First I want to say, I am getting a Xbox 360 and PS3 regardless of the next-gen console release date (I'm not getting a Xbone or PS4.... for now). This is for personal modding and experience with hardware and software that I want to work with. Anyways, I've found amazing deals on both of them from Gamestop, and I can't believe this but I might actually get both for under $400 (including an add-on hard drive for the 360). Xbox 360 (S) $119.99: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/co...top-premium-refurbished/107559#productDetails HDD add-on (I'd get my own 2.5in 9.5mm SATA drive but it'd wouldn't be worth it in the end since 320GB is all I need) http://www.amazon.com/320GB-Hard-Drive-Internal-Black/dp/B008FHL56S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1381475420&sr=8-1&keywords=xbox 360 hard drive PS3 $149.99: http://www.gamestop.com/ps3/consoles/playstation-3-500gb-supercharged-refurbished/90560 I'm extremely iffy on refurbished items and I wanted your opinion/thoughts on these consoles. I thought that this would be the best time to buy since they're trying to empty the stock and they've just finished making the rest of the consoles not too long ago. Since next-gen consoles are coming out, I figured they are going to get rid of them all here and now while they can. What do you guys think? Should I wait? Should I buy now? Is refurbished a bad idea? Thoughts please!
