maybe gets more cold than heat as its instore and its hard to find a good whs IMO. our local one is so bad. but maybe its the same for alot of people and there whs isn't the best?

great deal if you can get it though defs :thumbsup:
#5
I guess it will be very hard to find as they have had their gaming clearout sale on for a while now
#6
Get Curry's to do their 110% price match and you'll only be paying £74!! (Curry's shelf price = £139.99, difference = £59.99, 110% of difference = £65.99, final price match = £74.01)


Currys Price Promise in store:
We’ll match the instore prices of Argos, Asda, Comet, Jessops, Tesco, John Lewis…..in fact any local retail store.

Nice idea, but won't they usually only price match if the item is in stock at the store they're matching?

HOT if your lucky enough to find one. Werent these going for £50 at Smiths a couple of months back?

i know they were sellin psp 300s for 50 but not xboxs
#10
These are the leftovers from the WHSmiths clearout sale. PSP's (as previously mentioned) were £50, PS3's were £199 or there abouts but they are like gold dust.

Good on you for getting one. :thumbsup:
#11
good deal if you can get hold of one.
#12
I try to not look at these 'I popped into my local and saw a Xbox 360 for 50p' threads.
The cold voters know pretty well that this is not a deal that deserves heat unless you happen to be passing the door of a store, the wind is blowing east and lady luck is looking down on you with a 4 leaf clover in her hand.

I won't be personnaly voting cold (or hot), but that is my opinion.
#13
Maybe people are voting cold because its an XBox 360 and WILL die on you with the RROD.

Fanboys are like that. QFT FTW LOLZ WUT? And all that sort of crap.

I am on the lookout for a new 360 because mine has developed a rather annoying habit of not recognising game discs now and again and it will only get worse probably.

Anyway hot from me.

It's a good deal nevertheless and deserves heat. There are always the moaners with the in-store threads who say 'oh this is probably store specific so i'm voting cold', or, 'my local store is rubbish, so i'm voting cold'
#15
I think a deal can only be hot if it's widely available.
#16
Well i have just called round 4 stores including the big ones and they have all said they dont stock them , so therefore i am voting cold. :?
#17
Its only really a deal if people can get it, simple as that!

No one else has confirmed this and so far a ridiculous amount of heat, typical!
#18
I'd be supprised if there are any more left as the rush for these started a couple of months ago.

I got one for this price at Aylesbury's store in June. It was the last one on the shelf. One of the older types with the 256MB memory card, although some people reported getting the newer models with built-in memory.

Well done for finding one, probably found in a back room and put out on the shelf.
#19
I got one of these when it was posted on here a couple of months ago, I was lucky I suppose! They only had two so I doubt many places will have many, if any, left now. Paul
#20
this is probably the only one left after it was posted here a couple of months back.
#21
The thing is with this one I did notice their was no memory card with it, does the new models have it built in ?

You mean, fanboys that make comments such as that? There have been very very very few reports of any of the new boxes coming down with a touch of the RROD. The old ones, yes, pretty much every one. But new boxes are nothing to worry about.

As for your disc reading problem, I have a mate who had the same issue - his practically wouldn't read anything without trying it 15 times. I just bought him a new drive off ebay, £20, swapped the drive key from his old to his new, installed new drive, bingo. working 100% fine.
#25
*sigh* these in-store whsmith deals are just so exasperating for people like me whose local whsmith only stores stamps.

you could fix that with a £10 laser from ebay most likly, or if you are a bit more technical a new drive but that requires flashing the drives firmware so not really as practicle.

nice tutorial here as well as a decent picture

or if your not technically minded enough sell it on ebay stating its fault and someone will buy it to do the same to it for a reasobable amount I would say.

It might just be dirty too, you could try a lens cleaner.

I work for WHSmith, and I can see from our systems here that this price is genuine but there isn't much stock around. As of yesterday there were only 17 stores with stock - and they only had 1 unit left in each. I can publish the list of where if its allowed?

It's best to use the "Contact Us" form to find out.

I will also report your post so that a mod can have a look, I hope you can do so. :)

As above, please use contact form

This was available months ago, 17 units left, scrap this post!
#33
Why would we scrap this post if 17 people on here can get a arcade for 80 pound ?

because 17 * 9 degrees = 161 degrees. Compared to what its actually at. So there are a tonne of people voting this hot despite the fact there is NO PHYSICAL WAY they will be able to get one.

Only if they actually buy it from WHSmith......
As i've already pointed out, if the remaining stock is used to price match Curry's down to £74 everyone can get it at a bargain. (so long as they can find a WHSmith nearby a Curry's store & both are in-stock)

Is that some sort of joke?

If you can do that, please could you pick me tonights lottery numbers while you're busy defying the laws of probabilities by several million times over? If somebody knows where one of these fabled 17 xboxes are, they're almost certainly going to be down there straight away to buy it as it'll be gone in no time due to many other people doing the same. If they do decide to chance Currys, they then have to contend with the chances of them finding a Currys within the price match distance, who are willing to price match it (they don't generally price match offer prices), etc, and hoping WHSmith admit to having them in stock at that price.

It's not going to happen.

Well done to the op for managing to get their hands on one of these :thumbsup:
Unfortunately my local Wh Smith is also rubbish and they don't even stock consoles. I can see both sides of the argument on this one, sometimes it's annoying to come on here and see deals that are almost impossible for most people in the country to get hold of but then on the other hand they are fantastic deals for the people who can get hold of them :thinking:
