Hi Ya,

I swear the triple points promotion has already finished, which is why they're now offering the 10% discount.
It still works out better than the previous deal as with triple points, it worked out 12% store credit but now it's 14% majority discount and store credit and obviously don't forget the additional vouchers available as well. :)

Hi, Been looking at XBox 360 for a while. Gutted that I missed out on the Gamestation deal with 3 games, but this looks great value!

Anyone got any ideas if, due to any fault with hardware/software, you can take it back to a Boots store - Or does it have to get sent back online?

I've a huge dilema, get this at such a low price or wait for the V2

Hi there,

We've had loads of faults with the Xbox 360 and unfortunately, most stores no longer accept return to stores for a fault but instead they want it sent directly to the manufacturer, which is a long process.

If a problem does occur, which is a much higher fault rate than Microsoft is trying to let on with there 2% fault rate, then you will have to arrange for there courier to come and collect it and wait for a refurbished model, which has a turnaround of around a month.

We're actually on our 7th replacement and we've found this problem to be extremely repetitive, which a lot of people believe the fault rate to be in around 10% of the consoles.

Fortunately, if it is a continuous problem, then you can call the escalations department in Reading, who replaced our console very swiftly and gave us a couple free launch games to compensate for all our problems and we also purchased additional 2 years insurance because it's such a problematic console, so it's well worth the investment.

Boots Don't sell consoles instore though, i doubt there is an option to take it back to a store but if you are worried about this problem, i think you should wait for the re-release, which will hopefully erradicate the faulty problems.

Hope that helps some people make a decision as to what they want to do :)

Tempted to buy the DS lite brain training pack (http://www.boots.com/shop/product_details.jsp?productid=1081161&classificationid=1025901&slmRefer=000) then flog off the games and accesory pack on eBay and just keep the console. Not sure how much the accessories would go for though, hmmm....

Any advice?
banned#27
You'd be better off with the Amazon deal of £109.98 for a DS Lite + 1 game as posted here:

http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=42501&highlight=lite


Valid until the 28th Feb although Black and Pink seem to be out of stock at the moment Amazon restock fairly often. I ordered a Pink + Sims: Pets and was told 2 weeks; it arrived in 3 days!
#28
In my experience this statement is incorrect. In case the item is faulty, you could call customer service at first instance. If they don't have replacement stock, they advise customers to return to any store and get refund.

I did this several times including Digital Camera (11th month of purchase), Health care items etc, but never had any problems in getting refunds.

Hi. I agree with realfriendlyman on some of the points he made regarding the 360. However do not be put off taking advantage of this great deal especially if your planning on using it to purchase a 360 console.

I do agree that the figure for consoles that were breaking down was a lot higher than the 2% that Microsoft would have us believe and may have at one point been even higher than the 10% he suggested, possibly closer to 20%.

I believe now though after extensive research that faults were more likely to develop with your 360 if you were one of the people who purchased there consoles that were manufactured on or around the consoles launch date, well over a ago now. These consoles were riddled with hardware failures, software failure and intermittent game crashes.
This was mainly down to shoddy manufacturing due to the pressure and demand to have as many consoles on the shelves in time for the consoles xmas release date in December 05.

I am also speaking from experience as my first 360 also suffered the same fate as many others that were manufactured around a year ago. Even my replacement died after 2 days, which funnily enough had a manufacturing date of 2 months prior to my original.

The turn-around for console replacement via UPS courier of 1 month as suggested by realfriendlyman is, I think, a bit of a exageration and he may have just had bad luck if he experienced this. In the majority of cases the customer is quoted a period of 7-10 days from collection at your address to delivery of replacement, and in many reported cases this process can take just 3-5 days for replacement.

It is common practice now for all the next generation console manufacturers including Sony and Nintendo to request that there products be returned directly back to them by the customer as opposed to returning them to the shop of purchase.

One reason is because of past instances where some consoles that were being returned to the shops had not suffered hardware or software failures but had failed due to being tampered with by the owner of the console, who then returned them back to the shop under guarantee for a replacement, which impacted on the manufacturers profit.

It is also a way for the manufacturer to spot any potential widespread problems and address them as soon as possible.

A percentage of all new technology is suceptible to failure especially if manufacturers guidlines are not adhered to, but I think in microsoft case they made a big mistake releasing this console when they did as quantity of the products made available seemed to be more important than the quality of the product at that time.

However 360 failures seem to finally be a declining trend so I would recommend this deal if using it for one of these consoles as I think you will struggle to find a better price for a 360 than this at the moment if you are wanting to purchase one without all the bundled games etc.

Voted hot and rep added.

i wouldn't be put off buying the 360 from boots. We too had a faulty one and dealt direct with xbox (not the retailer) who sent a courier .... the new console arrived very swiftly and have had no further problems. very impressed with the service and support we received.

I've a huge dilema, get this at such a low price or wait for the V2


What's the V2 - is it going to be exactly the same specs but redesigned or is it going to be an upgraded machine?
#32
Grrrr, it's out of stock!!!
#33
Ok, just searched the net in regards to XBOX 360 V2...

The upgraded machine, codenamed Zephyr, is apparently set to offer the re-sized 65nm processor as well as an HDMI port and a 120GB hard drive. Due out later this year, Zephyr has pretty much everything fans have been asking for from a re-thought machine - HDMI, of course, gives the platform full 1080p HD compatibility at last, while the larger HD makes sense given the console's new role as a storage dept for downloaded movies.

And that's not all.

January the 8th, Microsoft revealed that a new version of its IPTV technology would be engineered for Xbox 360 in time for next Christmas 2007. The service delivers broadcast TV across broadband networks and features a digital recording function.

So I suppose the best thing is to wait for V2 as it's now been confirmed its coming, buy it now and you maybe a little peaed it doesn't have a HDMI cable to TV HDMI cable.
[helper]#34
..or you could wait for the Xbox 2010 the one due out in 3 years time (just made that name up before anyone disputes the title of the next Xbox).

From what has previously been posted here the V2 is not due out till late this year. Probably in time for Xmas. When this comes out the price will almost certainly increase from the current levels of around £280 for a premium.

If you want an Xbox and you know that sooner or later you'll get one, why spend the next 11 months kicking yourself everytime you miss a good deal when you could get one now.

There may be some price drops when the PS3 is launched......
banned#35
Very good points gari189 - the only reason I was asking is that we've just got a Wii so I'm in no rush to go out and buy another console but on the other hand there's a few 360 games out now that I wouldn't mind playing! :w00t:

I'm really not bothered about HDMI as my plasma is component or VGA only anyway (without buying another input board) and "later this year" to me means "overpriced until well into next year".

And one futher thought... If anyone thinks that a HD platform with 120gb is a good idea then they are nuts. Our HTPC has over 1Tb - we still run out of space and we don't even run HD content!
#36
That's the point, the whole electronics / gadget life cycle goes in that way.

6-8 months ago Toshiba HD DVD player A1 (us version) was more than £500 here, now european version E1 (A2 - US equivalant) available for £300 or less. Again XE1, next version available for £500 or more by next month.

If you wait.. you have to wait ever for the future proof technology :)
