Yes I agree that is what I am doing. However I thought this was the best deal at the moment for those who cant wait!!!!
#3
still a fantastic price for a brand new elite.

dont forget the Quidco!...only about £3 or so but still....better in your pocket than anyone elses eh! :-D
#4
Certainly a good price & can't see them dropping any lower than this
#5
Good price, the new xbox 360S adds nothing for £50 more, the WIFI addition is utter useless; always use wired LAN for lowest latency/ping rate!

I've got the standard 360 wireless adaptor & was very impressed by it. Never had any issues with lag, even when the xbox is a couple of rooms away from the router :thumbsup:

The Xbox360S also adds 130 gig more hard drive space in comparison to the xbox elite,when you add that up with the smaller size and wifi...i think all of that is well worth an extra £50
:roll:

If you're on the fence about buying a new toy, the new one may be worth waiting for. But if you've already got a 360, or are tight-fisted, these are more than fine.

"I could easily get more than GAME is offering on the trade in for my Elite, they are a rip off"

Oh really, you think you can get a better deal on your used system, when Sainsburys are selling an Elite with games, if a little naff, for £150.....

Decent deal but I think you can guess I think it would be better to wait for the new 360 with bigger HDD.

They definitely will in the wake of the new one.
#11
I'm buying the new, sick of the noise/lack of space on my old 20GB Pro. Going to be trading in that, and a wii.
The new xbox also has smaller chips, and a much better heatsink/fan, which means less heat, less power, and less noise :)

But as others have said, it's a good deal for those who can't wait and you get a three year warranty (rrod only).
#12
Stores have been instructed to send back all Xbox 360 Elite stock anyway, so don't expect to find this in stock for long.

Unless you have 50 games to install, then 250gb is completely useless since M$ doesnt let you save videos or music onto the hdd like the PS3 does.

Trust me, even a 60gb console is good enough. The people who complain about how loud the old consoles were are the same people who were too stingy to fork out 30 quid for a bigger HDD to install games.

So the above poster is correct, your paying for a tackier, cheaper looking xbox with wi-fi, which is awful for online gaming anyway, and the only added benefits for the new console are the extra usb ports and the built in optical out. If your a very casual gamer / family gamer then the kinect port may be of some use, but in all honesty your better off spending the £100 it costs for kinect on a Wii anyway.

Really? because I have almost filled the 250gb Hard drive that came with my elite.Because you can save other things on the hd, other than music videos? like games? so they don't run off the disc.

It all comes down to how you use it. you obviously don't use it the same way I do, and you really shouldn't generalise when expressing an opinion.

As for telling people to rather buy the wii instead of the kinect? Have you actually used the Kinect hardware yet? And if not, then how can you express an opinion about how good it is?
The wifi is a welcome bonus in the new 360, no more having to buy that expensive add-on.

I'm not typically an MS fanboy, I have an xbox elite, a ps3 ad a wii(all for the erm, kids,really), I just hate it seeing people generalise opinions based on flakey experiences.

To be honest ,I think the 50 quid is well worth the knowledge that you basically have no limits to how much you download/install on to your hard drive

60gb may be adequate for you,and I understand that times are hard and every penny counts
but even if we work it out as if were only paying for a hard drive

[CENTER]150(POUNDS) ÷ 120(GB)=£1.25
200(POUNDS) ÷ 250(GB)=£0.80[/CENTER]

the xbox360S is better value for your money

For those who already have an xbox elite can easily upgrade the HD to 250GB using SPECIFIC Western Digital drives only: http://www.ebuyer.com/product/150513#reviews (you might find it cheaper elsewhere)

OK Guys & Gals.

It's my little boys birthday soon & he wants an Xbox 360. He has a budget of £120 so don't mind the basic model as he is only 7 years old.

Will the current Xbox 360 come down by the 15th July or are there any great deals out there for this type of money
#20
Pre-owned prices will crash, I can see new ones doing the same too with regards to the Arcade and Elite.

