    So I'm thinking about buying a 360 and later Halo Reach. I was looking at the slims being that they actually have internal wifi (like they should have had from the get go). I guess my question is, will I have any issues getting the 4GB version? Is that plenty of space to play games on live?

    I'm trying not to spend too much money. Where could I find the best deal on a 360 that actually includes a suitable warranty?

    4 GB will go very quickly.

    Even if I don't download demos and such? I'm not very familiar with 360s...

    Are you going to be downloading content? Add-ons and Map packs?

    Yea, I saw that earlier today. I guess I should get the 250GB. I'm trying to find one cheap that is still new and unopened. It would be like $460 at Best Buy if I bought the 360 and Reach, but I'd get a $20 gift certificate.

    So what if I just bought an Arcade for cheap. Could I just throw in an Xbox 360 20GB HD I have?

    Ouch! What kind of sales tax do you pay? We pay 6% in Michigan and it would only be $424 for the Reach bundle.

    Nope. The old 360 HD is not compatible with the 360 slim. :(

    My bad! I meant $360. That's for the console and the game separate, not the package. I already have a controller and don't need another.

    And I was talking about the regular arcade, not the slim one.

    I think my sales tax is 6.25%. The sales tax of the county over is the highest in the country.

    For the price of a regular arcade or close to it you can get a used Elite off of Craigslist.

    I'm getting the Reach bundle next month. I'm such an upgrade whore. :cool:

    Last time I bought a used 360 it died on me just outside of the warranty period.

    Ouch. My first 360 was the Halo 3 special edition. My brother is till using it. I have a 120GB Elite right now. Never had any problems with either. Knock on wood.

    The Elites are still covered for 3 years by the way.

    So if I buy a used Elite, make sure the warranty sticker is still in tact?

    Yeah, and look at the manufacture date.
