Sometimes newcomers arent actually newcomers, sometimes they work for the said company ie play or whoever. Im not saying youre a spammer kylewebb, Im sure youre very nice, but I have to say posting a deal that isnt any cheaper than anywhere else is the kind of thing big companies employ people to do just to sell stuff at ordinary prices.

someone pass me the sick bucket...

rfm all you do is reasure people that post naff deals, for gods sake if its a **** deal vote it cold - step up to the plate and be a man... vote cold!


:giggle:

I hear you mate but i think us regulars have an obligation to try and look after the newcomers, otherwise it will make them think F*** it, what's the point of wasting my time trying to find deals for people, just so they end up b****ing at me.

If you look at the bigger picture anyway, the more people we have looking out for good deals, the more chance we have of finding great bargains on a daily basis and we will miss out on this if we embarrass people on there first attempt.

If my name wasn't RealFRIENDLYman, then maybe I would of voted cold on this occasion. :whistling:

Just to let you know Microsoft have a disc replacement program started for discs scratched in the box.

do you have any idea how long it would take to get a new disc ? (Now I wouldnt want to wait to long) & would you need to still fill in your creditcard details on the form even though you're not gonna end up paying nothing ???
got mine both discs loose, extra disc no scrathes, game disc quite a few little scrathes on it. Hopefully it will work fine. Its the damm case that microsoft made...the dumb S.O.Bs lol this is Halo 3 CE at least package it securely

there was a thread here yesterday for soft uk £31 inc code i ordered from there


Yep, that does workout cheaper (i listed it) but it's only for brand new customers, so if you've already got an account with them, then this is a better deal and you'll probably get it slightly quicker.
My games normally arrive 1-2 days before the release date but i've had games arrive earlier than that as well, as Shopto are quite renowned for getting games earlier. :)

Don't forget the code 10% off code: STUDENT10%


where during checkout do you put the code?

EDITED: felt too guilty to make up an nus number it was only a pound anyway. i can live with that for such a good deal ;) ordered it!
I agree, it is good that they are releasing the first 3 episodes on 360 and I would probably buy The Complete Saga had I not got them on the PS2.

But for anyone who isnt a really big fan of the Lego Star Wars series or has never played any of the games before, this is highly recommended. I mean buying into the Lego SW universe for under a tenner is an absolute quality deal!:-D

Cant wait for the Batman and Indy games either! :thumbsup:
Episodes 1-3 havet been released on the 360 though so if you didnt have a PS2 etc then you probably wont have played them.

Personally I would wait. Alhough saying that I do already have this version for 9.99 and it is a good game on its own. I would just be a bit annoyed knowing that a new version is set to be released.

If you dont know either, they will be releasing Lego Batman and Lego Indiana Jones next year!! :)
Thanks for the info guys :thumbsup:

Hmmm, dont think Ill bother with The Complete Saga if I have to pay £30-40 for 2 games already released, even if there is extra content and updated graphics.
Just so you all know, Gamestation are offering a £14 trade-in value for this. Game are offering £13. If your local GS don't mind you trading in multiple copies of the same game then you could get a fair few quid knocked off something else.:thumbsup:

Also, according to IGN.com, The Complete Saga will be both games on one disc, with new characters, levels, and the ability to do any level with a mix of characters from either trilogy!

Cannot wait to face the Emporer as Darth Maul AND Darth Vader! :w00t:

Just thought I'd bump this for those about to do their shopping...especially in the Croydon area! The Currys I found these deals in is in the Whitgift Centre! Happy hunting.
Looks like a managerial deal. Just checked the receipt, and they have all had 50% knocked off (it says "Managerial Discretion"). If this is just a one off in Croydon (I hope its not limited ot there), then there were a few of each in the basket.
Were these the prices they scanned in at, or was this some managerial deal? (you should be able to tell from your reciept)

good price!

my 360 died this morning (3rd one to go to console heaven), called MS, in 10 minutes they'd logged the problem (3 red lights, again!), apologised profusely, e-mailed me the UPS label, arranged to send me a cheque for £85 (the cost of the last out-of-warranty repair I had), arranged to do this repair for free, more apologies, and they're sending me 'something to make up for all the problems you've been experiencing', whatever that means :thumbsup:

I've just ordered COD 4 by using the get up and play no purchase necessary option http://www.getupandplay.co.uk/ to get £5 off . Just follow the instructions and off you go.

