    If you buy from a decent source then yes. GameStop, eBay, somewhere w protection if it breaks super quick.

    Like @EndersShadow stated, I wouldn't worry much if you bought it from a retailer used.

    Like all things the private market has it's risks and also it's good deals.

    If you really are into gaming then you should invest on a brand new one.

    Buying a second hand can be a great way to reduce costs. You will get what you want at a cheaper price.
    Buy them from the right store like; GAME You get 1 year store warranty and save some money on your own.

    If getting the simplest possible crispness for many games may be a priority, PS4 comes out on top. However, when it involves the premium versions of both consoles, Xbox has a foothold . The $499 Xbox One X plays many titles in native 4K, and has the foremost powerful overall specs of any console out there

    Thanks for sharing. I agree with you. Recently I bought 3 new Xboxes for my kids. My kids always playing different games like cyberpunk Taken ranboo etc.
