Re: The official Xbox 360 thread - the console of choice on nuclear submarines

So I went to one Target, all they had left was a single 4GB with Kinect. I have a Kinect, need more space than that, and have the games it came with. But I bought it anyway, thinking I'd be able to do something with storage. 125.xx after the discounts (they automatically rung up the 10% extra).
She called another couple stores, they didn't have any. I checked Target.com and it said another store about 10 miles away had them "in stock" (ironically, right next door to where I had dinner last night), and another store right near there had 1 left.
Went to the store, found 1 lone 500GB unit. Bought it - 85.xx after the discounts (they automatically rang up the 10% as well, and the cartwheel coupon worked again, which I was a little worried about.)
Returned the Kinect one to that store.
Driving home I realized that the store I went to, was the "1 left" store, not the 'In stock' store - so I was lucky they still had it. (And while return the 4GB one, the cashier said "Oh, I told someone we didn't have any more" so I'm glad i didn't call.)
Anyway - long story short - I got the 500Gb Forza bundle (a game I don't have, if the download code still works). And the disk drive on my current console still doesn't work. And bonus - this console is wifi, so I can pull in the thirty foot ethernet cable across my living room.

Now to work on the transfer.
Questions:
1 - I tried going to "Transfer Content -> Cloud". It shows Cloud as an option with 1.9 GB free, but won't let me select it. Does that mean there's too much content to transfer? Could be - sometimes I don't delete saves, and some games I create new every time. If so I can certainly go through and delete all but one save on all games.
2 - There are 2 active profiles on this console. Do I need to sign into each one and do them separately?
3 - i have a 4GB USB stick - can/should use that to transfer content? I theoretically could have both consoles hooked up at one time but would prefer not to have to do that. But if it makes it easier to get everything I certainly will.

edit: Or I could just make it easier. Gamestop near me has a transfer cable for 15$, I'll just try to borrow one from a neighbor or buy that one.

Do you have a Gold subscription? That's required for cloud storage. Maybe that's it.

I do have Gold, for at least another couple weeks.
I borrowed a transfer cable. Took about an hour an a half to transfer but I have a fully working console again.
Now to hunt down a second guitar since my backup one died a while back...

Nice. I need a new 360 too. My disc drive has to have a disc in at all times to work and now the controllers are constantly disconnecting.

From gog forums:
xbox.com has some DLCs for Xbox360 games that just turned free.

SSX: Classic Character Pack DLC
Dragon Age: Origins: Awakening DLC
Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam DLC

Noticed a couple other free DLCs in those games.

The 360 was discontinued more than 2 years ago, so you're unlikely to find a new one in stores.

There are some on Amazon that still have some Retail-new-in-the-box systems but they're asking what you can get a XB1 for. Lots of used offers and even that model they came out with that looks like a XB1...Xbox 360-E or something like that. Appears the used prices are in the $70-$90 range. I still have my Elite Model.

I’m kind of tempted just in case my current 360 ever RRODs.

That sucks. The 360 I used for Rock Band parties does the same thing with not reading discs, but it'll usually succeed after 10 or so tries.

And yes, it should charge fine while the 360 is off.

eh, i actually downloaded the one game i want to play and it plays fine. Chronicles of Riddick: Dark Athena which has the one i really want in Escape from Butcher Bay. after that i'll probably un-hook and that'll be that. the one game (probably) that is not bc. oh well. i'll play, finish and that's it. no harm no foul. and i think the batteries are bad, bc i have the rechargeable packs and a dual charge, but they don't hold a charge. i have the wire and bought a new charger, so for $10, i'll manage. thanks.

title of the video should be "the last Xbox 360 MODEL ever made..." but y'know... clickbait.



A nice retrospective of the last version released. I have the black one, not this fancy-ass blue one. It still works great, honestly, and I use it from time to time to play games that never got supported by the Xbox One or Series X. Still need to finish The Saboteur!

I had two 360ís. My first one got the Red Ring of Death. Replaced it with an Elite model and as far as I know it still works. Itís been years since Iíve played it though.

I had the license plate MS XB 360, when we got a new car last year my wife didn't want the plate to switch over, "because it's childish".
And couple of friends and I had a short lived podcast where we took a look back on the 15 years of the 360. Wasn't very entertaining to listen to, but we had a lot of fun recording the episodes.
