Something screwwy going on with the cross-promotions for the Xbox 360s at Argos. Looks like they have just lowered the price on the full version and if you click on the special offers tab and then add the itmes mentioned in the title there's only an extra charge of £4.98 for the software.

Ideal trade in material to bring the cost of the full console down to less than £150.

Great deal if argos were a little slower today, but these will not be honoured in store, there is already a bullitin on the till and kiost systems advising customers that there is only one free copy of each game

The deal is buy any Xbox 360 with Viva Pinata and Forza and get Viva Pinata and Forza free. It says so in the offers. The only thing weird is that if you have 4 forza games they are all still free!
#6
Yep, still working here....got Full Console, 4 x Forza2 and 2 x Viva Pinata reserved for collection by the close of play tomorrow from my local store......what's the chances of them actually putting 6 games into a bag for me???
banned#7
yea i was thinking the same, ordered and need to collect, dont wana go there pay up adn recieve only 2 games and the console
banned#8
if any 1 has reserved for collection,, try using the quick pay kiosk.
i have used it, but not for the games yet, just put in your reservation number ,check the price is right and then put your card details in, and then you dont need to speak to anyone cutting out all the questions.
#9
Anyone reckon these will be "gettable"? I've ordered..

Hi all. What are all the versions of the xbox 360. I have just got a wii & to be honest I found the graphics a bit dated so I sold it, I then bought a ps2 slim version & still find them dated. Is it me ? Iis the xbox graphics better than these.Thanks in advance
#11
Bare in mind, even if you reserve this for instore, if they fix the problem by the time you get there you'll pay full price.

I'm trying it anyway, worth a go.
#12
What deal do you reckon is best, assuming someone is going to buy a console and GTA IV anyway:

1. Buy the above (6 games for free) and then GTA seperately
2. Buy the system with the £30 for GTA and Halo 3 deal
3. Buy the system with the £50 for GTA, Halo 3 and an extra controller deal

The Playstation 2 is 8 year old hardware! The Wii is a souped up gamecube, its not known for next generation graphics. If you want cutting edge graphics it would have to be a 360 or PS3.

dose it has HDMI port?

Yer the GFX on the 360 are loads better as its a generation ahead of the ps2 and the wii aint going for gfx quality and competing in the same market as the 360.

yer doesnt have have Blueray tho. but interestingly GTA4 runs a higer resolution on 360 than PS3 they're pretty equal on graphics although the ps3 is slightly more powerful. its all about what u wanna do with it and console exclusives.

Can only trade in one of each item... so u can't go in with 6 copies of Viva Pinata and Forza 2 and trade them.

I'm reluctant to ever buy the Wii because it's a Gamecube in a different chassis with a motion sensing controller accessory which has lead to a wave of tragic games which barely resemble retail quality. There's more innovation in a quick Google search for freeware.

I truly admire Nintendo's marketing strategies from a financial point of view, but the company has clearly deviated from the classic titles they used to produce.

I'm absolutely certain that my fond memories of achieving near perfect lap times on Super Mario Kart will resonate longer than those of my 18 year younger sibling shaking a stick at Mario and Sonic Olympics.

Wii 2.0 - More waggle? This flash in the pan attitude is going to hurt eventually. Their incredible franchises are going to fall behind the pack.

Xbox 360 graphics are the best you can get. See examples such as Mass Effect, Gears of War and multi-platform Call of Duty 4. Ten times better than the PS2, and much more immersive with Xbox Live and Achievements and a whole online Marketplace (don't let the jargon fool you, it's all very simple and easy to get going with). Welcome to the Xbox community, in advance ;)

PS3 is better in terms of processor, however the 360 can offer more graphically (although you'll never see this in cross platform games but usually in exclusives).

It's not a Gamecube in a different chassis, it does essentially extend the Gamecube architecture in terms of implementation but it is a more powerful machine although nothing close to the PS3/Xbox 360.

I think I will probably decide on the xbox as it is a lot cheaper than ps3 & its size & looks are better but what is the difference from the basic arcade console to the elite?
#29
Arcade = No Hard drive. Has 256mb memory card + HDMI out

Pro = 20Gb Hard Drive + HDMI out

Elite = Black. 120Gb Hard Drive + HDMI out + HDMI cable included in box

Actually, the Xbox's graphical superiority is more visible in cross-platform games. If you compare the same games side-by-side the 360 almost always looks slightly better than the PS3. The main reason for this is that it is easier for game developers to write game architecture for tthe 360's 3 general CPUs than the PS3's 9 specialist ones, so almost all cross-platform games are created for Xbox, then altered (obviously losing slight quality) for the PS3.

The difference is negligable really though. The reason I prefer xbox is because all the most impressive titles on PS3 are available on the Xbox, but the best titles on Xbox are all exclusive. It's also way cheaper. There will be a Blu-ray adapter for it too eventually, but next gen consoles are noisy ******s due to all the fans. A bit impractical for watching movies in my bedroom. Better getting a standalone player methinks.
#33
Out of stock of Forza at my store :(
#34
Heated... and... repped... but... must... resist...
#35
Does anyone know the trade-in value of the games?
#36
about 6/7 pounds for either
#37
Anyone know if the xbox in the deal is the new HDMI Falcon version with the 175w power supply?
#38
Im in the middle of deciding whether to buy a 360 or ps3 myself, im just unsure.

The 360 will lack a blu ray drive (expensive) wifi out the box (yet again expensive) online playing fees (dont mind paying for that) and its slightly inferior in terms of power but it has alot more games and is a damn site cheaper so i just dont know, i guess i could just get a 360 without the blu ray but i would need wifi which isnt the cheapest accessory. Rhino did you say you like the size of the 360? its a noisy tank lol

Why does everyone have to start a PS3 Vs. Xbox thing. Blummin hell

Has anyone actually collected their order from a store yet???
