This seems like a great deal to me, especially considering that this is nearly double the price from the only other 2 retailers i've found selling this at £39.99 compared to Argos' £24.99 and comes with a 5 year manufacturers warranty!!!

In order to keep the costs down, arrange for reserve and collect at the store, otherwise there will be a £4.95 charge, which would still be a lot cheaper but unnecessary additional cost.

The Xbox live Arcade stick includes:

* Official licensed Xbox 360 product * Full-height joystick for the ultimate arcade experience * 360° spinner control allows for all new types of gaming experiences * PC USB compatible* Works great with all Xbox 360 games * Includes 3 Xbox Live® Arcade games: Frogger®, Timepilot & Astropop * Includes FREE Xbox Live® Gold Trial membership


Hope this helps anyone looking for something like this. :)

Only 2 year warranty, only 48 hour live trial!

I'm not too sure but technically, since it's a gold membership, i don't see why it shouldn't be allowed to be added on.
I guess i'll findout within the next few months, as my live subscription is running out soon.

anyone know if this stick is any better for DOA4 than the official joypad? :\
#7
It's a good deal, voted hot, but surely the trial membership can't be added on, as it is a trial, be even better deal if it can, voted hot & rep given.

Yes...it'll just add it to your existing subscription ;-)
it did for me a few months ago
#9
Nice, thanks for the info, does anyone know if you can add the 48hour ones also?
#10
you certainly can, i tried that first before the month one, just incase
#11
Thanks, +rep (when ive tried it and it works :))
#12
You may want to get additional verification, it was just after xmas when i did it....it may have changed
#13
What about the 3 free games - i cant find any mention of them. Also are they free full versions or just the 'trail versions' (as is the case with XBLA packaged bundles)?
#14
I tried adding a 48 hour one to my account and it would not allow it. That was last week, just for info.

There you go then...sorry for getting your hopes up. :oops:

#16

i think that's because it's called a 48 hour trial. I'm pretty sure the month adds on fine

Not in stock anywhere in n.ireland

Its only a 2 year warranty (so says the box) will be taking a print of the site so argos can honor the warranty for 5 years!
#21
And its only a 48 hour trial not a month :( its defo going back now.
#22
[SIZE=2]What could be useful for some is that it has a usb connection so could be used on a PC as well.[/SIZE]

Not according to the Madcatz website...
I just downloaded the manual and it clearly states the warranty is "5 years for north american and european customers"
I guess if anybody wants to confirm this they can contact the warranty hotline on 01908 336530

Link to website is here

Good luck

Nice find, reserved one for collection tomorrow.
#26
Bought one of these last week..... Good price but they are difficult to use.... I play a lot of arcade games (mainly Gyrus and Jetpac) and find the 360 controller easier to use.

I am returning mine tomorrow.......

Nice find tho!

I'm surprised to hear of the contents, i mean, the argos website states it comes with 5 years warranty and someone has also done some good work and delved further into this and found that it's supposed to come with 5 years warranty.

The information i posted regarding the contents came from the Play.com website, which is selling the same item as a set, which is how the Argos version should be identical to, so i don't know how the months trial has been swapped for a 2 day trial...... something very strange is going on :?

It doesn't say any time length on this description. Maybe they spotted their mistake and changed it though.
Still a good find. Bought one earlier, very happy. :)

Picked mine up before from Argos, and it says clear as day on the packaging 2 Year Warranty.

Nice product, stick is quite loose and takes a bit of getting used to. If you consider that the games are worth almost a tenner, then your getting the controller for £15, I think it's a bargain.

Dave.
