Good price,

Can an xbox be returned to argos?

I know its excluded from 28 day money back but surely if its not opened they should take it back... Is the 28 day only if its been opened?

Great deal, odd game to bundle with the Arcade though, you really need a hard disk to install the extra data disk to get the most out of Forza 3.

but Forza 3 does work on the Arcade version of the xbox 360 - I haven't yet felt the need to get a hard disk to install the extras - what is on the first disk seems to be plenty to keep me going for a bit.

Nope, it's excluded opened or not. Retailers are under no obligation to give you your money back for any item if you simply decide to change your mind. Why would you buy one just to return it anyway?.

to get the game for £10 ???

IF they did take it back, (as previous poster has stated a retailer is under no obligation to refund you an item just because you changed your mind) I think you would find they would insist on the whole package being returned.

I didn't say it didn't work, just an odd bundle choice as 25% of track choices and cars are missing without that extra disk HD install. Making sure anyone that is serious about Forza 3 want a 360 complete with a Hard Disk.

I was about to agree with akwaaba, it doesn't need the hard drive to play. Then I noticed what is actually on the second disc;

# Road racing track pack that includes 3 racing environments (Rally di Positano, Fujimi Kaido and Nurburgring Nordschleife)

# For those playing the game on a Xbox 360 console with more than 512Mb of memory all of the above options are available.

# For those playing the game on a Xbox 360 Arcade console with a clean 512MB memory, any one of the three car packs (Asian, European or American car packs) from disc 2 can be installed one at a time.

# The road racing track pack cannot be installed on 512MB of memory.


I think losing the nurburgring and fujimi kaido is reason enough to buy a hard drive.

So what you are saying is that Forza 3 isnt Xbox 360 compatable?

The game isnt XBOX 360 compatable. It requires extra peripherals to work correctly.

It is Xbox 360 compatible, as I stated above, try R-E-A-D-I-N-G, to get the most out of it you need a hard disk to install the second disk, otherwise you are missing out on 25% of the tracks.
#16
indeed, consider the extra content like free DLC but bundled on a dvd.

it is one of the FEW games where the storage limitations of dvd is a pain in the ass.

Wot he sed...

I'm playing Forza 3 on an Arcade but can't race the Nurburgring, for example, until I can get hold of a hard drive to install the extra disc.

It hasn't stopped me gunning through career mode for 2 hours a day tho :whistling:

Great price! I bought the £140 deal (top deal on here) and got Forza 3 chucked in for £20 and thought that was a good price!
#18
Bleh, this deal would only work if there was another hot deal for a hard drive! You will seriously miss out otherwise.
#19
Unless they've changed the printing method on the discs Forza 3 disc 1 is out of balance. I wouldn't recommend playing it without installing since it creates much noise/vibration.

I've not noticed that with my copy? Have you tried getting the disc replaced?
#21
Hmm ... I've not experienced this and I have one of the first 50 batch made. (Limited edition if that's any different?).

On a side note there's no stock within 40 miles of me :( ... My old Pro needs a break. Already has my home made RROD fix which is holding up quite nicely. A much better set-up and the X-Clamps.

Out of interest, were these the 256Mb Arcades at Argos, or the updated 512's?

John Lewis are doing them for the same price with free delivery currently if thats of use. I would believe they would be new stock (512mb internal)

And does this include Forza for £10?

They appear to have both items available for home delivery if that's any help?
#26
Pretty sure Amazon have the Arcade for £99 and in-stock

My money is on them matching this Argos deal within the next few days.

I have got some stock close to me, If you want i can pick up and post it to you. But dont know how much postage is gonna cost.
#28
My local store has the console available (and reserved for collection tomorrow) but the game can't be reserved until Monday.
Will I still only pay £10 for the game?
It says £10 on the reservation email but not sure if I should risk it or not... anyone know?

Thanks for clearing that up.

I've bought a prvious one but decided to fix my old one instead, so now got a new arcade which although is 4 days old cant send back to argos :x

Ye i know that would be the case, i wouldnt go to that trouble for a 10 quid saving anyways :)

Thats not entirely true. If you buy online you are covered by the Distance Selling Regulations. They are obliged to take it back if you simply change your mind.

Exclusion from their '30 day guarantee' does not affect your statutory rights to either a cooling of period or the right to inspect before payment is made.

I also bought the £140 deal luckily there was a currys next door who price matched on forza so saved 2 quid bought a sarnie with the two quid. For some reason Nurburgring seems to be playable on mine? I did check storage and it claims to have over 300mb free although the box it was packaged in says it's a 256?

This seems to be coming back into stock.

Combine with this deal - http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/614156/pure-lego-batman-black-wireless-xbo

And thats £130 for a new 360 with Forza 3, Lego, Pure and 2 x Controllers!

This is an amazing deal. However can someone confirm if this is the Jasper range?
For those that don't know that is the new range of XBOX 360s with better design that don't get the ring of death problem after a while.

Is this still available on line? Can one buy more than one? Cheers.

Yes its a Jasper - i picked up one earlier in the week - manufacture date of October last year.
External packing says 256mb memory but its actually 512
And yes you can buy them online although all the shops now near me (which did show out of stock) all have 5+ in

This is not strictly true, if it is unopened the manager may use their discretion and refund it, but it is not company policy to allow returns at all.

Yes they can both play on XBOX Live fine. The arcade just doesn't have a Hard Drive.

IMO, the 360 hard drive is needed.