I don't see many places doing PES for under £30 quid . It may come down in price soon after release like forza and dirt did, the only reason PES reduced in price so quickly last year was because of negative response the 360 version received by fans and media.
Can someone please do me a favour and click on "Spam" the thread.
"this is the undesputed champion of football games"

Says who!? FIFA all the way for me!!!!!!!!!


Sensible soccer still for me! When if the live version coming out!!!!

Maybe but Pro Evo is one of the must buy games on all consoles, so stores don't have to lower the price because it will sell well regardless of the price.


Games like Halo 3 will sell regardless of the price but you can still get good deals
Pretty much sure that's going to be around the best price for the PS2 version. Cheers!

Just thought I'd let everyone know that is back INSTOCK as well on the PS3 for an earlier release than other stores. :)
Not saying that its not a good site, just warning people that their credit card information is insecure (from what I saw on the preorder page) so beware!, no other site I know of uses an insecure page to take orders!
ps3 version is 29.89 at sendit
Shopto is a good site
ReVeD
Anyone pre-ordered this from this site?
The pre-order page that you enter your card details on isn't secure!!!
sound's a bit dodgy to me!


Woah!!!

Never noticed that before...:-(

I ordered this and selected store pick up, but did'nt select a store, rang them to see what will happen and she said its been sent to my home address and i did'nt pay for delivery! :)


same here...was delivered today :w00t:
Is there anyway of cancelling an order ?
Just picked up my copy from local WilkinsonPlus store. Didn't even take it out of the shrinkwrap, took it to Blockbuster & traded it & £9.99 for Bioshock which cost me the equivalent of £26.99 instead of the usual sky high price of £39.99.

Now that is hot!

Do you enjoy motostorm?

Forza 2 is supposed to have the best physics, online and customisation.


i have not even unwrapped it , it has just sat there. the ps3 is basically just a blu ray player for me at the moment and im desperate for a couple great ps3 games.

resistance to man was massively disapointing, virtua fighter 5 underwhelming, enchanted arms crud, ninja gaiden good game and motorstorm unplayed.

i have finished bioshock on the xbox360 and just started blue dragon although shamefully i also still have the darkness wrapped and untouched for the xbox360.

forza should be good though, the wife wont play it but when my friends come around, the wife and her friends can talk about cooking books or something while we play.:thumbsup:

wiht quake 4 can u do 4 player split screen? whats that like? i probably wont actually play the game for the storyline but just for a blast around with my nephews

There are probably better games for a little bit more. It is a bit dated and not so many people play it online.

It is riddled with bugs. my copy crashed most of the time when I had the network cable plugged in.
lolz u bought a ps3....

worth a tenner but dont expect 2 much....


I'll 2nd that.

It does get a bit repetitive, ('n stating the obvious), quite a distance from competing with the latest titles.

In that case avoid like the plague!!! Not that I'm bitter about it of course :whistling:


I know I'm quoting myself but I think its only fair to slightly adjust my statement so bare with me (sorry for digging up an old thread by the way).

So anyway the games from The Game Collection got sold and went so I thought I will replace them as I quite liked them, they are on play.com for £14.99 and I couldn't be bothered to look around so I ordered. The games arrived and they are exactly the same as the ones I had before. Therefore I think the problem may not lie with the retailers but with the people who are supplying them! Just to make sure it wasn't just me being fussy I went into a comet and picked up Tomb Raider and it was sealed (which wasn't stuck to the case) with a Microsoft seal on and the game was brand spanking new.

Anyway to get back to the point I was making before, provided The Game Collection gets their supplier to supply new games (and perhaps replies to emails quicker) I would use them again as I said before delivery and price was good but product and support are seriously lacking.

Right that's me done! :thumbsup:
Ordered both the Arcade Compilation and Just cause:thumbsup: .


I have ordered from them before and have received the items promptly , they even sent a replacement for a copy of Quake 4 I ordered that didn't arrive , but eventually did and got to keep both copies :) .
adr0ck
the game i received was brand new and sealed (no probs there)

my issue is the fact that i havn't received one game......after me chasing ive found out i'm not going to receive this game (out of stock not getting any more in)

my problem is when and if i'm going to get my money back for this game???

anyone know?



I don't fancy your chances mate, I'm having problems with these myself at the moment.

I ordered 2 games over 3 weeks ago, they emailed me the next day to say they had been despatched but I have never received them. I have emailed and phoned them numerous times, when they have been bothered to reply/answer the phone they tell me they will sort it out ASAP but still nothing.
I've heard a lot of people state this over and over again with these guys.

