I'm getting ready to buy an original xbox, basically to play my bud in online halo. since individual new ones aren't available, I'm gonna be getting a used one from eb games. I just wanted to know if anyone had any advice about this, since I'm kind of sketched out since I've seen tons of laser drives for sale on ebay. is there anything I need to be worried about? should I bother with the extended warranty for $20? I was definitely planning on getting it. I was also thinking about asking them if I could look at the manufacture dates on a couple and getting the newest one. waste of time or good idea? thanks for any input.
