First post, don't be too harsh!

The Xbox price drops are here early! For £10 more than the new price of a 360, you get 2 games(probably not very good ones!) and a free wireless controller. Oh and 2% quidco, which is around £4.20.

They also have the arcade for £159, not sure which is better.

Seems like a deal to me!

Anyone know if this deal is in store too?

It's a hot find.

Xbox 360 is having a price drop this upcoming friday, gamestation are selling it at it's new price already. from Friday, Arcade is £159, Premium £199 and Elite is £259.
#2
HOT deal as this is the Pro version not the arcade version!

If your in the market for a console but dont need one asap then wait a few months as Sony may intro a price cut on the PS3

Not so sure this is hot so much as luke warm. The Pro RRP is £199 now isn't it? So you're paying £10 over the odds (admittedly for a wireless entertainment pack but aren't these usually included as a sweetener at no extra cost?)

The price cut doesn't technically come in until Friday.

I haven't looked around much, but I know that Amazon charge £25 for the Wireless entertainment pack when bought with a 360.

Is this online only or is this instore aswell?
#6
Good find -- an extra controller by itself is usually £20ish, so to get that, Forza (excellent game) and another game for just £10 on top of the RRP is pretty sweet. Voted hot.
#7
this is premium not the pro then? no hdmi?
#8
This is the Pro version as the premium would have sold out ages ago.
#9
it will be the pro, as premiums are discontinued, its just people still call it premium.

why do they never say with hdmi in the description or have they just not updated it
#11
I didn't realize the Pro was different to the Premium. Updated :)
#13
bargain :)
#14
Microsoft never actually renamed the Premium, it's just some retailers seem to want to rebrand it now it has HDMI. On the official website, the old Premium model has no tag name now, it's just the XBOX 360 with the other two units being Arcade and Elite...just to be pedantic.

;)
#15
So what is the diff with this and the Elite then?

the elite is a different colour and has a 120GB HDD :thumbsup:
#17
voted HOT & a good spot for bringing to our attention first.

If i hadn't of bought a Halo3 special edition from Amazon for £209 at Xmas (which didnt include the games or extra controller) then I would certainly have bought one now and at this price with one of the best games (Forza 2) and an extra w/less controller the Xbox pricing looks fantastic.

Just in time to see Billy Gates blow his load on a Blu-Ray update........................

Face it, it's gonna happen unless he goes a different direction and releases games on Solid State format.

Still Warm tho.

What is the difference (technically) between a PRO and the Halo edition consoles ? (besides the colour of the console). Do they both have HDMI and 20 Gb hard-drive ?

I doubt Sony will introduce a price cut anytime soon, they've done a price cut pretty recently.


This will undoubtedly sway more people to buy 360's when GTA4 comes out, good move by Microsoft.

Core/Arcade version is cheaper than a Wii too, crazy when you compare the technology!

Yep, they do. As far as I am aware the Halo edition has limited edition content preloaded on the hard drive. Otherwise they are just the same.

If they do bring out a blu-ray version (which blatantly they will). They will still offer an external option, they would HAVE too for all the millions of people with standard DVD 360's. I think this is a great deal, I will be buying one as soon as Amazon lower the price so that I can get a quick PC World price match! Undecided over the pro vs elite though...I think the extra 100gb could be useful.

thanks....got another daft question......do you get the Halo3 game with the special edition console ?
#29
I think there will be some more good deals soon since all the retailers will be trying to do bundles to get people to purchase from them (especially over Easter).


Also don't forget PC World will price match and beat the difference by 10%.

Nope, unfortunatly not. In my opinion you should, makes alot of sense to bundle it together.
#31
I enjoyed playing forza 2 and the 2nd wireless controller costs £30 new. Voted hot.
#32
hot deal. the price has dropped already then? i thought it was next week

hmm...sod that then

need to choose between the PRO for £209.99 and Elite (similar bundle) for £269.99

my mind is saying c'mon for a piddly £60 squid more you can have an elite with forza 2, extra controller...etc

tempting (but the missus would not be impressed as have wii and ps3 already) :?
#34
Unless you are gonna be downloading a load of original Xbox games/HD quality movie downloads off Xbox Live at several gigs a game/movie, then it's not really worth spending the extra for the Elite imo, unless you really love the colour black and need an HDMI lead as well.
#35
would an elite have better gubbins inside than a pro console or would they be virtually the same ?
#36
tempting as it's the best deal for a Pro i've seen to date but i'm going to hang out until Friday and see what deals are about then.... hopefully with Gears of war and halo 3 included will be nice!

As far as I am aware, the only advantages of the Elite when it came out was the 120GB HDD and HDMI. Now all X360s have HDMI so the only difference would be the hard drive... plus, the cool black colour. :)

Lol you could do!

Apparently there is a rumor saying that a 60GB hard drive will be replacing the 20GB hard drive in the future. But nobody knows when until it's officially announced! Darn those rumors eh! :p
