I would not buy anything if there is a chance your father is going to hit it with a hammer.

If your gf's cousin had a RROD(Red Ring of Death) (3 Red rings around the power button) then dont buy it. Even if he sent to Microsoft. Rumor is that when M$ gets the broken console, they just open it up and put everything back together. Rumor. Just buy a new one. You will be satisfied either way.

Its worthy getting it. I had the core system(duh..) and played Gears of War all teh time. Than decided to give it to someone.
Maybe I will get a phone contract with free X360 arcade system. I still have my Gears of War game and 20 gig harddrive

This isn't true. They either send you an entirely new system or replace the broken part (usually a flexed motherboard) and add an additional heatsink to combat it from hapening again. Plus you are still under warranty 'til almost 2010 even if you buy a used one since they extended the 3rlod to 3 years and the system came out in late 2006.

They do NOT send New consoles. They Send you Refurbished consoles.

If I didn't own a 360 already and could not find a better deal, I'd get it.

ZeWarrior is right and the replacement is also covered by the three year warranty.

Right, I meant new as in a totally different console than yours. Like a new console, not the one you sent them..new to you.
The refurbed ones have a new heatsink so are better.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
