    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.

    Wait for a good sale and you can usually pick up a brand new one with extras for the same price it'd cost you with a used one. Gamestop usually has an Xbox with games and sometimes will throw in a second free game and a deal or two on additional controllers.
