    Yeah, im going to buy a used 360 with games and all for just a little below 100€, but since i cant get anyone to drive me, ill have to go by bus, train and carry it in between, so i wanna know about how much it does weight and if anyone still has it, about how big the original packaging is.

    thank you

    Is it all new or used? I've carried my Xbox, controller, and games in my backpack before with no issues so it's really not heavy. I can't give you an exact estimate though since it's been a while since I've taken it out the house....

    Watch out with the Arcade's though. I've gone through 2 of 'em and so has a friend. They've had the same disk drive issues where it eventually stops opening or stops reading disks and they would heat up rather quickly when compared to my Elite. ATM, my Arcade sounds like a jet engine and only forcibly opens while my Elite and Regular Xbox are just fine -__-

    as far as i understood it, every xbox has a rather good chance of breaking, no matter how much it cost im actually just taking the chance since its so very cheap... and if it survives a few weeks for final fantasy and soul calibur 4, im probably happy enough

    "Original". I'm pretty sure there's no Slim Arcade.

    Some call the "4GB S" a arcade model.

    I have some weights of the original (non slim) xbox written down somewhere. I'll edit when I can find it.

    box + manual ~1lb. 13oz.
    oem controller + battery ~9.5oz.
    Xbox Console 7lb 2.5oz.
    Falcon power supply ~2lb 2oz.
    Zephyr power supply ~2lb 12.5oz
    Composite Cable ~6.1oz. (supplied with core/arcades)
    Composite/Component Cable ~9oz.
    3rd party 120GB HDD ~9.7oz

    I would say a Original Arcade in Box is about 12lb.

    i believe its the complete basic thing, no hard drive, only a little onboard memory

    so about 5 kilo... thats going to be a fun walk i guess
    anyway, thanks for the info
