    It came out to $378.68. So I went in to get a new system again, and it turns out I had to spend another 60 bucks to buy the 2 year warranty because they terminate it after you use it.

    Isn't that retarded? = I guess that's how they make their money too... bleh. In this situation though, it's not a Best Buy thing... but a Microsoft thing with their crappy Xbox360s. Still, I thought it was convenient. Guess not, after having to shell out another 60 bucks on this unreliable yet fun system.
    M$ had extended the included warranty to 1 year (for ALL issues) prior to you buying one back in September 2007, so, technically, you gave Best Buy $60 for something that was already under warranty.

    Don't get me wrong, with a 360, I wouldn't buy one without an extended warranty.

    That's only for RRoD occurrences.

    Awesome! I figure my 360 might get the RRoD again, eventually. With the price drop, I can get 50 bucks back too

    Then again, with the same 350 dollar price tag, the 20 GB hard drive is now going to be 60 GB.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.
