Is it still worth getting an xbox 360 in 2019?

    I'd say it's worth it if you like shmups or fps. though, lost odyssey (an rpg) is pretty good. it's much better than final fantasy xiii. I haven't beaten lost odyssey (2nd disc iirc), but I beat final fantasy xiii on the 360.

    Xbox 360 is not at all a good system to play FPS games on in 2019. Not at all.

    I would recommend the RPG Final Fantasy XIII-2, but on PC if you have a high-end one. It can run at 60FPS on PC, runs at 30FPS on consoles.

    Alright so I got a 2.5k ps3 from this shady guy that said it had a disc stuck in it and he couldn't remove it because he "didn't have the internet to look it up so he just put it away" so I thought it wouldn't be hard to just open and remove it.
    Turns out he lied had tried to do it but couldn't put it all back together judging by some ribbon cables not being plugged in there was no disc either. It also looks that he lost almost all the screws for it, and the ones he left were stripped. I managed to take it apart but I don't know to put the disc drives bottom ribbon cable back in (it was already out) and the video guides i found all have a similar but a little different ps3 slim that doesn't even have that cable under the disc drive.

    This probably a different problem so I think I'll post it as a new thread too.

    PS3’s have a force eject. No power to console. Press and hold eject. Connect power, console will turn on and force eject on the disk. That’s all people have to do instead of taking apart the console.

    The ribbon cable will have a perfect fold and line up to a connector on the motherboard. These connectors will have latches on to clip the cable in place so make sure not to break it

    Ok thanks, I figured It out. The whole disc drive seems to have a different problem though, When I try to put a disc into it, it makes sounds but doesn't take it in, there seems to be a part that's blocking the disc from inserting.

    I can put it over that part but it will just get stuck and not even force eject it.

    The part behind it does move up and down independently.

    The top part of the disc drive fits well with it.
