Every once in a while a deal comes along that we can’t help but pass on to you guys, not because we want you to take advantage of it. In fact its quite the opposite. We want you to avoid not buying a $100 refurbished Xbox from Game Stop at all costs.

Don’t get us wrong were all for getting our music, video, and gaming on without having to spend a grip but as with all things purchased in your local 5 and Dime this smells like a giant setup.

For starters purchasing anything used is already a gamble. Then add the uncertainty of purchasing a refurbished gaming console with just a 90 day warranty and you’ve got yourself a disaster waiting to happen. Sure it’s an operational Xbox 360 with a 20 GB harddrive included, but how long will it stay that way.
