Cash-strapped game junkies can score a refurbished Xbox 360 Premium console for just $219.99, plus a very reasonable 10 bucks for shipping. That's a pretty solid deal considering that it sells for $350 new.
The Premium version of the mega-popular game system includes a wireless controller, a 20GB hard drive, and a headset. Reseller Blue Bay Electronics doesn't specify the warranty period, but based on other Xbox refurbs I've seen, it's probably 60 days (you should definitely check with the company before ordering).
In addition to playing kick-ass games, the Xbox 360 supports movie and TV-show downloads via Xbox Live. Plus, it can double as a media-center extender, streaming live and recorded TV, music, videos, and other content from your PC. Though coming up on its third birthday, the 360 shows no signs of aging. CNET loved it; I love mine; you're sure to love it, too, especially at this price.
