On those 20GB refurbs from FS, check the manufacturing date first....at least make sure that it's a Falcon.....14.x amps on the label above the MADE IN CHINA.

Just bought the $129 Arcade console with a Jasper....manufacturered in Oct xx 2009. My Xenon from 2006 has been acting up lately.

I picked up a Jasper Arcade today, manufactured Dec 30, 2009, so it's a relatively new build. Seems as though thr $129 price is all retailers as I just saw an MS ad stating the $129 price until March 19th. Pretty darn good price for a 360 in my opinion.

If anyone is interested, Eb Games has a promo right now where you can trade in an old Xbox 360 and get an additional trade-in credit of $75 on top of the $35 trade value when buying a new console. In essence, you can trade in any old (must be working) Xbox 360 for a new Arcade version and only have to pay an additional $20. You only need to include the console, a/v cables, power supply, and 1 controller. You can keep everything else including HDD's. I just did it today with the refurb I bought at FS for $99. Nice way to upgrade to a new Jasper.

Hi, so what is the advantage of a Jasper system?
If I did this deal would it mean I get a new warranty too?

My xbox is three years old. This seems like a pretty cheap way to buy a new one.

macemuscle, best I can do is post a link to a pic of the flyer. Link.

Charlie3133, Jaspers have much less chance of failure due to RROD and are considered the highest quality systems you can get. And yes, you get the normal 1 year express/3 year RROD warranty on the new system.

Read that the Falcons have failure rates of about 10%. Jaspers is reportedly at around 3%.

Can't believe that MS limited their warranty on RROD to 3 years....should be longer, if not unlimited.

Just to get a little action in here...

-2 for $40 on PS3 Greatest Hits this week @ Best Buy (I'm picking up God of War Collection and Killzone 2)
-Bioshock 2 (PS3/Xbox360) for $40 @ Futureshop
-Xbox360 Elite Bundle for $299 (normal price) with 5 extra games (Stranglehold, Mirror's Edge, Jericho, Prince of Persia and Fable 2) @ Futureshop
-$40 for 12 month Xbox Live subscription @ Both

Also, while not a AAA deal, I found several sealed copies of X3: Gold Edition for $10 at my local EB Games in Whitby. It is a great game if you are into space combat sims and that is a great price for it, especially still sealed at EB. I went to the counter with the roughed up box from the shelf thinking that's what I would get priced @ $30 but when the CSR looked it up she said it was only $10 and reached behind the counter where I saw several sealed copies.
