    So I'm kind of getting sick of the whole Xbox 360 experience and I've been thinking of putting it up on Craigslist as a bundle. How much do you think I should throw it out there for?

    It would be:

    -Xbox 360 Elite w/ 120 GB HDD (Power brick and A/V cables included)
    -Rock Band 2 Guitar
    -2 Black Wireless Controllers
    -1 White Wireless Controller
    -1 Rechargeable-Battery Wire
    -2 Rechargeable batteries
    -1 White typing pad
    -1 Rock Band mic
    -1 Ethernet Cable

    As for the games:
    -Gears of War
    -Rock Band 2
    -Rock Band 3
    -Lego Rockband
    -Wall-E
    -Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2
    -Halo Reach
    -Halo ODST
    -Forza 3
    -Rock Band: The Beatles

    Do you guys even think anyone would go for it? I really don't want to mess with this system anymore and I think I'd be better off without it....

    EDIT: added an accessory and a few games....
    EDIT: yet another accessory added... I forgot I owned some of this stuff

    Somewhere in the 200.00 price range I would think you could get easy enough.

    id keep it and get some more (more recent, not music) games before you decide you are done with the 360.

    There's a bunch of great games worth playing that you dont have on that list - not to mention new games coming this year, like: L.A. Noire, Batman: Arkham City, Mortal Kombat, Duke Nukem Forever, Skyrim just to name a few im excited for.

    otherwise 200-300 USD would probably fetch a buyer.

    Thanks for the opinions. Are you sure 200-250 isn't asking for a lot????


    The reason I bought the system in the first place was so I had something in common with my friends. The games don't really interest me more and I've learned I have a better experience on handhelds. I've gone through 3 systems already and after about 3 years I don't see myself with this anymore....

    I play other games on other friends accounts and my own. I own music games because I like them and my friends don't own them, btw....

    A price break down by what I think:

    - System: $150
    - Rock Band 2 Guitar: $25
    - Controllers: $20 each
    - Rechargeable Batteries + Wire: $7 each for the packs, maybe a dollar or two for the wire
    - Typing Pad: $10
    - Gears of War: $10
    - Rock Band 2: $10
    - Rock Band 3: $15
    - Lego Rock Band: $8
    - Wall-E: $6
    - MW2: $15

    Overall: $325 by those values, probably knock that down to $290 if the person buys it all at once.

    Alrighty. I'll see what I can do with this.... Thanks.

    I added a few more things to the list also. I'm not sure if it should change how much I sell it for, though

    I think with that added, it fully justifies the bundle price of $300.

    nah , 200 - 250 is actually being quite generous considering the value of the things .
    compare it to getting an xbox now with that money .

    just an avg. 4GB Console that has no games what so ever . so probably sell it for $250+ .

    I think 240-260 and you would not have any trouble selling and that's not asking too much. Take the money and get yourself a 3ds.

    Everybody on Craigslist is looking for a deal. Don't fall into their mentality and short yourself.

    lol I'll be sure to remember that. I just want to rid it all at once but I'm afraid nobody may go for it....

    I really don't want to sell it to Gamestop either. I know for a fact they'll rip me with their Trade-in offers.

    Gamestop just might give you $150 total for everything. Not even kidding.

    Yeah I made the mistake of giving them my Gamecube and PS2 years ago while they were still new and popular at the time... Never again.

    If selling on craiglist try and keep it local and never sell internationally.. craigslist has been quite bad with international and even in state scams

    Yeah I would figure that. I'm not willing to ship or anything to anybody. I'm just trying to do a simple meet up and exchange for cash.

    At the moment I have it on there for $270

    Sounds pretty reasonable.
