The other day I was chatting with a coworker about nothing in particular when he suddenly said, "Hey. You want my Xbox and PS2??" I said that I didn't want another PS2, as mine still is alive and kicking (Okay, it's back in it's box along with my other consoles. Moving soon.). I asked how much he wanted for the Xbox. He says, "How about $50? Nah. $25." I asked if he would trade, and he said yes. So I offered up a .22 caliber rifle that chances are will never see any action, and a few hundred rounds. He agreed.

So now I have an Xbox. Two controllers (one wireless), and six games.

The games are:
UFC Tapout 2 (Looks cool)
Madden NFL '06 (Not much of a sports freak, but this one looks promising)
Need For Speed Underground 2 (Car game. Me likey)
Dousex Invisible War (Creepy cool? Perhaps)
007 Nightfire (Everyone needs a Bond game)
Outlaw Volleyball (All I can think is WTH?)

So now I am happy. I thinned the gun herd a bit so I don't have to tote a bunch of firearms accross state lines and have boosted my console collection to 9.

And BV. When I get to my new digs in North Carolina, I will be purchasing Fable from you. Maybe I'll actually pick it up being that I'll be closer to you!!

Well, I guess with that thinking I should get rid of my NES, N64, Sega Saturn, Sega Mastersystem, Sega Dreamcast, Sega Genesis, and PS1, eh?? Maybe in a year or so I should toss out my PS2... :D

I am a collector of consoles. It doesn't matter to me if they are "outdated" because they still work and the games are still cool.

Besides, the 360 is just a bit too "gimmicky" for me right now.

wow... although I think your .22 was worth a lot more. But besides the point... :lol nice! How much did he want for the PS2?

Why don't I ever get lucky like this and get cheaper games?!!! :lol

Eh, I think my Xbox was DOA. I took it to Phoenix this weekend (Along with my DC and PS2) and it didn't want to work). I think I'm gonna monkey with it and see if I can get it running.

Yes. I want XBL. I'll figure that one out when I get teh Xbox running.

@BV, I have enough guns, and I felt that the trade was even.

you should've pawned the .22 and used the money to buy the xbox. that would've been a little smarter. but hey whatever works.  ;)
Nah. I woulda got less for the rifle because it was a single shot. Besides, a few days later the guy came up to me and asked for the Xbox back because his truck got broken into and the gun was stolen. I told him that I wasn't an insurance agency, and that if the gun was gone, he was out of luck.
 
It's easy to figure out what your co-worker's real plan is. He's going to shoot you and take the Xbox back! I have honestly never met anyone that owns a gun before. Well, I probably have. You'd be surprised how dangerous some of the kids in Britain are. And they're mostly scum too.
