It'll almost certainly be the Arcade package yes. Where was advertising that?!

For that price, defintley.

Core = Arcade nowadays.

Don't think the £159.99 one on the TV comes with GTA IV it's just showing game footage to entice people to buy a 360.

ahhh ok. I did think that may be the case, but with it both showing onscreen the two i thought it was for both. My mistake.

Making this an excellent price for a better system!

Can anyone confirm or provide a link proving that the Arcade bundle for £159 includes GTA4?

I've got a Premium + GTA4 on preorder @ Play for £189. After looking at the system comparrison chart I'm not sure if I really need a premium as 1. I don't have a HDTV (so no need for cable) and 2. I have an original Xbox so don't care about backwards compatibility.

There are only 2 things that make me wary of getting an Arcade over a Premium... One is whether it uses a different chipset (the red ring on death worries me) and 2. Downloading the GTA 'extras' that will be released exclusively on the Xbox in the future. Will these be sold as discs or be downloadable via Live Marketplace? I assume if they're on Live I'll need the harddrive to be able to get the content (which must be over 256mb)

I'm tempted to cancel my Play order if I can get an Arcade + GTA4 on Tuesday for this price. :)

^^^ TGB - you need a HD at some point. Sure you can get by without one if you only have a couple of games, but once you get a few more, or want to download XBLA games (and you well might, they are great) or download map packs/extras for your games, a memory card is not big enough. so you will be buying a hard disk at some point anyhow. but you can get em on ebay or the like for around £30 so can add them later. so up to you!

i bought an arcade in Jan, and then added the hard disk later. another advantage of the arcade is you get the memory card (so can backup your saves from hard disk when you DO get one) plus you get 5 XBLA games on a disc with it. you don't get a headset tho, so you need to factor in one of those if you are going online.

oh bur even if you dont have a HD TV, you will need an RGB Scart lead. the video lead that comes with the arcade is pants.

Thanks for the info... ! I have a friend with a 20GB 360 hdd I might be able to pick up cheap as he's selling his old system, which I guess is a reason for me not to splash out on the Premium.

How much can I see the HD component cable for on ebay if I get the Premium? I'm def not gonna need one of these for a while. I guess if I think about it I'm only gonna be paying £30 more for the Premium and if I can sell the HD cable it'll be even closer to the price of the Arcade. Prob worth sticking with my Play order! :)

And hey, I have exams the next week which won't be over 'til Friday so Play's later release date (as much as I hate to admit it) is probably a good thing! :D

:thumbsup:
#14
the xbox only comes with one cable, the HD component is used for sd tv and hd tv's so if your planning on selling it your gonna have a unplayable xbox lol
#15
If it comes online on tuesday then u can use quidco 2%, about £3.99 off and collect instore. every little helps:thumbsup:
#16
Dunno about 'hush hush' and 'Press Release' but this has been on offer from Play.com for over a week now...!! Woolies is nothing special!

with the premium anyhow.... and you can apply the discount as well...
#17
I have a copy already ;-)

Gotta love my local indie games shop.
#19
This may be the same but delivery is 'Due for release on 02/05/2008'

This is a better deal for those that want to walk into a shop on Tuesday and hand over cash to buy something :-)

Just need to know if it is all stores?
#20
i am so getting this - i wanna trade-in my old core & get a new one [its playing up a bit - freezes, disc errors & E47 once :(]

so this should be a good deal :)
#21
Exactly what toffee said... you need a HD, so unless you have one already... buy the premium over the arcade. £40 more, but u also get a wireless controller (instead of wired), headset and 20gb HD.
#22
Hey, the hush hush thing was just because it says its secret in the document sent to Woolworths, thats why they havent announced it yet.

Also the Golden Compass should be £9.97 from Monday for one day only

I fear my indie won't take the risk, despite working for them for four years in my youth.

At this rate I'm going to doing a Tuesday morning dash to Sainsburys at 8:00am, If I fail it's straight to Woolworths as they open at 8:30. Last resort is W H Smiths.

Disappointingly I have to be at work by 9am so no GTA til lunchtime.

You get a wireless controller either way.

The only differences between the Arcade console and Premium are...

