    They look real to me... and hey, at the store, they cost 120 bucks + tax, so that's a little cheaper. Although shipping takes like 2-3 weeks...

    Yeah, Well I wouldn't bother buying one from there. They're about $128 at a store, and you don't have to wait. Plus you know that you're getting quality hardware.

    I'm kinda interested in the 120GB Xbox 360 HDD

    After pointing that out, it reminded me of a DSi. But more like a random black blob...

    @ War ~ Yea, You know that are new. But I was just wondering, I only pointed this out because I remember reading something about stolen DS Lites or somethin...

    @ Awdof ~ 120GB Xbox 360 HDD... If I buy one of these... And then I buy a X-Box 360 Arcade, wouldn't that just make my X-Box 360 a pro? Unless they have special differences... As from what I know, it's just the HDD that makes the difference... Aside from the colour of the X-Box.

    Yeah basically the only difference between the consoles is the HDDs. Plus a few freebies comes with the Pro/Elite, like 3 Months Xbox Live, headset, and component cables.

    Edit: I just bought an HDMI cable, and it looks real nice

    refurbished means that they had to polish it up and isn't techniqually new.

    For people in the states its a shitty deal, but some locations it costs like 200$ if not more for a new DS

    The thing that surprises me most is that the info on the back isn't a sticker (like nearly all fakes, and fake cases, have...) So maybe they are real. Was the AUD still high as it was 6 months ago: this would definately be worth it as they sell for around 180AUD in Australia..

    They're fake most likely. Fake DSs don't look much different from their real counterparts. They even function pretty much the same.

    This is a pretty good deal for anyone where DS systems are really expensive. (~180 USD in Russia, for example)

    They aren't fake. They are refurbished however, so that explains the lower price.
