    My cousin is planning to trade in the following in Gamestation:
    • Wii console
    • Wii Play
    • Classic Controller
    • Mario Kart Wii (with Wheel)
    • Guitar Hero Aerosmith (Wii with guitar)
    • Warioware Smooth Moves
    • DS Lite Silver
    The total price of all of these things (the price he used is the price when he bought those) is a whopping £480. He wants to get:
    • Xbox 360
    • VGA Adapter
    • Guitar Hero 3 (with the guitar)
    • Guitar Hero Aerosmith (Game only)
    • 3-4 more games
    D'you reckon he's making the right decision?

    No, not because I love the Wii or anything like that... The Xbox360 is PLAGUED wit hardware failures. He will need to get a good extended warranty. The red ring of death is bad and the only recourse is repair or rebuy... no warranty means major net loss.

    He should just sell it on ebay, since trading it in will most likely only get him like 1/3 of what it's worth.