Being sceptical myself, i've only ever ordered a handful of games from these guys and they've all been Brand New with the original cellophane around them.

I only found out about The Game Collection off AVF a couple of months ago....so i'm new to them...and thus far quite happy.

Even with The Gamez Hut, who seem to the very latest Online Games retailer...i was sceptical as they've got some bloody cheap games...however they've been perfect sending out sealed games...

Lol...i'm a risk taker...however if i get game and am not happy with it...it goes straight back. :x

Last week....had two problems...one with Softuk about a game that had been resealed...and obviously used....and the other with Dvd.co.uk...they sent me an american PS3 game!! The games were sent straight back with letters expressing my disgust and i was refunded promptly.
megamoo
£8.75? its hardly bad is it...


Your right I wouldn't argue the toss over that much, but its the fact they are being sold as new, after all if I wanted a second hand game I would go to the second hand game shop.

In actual fact I just stuck them on ebay and got my money back rather than have to deal with sending them back, and they were of course listed as used :thumbsup:

Flatout isn't on the list at my local Blockbuster. When I got Bioshock the other week I traded VT3 in. Although it was on the list they said that they shouldn't do the deal and it was supposed to be £20 tradein. They did it anyway when my toys went flying out the pram. Anyone know where to get the latest list for Blockbusters £9.99 tradein deal??


I traded Pirates: World End 360 yesterday and £9.99 for Bioshock. The girl was pretty clueless but said she would do the trade anyway after offering me £15 exchange at first until I mentioned the £9.99 deal.

I called before hand and asked which ones were part of the game + £9.99 deal, but they didn't know unless I named a title and they looked it up.
Adamo
Unlucky!

At Blockbuster this trades in as a chart title, so you'll get between the equivalent of £25 and £35 for it. It's in the Any Chart Title for £9.99 offer, so you trade in this game and get Bioshock for £9.99 (they sell it for £34.99), or even Tiger Woods (they sell for £44.99), bargain. :)

The delivery is really fast, i ordered on Sunday night and got it 36 hours later.
I plan to play the off-line 1st and maybe dabble with the online if i like it, maybe subscribe for 1 month and blitz it.
Reviews are not the best, ranging from 4.5/10 to 8/10.
It says on the cover that you get a 2 day online trial free.
I imported the Japanese version of this on the PC back when it launched (for the online play) and got this when it came out in the UK for the 360 (for the story).

Firstly, the online play is much of the tried and tested PSO formula but there are differences to class structure, weapon use etc. It does feel alot like a faster paced PSO and that is not necessarily a bad thing. For a jump-in party-based MMO it can certainly hold its ground, I played the Japanese version for several months and never got bored.

The story mode was quite enjoyable and it is a definite step up from PSO's take on a story. The game is filled with cutscenes and it is overall an interesting story that is easy to follow. What may interest alot of people is that the gamerpoints are structured so that completing the game on story mode = 1000 gamerpoints (you get an achievement for defeating each boss).

Any questions anyone has I'm happy to give my opinion ;).
True, but if it is anything like the original PSO the single player mode is very tedious.

Dave.

so its 7 quid a month? :(

hot deal for the game, im not into paying even 8 quid for a game, i have to pay 7 quid a month (84 quid a year) to play

You only have to pay that if you want to play online, there's still story mode and extra mode (Create your own character and play missions by yourself)

I have had 1 of these for a month or 2 now worked straight out of the box on my sons Wii and Xbox360 also I have a Sony component DVD output onto my TV great bit of kit I use it as a splitter because my Sony TV only has 1 component input. Also bear in mind you get the 360 component lead and most of the other leads in the box.
It's a HD Component splitter.
On mine, I have my Wii, Xbox and Xbox360 all plugged in and routing their ethernet connections at the same time.

Sorry to be dumb, but in a nut shell, whats the point of this!?



I'm quite interested in this, I think it's basically an advanced scart box? I need a scart box with remote control and also something to allow me to re-route music to different speakers, so basically a few inputs and a couple of outputs with either headphone jack connectors or phonos.

Anyone know anything that sounds like that?

The student discount doesn't apply to consoles, however h2w is right, its giving you it. Just added this to my basket and its saying £30 discount. I would be tempted to order it if it was in stock and not "on order from supplier"



its not bad if u order from supplier, i ordered my on firday nite and it got here on wed morning.
i got 1 for £249 no games, did i cheat my slf..?
Sign up for one of there HMV cards and then you can get 10% off there and then ;)
If thats the case its just lazy programming on the part of their website developers!

