with 'new' gaming systems from now on!
Great while it worked
I was excited when my 360 finally came in the mail, and after running to Gamestop to trade in some of the games that came with it that I already owned for other systems, I came home and set it up. Suddenly, while entering my profile information, it cuts out. Confused, I attempt to turn it back on. No dice. I unplugged the power source for a moment then plugged it back in, and it came back on...for about fifteen minutes. While it was running, everything seemed fine. It did this twice more before I finally gave up and went to Microsoft's troubleshooting page for the 360. I tried everything on their lists (including the stuff that sounded stupid), but the system continued to fail. I'm sure my case is an exception, but after waiting all this time to finally get my xbox, it would've been nice if it actually worked. The only reason my score is 2 and not 1 is that my local gamestop was nice enough to let me know that they'll replace it for me.
Pretty freaking awesome!
I absolutely love this bundle! I've wanted an xbox for a long time now, I've needed new gaming material, and this is perfect. :)The only problem I have is with the xbox itself, when I turn it on, it occasionally has some weird lines glitching across the screen, but they're gone within about ten seconds or if I start a game. Other than that, I absolutely love this!
This bundle is great. It comes with a 250 GB console and some greats games. All of the separate items combined is way more then 200$. Although this deals is amazing, one downside is that their is no controller. I don't see one, and I didn't get one either, which wasn't really a problem because I had extra controllers from another Xbox which had previously red-ringed. Maybe if it had like 1 or 2 controllers I would rate it a 10. It's still a great buy!
Unless it changed, he is just missing a controller
My package came with a controller, and because I read the other review I ordered more than I need. Everything works, had no problems. Only downside is not having all the original cases/ manuals. quite minor.
i turned on my xbox and i played for 10 minutes and the xbox shut off. i tryed to turn it on and nothing happend. i un plugged it and waited 20 minutes and tryed again i turned it on and 2 minutes later it shut off again.
