Retailer stops selling old Xbox 360s

Game Group is to no longer sell older model second-hand Xbox 360s, according to an internal memo passed to Eurogamer. It reads: “As of Saturday September 3 we will not be selling pre-owned Xbox 360 Cores, Arcades and 20GB non-HDMIs. This is due to the high failure rate of the console and the difficulty and cost of repairing them.” While the retailer will continue to accept trade-ins of the older models, they will be returned to its distribution centre “as a regular faulty return where they will exit the business.”
