Query about xbox 360 4gb..worth buying or not??

Hey guys i wana buy a gaming console & amazon is offering me xbox 360 4gb in just
₹11750/- looks like best deal but i have few questions in my mind

1.In descpriction they says it has 4usb slots & u dnt need to buy hard disk..should 4usb slots r enough i mean i dnt know how much each slot support??

2.it is a very old console may be launched then 2 yrs ago..so which games can i play?
I mean can i play all games released in 2016??

3. I've heard u need to buy original DVD's (game u play) to play games..??
And if u crack the software to just install the game & play in HDD or USB u'll loose the warrenty??

And pls also tell me if there's any other catch in it??

I bought this same model from amazon @ rs 9999 few months back
Flipkart offered Xbox 360 500 GB with DLC ( forza horizon 2 ) @ rs 11990 on 25th 26th and 27th march and on 2nd april rs 13490
so yours not a good deal right now

1.In descpriction they says it has 4usb slots & u dnt need to buy hard disk..should 4usb slots r enough i mean i dnt know how much each slot support??

Ans = it supports upto 2 TB hard drive
I have installed GTA 5 on 16 GB usb drive and its running fine

2. 2.it is a very old console may be launched then 2 yrs ago..so which games can i play?
I mean can i play all games released in 2016??

Ans = yes you can play games if they are released for xbox 360 version

3. 3. I've heard u need to buy original DVD's (game u play) to play games..??
And if u crack the software to just install the game & play in HDD or USB u'll loose the warrenty??

Ans = I didnot cracked mine and 1 shop owner told me new consoles cant be cracked easily and it voids warranty too
I bought GTA 5 from xbox store DLC one and it cost me 1200 rs
I do not have much time for playing so this 1 game is enough for me , I hardly plays once in a month so no need for cracked DVD's


And pls also tell me if there's any other catch in it??
4 GB version = I bought Battlefield 4 approx rs 800
but I am unable to play it bcoz game says you need minimum 8 gb harddrive and it cant be installed on USB drives (16 gb or 2 tb whatsoever)

so this is the minus point if you game is demanding internal harddrive then you cant play it
then next option is to buy harddrive which costs rs 2000 to 3000 chinese
and original costs rs 5000 to rs 8000

so in my opinion you just wait and get a deal like flipkart gave 15 days back
it was steal deal bcoz forza horizon MRP is approx 2000 to 3000

check this first comment on amazon link

"Don't make the same mistake I did -- the 4 GB version may seem like a good deal if you don't think you'll need a lot of space, but what they don't tell you is that some features REQUIRE an actual hard drive. You might think that a gig is a gig and it shouldn't make any difference whether it's on a disk or flash memory, but to the Xbox, they are not equivalent.

This means that unless you buy a hard drive (and it has to be one of the new 250 GB hard drives because the old ones are not compatible), you get no backwards compatibility with Xbox games, and some 360 games will arbitrarily block you from some features such as playing online or even installing updates or DLC, regardless of how much free space you have available. Basically, you can only use the internal storage (or a flash drive) to store full games, saves, or other media, but it's not the same as having a 4 GB hard drive. I wish someone had told me this before I bought mine; I foolishly assumed that the features would be identical and the only difference would be the amount of space, but now I have to buy a hard drive separately, adding up to more than it would have cost if I'd just bought the 250 GB model in the first place. Caveat emptor, indeed."

Flipkart now offering @ rs 14900 something
better buy that

Not worth buying. The xbox 360 is a decade old now. No new games are gonna be released for it. You are much better off buying a used xbox one.

I'm very much confused which gaming console to buy..no dealer is giving me all information..i don't know what to do..some r saying just buy xbox 360 4gb & attatch 32or 64gb pendrive for extra space & enjoy all games like wwe 2k17 & gta5

A retailer said buy ps3 and u can play all the latest games on it
A other retailer said sony has stopped manufacturing ps3 so dont buy u cant play all games..

If your budget is 20k, just put few ks above it and buy ps4.

If you budget is below 20k, then buy second hand PS3. You can easily get PS3 500gb for 10k on olx, quikr.

PS3 plays games that were released till 2016 but now a days, not many publishers are publishing ps3. But ps3 has many many games which will keep you occupied
