yea, i could see it working OK for a couple games, but any game (especially online) where a lot of cues for gameplay actually come from positional sound, you'd be pretty hindered... that cup looks like it would isolate pretty well, which is exactly what you wouldnt want.

No trees were harmed forming this post, though many electrons were inconvenienced.

Why jump to that conclusion? I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but I can think of a whole list of reasons why a 360 would need to be repaired. For instance:
  • Bad video port
  • Bad ethernet port
  • Bad HDMI connector
  • Bad hard drive
  • Bad optical drive
  • Bad power button
  • etc, etc...

4mo warranty. Better to spend the extra $100 and buy one new and get the full warranty from MS.

True, I was jumping the gun a bit.

*If* their $50 2 year replacement plan is any good, then it "might" be worth it for some people

Buy one, get one $20 off at Toys R Us this week ($39.99+ games) . Not that great, but if you're in the market for 2 games, might be worth it.

question tronn, do I have to purchase the wireless adapter to get the wireless headset to work? I have the older 360 without HDMI.

The wireless adapter is for connecting to wifi networks. The wireless headset connects directly to the 360, the same way a controller does.

All Arcades come with a memory unit. The Jasper chipset had extra built in ram, thus people would NOT qualify for the HDD upgrde program that MS had (for the NXE) (expired a few months ago). The non-jasper chipset qualified for the upgrade program (but it still came with the 256M card) so in essence was perhaps a better deal depite the higher power usage. Also, it doesn't say if it is the holiday bundle, thus either they are very old, or extremely new. My suspicion is that it MIGHT be very old, as they have a wired controller in the picture(all the recent arcades have wireless controllers). Getting no taxes, free shipping and holiday bundle for $199 at Amazon might still be a better deal. Also Dell frequently has 20% off deals (Thus Arcade would be $159 +taxes) as an alternative option.
