Stolen from GRCC on the neo forums, the guy is a legend.

Instructions are all in there, you just need to make sure the site is set to the right country (top right). Free 512MB memory cards aren't to be sniffed at and 20GB HDDs for £12.99 certainly aren't to be sniffed at. The HDDs are refurbished rather than brand new but considering a similer pre-owned model will set you back around £50+ it's a damn good price all told.

Microsoft are giving them away so everyone has enough room to download the NXE in November. I'm not complaining!

EDIT: http://www.xbox.com/en-US/support/hardware/memoryupdate/default.htm

Or that one if you're still suspicious.

Just to clarify who this offer is for:

- Xbox 360 Core Owners (The original non-hard drive model). If you only have a 64/256Mb Memory Card for the console. If you have since purchased a Hard Drive the site may flag this and not offer you a HDD/Memory Card. If you are eligible you will be offered either a 512Mb card for free, or a 20Gb HDD for £12.99
- Xbox 360 Arcade Owners (The current non-hard drive model). If you only have the 256Mb Memory Card and have not purchased a HDD yourself then you should be eligible for the £19.99 20Gb HDD/3 Months Xbox Live pack. The 3 Months of Xbox Live Gold has an RRP of £15, effective value of about £6-10.

If you have a HDD model of 360 (20Gb/Pro/Elite), then you're not eligible (as you don't need extra storage space).

Microsoft checks their device database not only for the ID of your console (to work out which model you have), but they can also check if you have a HDD or 512Mb Memory Card (based on what devices they were originally registered to). If all else fails and you're certain you're owed something, give MS a call, it can't do any harm (although give it a couple of days as I bet Xbox Support is getting swamped at the moment)

[COLOR=#eb8e00]Upgrade to a Refurbished 20GB Xbox 360 Hard Drive and 3M of Xbox LIVE Gold for ONLY £19.99! [/COLOR]is what it comes up with entering the details for my old core 360 - not bad but same price as comet new.. which model/ year qualifies for free/ 12.99?

Sweet! I knew it was the right decision to get that Arcade model at Sainsbury's last week. £12.99 - bargain!

Just a shame it's for a present for xmas for someone. It means I've now got to get it out the box to turn it on to get the 'console ID'
#9
Thank you for participating in the Xbox 360 Memory Upgrade Program. We value your membership to Xbox LIVE and can’t wait to see you online!

Same deal I'm being offered, You must have a credit card it seems too. Its not bad, Comet is a rare deal and at least you get 3 months of xbox live to try? Or could you pass it on to someone for a fee?
#14
I have an Elite and get this response:

According to our records you own a console which has enough memory to connect to Xbox LIVE and live the new Xbox Experience. The next time you turn on your Xbox 360 console and connect to Xbox LIVE you will receive the update. Have fun!

do we still have to wait till Nov 19 then? - this implies we can get the new dash before then....
#21
yeah cant see anything about free memory card either
#22
So as I have the bog standard 20gb model, it's not quite as simple as requesting a free memory card?
I want to trade ghosts with my friend who has no internet/Live access.
#23

Gotta wait - think this just rolls it out to consoles now rather than everybody downloading on the 19th Nov - would be a big load for even MS to deal with.

Then on the 19th Nov MS can just activate the deployed versions.
#26
Here wtf should someone who paid much less than me for my 360 especially as 2 of my 360's are neraly 3 years old be entitled to a free 512 meg card. I want one for free. MS say all my 360 are not eligible cos they have hard drive already, excuse me what if one of them has a broken hard drive outside of 1 year warranty f bstdrs


They also say the next time I connect my 360 it will get update to new experience that is f lies as well.

It MUST be a Western Digital BEVS HDD else it will not work. There are plenty of guides on the net, you need to open it, connect it to a PC, use HDD hacker to upload the image onto PC, then download it onto the new HDD and bingo.

Guide HERE

Be warned if you have an hdd attached to your core or arcade when you enter the system info it will log it forever that you have a hard drive

oh yeh and btw this is all you get

* Xbox 360 Arcade owners: Refurbished 20GB HDD + 3 months of Xbox Live for $30.
* Xbox 360 Core owners: 512MB memory card for free OR refurbished 20GB HDD for $20
#31

Where are you getting £12.99? I am getting £19.99.
#33
Is this even live in the UK yet? Seeing as the prices are listed in dollars it looks like it is US only at the moment.
#34
The new dashboard update is on the 19th november if i remember correctly. Its a ways off. Secondly you can only get the free memory card/£12 hard drive if your console is an arcade or poss core system, wont work if you enter a serial #/console id for a pro/premium/elite.
#35
Can't believe some people are moaning about this:roll:

Look at the top right it says the countries select UK
#37
The US offer is £20 - not sure you can take it from the UK though.

Did the core pack not come with any memory card? would expain why they get the freebie and not arcade owners.
banned#38
You need to change country in top right to UK
£19.99 for Arcade owners for 20Gb drive and 3 months to 'Live'
Seems like a good deal but I was excited at the prospect of getting the HD for £12.99, not that bothered now at £19.99. Just me I suppose, bit of a tight git.

I had a core way back it came with a wired controller and the console - that was it

The £12.99 hdd applies to core users only, arcade users get the £19.99 one with 3 months live..