Wrong, the 360 even has Video and Music icons on the dashboard so I have no idea how you're so misinformed. 60GB isn't that much really, I only have a few games and demos installed on mine and I'm already creeping towards the limit. The new console is said to be far quieter anyway even with games installed to the HDD. The current 360 isn't so bad with games installed, but the tiny, noisy fans are still very noticeable even when they're not actually very loud.

Not to mention the fact that the newer consoles should (although it does of course remain to be seen) be more reliable given they're using a completely new hardware revision completely unlike the previous 360s.

God I must be getting it completely wrong with my Xbox 360 then... because I have quite a few music cds saved on the hard drive. I admit it was really difficult to do as I had to click on the rip cd icon (or whatever it was called) but I could do it.

Admittedly I prefer my PS3 for that as its more flexible in bit rates and file types (I still like to use ATRAC for the gapless). But your comment about the hard drive not being able to store music is... well... just plain wrong!

Are you a fanboy?
#23
A number of you have said you've installed games on the HDD... do you still need to have the relevant game you want to play in the CD drive when you're playing it? Sorry if it sounds a really obvious question, but it did on my old 20gb Premium a while back!

If you still need the disc present to play, it's probably not worth me moving up to an elite, super elite or slim, but it might be an idea if it does...

As for adding music to the HDD, would this then also be useable with the likes of Lips if you had it?

For obvious reasons you still need the disc, but it only reads it upon starting the game resulting in far less noise.

you need the cd, otherwise everyone would rent the game, install it, and then give it back.

Installing games to your HDD makes them load faster and makes the 360 quieter

could you stretch an extra £30 and get this? It is really worth it for the extra space.

Don't bother with the arcade, you will find yourself paying for the other stuff afterwards which will cost more seperately.

Get this + 12 months of XBL and for £175 you're sorted.

mate 2 months ago I would have voted this hot and probably bought one. But now that the New 360 S is due out in a month, this is unfortunately cold since it has a bigger HD, WiFiN, Whisper quiet, toslink out etc only for £35 more.

I just realised he was 7.

Forget about Xbox Live for him... he will get abused or learn some 'new words'

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/698389/xbox-360-120gb-elite-with-forza-m3-

^ That is very good if he likes Racing games and football games, he will love that.

At that age any words he will hear will be repeated in front of... others in the real world.

Hey,

I don't think it has been mentioned, but it looks like this deal is online only. I went into my local store yesterday, and this bundle was £180. They had another bundle with FIFA WC2010 and FM3 for £170, which I suppose is better value - you could trade in those two games for about £20 I imagine.

Still looking for the holy grail of 360 deals though...!! Somewhere that would let me spend my Nectar points would be awesome (Argos/Sainsbury's in store, or Amazon online).

Cheers,

Su
#36
Go to Sainsbury's :

Get The Elite + FM3 + FWC2010

Trade in FWC2010 For Fifa 10

Sorted!
#37
Right this minute, its a good price, if you need one today or whatever.

In a month, as said, I think this will be overpriced. Ive still got an original 20gb Pro (its my 4th one because of RROD, but each one was free and the original was off ebay anyway :D).

I wont be taking up the Slim when it comes out as I dont want to pay early adopters prices, Im thinking around Christmas time will be a good time to buy one.

If you are in the market for an Elite and can wait - do, you will probably save something like £20-£30 just for waiting 3 weeks.
#38
So is ther a good chance elites will drop even more? I don't want to spend £180+ on the newer console as I just need a 360 for my grandparents house in Spain so looking for a cheap one

The current elite 120GB packages may drop a little more (maybe to £130-ish or even lower) as retailers clear their remaining stock for the new S model.

The new 360S is pretty unlikely (hope I'm wrong :-D ) to drop in price for a long time (over 12 months from release) as they begin to scale up their yields/profit margins on the new model, unless of course Sony forces their hand with PS3 Slim price cuts, again not likely, unless for PS3 Slim Move bundles.
.
The 360S Kinect bundle I suspect maybe the better deal (early price drops?) if you are into the Kinect stuff!
