Okay, so if you say £199.99 which is the retail of the arcade pack, you're getting the following for £49.99

Halo 3 - £39.99
Assaaines Creed - £39.99
Fifo 08 - £24.99
Viva Pinata - £17.99
Forza Motorsport 2 - £17.99
Wireless Controller - £29.99

Which gives you a saying of £120 +

what a deal heat added :)

The deal is fantastic value.

However

As far as i am aware the arcade console cannot get an xbox live gold account which means no online gaming. The game this mainly effects is halo3 which is brilliant fun online but without the online options is only average (this game was designed for MP). The reason the 360 is the best console to own right now is the multiplayer online.

Still voted hot though but hope this is useful for potential purchasers.

p.s. you can buy the hard drive later but its much more expensive than if you get the premium from the off.

This link is for a premium xbox with halo3 / viva pinata / forza / 2 wireless controllers. 20 quid more (but without fifa08 / assassins creed), a better deal in my opinion but that does depend on how important online is for you.

is this deal instore only > cant find if on the website

edit > found it :thumbsup:

I posted this deal a while back when i picked on up I still think its amazing deal, someone elsxe then posted it again did'nt really get much heat..

I'm almost certain this is bollox. Why would MS shoot themselves in the foot by having a 'next gen' console you can't game online on? Especially as you have to pay THEM for the privelage. Unless I'm a completely mistaken you are wrong. ALL Xbox 360s can game online. You don't need the optional hard drive for this.

All xbox 360s are basically the same apart from some come with different sized hard drives, and the newer consoles come with an HDMI port and supposedly a more reliable chipset. Other than that they are all basically the same

Back on topic, really good deal :-)

it CAN use XBOX Live Gold as it comes with a storage device [the 256mb Memory Unit] > you only need a Hard Drive if you want to download Movies, TV Shows, Cartoons Shows [UK starts on 11th Dec 2007], Music Vid's, Game Trailers, Game Demos, Gamerpics, Themes + More.

# if you want a Hard Drive, i suggest a 120GB [107GB available] instead of the 20GB [13.5GB Available] :thumbsup:

Why is he a PS fanboy?!

He's just really THICK!!! :w00t: :w00t:

I'm a PS fanboy - don't buy a 360 buy a PS3! Online is free, it's not as good as 360 online but for zero pounds and zero pence the service is ok!!

To clarify:

With a 360 arcade you can use xbox live with a gold account - if you buy it. With a 360 pro you get a FREE 30 day xbox live gold account trial, with the arcade you do not. Simple as that.

Of course you can! The Arcade comes WITH a wireless controller as standard.

Plus, they give you the Viva Pinata, Forza 2 and Wireless Controller pack (£34.99 on Shopto.net) in there as well as Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed.

Decent deal, but Forza and Viva are bundled in one box.

The core/arcade is EXACTLY the same console as a premium/pro/halo 3 package (and for that matter the elite) in terms of basic functionality. The differences between the various packages are in the bundled peripherals and a few aesthetics (plus the HDMI port, which should be standard on virtually all consoles from here on out but might be missing from some of the last remaining older stock). Oh, and the ongoing saga of the various revisions of the internals (the new falcon processor, different motherboard configurations etc) but that still seems to be fairly random pot luck across all configurations as to which one you get.

For the record the differences between the arcade and the pro are:

The pro comes with a 20gb hard drive, the arcade with a 256Mb memory stick. This basically means the arcade will not be able to download demos and will not be able to run old Xbox games.
The pro comes with an ethernet cable and headset, the arcade does not.
The pro has a chrome DVD tray, the arcade makes do with the same off-white as the rest of the console.
Both the Pro and Arcade should come with a 1 month Live Gold trial (although is someone could confirm that it'd be appreciated).
The arcade package comes with 5 Xbox Live Arcade games, the pro does not.
The old core package only came with a wired controller and a 64 Mb card.

Most importantly, last time I checked, the pro comes with a HD component cable, the arcade only gets a composite cable. This means you WILL need to spend extra money to get the most out of the console unless you've got a HDMI cable hanging around.

The PS3 is complete rubbish online.

It's like someone giving you a peice of poo for free (PSN) or paying £30 a year for a Ferrari (Xbox Live).

Good analogy that, eh?
#27
Sorry, i was just trying to help .

Im sure i had read a few articles saying what i insinuated such as this article here back in the days of the Core but it seems like this was misinformed.

There are certainly advantages of buying a harddrive but it seems the one regarding xbox live is not the case (some games use it for caching/ extra space for downloading demos / etc).

Its certainly the best current gen gaming console available based on its library of games so definately worth a purchase!

No

Do you own both? If not, then you're opinion means nothing. PS3 online does what it needs to do - you play against other people.

As regards the whistles and bells, then XBOX live wins as the store is a lot better and looks nicer. However, you pay for it. I actually download more stuff from the PSN store than I do from XBOX marketplace because I have 60GB compared to 20GB HDD.

If you want to play online games, then there's absolutely no difference between the 2, apart from the fact that MS charge you. Only downside are that you can't message friends in-game on PSN but you can on XBOX live.

The uninformed comments here are really quite depressing!

You can use wireless controllers, you can access XBL, the core/premium/elite all have the same functionality. Anyone who syas different is either dense or a PS3 fanboy.

Its a great deal by the way and I'm tempted to replace my non-hdmi premium with a HDMI core, but keep my HDD
#30
Ive seen this deal on here before? But nobody seemed to pick up on it.
Bought it a few weeks ago, but managed to get some of the games swapped over.
Its been around for ages, and many stores now do not have Fifa, Creed etc, so you may need to swap your choice
#31
great deal

This looks like a really good deal. I'm sorely tempted to get one "for the family" ;)

Pros for 360: Cheaper, more games, better online.

Pros for PS3: Blu-ray

Ugh why turn this in to a PS3 versus Xbox 360 debate yet again? This deal is for a 360 and it's a good deal. Both consoles have their merits and demerits. Learn to live with them. Here's a tip for choosing between a 360 and a PS3, buy the console that has the games you like. If you need HD movies then it's obvious which one to choose. In fact if you have the money buy both because they are both worth buying.

I own both (multiples of each as well), the PS3 is far behind what it should be doing so the argument is null. You do indeed get what you pay for so saying there's no difference (from a supposed owner of both) is very strange indeed. Voice-chat is standard across all games, united friends list; many things make it far superior online, it's just a shame it isn't free, but I'd rather pay if it means I get to keep the great service.

Sorry for dragging this back up, but does anyone know if this will be a falcon? My 360 has just died in time for Christmas and has been sent back to MS for repair but it wont be back in time for the big day, and I'm getting a load of new games to play :x

Gonna buy a 2nd console, this seems to be the best deal around atm. I may as well get a falcon tho and sell my repaired one when it comes back.
