This is a great deal for anyone new to the 360. I'd be all over it if I didn't already have one :thumbsup:
#2
PGR4 and Gears of War no longer listed as options.

Mass Effect and Too Human replace them as options.

Loks like Mass Effect, Halo 3 and Forza 2 for me!

thats a fantastic deal really. Ive had my Premium 60GB for about 3 weeks which i bought from game and it came with 2 games for £199. Im actually tempted to see if i can return this to game under the 28 day refund policy. Not sure what my chances are but if successful, i will pay the extra and get one of these deals!

Is the elite really a better bet over the 60gb Premium? I know the hard drive space etc is more but isnt the Elite using older chips and is also noisier?

I would have thought these days the chips would be the same on the inside compared to the 60GB. So your getting double the space and its in black, which in all honesty, looks alot better than the original
#6
hmmm - but the 60gb is a lot "newer" than the 120gb Elite which has been out for ages.
I have the bog standard 20gb whcih i got in December 2005 and its so bleeding noisy (despite having the newest DVD drive put in after i sent it to Microsoft after getting the RROD) so was wondering if any updated version would be worth going for. I am not bothered about HD space i will never fill my 20gb let alone 60 or 120.

I do agree about the black looking better, but my accesories are all the white colour so it would look weird!! (black would look sexy under my Samsung TV tho!)

All 3 models of 360 available now have the same internals (dvd drive, chips, fans, motherboard etc), the price you pay reflects the included accessories, HDD etc.

The DVD drive's noise is more to do with purposefully high disc-access speeds than a generic fault. The best news is that the dashboard update in Autumn will allow you to install a game in its entirety to the hard drive, only requiring the DVD drive to spin up once when you start the game to validate the disc.

60Gb is probably fine for you, but in the case of nearly anything that sells with a hard drive, many people end up with buyers remorse when the HDD reaches max capacity :roll:

Shame about the games 4me, excellent games for someone who does not own a 360 but for someone wishing to replace their 360 or upgrade 120 gig version not so good unless you happen to know some idiot who does not realise forza2 can be had for less than £10 and the other games around the same price so you can sell em for 15 to 20
#10
yeah i have the 60GB version now, and quite like the idea of installing games to the drive. Even though some of it will be force (Hello GTA4, incompatible more or less with my 360) and when you think they would requires maybe 6-7 GB each, you'll soon be running out of space

So does that mean that they all now have HDMI outputs and can all be used for viewing playing/streaming HDTV downloads? (Not MKV's still though? :x) The games would be a bonus use for me!
#12
Seems when this update does come out, all us tiny 20gb (which you only get 14gb to use) owners are all gonna be feeling left short once we've installed 2 games and filled our hdds.
#13
I think this update is a good idea, but i also think the option of installing games is a cover for failing on Microsofts part. So many DREs on certain titles, GTA being the absolute pits for me. Brand new disc, brand new 360, and it just wont run for more than 5 minutes at a time, yet everything else is perfect. One party will say its the discs fault, other party will say its the DVD drives fault. So giving the option to install onto the HD, will no doubt solve this problem.

I've never had a problem with games failing to load, although I am on 360 #4 after a spate of RRODs (which are much, much less of a problem on these newer models)

All have HDMI outputs, and therefore DVD upscaling along with media streaming and playback off connected drives. Good thing too, the Arcade only comes with a composite cable :thumbsup:

Fantastic price for the Elite and any of those games there(except Dead Or Alive) are some of the best games around and will keep you going for months.


Depends on which DOA it is, if it's DOA4 then I still think that is the best fighting game on the 360 (although admittedly it only has 2 to date) and if it's that xtreme volleyball disaster then they can shove that up their arses sideways.

That's it, @ £200 and a decent game bundle with the elite version (got to have the black one and that big, for a game console, HDD) & I'm in.

But.

I'll wait a few weeks until the initial surge has cleared stocks of all the earlier models
(and the net has reliable info on how to recognise a true 'Jesper' version - the new SKU with the 65nm CPU and 65nm GPU = more reliable, cooler running & much more energy efficient).

This has been the big step forward I have been waiting for and seeing as they have introduced it with a price cut I am satisfied that the new XBox 360's are now well worth buying.

The 3yr warranty (ok, so it's supposed to be for the old RROD only......but if you really can't get a failing unit to go RROD by now you really ought to give up) seals the deal.

3yrs warranty ought to be standard with all CE goods....although UK sales law does protect you well beyond 1 or 2yrs with CE goods at these prices - it is simply not reasonable to expect only 1 or 2yrs 'life' out of goods at this price & British law says so clearly (the trouble is almost no-one ever goes to the trouble of taking the CE corps to court to enforce their existing rights).

Good to see they have definitely upped the spec of the unit and
(unlike certain other game companies)
not used it as an excuse to keep prices at their higher level.

I'm a very 'casual' gamer so the XBox 360s huge game catalogue is probably of more interest to me than anyone else's.

(and yes, I have relatives & friends with Wiis & PS3s, I've seen & tried them all, obviously the Wii is not as 'advanced' but is a lot of fun with certain games, but the XBox 360 & the PS3 looked & sounded exactly the same to me)

I think their (MS's) next move ought to be a decent cut in the price of the HDDs so that buyers of the earlier 20gb model & the HDD-less arcade models can cheaply upgrade......and a few quid off of some of their peripherals would be in order too.
Hopefully.

This is a great deal.

Halo 3
Lost Odyssey
Forza 2
Gears Of War

are all games of the highest quality, 360 exclusives and worth buying the console for on their own. You can also pick up great games like Bioshock and Dead Rising (another 360 exclusive) for around £12 new. There are some really good deals on the 360 at the moment, I can see 360 hardware becomming hard to get hold of in the christmas run up at these sort of prices. 360 is easily the best value console on the market at the moment.

I'm thinking of upgrading after sending my console back 4 time over the past couple of years, but how will I get all my save games off the 20gb hdd and onto the Elite ???

Cheers,

:thinking:

It comes with a hard drive migration cable.

Easiest way is via the transfer cable/kit which is available, free of charge, from the MS website.

My mate found to his dismay that the Elite DOES NOT come with the migration cable.
When the Elite was launched in the US the first batch of Elite consoles came with it, but the cable was then only available either with the 120Gb upgrade kit or via the page on xbox.com listed above.

There is also *rumours* of an upgrade kit for Arcade users: 60Gb Drive, Headset, 3 Months of Xbox Live and PGR4. But don't quote me on that :whistling:
#25
Yu can get hod of a migration cable. Thjere is one doing the rounds on avforums for example or I am sure they can be purchased now maybe on ebay ?
#26
You can actually just use a normal sata to usb adaptor (could be a lot cheaper).
