    Alright, my Pro got banned last night I was like no problem as it was a late 06 console. Now my Elite got banned, so I need to get a console for Live. So if I go to Bestbuy buy an arcade console, swap the cases from my broken Pro for the Arcade? Like the new arcades top case (With serial number) I will put that on my broken pro. And then return it at Bestbuy saying its broken. Also I checked the Arcades last week ( I knew the banwave was coming ), and most of them had old MFR dates like early 08, 360drives.com says that early 08 consoles were BENQ. What are my chances of getting a BENQ?

    @ Abolfazl
    - So is downloading music from limewire but I bet my *** that you've done it before.


    @ Crank dat
    - Do it at Target NOT Best Buy because Target has a more lenient return policy. Also, remember to pay in cash so in the long run they can't trace anything.

    just a tip, once a console has been opened and retuned as broken they only swap them out for another, no refunds, so make sure you open the box carefully (so they can't tell its been opened) and just tell them you got it as a gift but already had one or some bs.

    if you do this make sure you are very careful with the case and the seal, also try to make it look like you never opend the packaging, that way you can say it was a gift and you alredy have one.

    I dont reccomend you do this but its your choice

    You could just sell them on both ebay and buy a new one

    True. But if it is a movie/cd that I really like i will buy. If all the songs but one are crap then I will not pay for it.

    This is different though. This is actually stealing. :\

    Still if you download a song or movie it's considerd "Stealing"
    no matter if you just like that on song on the cd.

    I have a Early 08 Model with a BenQ drive. It's loud as hell though.

    No mods on it except a custom faceplate.

    Before anyone considers buying from him I suggest looking at his feedback thread.
