Microsoft’s Xbox One console isn’t without it’s own merits, but there’s something to be said for the Xbox 360. Microsoft’s previous console still has more entertainment apps and games then either the Xbox One or Sony’s PlayStation 4, which is why the Xbox 360 deal at GameStop is so great. The online and brick-and-mortar retailer has the original Xbox 360 on sale for just $79.99.
GameStop’s $79.99 Xbox 360 sale lasts for the entire month of May. This original Xbox 360 doesn’t include support for wireless internet access and isn’t as quiet as the Xbox One. Though refurbished, these Xbox 360s will come with almost everything users need to get started. There’s a standard video cable, wireless controller and power cable all included in the box. Buyers will want to pick up a USB hard drive or flash drive for extra storage separately from the console. A game or two to play on the console isn’t a bad idea either.
That $79.99 doesn’t include sales taxes and shipping fees. Normally, a used original Xbox 360 with no extra storage would cost $99.99 at GameStop. This console is perfect for entertainment lovers who need a way to stream from services like Netflix and Hulu Plus or have Verizon and don’t want the expense of another cable box.
