Decided to have our very first Xbox 360 repaired (for the red ring of death), so I visited a local Radio Shack store that advertises Xbox repairs. That 360 didn’t have wireless or an HDMI port, but I thought it was good enough for my daughter to have in her campus apartment with a hardline net- we’re planning on getting Destiny for both her and my 360, so we can play together (I’ll have it for the X1 too.).

Back to Radio Shack… While discussing our old 360, the tech asked “why not just trade it in for one they have on the shelf – same cost as the repair.” I said sure… so he pulled it off the shelf, and then apologized that it was an unattractive green and that it had a graphic of Halo 3 and Bungie on its side… Sitting in front of me was a limited edition Halo 3 Xbox 360… I said sure, the color’s OK, lets make the trade. We tested it – tested fine. Daughter’s pretty stoked! Halo 3 is her alltime favorite game.

Sweeeet! Doesn’t that crazy man know anything?!! I like how you kept your cool and played it off like it was no biggy, lol. Don’t want to make him change his mind and take it back!

Nice! I got my Original Halo xbox when a customer brought one into Gamestop to trade but we were unable to take it because it had been opened and the Microsoft seal was broken, I gave him $10 less than the trade value.

Daughter got it yesterday, but won’t get connected to XBL till maybe Friday. She needs to visit the IT department on campus so they can log the MAC address. I bought her that Gamestop Halo used game collection a few weeks ago (Halo 3, ODST, Reach, H4) – a deal at just $18.95 for the four games.

Still don’t know why the Radio Shack guy wanted to trade our broken non WIFI and non HDMI 360 for one that had both, just for the cost of repair.  Smiles all around.
