    Hi, I just got a 360 and made the mistake, in my opinion, of buying COD 4 firrst. Don't get me wrong, it's a great game I just think I shouldv'e spent about $60 (what cod cost me) and tried to get some cheaper, older games. (Gears, rainbow vegas 1, etc) My question is does anyone know a good place to buy xbox games relatively cheaply. It can be a website, store anything.

    Hmm...try eBay?

    For good old titles you can check out the Xbox 360 essentials topic.

    I recommend Condemned.

    When you hit 100 posts you will have access to our trade forum. There is WTB, WTS ands WTT (want to buy, sell, trade).
    May be worth making a topic stating you want to buy 360 games. I'm sure you'll get a few offers from our members, 25% (average) of which are USA based [​IMG]

    Ebay, obviously, and also used games bins at your local game stores. May even find brand new stuff in some of them. Over here at GAME store you can get most early 360 releases from £5 upwards.
    I highly recommend Condemned: Criminal Origins, which was a launch title and is a really excellent experience, one of my favourite games on the 360 to this day (play at night in the dark with the sound jacked up). The second game Condemned 2: Bloodshot just released over there also!

    Why not look into modding your Xbox 360 console?

    All xbox games are roughly the same price, all the good ones anyway. You should mod the unit.

    i wouldnt go as far as modding with a chip. just flash it, lot easier IMO. and plus, just download then burn the game and enjoy.

    I was gonna tell you to import, but you're not from Yurop, so...
    Try some local shops, and as it's been said before, you might get interesting deals from ebay

    Great games you can buy. Kameo $20 at most new. Marvel ultimate alliance, again under 20. ummmm..... not sure how much crackdown is going for, but also worth looking at. Just call your local gamestop, they always have weekly specials on used and new games.

    I also recommend eBay, since there can be some really great deals on old, preowned games. One of my first games I got for my 360 was Oblivion on eBay. It was the collector's edition and came with a strategy guide for $15!

    Even though you can flash the drive with custom firmware to run backups, you can pretty much kiss Xbox Live goodbye.
