As you may already know, Microsoft has announced today that USB sticks (upto 16 GB per stick, 32 GB total) may now be used to store game-data. So even though this is considerably cheaper than the bundle with a 20 gig hard-drive, the performance is the same if you happen to have a USB stick lying around. My experience is that 20 gig is moooore than enough for game-purposes, and for videos etc you were already able to attach external harddrives.

So basically, you get a Xbox 360 with memory for 90 bucks + the price of an USB stick.

Just to make sure everyone is aware, this is a pre-owned one.

Core 360's are years old and unreliable. I've owned two cores and both gave up the ghost last year.

I don't really think this is that good a deal as you can shop around and get a 360 arcade with games for around £100.

Ive owned a core, arcade, premium (20gb) and elite. The only one that has survived is the core...

The cheapest 360 currently is £107 at Currys apart from this one.

Are they pre-owned?

In all honesty it's best not to buy a 360 unless it's a Jasper (it will say 12.1A on the back by the power rating - the core's most definitely are not Jasper units and do not have integrated memory). The rest all have the same manufacturing faults and will fail at some point. There's also rumours of a slim to be released sometime in the future.

Good job there is a 3 year warrenty then

That only covers the Red Ring of Death (3 lights) and if these are Core units are they brand new? Otherwise you'll only get a few months (if that) warranty from gamestation.

3 red rings and an E something error. These account for most of all failures.
#10
The E74 error and 3RRoD are similar. But the more important question, are these consoles used. Gamestation have it on their website as £89.99 for pre-owned units. In this case you're only covered by Gamestation.

*edit* and if they are pre-owned, the cheaper 20GB pack is better as you get the HDD, wireless pad and HD cable.

where did you find arcade for 107 at Currys ? As on their website - 149...
#12
Is this second-hand or not?
#13
£90 for a pre-owned Core system is not a good price. They are very unreliable systems and I wouldn't touch them.

A brand new Arcade has been knocking around for £100 recently so £90 for a second hand console that will be at least 2 years old isn't good.

Cold from me I'm afraid.
#14
Come on OP! Is this pre owned or not?..
#15
Yes it is.
#16
I was in Walsall Gamestation today too! :D
#17
I think this deal skinks ....sorry op...:oops:....as the core`s are the beta`s of the console..;-) more faults than enough.
I havve just purchased an arcade new never used with everything for £81 delivered (guaranteed jtaggable I belive as it comes with the 256MC. :-D) from ebay..
I also picked up a premium 60G HD all extras and 5 months old from new (catalouge job kays) for £85 delivered the other day also but unsure if this 1 is jataggable ...good chance it si thou. both should still be in warranty with MS also 3yrs for RROD...:-D
So I can only vote cold as this is a core and a terrible price for a 4 or 5yr old model .
#18
Crap deal!

You can easily buy a second hand arcade jasper for less than this.

You'd be have to be pretty ignorant to think this is a hot deal.
banned#19
A new arcade was only £99.99 the other week. This xbox is almost 100% going to get RROD at some point, waste of money with no gurantee. You can get a second hand jasper console with a controller for less than this

I had the three lights outside the three year warranty and they fixed it for me gratis.
#23
Not a good deal really. Old model, known issues, second hand and almost the same price as brand new, new version.... hmm
#24
Please people, don't buy a Core.

Old motherboard (v1 Xenon)
90nm CPU & GPU
Regular heatsinks which just don't cut it for the amount of heat produced.

All in all, it's a RRoD prone SKU - especially when second hand.
#25
gotta be one of the coldest deals i've seen lately
#26
Cold for all the reasons already posted.
Surprised this reached 150+ degrees.
#27
how has this got hot this is one of the worst deals iv ever seen

"Worst episode ever"
#29
To repeat what others have said; Don't buy a core. Old faulty things....

Now if only someone would buy the Jasper I am selling on ebay.....
#30
Rubbish offer there is always the arcade version knocking about at a £100 with the 256 built in memory hdmi wireless pad and usually a couple of games and the jasper chipset these old cores are prone to failure i doubt there is any original release date cores still in the wild as they all went wrong i would pay the extra £10 and have the extra features of the arcade and be safe in the knowledge that my console may last longer than 6months.
#31
This is a terrible offer and deserves to go in the "how the heck did that become hot" list! Voted cold and see other people are as the temperature is going down, sorry op but others have explained already why :-(
#32
Voted cold, but it would be hot if it was new and I suspect most people who voted hot assumed that it was.
#33
to all the people that say dont buy this because its unreliable..its just luck with the consoles
mine was made on the 10/2006 and failed exactly a year after buying it then been fine until last week..when it red ringed again
however they are going to repair it for free even though its over 3 years old so cant complain..
so if you want one go for it...all the xbox packages have gone up now
