Obviously cant understand the nuance of your situation but I will say things can go weird after you get into a job.
You say it's hard to be motivated doing some job you don't like for the sake of "getting work" but who knows. Is it a big company that you could roll through horizontally meeting people learning new skills? Maybe there's some stuff you could learn there that you could put on your next resume? The job I took years ago is nothing like what I do today or where I would've expected myself, and it's been a mix of inspiring and crushing, but I learned tons of shit every step of the way.
The bright side is that your profile says you live in New York so despite competition being tough at least there's jobs to be competing for.
I seriously question the value of selling the 360, especially if you have a decent catalog of replayable arcade titles. I would think you could potentially sell your disc library (separately or together) for almost the same as selling it all? And then you'd still have this little arcade box that you could hook up somewhere else.
If ever drop my 360 playing altogether I'm seriously considering building a Pacman:CEDX/Geometry Wars cabinet around it.
