    Title.

    It has several games (mostly jrpg) that really interest me.

    What do you think?

    Tales of Vesperia, Infinite Undiscovery, and Lost Odyssey are all pretty good. There are some others such as Blue Dragon and Last Remnant which may or may not appeal to you as well. Some multiplatform titles are also cheaper on 360 if you don't already have the PS3 versions. I'd say overall it is probably worth it.

    It's worth it if you find a cheap one.

    Some older ports off great games are better on the 360 (like Bayonetta and The Orange Box)
    So go for it.

    I mean most cheap ones could possibly be a temporary red ring of death fix. I really want a RGH xbox 360. I will buy one eventually.

    Me boyfriend bought a 512 MB Arcade model.
    It's a Jasper board.
    Gave him a 60 GB harddrive I had laying around and he's happy with it.
    Only costed him 40 quid.

    Just make sure you get one that's made in late 2008 or later if you want a Phatty.
    Slims.. well, you can't really go wrong with it.

    If you're dumb enough to purchase a RROD prone machine then yeh, those are cheap.

    Ignore this guy. 3DS/Wii U lack of third party support and are shitty consoles for Shooter, Racing and Sports games for example.

    It's worth to buy a 360, but a hacked one. Make sure to don't buy old models due the lack of reliability.

    Yeah its worth it. It stills has many good exclusive games (although many are getting backwards compatibility on Xbox One)
    Just make sure to buy a slim one, the first old (like the arcade) and elite models have a very high failure rate.
    You can also hack it if you don't care about online and want free games.

    It's horrible how ill informed people are.
    Slims have the same RROD chances as Jasper phatties.
    Heck, I'm running a Falcon RGH and it's still going strong.

    The Xenons and Zephyrs (2005-early 2008 consoles) have a high chance of failing, after that, MS pretty much solved the overheating issue.
    Most of the RRODs that happened is due to people not taking care of their console.
    If you'd bang a Xbone/PS4 into a enclosed space it'll also overheat and likely die.

    I have finally bought a 360 slim (4gb model) but changed to 120gb.
    I hope it lasts a long time

    Go for it but be warned that even the Xbox 360 S model can RRoD out of nowhere, but if it's cheap, you can always get another one anyway.

    Why even bother with the WiiU. The good games it has to offer are already on the 3DS or being ported to the Switch. It's really not a console a gamer or even Nintendo fan (unless really hardcore) would care to get now.

    What MFR date is it?

    No one can really say.
    The 360 is still popular it seems.
    I guess it'll be another 5 years before Live will be offline for it.
    But seeing MS supports Live on 360 games on the One, I doubt it'll go offline.

    Again, no one really knows.

    I don't think live for the 360 will be shut down. IIRC the only reason it was on the xbox was because it was holding back the 360 with things like friend limits etc, as they killed live on the original, then the 360 started getting more stuff. Now it's pretty much just all one, it's not even a live account anymore, but a "Microsoft" account and goes across to win10 store games as well for the 2 people who actually buy shit there.

    I think the 360 is completely worth buying. I bought one, RGH'ed myself and now I've got all guitar hero DLC on there. I managed to get a new guitar hero mertalica guitar as well which is great. Auora dashboard + cover theme is great. I have also changed the APU fan speed in dashlaunch so I will get more life out of the console. Currently have some games loaded on to it that you. Ant get in XBLA anymore too. Original Xbox emulator is set up and works great too. It is a hacked dev emulator with no security checks etc so mods on original Xbox games work perfect! 100% worth it!!
