    As awesome as this is, I still can't believe the price. $399!

    I told her where she went, etc. She said that she went to GameStop and they told her that if we trade in my Halo 3 edition Xbox 360 (with controller) she'll get $50 towards the purchase.

    As cool as I think the 360slim is, I don't think that the trade-in value for my current 360 should only be a meager $50...So I'm thinking of telling her to keep her money and I'll keep my Halo 3 Xbox.


    At any rate, should I decide to let her go ahead with this, how do I go about transferring the data from my current Xbox to the new one?
