On new accounts, yes. It's mostly the reason that you aren't a trusted seller with that type of item. Do you plan to sell many of the Xbox?

Wait, where is this truck and how can I get them to drop some at my house? lol.

Regardless ===

Refurbs, that's even riskier I think. Might want to sell 1, wait for any complaints and maybe try to sell another one, but it can be very risky.

Good luck to your endeavors.

You ave a lot of work to do if you think selling BRANDED items for $150-$200 on brand new accounts is going to be easy breezy...

Sell 2 or 3 Xbox 360s during your first month (spread out in weeks),
and make up the bulk of your sales selling legit 2nd hand or New 360 games and accessories.
Build up your feedback and wait for your account to age.
Then when the time feels right, list at least 1 more Xbox 360 per month.
Just becareful and do things slowly.
As long as you can prove you have the units and other stuff, you'll be fine.
Be sure to keep your customers happy and do not ship your units overseas.
There are no "⊗⊗⊗⊗" 360s, the only thing eBay dislikes about selling consoles
is if your selling "modded" or "hacked" ones. Especially Jtags, Jailbreaked and RGHs.

I know this, cause I sell 360s, Wiis and Ps3s locally in my hometown.

Ebay also has a Big Problem with Stolen XBox's,,,or, for that matter ANY Merchandise,,that is what I was alluding to in my post above,,,In Fact The One thing Ebay has ALWAYS Strived to AVOID from it Earliest Days is being a site where Thieves could convert their ill-gotten gains into cash,,,

The wholesale price of these items is NO Secret, nor are the markups,,,yes a few can become available at a lower price because of Liquidations, Ch 7 Sales, ect, from time to time, but NOT too Many. Ebay Knows that a Long Steady Supply of Certain Items at LOW Prices VERY Likely has its roots in some sort of crime.

This is VERY True, Microsoft is clearing inventory for the New System,,,But NOT Yet,,,if the OP has some sort of "IN" at microsoft, that "IN" is NOT Selling Him Super Discounted Xbox's Now, but more likely tossing him a few Xbox's "On the side"

Everyone thought that Microsoft would announce the new Xbox 720 this year at E3, but that didn't happen. They will officially announce it next June In 2013. We should then see Xbox 360 console price drops during the Fall/Holiday season of 2013, since the new xbox won't be coming out until Holiday 2013-2014, this is just my guess.

The $99 xbox that I was referring to will be coming out by this fall, but there's a catch. It's $99.99 on a 2 year contract, comes with a 4gb xbox 360, kinect, and 2 years of Xbox Live, so in the end you'll still be paying more than someone paying out of pocket for a 360 without a contract. There's always a catch.

Off topic, but we will see Nintendo Wii console prices drop this year, since the Wii U will be released this holiday season, which has already been revealed & confirmed, so the OP & us could look forward to that.

Indeed.

Look to other items that will let you get that account working & maturing.

Go easy on what you try to sell until you get established.

Good Luck

I never thought of refurbished more risk on eBay then used. Just more likely to get complaints. People expect it to be like new. One scratch or din and that's it.

Not really. PS3 and Xbox accessories are also highly coun.ter.feited. So, don't get too excited with accessories either.

If you sell it as Refurbish or Used you won't have any problems. I have sold them months back on new accounts same day I opened them without any problems. But then again this is from my testing. You can try you have nothing to loose. It's always easy to open a new account. good luck!
