looks a good deal
#2
You could get about £46 quid cash for the games from CEX, maybe get gamestation to beat them so £49, if you just wanted the console.
#3
Its actually £204s
#4
hot

Hmm not a good deal if I'm honest. Crackdown 2 and Alan Wake are worth around a tenner if you sell them so you get a 250gb console with one new release at a pretty standard price. It's good if you plan to keep the games until compltetion, but even then there's no real money saved.

I agree with noodle.

Its good as a bundle, but many will be hoping to buy the bundle and then sell the games to get a cheap console.

Im still waiting for the xmas £200 deal with 3 newly released games :)

Hot deal for the bundle though.
#8
Someone said above that CeX would give you £46 cash for the games. £204-£46 = £158 for the 250GB console and a HDMI cable. Where can you get a 250GB console for less than that? There's no point saying "it's the standard price", when the standard price for the console on its own is £199.99, especially when you don't post a better deal.
#9
You could easy get £50 fot the games so its an s 250gb for £150. Thats a good deal, I wouldnt expect crazy deals on 360 this christmas its sold really well this year its outsold wii and ps3 worldwide since the slim launched. With Natal black ops and a host of other top titles before chrostmas Fable 3 Crysis 2 etc I wouldnt be suprised if there are stock issues with the 360 come end November given the success of Natal pre sales...

Cracking deal this. I would have definitely got it if i didn't already have two working 360's.

360 outsold the PS3 in US, not worldwide. Here is a link to the source. It was just posted yesterday by a reputable games website in eurgamer.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2010-10-29-ps3-global-total-snaps-at-360s-heels

To quote what they say -

Global sales of PlayStation 3 aren't far off those of Xbox 360. And Sony is gaining on Microsoft.

The latest numbers (based on sales up to 30th September 2010) show the rival consoles only five million units apart: 39.2 million PlayStation 3s to 44.6 million Xbox 360s.

But globally PlayStation is selling faster: Sony recorded 3.5 million PS3 sales from the start of July to the end of September whereas Microsoft reported 2.8 million Xbox 360 sales.

PS3 launched a year after the Xbox 360 in the US, and even later in Europe. And while Microsoft may enjoy a current lead in the US hardware charts, on the other side of the world the PS3 reigns supreme - the Japanese barely register the Xbox 360.


Anyway, I'm not trying to start a flame war, merely presenting facts. Both PS3 and 360 are excellent consoles. I still think there are better deals available than the one the OP posted, namely the sainsburies deal with a 4gb console with Fifa 11 and Medal of Honor. Of course, it means a little more customisation on the user's part to get a console with a bigger hard drive, but it's well worth it. The savings are massive. This deal is still average in terms of value. 2 good, but average games in terms of sell on value and one current release game of a decent value. Many stores such as GAME, HMV, Gamestation do stuff like this. Even places like zavvi, thehut and play.com.

Well if you want to talk numbers...

Just to point out sony inc overall made less overall profit last quarter than ms entertainment division (xbox and zune).....which is nothing in ms overall sales and profits. I read Sonys profits were $1.6 for every $100 they earn.

That paints a picture no ? PS3 has been a complete and utter failure. PS2 sold over 120million units vs 20 million odd for xbox and Gamecube. Thus far 70 million + wii 45 million + 360 less than 40 million ps3 dont play up bad numbers and say its anything but a complete failure.

All the ps3 has mult play is poor pc / 360 ports. The online offering is rubbish. Which is why everyone buys the top games on the 360 vs ps3.

nice find
#14
Who cares about any of this sales figures stuff?

The Sainsbury's deal would get you a 4GB console for £89.99 after selling the games to CeX. If you buy an official 250GB hard drive and headset, that makes it a worse deal than this one. If you buy a WD2500BEVT and headset, you're looking at a saving of about £15-£20 on this deal, but the hard drive won't be in a caddy and you'd have to flash it yourself. You can buy a cheapo caddy for about £13, but then you're already reaching the point where you're going to all the trouble of flashing a drive and ordering a caddy just to save yourself a couple of quid.

Also, the Sainsbury's deal is in store only and in selected stores only.

Basically, it's ridiculous to say a deal is poor when it's available to everyone and with free home delivery, when you're comparing it to a deal that's available in selected stores only and requires you to order extra components from elsewhere and do some modding before it matches this deal, and if the hard drive dies you have no comeback at all because you've flashed it. Either way, the savings are certainly not massive if you want a comparable product.

