    Okay, today I went to the beach, while I was coming back I saw a 360 ( console, Premium ), A Control, and Gears of Wars ( WOO ). I bought some cables in radioshack... And it turns out it had the red ring of death. Though what I plan on doing is sending it to microsoft to getting it repaired! So basically I got 450$ worths of stuff for free!

    Not on the beach it was on the side of the street.... I was driving home and I saw it. Stopped the car ( obviously, who jumps out of the window? ) Picked it up and ran away. It was with a bunch of garbage.

    Still the question remains: who just throws their 360 away?

    Great find though. It's like winning the videogame lottery.

    You ever seen that movie called The Game?

    Maybe there's a camera inside watching your every move, and there's a receiver embedded and plugging the XBOX in will have a newscaster tell you "Welcome To The Gayme".


    Happened to me with a soldering iron once...

    that's a shame - very good movie. One of my favorites.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Game_(film)

    If I remember correctly, the guy finds a doll somewhere near or in his house, which seemed to contain some shit relevant to the rest of the movie (A key, a camera, ... I forgot)
    That moment signals the beginning of The Game, which is like a roleplaying game only in real life. Perhaps someone put that XBOX360 out there for you to find, and it will mark the beginning of your own Game. Or maybe it just contains hidden crack and a perp threw it out of his car as cops chased him.. which is even better!

    I was gonna say I was surprised you were having trouble finding a 360 in stores, never heard of them being hard to find [​IMG]

    but finding a 360 on the street, with a game and controller no less is pretty rare [​IMG]
    I only ever see couches on the side of the street [​IMG]

    Wow, would you have to buy the warranty for repair? If not, I'm gonna scout for trashed 360 around beaches!

    No, because of microsofts NEW 3 YEAR WARRANTY [​IMG]. All 360s are covered until 2008.

    Yeah, the only thing I got for free, was a GB brick broken in half that I saw in front of my moms/my car.

    I'd love to encounter a Wii/PS3/360 anywhere [​IMG]

    Good luck seeing a PS3 on the streets.

    I once saw a Wii box on the street, but when I got closer to it, I noticed "Display Box". Pfft.
