Again, don't know if this is good or not. So do as you wish.

Seems a special offer on as well with this:

Save £100 when you buy this Xbox 360 console with Sega Superstars Tennis, Banjoo Kazooie and Viva Pinata triple game pack (568/7765). To receive this offer add both items to your trolley. Offer ends 24th July 2009.

(So if I am Right, you get the 3 games for £20???)

Excellent price for those wanting just the console - good find.
#3
yes excellent price.... do you think they are trying to shift the UK Elites as they are Falcons????

not that it would bother me you still get a warranty, if I was after another 360 id have no problems at that price..

There is nothing wrong with Falcons, I have had one for a year now and no problems what so ever. Sometimes I think this RROD issue is over exagerated. People just want to return their Falcon based XBOX's and hope to exchange it for a newer Jasper based console.

There is. Otherwise why would there be different revisions? There's even a revision after Jasper that compines the CPU and GPU onto one chip. Valhalla I think the name is.

If I wasn't skint, I'd check if it was a Jasper and snap this up!

P.S. My mate had a Falcon Elite and it was too noisy for him after about half a year or so of use. Sold it and got a Jasper & 60GB HDD and it's much quieter. The Silence of Music is bliss.:p

The newer ones (Jaspers) have fixed the overheating issue which caused the RROD.

From a production standpoint it is cheaper to produce the console with the newer smaller components. Yes it fixes or tries to fix overheating issues but they also want to make more money per console sale. The older the 360 gets the cheaper it is to produce. Look at the PSONE its 10 years old and probably costs sony about 5 quid per unit to make. I would assume that this price reduction is only on to get rid of there stock before the newer 219.99 batch comes in.

that is what I am saying about the price drop, I am sure I read somewhere that no UK elites are Jaspers, I thing the Resi Evil edition will be the first..

^ wow - i dont know where to start...

you know that its the fans/DVD-Rom drive that is responsible for the noise right? not the 'Flacon chipset'.

there are currently around 3 different types of fans being installed into XBOX 360's & 4 different DVD-Rom drives, & some will be louder than others.

id want to see a picture of the power socket on the console to check it has the split down the middle compared to sinlge line on the falcons..... if I have read wrong then fair enough, I am only going on by what I read..

I guess that depends what sort of games you like
#16
mate i know what you mean i dont care if mines a jasper or falcon it could be a horse for all i care i turn it on and it works. done that for 2 years now with no problems
#17
I am thinking of taking my Xbox Elite back as it freezes every so often but mine was one of the first elites and I paid over £300 for it at launch so this is a great deal!

Does anybody know if the Xbox 360 Premium on Amazon (£160) is Jasper or not? I think it is, if I am correct in thinking that the Premium consoles (as oppose to the "Pro") are all Jasper models.

I have a £20 Amazon voucher to use and going to get a 360 sooner or later, so may just take the plunge. Also, anybody know of any codes for Amazon that work currently? I can't find any. Cheers.
#20
Good deal, think I'll get one then sell all the bits just in case my Elite decides to die in the future :-D

Snap . I expect it to red ring after each crash and it never does :( mine is an early elite about 2 years old I think paid £329 or 349 .

Not sure if it is the hard drive or the console (causing it to lcok up) but the Elite that I am using is very very noisy and whiny :whistling:

I should really use the brand new elite i have with the hard drive to test to see whats going on but cannot be bothered with the hassle with drm, i just wish the elite would 3 red ring and be done with it and get a repair or new one

No i bought a 60 gb premium yesterday from blockbusters and the production date is september 08,its a falcon.
#23
This is the best deal I've seen on an Elite. I just picked mine up. They tried to charge an extra fiver but I showed them the email confirmation and all was cool.

Yep, it's a Falcon but my old premium (?) is one of the ancient models with a 203watt power supply. The DVD drive grinds and it crashed every now and again and there's no HDMI. It's noisy as anything too.

I'm just ****** off that I have to go through the whole deal of sending serial numbers in the post to get a data transfer cable.
#24
Question to all the informed folks - I have a £65 Argos voucher so this would be a £125 purchase for me. Should I go for it (as it seems to be a Falcon) or try and get a Jasper elsewhere?

why dont you just redownload, surely that would be quicker than waiting for data cable??
#26
Better be quick. Stock seems to be running low in the North West at least.

That's true, actually. Forgot about that.

Yes, I'm fully aware it's not the Falcon chipset itself. But I see where the misunderstanding came from.

As you must be aware, the Jasper runs cooler than the Falcon, hence less hot air needing to be expelled hence less fan noise. Hence, the Jasper is quieter than the Falcon. That was what I was saying.

Anyhoo. Pointless discussion this in this thread now as the deal is marked as expired. Just had to get my reply in there.

Deal has not expired, just there is better deal £149 at Littlewoods

I think the spammers have expired just because there is no stock in their local Argos. Still 3 in Swindon. Better deal that L'woods/Additions if you want it now!

Can this be unexpired?
