After getting games such as: Grand Theft Auto IV, Fable 2, Saints Row, Project Gotham 4 and a handful of other games I decided it was time to get to playing! After a few weeks of playing I didn't notice any difference, as the guy at Play n Trade told me if its going to fail it usually fails within the months following the repair, and they gave me a return policy to reflect that. After the euphoria of the system wore off I used it off and on, mostly off, for the next 2 years.
When I was going through a lot of heavy anxiety I used my 360 quiet often and I was worried if it was going to fail it would fail then, but it didn't. So I once again packing it away for a few months, trading in the comforts of running people down in fast cars in GTA IV, in favor of the Goodwill Outlet store. Surprisingly enough, these two merged in the fact that I found a few things for the 360 at the Goodwill Outlet store.
The first thing I found was an official 360 controller, white, missing the battery pack. Later I found not only a loose battery pack, with Xbox hologram, but I also later found the charging cable. But those are packed away, so for the purpose of today's post I will be posting the 3 most recent pick ups for the 360 that I've found, including one very important tool that may save my 360's life.
After a while I decided it was time to pull out the 360 and check some of the things I found for it, mainly the controller. So I booted up GTA and went off into the world, when suddenly the screen turned into a rainbow and the system refused to respond. It was dead, again!
Well the 360 once more was packed in the box and put into the closet, fearing I would never use it again I decided to cut back on 360 finds, unless it was stuff I simply couldn't pass up. The first thing I found was a demo copy of MotoGP 2006, it was loose in a sleeve and I figured it wouldn't cost much so I may as well pick it up. I checked to make sure the disc was in good shape, which it was, so from there I just wanted my 360 to function so I could check it out!
In the past I've found a handful of 360 games at the Goodwill Outlet, most of which turn out to be cracked or scratched beyond repair, otherwise these are the only 360 related items I've found within the bins. So far the Intercooler seems to be doing a good job, its SUPER loud and sucks air through the system like a Hoover. Sadly only time will tell when I will need to pack the system away for it's final rest, which I fear will be very soon, but it has given me at least the $50 investment to have it repaired worth of enjoyment.
