    Xbox 360 - what's it worth?

    Hi,
    I have an Xbox 360 premium which I'm thinking of selling to fund an Elite. Comes with all the cables, never modded etc.What's it worth? Where's the best place to sell it?

    Cheers...

    What do you gain with the elite? apart from the fact it is black?

    If it's HDD capacity then you can upgrade the normal one using a specific WD drive

    I'll ask my brother what the exact model number is, i think it's one of the scorpio's

    i'll try and did out the links he sent me

    it basically involves using a program designed for that certain drive to change the firmware

    edit: i think this is it: http://www.gamerwok.com/archives/786 model number: WD1200BEVS

    Re: Xbox 360 - what's it worth?

    you wont get much for a premium
    i sold mine on the bay yesterday for £125 delivered with 6 old games that i'd only paid a few quid each for.

    so my upgrade to an elite cost me £140 and i got 4 new games with it.

    although noticed after selling that ebay charge 10% fees for technology items so sold a few bits totalling £250 and between paypal and ebay lost £33 in fees

    Re: Xbox 360 - what's it worth?

    its alot of work (ive been told) and not really worth it regarding the harddrives

    what chipset you got on the 360? and why the elite? what does it provide your 360 doesnt provide now?

    120gb is about £80

    If I was upgrading my xbox I'd be more concerned about whether it's a Jasper/Falcon etc. As far as I know the Elites are old models.

    Re: Xbox 360 - what's it worth?

    I've been tempted to do this myself but in the end i decided the elite wasn't worth it. Maybe if i was buying new i would get an elite but i wouldnt replace what ive got for it.
