Well i'll be heading off to University in 2 weeks time and I forsee a lot of Bus and plane rides in the near distant future. I was wondering if anyone can help me find a 360 Carry/Travel case so I can move my 360 along easily. As far as I am aware Microsoft doesnt do an official one (Couldnt find one on their site for example) and I was wondering if anyone has one and if they could reccomend it?

Obviously I wouldnt really want the 360 logo to be really really visible since i'll be moving about on public transport a lot in the student part of Belfast (Capital of Northern Ireland) and thats pretty swarmed with opportunistic theives and that would just sort of scream "STEAL ME" to any of them etc.

I'd guess it'd need to be hard and have appropiate room for a few games and the necessary cables.

So can anyone help me solve my problem?

I think Madcatz makes a bag, but its very evident it's a 360 carrying case and it's roughly $60 if I remember right. My local GameStop was selling Halo 3 messenger bags for carrying around the 360 system. My buddy bought one and he uses it for everything. It's not made to protect the 360, though. Just carry it.

The one below is the one I have and I have had it since Spring Break of 2006 and it still works fine. It costs only $30, which is a good deal seeing as I've had this bag for almost 3 years.

Now I don't know if you all have that bag in Ireland or not but if you do I would highly suggest getting it. The bag is big enough and is very reliable.

Found the same make (I think) on Ebay. Should I go for it then?

I would. It's very reliable and you can fit 10 games in the case along with all your cables. I would not pay over $30 for it though. As it's not worth that much money.

I like how it's got a picture of an original Xbox where it says you can play it right in the bag. That's a great idea ... if you want a RRoD.

The bag looks alright, though, a little pricey.

I manged to Ebay one for 20, which is around $42 dollars. Not bad.

Well, if you're satisfied, that's good, but I wouldn't drop $42 on a bag.

well currency is a little different over here. The bag would have cost around 15 from a retailer anyway (and none of them sell it) so i'm happy enough.

I think I have this one. http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?product_id=61052 Mine is a diff. colour but it's basically the same thing. It's really protective and as long as you wear it as your backpack, you'll be fine. It has room for the console, 2 controllers, all the cables, & approximately 8 games and it has a little MP3 player pocket on the top with the headphone hole. It's pretty nifty.

I might get one who's on holiday or something lol. Then again there may always just be a group of them to jump me lol. Better they dont know what i'm carrying so they cant do a smash and grab lol.

I have the same case as BBall, the GPAck. It works great and is not that expensive. But like he said, not really built for protection, just something to carry your Xbox and cables in
