But this is a deal for a 360, what does the PS3 have to do with anything? I'm no fanboy, I have neither, but surely an Xbox360 with 2 great games is a better deal than a PS3 with no games? (Does the PS3 even have any games as good as Halo3 and PGR4??)

Indeed, for £20 more you can get a Blue Ray player with a pick of any rubbish game! Your talking about something completely different, if you want a Blue Ray player then yes a PS3 is very much a worthwhile purchase but if you want a games console (which is what this deal is about) then a 360 is the only console for you!

What PS3 have to do with 360? HMMM maybe its the fact that there both gaming consoles, are both competitors, and both a very simular products. I have a good feeling that if i voted this deal hot then you wouldnt have even made that comment.

Ok fair enough, so they are both for gaming, find me a PS3 with 2 top notch games for the same price as this and lets compare deals...

Note about the "Progressive scan DVD playback" - this is only achievable via the VGA component cable and not through the regular and supplied component cable. Still good though.
#11
excellent deal, hot
#12
Nice find OnTheBallCity, there are some really great titles available (and forthcoming) for the Xbox 360 console and with two of them already in this bundle then I'm happy to vote it Hot. :thumbsup:
#13
Good deal but don't forget that they also sell the console on it's own for £195, so you're effectively paying £65 for Halo 3 and PGR 4, so only go for this deal if you really want the games but I would personally buy the unit on it's own then choose my own bundle. :)

It's good to see some quality games being put in bundles though, normally it's games that don't sell very well. :)
[helper]#14
the other point to consider is will the price change once stock arrives.....

That said if this is a console "pre-bundled" package (ie one put together by MS rather than Shopto) then its possible the console will be one of the later ones with HDMI...
#15
Good deal, voted hot.
#16
The pro version has hdmi the premium doesn't.
#17
voted cold, you're best buying the premium seperate for £195 (shopto) and then buying the games seperate (pcworld).

Although wait a few weeks because the XBOX is getting an official price drop of £195, or there abouts. I imagine this would co-incide with the 'Premium' rebranding to the new name of 'Pro', and I'm sure this will also include 2 games too (Think it's gonna be Forza 2 and Marvel Alliance)

Good if you want it now, but if you're looking to get this as an XMAS present (or any other religious holiday), wait until the end of October! It will be cheaper, should be the premium with HDMI (PRO) and probably come with bundled games...
#18
i would say hot, all these people biggin up the ps3 have got to realise that sony are in big trouble with the ps3 , no games, poor sales and to top it off microsoft have now bagged their biggest franchise (gta) with its simultaneous release date
#19
When and which seller will they be selling the premium with the HDMI port??

Shopto do not sell the premium for £199 and i doubt they will lower it to £195 as their last price drop was not long ago

Anywhere you can buy a 360 now, on October the 20th basically. Some places are reporting the 23rd though!

Most places are just starting to run out of stock (of the Premium at least.. if you try taking your xbox back, some places are offering a refund as they have no stock to do a replacement)

Also the 'Core' is going to be called 'Arcade' with
[LIST]
[*]Wireless Controller (as opposed to a wired)
[*]5 Arcade Games
[*]256MB Memory Card
[*]HDMI port
[/LIST]

Expect the Core/Arcade price to drop below the RRP of a Nintendo Wii, in line with the Premium price drop

Premium is rumoured to get a price drop of below £200. Most places state £195 and will be the Premium we have now, with 2 games bundled in and a HDMI port included

I imagine the Elite will also have its price slashed, to go with the Premium drop. I haven't read anything on the Elite though. I expect it to be in a bundle at least, similar to the Premium.

All XBOXs will be 65nm CPUs too with quieter drives :)

I never once said £199, I said £195! Play had the Premium for sale at £199 lately though :-)

Microsoft has had the rebranding on the cards for ages. Pictures were leaked as early as this Spring!

Sony have cut bits out of the PS3 to try and make it more affordable in the run up to Christmas, this happens on the 10th I believe.

In turn, Microsoft is expected to cut the price of the Premium (Pro) too the magic £200 point, and most probably the other 2 packages will recieve similar price cuts (Core/Arcade and Elite)

I very much doubt any of what you are saying will happen in time for Christmas this year.

