Noob post, so apologies if someone has already mentioned this elsewhere.
Found what might be a good buy, even though this might be dropped soon/new XBOX 360, PS3 etc.
Does not include Hard Drive
Xbox 360 console. As with the premium edition, three powerful core processors pump out 720p/1080i output, 16x9 cinematic aspect ratio, anti-aliasing for smooth textures, full surround sound and DVD playback right out of the box.
Xbox 360 Faceplate. Like no other console before, the Xbox 360 console allows customisation and a removable Faceplate that comes in stylish 'chill' (white), which can be swapped out with other custom Faceplates to reflect gamers' personalities or decor.
Xbox 360 Standard AV Cable. This connects gamers to the world of Xbox 360, delivering great next-generation graphics and games using standard-definition connections.
Please note that this post refers to the core system, as originally stated. Some posters are complaining that this does not come with a hard drive. The core system has never come with a hard drive, so this is not so relevant.
If you want to buy a core system today, this represents a good deal. If you want to buy something that might be out tomorrow, wait until tomorrow.

Don't forget that although Quidco says that cashback is 2% from Play.com, it's actually 4% making the final price for this deal £143.99.