I am pretty sure i checked it last xmas when looking to buy my girlfriend her DS and when i added the DS console to my basket it didn't take any student discount off.
Even if it's showing as student discount in basket, it won't go through. Once you've placed you're order, you'll usually have an email from a CS rep telling you that this is not allowed and that they can either cancel it or put the order through at full value.

xbox 360 logoXbox 360 - Games, Entertainment and Community: All in One Console

The Xbox 360 is a home console with a vast library of titles stretching back over a decade, and plenty of accessories to enhance the gaming experience. It can also be used to play DVDs or CDs, and access various entertainment apps, like Netflix, BBC iPlayer and 8Tracks Radio. Microsoft produced a number of different versions of the 360, as improvements were made to its appearance and hardware over time.

Global Sales of 84 Million and Counting

The Xbox 360 was developed to succeed Microsoft’s previous Xbox console, it was launched in direct competition with other seventh-generation devices, like the Nintendo Wii and the PlayStation 3. The first version was presented to the world on May 12th 2005 on the MTV channel and became an instant success, with players enjoying new features like achievement awards and online gaming. Over time, subsequent models with larger storage capacities, different finishes, and upgraded hard drives were released.

Versions of the Xbox 360

The Xbox 360 is available in five standard versions, none of which are still in production. Here is a list of those.

  • Xbox 360 Core: Later replaced by the Arcade, the Xbox 360 core was released in late 2005. It is a basic version of the console that came with a wired controller and a video cable that only offered Standard Definition. To achieve a HD resolution, users had to buy a separate D terminal cable but support for this feature was later provided in an update. The Core has no hard drive so to save games you would need a memory card.
  • Xbox 360 Pro or Premium: Released in late 2005, and often sold with the tag line "Go Pro", this version of the 360 came with either a 20GB or a 60GB detachable hard disk. Therefore, it was possible to download demos and save in-game progress. The controller is wireless and there’s a component lead for the TV. It was compatible with the original Xbox games and came with a free Live Arcade title, Hexic HD. Over time more advanced Falcon motherboards were introduced, along with an HDMI output and the machines became far quieter.
  • Xbox 360 Arcade: The Arcade was developed in 2007 to replace the Core, but is still quite a basic model. It comes with a wireless controller, an AV cable, HDMI output and a 256MB memory unit for game saves. A few Arcade titles came with the console on a disk, these were: Pac Man Championship Edition, Feeding Frenzy, Boom Boom Rocket, Luxor 2, and Uno. In 2009 the memory unit was replaced by a 512MB internal chip.
  • Xbox 360 Elite and the Super Elite: Generally considered to be the premium 360, this model was released in 2007 and came in two versions. The Elite had a 120GB hard drive, a matte black exterior, and matching controller and headset. It was initially offered as a bundle with Kung Fu Panda or Lego Indiana Jones. Released in 2009, the Super Elite had a black or a white finish and came with a 250GB hard drive and two wireless controllers. Some versions were special editions which included branding from games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, others came with exclusive downloads, such as Xbox 360 avatars.xbox 360 range
  • Xbox S or Slim: First released in 2010, the Xbox S is often referred to as the Slim. It comes in matte black, glossy black, or glossy white and has completely redesigned hardware, making it a smaller, faster and quieter console. It comes with a 4GB, 250GB or 320GB hard drive, a wireless controller and a composite AV cable, so it can be connected to a range of other devices.

Technical Specifications of the Xbox 360

The following specifications relate to the latest 360 version, the Xbox 360 Slim.

  • Measurements: 10.6 x 2.95 x 10.39 inches
  • Weight: 6.39 pounds
  • Processors: CPU: 3.2-GHz PowerPC Tri-Core Xenon
  • GPU: 500 MHz ATI Xenos
  • Memory: 512MB RAM
  • Hard drive: 250GB
  • Output: HDMI, Analogue AV, Composite Video, VGA
  • Connectivity: Ethernet, Wi-Fi

What Can an Xbox 360 Do?

It may be the oldest console of its generation but the 360 is still a worthy machine that is fully supported by Microsoft and remains an excellent home entertainment system. Once it’s connected up to a TV and a wireless network, you can use it to download and play games, check out the Microsoft Store, watch DVDs and listen to music. By paying a subscription, you gain access to Xbox Live Gold, an online gaming community managed by Microsoft that also supports Windows 10 for PC users and Windows Phones. You can visit game hubs to learn more about a title, see what people on your friends list are playing and speak to gamers from all over the world.

