Amazon deal isn't working tried it 10 mins ago error on the WEP pack.

I've ordered the one from gamestation which is also better, as you get two other games plus the ones above. Halo ODST and Gears of War 2.
#10
Amazon one working for me just ordered one, many thanks
#11
The arcade is ok for the people who already got a harddrive. If you want to go live that is. But if you don't want to go live amazon and gamestation better deal all roun
#12
Isn't the Arcade console most prone to the red ring of death?
#13
Ridiculous price. Heat and Rep.
#14
Sorry had to vote cold, amazon deal is clearly better with the same console, option to select the same games or others and you get wireless entertainment pack which includes extra wireless conrtroller plus Pure and Lego Batman.
#15
Cold, Amazon deal completely destroys this one.
#16
I just ordered the Amazon deal

XBox 360 Elite with 120 Gb Hard Disk
Extra Controller plus Pure and Lego Batman game
Borderlands and Left 4 Dead 2 as well 194 quid

now that is a cracking deal, considering the 2 games can easily come to 50 quid.

I'd say that's worthy of it's own post "zappp64"

No hard drive is the major difference - and major disadvantage now that you can copy games to the the hard drive and play them from there. If you end up buying the hard drive separately it will cost more than buying the right package in the fiirst place.

I would much prefer too. I got my 1st one which RROD as soon as I got it home. I took it back and got another one straight away.

If you are suggesting that they resell returned items and you get one that appears to be returned you can just return it yourself under their 30 day money back guarantee. I can't see how you could get stung for this.

COLD from me, amazon elite deal better.
#21
Bit of a daft choice of games with an Arcade as you won't be able to install the 2nd disk from Forza 3..
#22

So it's cold from you because you prefer/want/can afford a different model, yer that makes so much sense :whistling:


Well, although he was talking about the Elite there is a similar Arcade deal. Is it OK with you to vote cold if the Amazon Arcade deal is mentioned?

Fair point. I'm surprised that's legal actually - selling something in a bundle that can't be used.

I just tried this, I got the subtotal as £279.96 :(

They are more or less the same thing as they still play the same identical games, just the Elite has more extras which at the end of the day anyone buying the Arcade will end up getting over the course of the coming months.

Both deals are very good but I can see why people are voting this one cold, if I was going to buy a new 360 then I'd also go for the Amazon deal.

There's nothing illegal about it as you're still in a better position than having bought a console without any games at all. In my opinion it's more annoying when retailers sell non-wireless printers without cables (or ink cartridges), something with an EU plug (and no UK adapter) or the old classic of something thats battery operated without any batteries.
#26
AS i understand it if you bunged in a larger HDD the Arcade would be the same as the elite?

The downside with the AMZN offer was the WEP IMO - two games I didnt want and a controller I could get for under £30...beats the WEP deal of £72. Would rather have £72 worth of games free than a £72 WEP
#27

True.
Anyway the game does not have to have the second disc to run, as it says on the box "Extra content disc requires up to 3gb of space"
Having not played Forza 3 is it really "extra content" and you have the option of whether to install it or is it required to play the game?

Sony sold playstations for almost 10 years (PS and PS2) without even including so much as a 8mb memory card for people to save their games.

One other thing though can you please stop saying that the Arcade and Elite console are not connected as they play the same games and use the same controllers, the Arcade is simply a stripped down "budget" version of the Elite. Some people who read these threads look here for advice and saying that they're not related will only add to their confusion as chipsets and the like will be of no interest to them.

edit: I've now seen your link about Forza 3 working on the Arcade, so the extra disc is indeed optional and it's still playable without. :)

Elite is not an arcade they are not connected,
Arcade deal you are on about, ask the op he will be able to advise you better than I.


Yes, I am fully aware I was on about the Arcade deal...

I was saying that although he was talking about the Elite deal, there is a similar Arcade deal (identical bar the console) which puts this one to shame.

I needn't ask the OP anything. Cheers for your help, though.

I'll second this!
Amazon deal is way better-why would you pay the same for less?

For the same price you can get the WEP for free and still have Forza+Fifa at Amazon?
No Brainer to me and voted cold,
#31
What a buy i already had hard drive, got a £10 voucher back as its back on this weekend only,sold the 2 games for £40 :thumbsup: so i paid £89.99 :gift: Perfect!!!
#32
Gone to £129.99 with a £10 gift card now! Much better deal than the HMV and Game £105/£110 deals now, if ya ask me. Pity I already went and brought one for £150 from Argos a month back with Forza 3 and the WEP, oh well at least I still got the £10 gift card then too.