Ok, I'm not argueing with you, your quite clearly a 360 fanboy if you think a console which retailed at double the price of a 360 at launch, launched a year later and is still hot on its heels as a failure. Not to mention that unlike me, you did not post a source to your theory. But please don't because I don't really care. I have both consoles, both are awesome in what they offer. Online is better on 360, but not £40 a year better. In fact, the servers people play are the same on both platforms. With the 360, all I find I'm paying for is cross game chat and one button invites - something I don't believe is worth £40 a year. But I pay it because I like to enjoy the online side of both console's exclusive MP offerings.

Also, now that Fable 3 is out, what does the 360 have coming for it in the next year exclusive wise? In the time before Gears of War 3, 360's big exclusive, PS3 gets these - Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 3, Little Big Planet, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Infamous 2, The Last Gaurdian, Shadow of the Colussus+Ico HD collection, SOCOM 4, Yakuza 4, Final Fantasy 14...plus every awesome multiplatform game that will comes out on the 360. If you think that line-up of EXCLUSIVE gaming is a failure then I think you need to get your head checked. The Xbox 360 is dry over the next year due to MS insistence on pushing the dead on arrival Kinect.

Also, yes, most games do indeed look better on the 360, but in all honesty, these are only really for graphics whores who think they can really tell the difference between minor pixels. The only game I can remember that was notoriously bad on the PS3 was Bayonetta. The rest were inferior over petty litte things that really would not be noticed. Also, recent games such as Vanquish, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow, and Formula 1 2010 actually run better on the PS3. Here is a source to each of the respective articles where you can find a detailed description. But again you will realise that the differences are so minor they are not even worth mentioning. I am providing these sources simply because you felt inclined to say that 360 games look better.

Formula 1 2010 - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-f1-2010-face-off
Castlevania - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-castlevania-lords-of-shadow-face-off
Vanquish - http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-vanquish-face-off

So there you have it. Both HD consoles offer exceptional value. The 360 is thin on exclusive games over the next 12 months but it has very strong and diverse back catalogue of games such as Halo, Gears of War, Fable, Crackdown, Alan Wake, Left 4 Dead and others I can't think of right now. At the same time the PS3 has some excellent games and has a much stronger portfolio of games over the coming year. Both offer great value.

My message to you would be this - Please don't spout rubbish just because you don't own a certain console or grew up playing another and have decided to pledge your loyalty to that platform. What makes consoles great are the games and both HD consoles, even the Wii have some steller games in their catalogue. Only a fool would argue against that.

My message to you would be this
And my message to you would be this - Save the blubbering fanboy **** for Eurogamer.

I do have to LOL at you saying the only game you can remember being bad on the PS3 was Bayonetta, when the 360 has won 129 face-offs and the PS3 just 19, and the PS3 versions of games have received comments from Richard Leadbetter such as "bitterly disappointing" (Assassin's Creed), "an insult to the PS3 userbase" (Bioshock), "this is one to avoid for PS3 owners" (Operation Flashpoint), "a genuinely disappointing game with a quantifiably poor PS3 conversion" (Quantum of Solace), "sub-HD resolution doesn't have to look this bad" (LOTR: Conquest), "fundamentally broken on PS3 and I simply cannot recommend it" (Skate), "a deeply disappointing experience on the PS3" (Splinter Cell: Double Agent) and there are numerous other examples.

Just **** off back to Eurogamer, cos you're clogging up my deal with utter ****.

I didn't deny even once that most 360 games look better than their PS3 counterparts. All the games you mentioned are between 2-3 years old. The games I mentioned are recent examples of platform parity where differences are virtually non-existent between both platforms. I don't understand your rage if I'm perfectly honest. But please do give me a well informed response to everything else I mentioned in my post. I doubt you'll have much to say without blowing your top and fuming. For me, this deal is average at best but I have not voted. Others like yourself can disagree with me, but so far I've yet to find someone who can counter what I've said with actual facts.

Let's look at what you said: -

I've proven that completely and utterly wrong with the examples I gave. You seem to like linking to Eurogamer, but you should perhaps read some of the content on the site, then you might be a bit better informed.

