Another great deal this time also useful for the older 20gb Premium owners.

Voted Hot.


Indeed, I'm just debating whether to go for this or to go down the DIY 120GB route.
#3
This is the same pack as in the US. I would expect to see it for less than £50 in less than a month to be honest so I would wait if I were you.

Problems?

It doesn't include the Transfer Pack so it is a massive problem for those on a 20Gb HD.
#4
Great deal, hot.
#5
This is the rrp for it, not hot really as I'm sure it will be cheaper elsewhere when it does get released.

If you can find one comet are selling 120gb for £60.
#6
How can you be sure £59.99 is the RRP ?. Although it likely is, I can't find this for sale anywhere else at the moment (Which I imagine will change come the 19th) so It's difficult to say for sure.

The Xbox 360 60GB LIVE Starter Pack will be available from November 19 in the UK and November 21 across Europe.

RRP or not this is a hot deal!
#10
They should have thrown in the wireless headset!
#11
Can you transfer the saved data from your 20GB hard drive?
#12
Cold, those needing a bigger hard drive for the NXE should look in comet for the 120GB at £60.

and use £100 of petrol to look for one in stock
#15
not bad, but I think they can do better...

Not true, they don't need a bigger drive than this, the idea is not to chuck every single game onto hard drive just the main Ones that you play a lot and for the games which spin up the drive a bit more than others due.

USB drives of just about any size can be used for everything else i.e Photos,Music and Div X etc as long as you either use a mac or something like Partition magic on the PC to get past the 32gb limit....

Hopefully it Will drop to below the magic £50 mark once it gets near Christmas and the retailers fight for your custom, and the January sales..


I'm not saying 120GB is needed, however why pay £60 for a 60GB HDD when you can get double the space for the same price.

Or you could use an invention called a telephone.

The telephone you say. Hmmm Now what would happen if the deal was for a telephone.

Anyway having a telephone or using one is hardly gonna get you one it might stop you driving to stores on the off chance but if the store was 150 miles away back to petrol again. Unless you could convince them to deliver but then that would not be instore only

your point about £60 for 60gb and £60 for 120gb is valid on the basis of, which would you prefer to buy. You are getting extra stuff with the 60gb hard drive, 3 months live and a headset and ooh a patch cable for £59.99 (yeah I know they are worth nothing)
#19
I would hazard a guess that most people have a local Comet store, it's just a case of arranging for one to be put aside once the delivery comes in.
#20
I was in my local Blockbuster the other day and could have sworn that they also have the 120Gb selling at £59.99. I would need to confirm this as I didn't pay it any more attention as I have just gone down the DIY route with a £30 Western Digital HDD from ebuyer.

They are not going to be ordering anymore of these they are selling them off hence priced @ £59.99 same as the 20 gb priced @19.99.

My nearest Comet store is 8 miles away but [I have no car] next nearest is 11 miles and neither have any stock or are getting anymore in.
#22
You have no car? Then petrol costs should not be a problem ;)
#23
This is just the standard price for this. Can't really say it's a hot deal.
#24
How is this a hot deal? as mentioned its the RRP.

Voted cold!! If you can find it cheaper than 59.99 then it is a Hot Deal.

Was in a blockbuster yesterday in cardiff, rumney hill, and they had a retail 120gb hard drive for £69.99 so if people are considering this deal there is allways a comet or a blockbuster 120 gb around the same price.

My mistake, I thought I had seen it for £59.99 in Blockbuster however £69.99 is still a pretty good deal (compared to the original RRP of £129.99) when the data transfer cable is included. Like I said in my previous post, I have just done the DIY upgrade using a Western Digital HDD from ebuyer for £30 though I am sure that there are a lot of people wanting the official product and less hassle.

:thumbsup:
#27
Have some rep, cakeybwoy and ollied.
The Blockbuster option definitley looks the more appealing.
My gold membership runs out in a few days' time, but I'd rather pay £70 for a 120gb HDD, and a tenner or so for three monthsmembership*; than pay £60 for a HDD half the size and have the XBL thrown in for "free".
(The headset and ethernet cable are worth nothing to me, personally, as I already have both.)
#28
Have some questions:
Do you require 60GB+ for NXE?
Is 60GB officially available now?
Is 120GB officially available now?

NO, but the ability to install games will eat into that 20GB you have quickly for example, Fable 2 takes around 6GB

YES

Can you transfer the saved data from your 20GB hard drive?


Nope. There is no 20 -> 60 gig transfer cable. The Elite upgrade cable doesn't work either.

you sure ? sorry you have to be wrong

why would that be. No way is that gonna stay if it's true (which it cannot be ) ms would not offer 60 gig without the means to give user transfer rights from previous model.

There is no way you can use any other 60 gig hd like the wd 120 gig hack as the security sector from 60 is not known at minute and tool needs updating but the cable has to work to be able to transfer your content, it still has same connector and is still sata so there should be no problem. Will have to google now as you might be right but how stupid if so

Do everyone a favor and find the required cable and post details here mate. It does seem insane but it also appears to be true. You'd imagine that MS must have something in the works but right now the only supported upgrade is 20->120 gig. neither 20->60 or 60->120 gig are options. i believe this means you'll have to give up your game saves if you upgrade? or maybe you can use a memory card? Dunno.
#33
Pretty sure you can transfer game saves and your XBL account via an official memory stick.

you can move your game saves over using a 256Mb or similar card. I believe you can also copy to PC using a cable?
#35
Conflicting stories but some people claim they have phoned MS, registered their 60 gig machine and asked for a 20 -> 60 gig upgrade kit and received cable and disk 10 days later. Free of Charge it seems (all US reports so far)
#36
Has to be done on a 20gig system and others have managed. Did come across a post where user said they could not do it and had to do it manually, eg the memcard.

They mentioned that the option remained greyscaled in the software I think maybe a dodgy cable with wire/break.

If the software does not allow it then ms just forgot to update it or give a download link for it to enable 20> 60

Pointless upgrade for any 20gb user to be able to buy 60 gig and not be able to use game saves especially as they do not give you a memory card to aid in the transfer if the cable does not work, TBH it was you had to ask for data migration cable with the purchase of a 120 gig elite system (it should have been in there regardless) but some will say why if it is your first xbox 360 purchase, fair enough but if you bought a few it annoyed me it was not included and I had to wait after asking for cable, you do get them with the retail 120 gig hard drives I have seen on sale in UK so surely that has to be same in UK for 60 gig model(well you would think as why sell 60 gig model if you cannot upgrade your previous system)
#37
Ah, ok. So should be able to use a regular 20 -> 120 transfer cable then? i guess that original problem post you found proliferated the 'net and became fact, as so often these things do :D
#38
The cable can do
20 > 20
20 > 60
20 > 120
60 > 60
60 > 120
120 > 120

You will probably be able to order a cable from microsoft if you bought one of the live kits.

Maybe, maybe there is a problem somewhere with the software that does not allow it under certain circumstances.


I really cannot say 100%. I have the data migration cable a 20gb a 120gb but not the 60gb model.

You might not even get the transfer cable with the 60gb hard drive . (as above cannot see whats point of having 60gb without them giving you the cable or giving you a free memory card to transfer data)
#40
Voted cold, 120GB HDD is now £60 in most places and three months XBL is only worth £14.99.
