DAMMIT!

I have Blue Dragon I want to finish, and I'm getting Crackdown 2 as well!

So I have a dilemma....Spend extra now to avoid waiting several months, or ummmm, wait several months ~_~

Oh X-box 360, why did you have to RRoD on me?

It hasn't been confirmed whether or not its the same console though, at least HDD wise. If you want the 250 GB harddrive, just buy it now. This version is most likely similar to the Arcade or has something like a 50 GB harddrive. Or just buy the 'old' Elite for $250 and save yourself $50, sorta.

Ugh, I might have to sell my current 360 and buy the slim just because it looks that much better than the original and the black glossy finish goes well with my tv, ps3, blu ray player, and entertainment center stand.

Thank you for reassuring me

Yes, perhaps I'll just get it now. It would work out to roughly $1 a day between now and the $199 one.

I still have to decide on the file transfer thing (my method hinges on employees being helpful....)

Do you have some flash drives lying around? You can just stick the important stuff on flash drives, and just re-download the rest.

That's what the people who are trading their old 360 in for the new one at Gamestop are doing.

Or you could take your Xbox apart and do RRoD fix, it's not that difficult to do. You can get repair kits on Ebay for $10-$20, and it would buy you some time while you wait for the new $199 360 to come out.

@Moonrise ps3 and a bluray player? Someone likes to spend money

I can definitely wait until it drops in price. Just sell the one I use later on.

I'm really not good at building/fixing stuff, as evidenced by the fact it took me like 8 hours of labor to finally put my computer together, a job that should only take like an hour at most ~_~

My method is to use a USB transfer, but requires the use of the EB's 360 (putting my HDD on it), since mine is dead and I dunno anyone else around that has one.

The Blu Ray player was a purchase for the family when I'm gone so they can watch Blu Ray movies w/o the PS3. It also has Netflix streaming which is actually really nice (we bought it before the PS3 had Netflix streaming capability).

Another thing you could do is buy a Xbox 360 Hard Drive Transfer Kit from the Microsoft Store

Or if you get desperate you can try the towel trick with the RRoD 360, put it in a box or wrap it up and then run it untill it overheats, this should reset it, and may get it working long enough to transfer your save files.

The HDD transfer kit costs money and I have to wait for it. Also, the problem with it is it requires you to always be signed in to use the stuff you bought on the store (the stuff you transferred over).

Microsoft allows you to transfer your account license to a new console once a year.
When My 360 got E-74, the replacement console they sent didn't have my license like it was supposed to, so I had to transfer it. It's pretty simple to do.

No matter what you do, if you get a new 360 you are probably going to have to transfer your license, unless you don't mind having to be signed in to Live all the time .

Hope this helps, I just thought you might want to know what all your options are.

Thanks for the info, but that still wouldn't solve the problem of save files.

I was reading a article that said they were going to sell the old xbox 360's for a way lower price. So if you do decide to buy and old one instead then all the older versions of the xbox 360 will be alot lower in prcie and I may buy one myself now that the price is going to lower.