As for the PS3 being a success, you seem quite desperate to prove that it is, although being last in sales and digging a hole of nearly 5 billion dollars for Sony is about as far away from a success as you can get. You posted up the figures from Eurogamer, but you didn't post up the profit for Sony's Networked Products and Services division. They made less than 7 million dollars profit for the quarter, despite selling 3.5 million PS3s, 1.5 million PS2s, 1.5 million PSPs, accessories, games, Sony Vaio computers, Sony Walkman MP3 players, plus other mobile devices that are counted in that division. Something is clearly eating up the profits there still in a BIG way, but obviously it can't be the PS3 as that's a huge success according to you, right? I guess they're selling PS2s, PSPs, Vaio computers and MP3 players at a loss, cos something has chomped away all the profits.

In terms of cross-platform games, the 360 is far superior, although it's only taken a whole 4 years for the PS3 versions to only be mildly inferior, with the odd exception like Bayonetta, Red Dead Redemption where, to quote Eurogamer, the 360 version has a higher resolution (the game is actually in HD), improved levels of detail, noticeably superior performance in-game, fewer jaggies, better shadows, but of course, only "graphics whores who think they can tell the difference between minor pixels" would notice the difference, even though just looking at screenshots, the difference is plain as day.

Oh, and there's also Dead Rising 2: -

Clearly and measurably we have a conversion with a big resolution hit and mildly toned down visuals that still can't match the Xbox 360 game in terms of basic performance. It's not often that we see a PS3 version so technically behind these days, but Dead Rising 2 is something of an unfortunate exception.
But of course, that one must have slipped your mind as well, right?

You are the stereotypical PS3 fanboy who uses the excuse of owning both consoles to try and make out that you couldn't possibly be biased. You did the ever so predictable thing of listing a handful of PS3 exclusives (including 4 games that should have been out this year, but have been delayed) while making the claim that the 360 has no games coming out. You'd think the PS3 fanboys would have learned their lesson by now, because they say the same **** every year, yet the 360 always gets good exclusive games.

You're clearly a bit of an idiot too, as you said you haven't met anyone who can counter what you've said with actual facts. I posted a response to your comment about the Sainsbury's deal based entirely on facts and I debunked your comments about cross-platform games by using comments from the very site that you spend all day frequenting.

As soon as one person makes a comment about the 360 outselling the PS3, we get a giant wall of text from you in response. You claim the PS3 isn't a failure - it's last in sales and has lost Sony billions. You waffle on saying Live isn't worth £40, even though you know damn well you can get it for less than that - funny how my deal is **** because you think you can find this 360 for less, even though you have to flash your own drive and stick it in the 360 without a caddy, yet you use the RRP of Live when trying to say it's not worth the money - another classic and predictable sign of a PS3 fanboy idiot. You then do the "360 has no games" thing - classic PS3 fanboy - before ending by waffling on about how only graphics whores can tell the difference between "minor pixels", except with Bayonetta. Wrong again.

Seriously, just stop while you're behind. The next time I see you posting walls of irrelevant blabber in defence of Sony in a thread about Xbox 360s, I'll just report you to the mods, cos it's annoying that many 360 threads are ruined by utter TOOLS like you.

Good deal, not scorching, but good. Have some heat OP!

On the Fanboys populating this thread - both consoles have been competing for 4 years or more and yet people are still being baited into stupid arguments. Instead of reacting to an incorrect comment ("worldwide sales", who cares for gods sake, are you the CEO's of MS and Sony!?), why not simply ignore it and get on with your lives. Or, in the case of HUKD, do something useful and find some cheap stuff for us all to buy!

Does the price go down when you go to the checkout, because in the basket it says £254.75?

yes, it deducts the saving when you check out
#25
Just took it to checkout as I'm looking at ordering it and it has gone down to £199.00, but it does say it will take 1 - 3 months for the Xbox, Crackdown 2, Alan Wake and Fallout to be shipped...is this likely to be correct?

wouldn't have thought so. is it really likely that amazon (biggest online retailer?!) is going to be without xbox360s over the xmas shopping period?

they won't take the money until despatch, so place an order and if you find a better deal before it's despatched then cancel and order elsewhere.
#27
I suppose you're right, but I've decided against it. Just going to wait until around Christmas and keep my eyes peeled for any deals coming up to then.
