He probably just bought it to take the drive out. People like that should get beaten up.

He didn't have to buy it just so he can take the drive out and then return it so that the store now has to take a loss to re-sell it. This is one of the reasons some stores are now not selling xboxes. All he had to do is buy better media!

how is it a loss to re-sell it? somebody buys it not knowing any better. the xbox still does it's every day functions without a glitch. the end-user is not affected in any way. how's that bad? we just know how to beat the system, get what we want, take no names, and ask for none in return. dog eat dog world, but in this case, nobody's hurt or out anything.

Obviosuly you don't know what stores do to returned electronics, specially the Xbox since MS doesn't take units from stores, even though people take some back claiming to be defective. Stores either have to sell them with a loss at their stores, or sometimes they sell them to re-sellers who sell them as "used" status. But once they are returned, stores cannot sell them as new. When mod chips were causing a huge amount of xboxes to break, many people tried to take them back to stores and when stores tried to take them back to microsoft, microsoft knew it was modchips who was causing this and began to tell stores that MS will no longer take back their systems and they told stores that no 1 xbox has ever been defective because they are tested before they leave the factory, therefore many stores just started to stop selling xbox, such as toys R us and some others. This was along time ago too.

Even if the xbox was to be sold as new, I would not want to pay new price on a xbox which was opened and messed. I'm sure nobody would, so instead of ruining it for stores and buyers, why not just buy better media, or are you just an A55hole?