Premium has a 20GB Hard Drive, Arcade has a 256MB Memory Card
Premium has a network cable, Arcade doesn't
Premium has SD & HD AV Lead, Arcade has SD AV Lead
Premium has Headset, Arcade doesn't
Both have Wireless Controller
Both Consoles use the new HDMI/175W Main Boards

Also Arcade comes with 5 Arcade games (1 Disc) which are also available on LIVE
#25
The advantage of Play is you open a new account with a googlemail email address and use the "experience08" voucher for £10 off and they're doing cashback on it as it's software as well so you get another £8.00 Quidco.

So what if you have to wait a couple of days, eh?
#26
Oh my god, has anyone else seen the IGN UK review yet? Only 8.7 out of 10. http://uk.xbox360.ign.com/articles/869/869381p7.html

Lol, I'm kidding - It has actually an extremely rare 10/10! Holy Smokes!

But woolies are so unreliable that they arent worth bothering with... Play.com on the other hand...

Are you after employee of the month or something?... first post.. recommending employers and all when the deal is cheaper elsewhere? (after discount) :)

Only kidding of course, but credibility would be greater if you werent Woolworths employee :)

Wouldn't touch a woolies deal with a bargepole...........

Go Play... Guaranteed Falcon chipset from them... I've ordered several times from woolies at great prices only to find my orders cancelled when they 'couldnt get stock'

They are certainly not what they were 20 years ago :(
#28
Guys, I would go for a premium as it is said that you will definately need a hard drtive with GTA4 as the games caches lots of data to the harddrive and apperently the game is pretty buggy without the drive. (although the game will probably get a patch for that pretty soon)

However I can confirm that the game runs perfectly on my premium atm. (yay for blackcats torrents) :thumbsup:
(I will be buying the game too!)
#29
Its very worthy of getting a 10/10, been playing it for a few days now and it kicks ass :) just dont let your kids watch the execution seen!!! or any of it come to think about it lol.

Hey, Woolies are pretty useless and yeah i shop at play more often.

Thought people might want to know what with it being so close to Release date you might sneak one before they sell out.

p.s Employee of the Month... unlikely

If your planning on playing online, then for some games you need a hard drive or you can't play online. I know crackdown was like this and a few others. Also the content will be downloadable via the marketplace in autumn 08.
#32
Just to let everyone know, Quidco specifically states that play does not give cashback on consoles. It may track, but it certainly won't validate.
#33
Xbox 360 Premium for £199.99 with GTA IV for free best bargain for the best console around.............And don't forget MS paid that $50 million for that Exclusive content which is looking to be almost another GTA game in themselves....

LOVERLY just LOVERLY

Fred Head;1972784
Yer not quite on the same scale a downloadable hat or bit of clothing isn't quite the same thing as 2 Episodic Contents really is it, still there you go thats why they paid the price of a next gen game for the content..


I guess all will have to wait and see, im not going to argue the point cause its clear that the xbox has a better offer with GTA at the moment. Thing is not many people plan to only play gta on their consoles :thumbsup:. ttfn
#35
definitely worth getting one for a hard drive, If nothing else for all the xbox live arcade demos that auto download onto your machine, and think of the money you save trying all the main game demos and realising which full games are worth your cash or not. Much more future proof.

Its really not you know, more like an extra couple of missions, although once you take into account the cost of live subscription and the cost of the dlc, it is almost like paying for a whole new game.so i can see why you may think that.
#38
actually both lots of downloadable content are said to be 10+ hours of game play each, which in my calculation makes 3 and a half cod4's on veteran
#39
Decided to wait on my Play order, especially as I used the 5% discount and got £8 Quidco.

The 2nd May date... Is that the date they'll be arriving or the date they'll be dispatched? I assume there'll be a couple of days wait after the 2nd, but I'd love to get it then as it'd be a nice reward for concentrating on exams and not buying a 360 in Woolies. Cuz gawd knows it's hard not to. :)
#40
It just goes to show how a good, customer focused, marketing machine can generate sales. Sony degrade the PS3 to bring the price down and it flops. M$ on the other hand can sell the 360 Premium with a premium game at a <£200 price point and sales are at fever pitch!
I was waiting for an offer like this, and MS (as much as I hate them as a company) have sold me on the Xbox 360. Sony can shove their overpriced PS3. I don't need a blu-ray player, so why would I want to pay a three figure premium for one???
