A chap here at work has a early release 360 premium.. This has NEVER had the RLOD issue but does however have a couple of drive problems in that it can take upto 5 minutes to get a game to load up .. kind of like it isnt detecting a disc in the drive.
Now he has had enough, its not being used because he cannot be faffed with trying over and over again tp play a game.. sometimes it works fine, other times it doesnt want to know for a few minutes.
He has decided to go out and buy a new xbox.. simple as..:oh:
The question i have is that i can now pick this unit up from him, what would be a reasonable price? It would be a complete Premium kit (latest update done via Halo 3 disc) and hasnt been connected to the net before (he doesnthave B/band!:oh: ). And it would include a game or two as aprt of the deal (plus poss Halo 3 if he gets that as an additional package deal on th new one as he already has a copy!)
Now i believe that this fault isnt covered by the new extended MS warranty so i would either have to crack the unit open myself (therefore invaliadting any future warranty) or send to MS for them to fix (at more money then its worth probably!)...
Any help, advice or suggestions regarding this problem appreciated..
Also, what sort of price would you think??? i dont want to offend him but we do usually spend 4/5 days bartering over a price anyways! :lol:
plus he will let me pay him over time as i havent got much cash spare due to xmas coming, Car MOT & Tax, New Car Engine (different car), xmas holiday Break for wife as present (poss Scotland so Parris watch out!:rolleyes: ) etc..
