For anyone looking for a modded console or who doesn’t care if they can connect to Xbox Live, there’s no better time to be purchasing a used Xbox. The consoles are going for as low as $90, which isn’t a bad price for something that normally retails for $200.
On the other hand, anyone wanting an unmodded console might want to avoid Craigslist, or any secondhand Xboxes right now. Some people are reporting that they purchased supposedly unmodded Xbox 360’s off of Craigslist very recently and found that they actually had been tampered with.
Microsoft is reporting that they will not extend the warranty to used Xbox 360’s, and anyone finding that they have accidentally acquired a modded Xbox are on their own. As a result of this, and of the many players that must now be looking for new consoles to replace their banned ones, Xbox 360 sales will most likely rise in the near future, especially at the holidays.
