Can I just say before the ps3 zealots get here, that this is a very good price for someone who doesn't want their console to have a hi def movie player, or wireless and just WANTS TO PLAY GAMES!!! ....:whistling:

very likely given how old the other ones are.
#6
the arcade i got from game had hdmi but not a falcon chip but not had any problems with it yet and its two months old if that helps
#7
Well the Arcade SKu has HDMI as standard, so yep. It's the old Core that doesn't.
#8
Nice price!

Anorther question:
Do these newer models run any quieter?
I have borrowed an older one and they seem fairly loud imo.

Dont suppose a cushion near the fan to keep the noise down when I was playing Forza2 at 3am this morning would be a good idea then :thumbsup:

The difference between the arcade and the pro? Arcade doesn't have a hard disk and doesn't come with a headset.

I got my arcade from Gamestation just before Christmas for £150. I would imagine it will come down to this price again, but i guess if you really must have one now and really really like Forza it's about as good a deal as you're going to find. If you're not a fan of Forza, i would hold off because it doesn't have much resale value.

Think I,ll wait for now. Keep reading on here that a price cut is coming?
As flusteredpie pointed out, forza 2 is good, but resale isn't cos pricematch with Argos at Currys/PcWorld gets you this game for £7.

yeh the forza game is ok but not amazing but still its free with the console
#22
I feel quite strongly that the lack of HD really limits your future potential, say if you wanted to save an expansion pack or such for a game.

I'm not really a fan of Forza 2, and it tends to come packaged alongside Viva Pinata and an additional control pad with the more expensive non-arcade deals.

I suppose if you are 100% you will not be needing to use a HD, this is fine, but I feel that the Arcade as a concept is a trap for people who don't really know what things entail. I can't recommend this deal with any sincerity I'm afraid, despite the apparently cheap price.

great price > heat + rep added :thumbsup:

#watch out for the GDC announcements this week > should be good :)

In itself I'd agree with you, but I know 4 people who have had an arcade (or core) and only 2 have felt the NEED to add a hard drive... of the other 2, one is a 'casual' gamer, (a couple of hours a week) and the other plays a lot, and still finds no need for a hard disk...:roll:

The arcade console has an HDMI port and is fully HD....

EDIT: OH HARD DISK. Sorry! I totally agree..

@flusteredpie
HD refers to hard drive in Jecht's reply not High Def
#28
Yep, just noticed :)

Just cus it has the falcon chipset it dosnt mean its safe from the red ring of death ^^

I also bought the £150 Arcade from Gamestation before Christmas then bought a 120GB drive from HK for £60. Was a cheap way of getting an almost Elite equivalent.

Not saying you're wrong in your assertion, but theres nothing in that article saying the box was a falcon chipset? Or that it was in fact the RROD; People in the comments are saying that 3 ring light appears in other situations.
#32
I dunno...

Play.com has:

http://www.play.com/Games/Xbox360/4-/4977139/Xbox-360-Core-Console-+-Forza-Motorsport-2-+-Viva-Pinata-+-Xbox-Live-Arcade-Unplugged-Vol-1-+-Extra-Controller/Product.html?dpr=2524

Xbox 360 Core Console + Forza Motorsport 2 + Viva Pinata + Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged Vol 1 + Extra Controller

£199.99 Free Delivery

So that's an extra 2 games + an extra controller + quidco for just 25quid more... well... less. So I think the play.com deal is better.

Out of stock now. Managed to get one

Anyone know where the cheapest place to buy a headset from, and an extra controller?

think the cheapst controller is from dvd.co.uk at £22.98 but for a penny extra you can get it from shopto and they deliver super fast

Cheapest decent headset is again from dvd.co.uk at £7.49 delivered looks snazzy even if tis not official

Thanks, I'll have a look.

I consider myself quite a hardcore gamer and I've got no hard drive - only a 512MB memory card. I have not even used half the space yet (and I've even downloaded a game from xbox arcade!). Unless you are downloading demo's or a lot of content; don't worry about the hard drive.