Which Storage Capacity and Colour is Best?

For watching DVDs and playing games, the 4GB version of the 360 will be perfectly adequate but if you plan on doing some serious gaming, on or offline, you’ll need extra storage space for saving game data and downloading content. Versions with added storage include the 250GB and the 500GB consoles, but these expanded hard drives cost more. If you’re unsure about what level of storage you’ll need, you can start with one of the smaller options, then upgrade further down the line by installing a larger hard drive.

The Xbox 360 can be bought in matte black, glossy black, and glossy white. The right colour for you will be the one which goes best in your home and appeals to your personal taste. Many people prefer black because it blends with other electrics, like DVD players and TVs, and isn’t obtrusive. Other buyers go for the refreshing white colour as it’s a change from the norm, it also looks clean and dust or fingerprints don’t show that much on it.

xbox 360 home entertainment

Xbox 360 or Xbox One?

Although plenty of consumers will go straight for the newer Xbox One or the even newer Xbox One S console, some people may prefer the Xbox 360 for a number of reasons. Primarily, it has a huge library of games, some of whiceh will not be available on the newer version because they are not backwards compatible. Moreover, as it is an older console, games for the 360 are getting cheaper all the time and it’s very easy to build up a collection of titles fast. Finally, as a legacy console, the Xbox 360 is far cheaper than its successor but still delivers a stunning, immersive performance.

Before buying an Xbox 360, it’s worth considering whether the benefits of the console outweigh the fact that it is an older version. There’s no doubt that many people still own one, using it to play games, connect to Xbox Live Gold and watch DVDs. Plus, it’s still available from numerous retailers and continuing technical support is offered by Microsoft. However, the Xbox One is a smaller, more compact model that eclipses the 360 with a vastly improved level of performance and breath-taking visuals. If you want a solid console for gaming, online connectivity and streaming media, the 360 is a satisfactory choice. However, if you are prepared to invest substantially more money in a console and its games, the Xbox One may be a better option in the long run.

How Does the Xbox 360 Compare to the PlayStation 3?

These two consoles have been compared against each other since 2006, when the PS3 was first released. They are very much equal in terms of games selection, price and processing power, but in other areas there are more marked differences.

Multimedia Features, Online Functionality and Motion Control Games

In terms of multimedia functionality, Microsoft has lagged behind Sony by offering a DVD player with an optional HD-DVD drive. In their PlayStation 3 Sony opted for the newer Blu-ray format which went on to become hugely popular.

Microsoft have Xbox Live and Sony have the PlayStation Network, both let players link up with one another for games and use a variety of services that are based online, like streaming films and downloading content. However, on a PlayStation most these services are free, but Xbox Live demands its users sign up for a paid membership before offering access to its more desirable features, like free downloads and multiplayer teams.

The Kinect is a motion control add-on that is placed near the TV and can sense how players are moving. It doesn’t use wands and no batteries are required. The Kinect was marketed with the phrase "You are the controller", and that’s exactly how game play feels. The PlayStation Move has a wand which enables a player to interact with the on-screen action, it offers a fun experience, but the Kinect feels smarter and more advanced in this area.

Accessories for the Xbox 360

Here are a few of the accessories which can be purchased to use with the Xbox 360.

  • Xbox 360 500GB Media Hard Drive: The Xbox 360 500GB Media Hard Drive can be used to boost the storage capacity of a console. It provides players with more space to keep their films, demos and games. It’s also possible to install game discs to this hard drive which reduces the time they take to load. Installation is easy as it slots into the side of most 360 consoles.

The on-ear headphones have foam padding for added comfort and the set comes complete with a boom mounted microphone.

  • Xbox 360 Play & Charge Kit: This kit comes in two sections, a battery pack and a cable. The battery pack can provide 25 hours of game play from a single charge. This makes it easier for players who don’t want to interrupt a game whilst they hunt around for new batteries. By pressing the guide button on the controller, you can see how much life the pack has left. If you’re running low, you can plug the cable in to the front of the Xbox to charge the battery pack whilst you play.
  • Kinect with Kinect Adventures: Kinect with Kinect Adventures is a motion sensor device and game. The sensor is positioned just above or below the TV and picks up the movement of players as they interact with the game. There are no handheld controllers or wires, so this device offers a unique way to play. You can also use it to navigate through pages of media content and films by flicking your hand.