I hope not anyway ;P

where did you get it from? you might able to take it back in a few months and get a refund, or least a trade for the new model

yep DVD like matt said, but I think it's the BENQ drives now (might be wrong, I have terrible memory) which are quieter than the different drives that have been used in the 360 previously

ybut I think it's the BENQ drives now (might be wrong, I have terrible memory) which are quieter than the different drives that have been used in the 360 previously


So they are all BENQ? do you know for sure they will all be BENQ???

Brought it off here in the buy trade and sell section a month back.

I was gong to buy a premium this week, but all this talk of a "pro" version has made me think again. Where are people getting these dates and pricings from? I've googled it and found nothing.

Well when you are on a production line, they will use all the same components if they can, to reduce production costs.

So bascially, the first wave of these will (in theory) all be BENQ drives until they use all the stock up, then they will start using another drive type if it's cheaper to do so, or they can't get hold of anymore.

A good example is the Hard Drives on the PS3s. Usually when parts are changed you wouldn't know (TVs Camcorders and even Microwaves all follow the same process) but the PS3 hard drive is advertised, so far we have seen 20GB and 60GB, with the US getting 80GB a short time ago and 40GBs on the way. These are all size related, but I'd hazard guess that each of those are probably a different manufacturer.

So to sum up, now that I have talked **** for a few minutes...
Yes, all boxes of the new rebranded Premium, will contain the same parts on day one

Try googling:
XBOX PREMIUM PRO
XBOX CORE ARCADE


http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.engadget.com/media/2007/08/europe360s.jpg

That should get you some pictures of the boxes, that were leaked early this year. As well as info as to what is in the box, and come bundled

Also here is one place you can check out a discussion on...

65nm XBOXs (New CPU Chip) I'd like to stress this CPU isn't anymore powerful than the current ones, it's just cheaper for Microsoft to produce and in theory it's cooler and in turn quieter (as you don't need fans running as fast to cool it down)

Cheaper XBOX (£195)

Small bit on the PS3 price drop which would make the XBOX price drop happen

I'd imagine most forums have been discussing this over the weekend, and expect news sites to pick up on it and start reporting on Monday and Tuesday

ThePennypincher:

Many thanks for the info. Not sure how I managed to miss this. . . .

In light of this new info, it seems senseless to take the plunge now. I've been on the look out for these "falcon" machines, these seem to have appeared in machines built post August 2007.

Ive just bought a 360 from woolworths its the v2(premium) with hdmi.You get Fifa 08,Harry Potter order of the Phoenix and Forza 2 for 251.99.Ive sold the games on an auction site netting me 70 quid

Nonsense, please, leave it unless you really know what you're talking about. Component gives progressive scan DVD playback, don't tell others any different because it's true. The VGA lead also does it, but then it was never an issue until you brought it up.

PC World never know of the offer when I go there, and this saves a lot of hassle.

The 360 has only just had an official price drop (August), so why would they drop it again? That's one official price drop in almost two years. Having another so soon would smack of Sony desperation with their two price drops within seven months of launch.

Microsoft never 'bagged' the game, GTA III, GTA Vice City and GTA San Andreas were all released on the original Xbox, they had nothing to bag, it was always going to be released on both formats.

Indeed and by using Rockstar as an example he is making himself look even more daft due to the exclusive deal they recently signed with sony...


A totally new game franchise will be coming from Rockstar Games--creator of the Manhunt and Grand Theft Auto series--and it will be exclusive to Sony's PlayStation 3.
SCEA's director of third-party relations, Michael Shorrock, wrote on the official US PlayStation [COLOR=#ffcc33]blog[/COLOR], "As part of our long standing relationship with Rockstar, and the incredible success for both companies with the cultural icon that is Grand Theft Auto we've agreed to the PlayStation exclusive rights of the next great franchise from the Rockstar studios."
Nothing whatsoever was revealed about the new franchise except the clarification that it would not be LA Noire.
According to Shorrock, "Rockstar really wanted to make a game that you can truly only do on PS3."
