I wouldn't call the kinect 'essential' though.

Or even a game to get you started as that's pretty essential.

If it had a game that deal would be ok

Just bought this after being burned by the 247 Electronics Deal.

Extra controller £30, 12 months Live £25.

£265 for Console seems a pretty good deal to me. Heat added.

Is 12 months Xbox live really essential? Anyone can play offline.
Is the second controller? Anyone is able to play by themselves, I wouldnt exactly call these essentials either, but they're there.

The deal is ok, The price is good and I voted hot it just wouldve been nice if it had kinect considering it comes with no games?

Voted hot as well but could of been better with a game included

Well, as I've said I got burned on the £270 '247 Electronics' deal, so have been looking at alternatives and not seen anything near this.:(

Bit different for me as I have 3 youngish kids who could all play together, and to start with will probably love the free Live Gold games, and I was getting Minecraft anyway.

I realise for some the extra controller and Live Gold pass isn't a deal breaker, but works for me.8)

Only 5% claimed so far.

Was v tempted, but may wait until tomorrows deal...hopefully better

Yeah, if you go on their site they have posted an apology that they haven't been able to dispatch orders due to the sheer amount from black friday. I was panicking myself, they'll be dispatched this week

Nearly 2500 posts on the PS4 Black Friday 247 Electronics deal, a support Facebook group started (209 members after being started a few hours ago), and a pile of mounting evidence to suggest that this company will not be fulfilling any orders anytime soon...:(

Not sure I'd be holding my breathe. It might happen, but no one has heard a single thing from them all week other than the website update on Monday, and the same update on their FB page. Paypal have confirmed to multiple people they have frozen 247's account.

There has been no further updates or communication to anyone from 247 since Monday. Not as single answered phone or replied email or a short social media post. It really doesn't look good...

Ultimate essentials, not ultimate pack.

I did say that the 247 deal was a con.

They first sold a few ps4s and xbones fulfilling the orders and going out of stock very very quickly. They earned the trust and used this site to spread the word.

They then used black friday to sell super cheap consoles under cutting the big players.

I think it's a good deal. Free games courtesy of the Xbox Live subscription. Extra controller always comes in handy!

I think the Game bundles are better value; up to 4 games, 2 controllers for an extra £30? I think this deal could be better, if it had just one decent game I'd buy it.

I've posted some links to other threads, but basically they had 2 massive deals on BF, one for a PS4 bundle and one for a Xbox One bundle. No one has heard anything from them, they can't be contacted, their business addresses are vacant or don't exist, Paypal have frozen their accounts, directors have changed very recently - it is all looking very dodgy. Hopefully everyone will be protected by Paypal, credit cards and banks getting the chargebacks from the debit card payments.

I'm assuming there will be another deal on xbox one? hope so...wouldnt mind one with kinect.
Really should have got the xbox at £270 last week!

There is a new update on their website (and the other threads on this site) explaining what happened. Apparently their server went down and they lost access to restrict sales. It sounds like they basically had 400 PS4's and Xbox's but sold over 3000 on Black Friday!

The upshot is, no one is getting anything, but they will be honouring refunds. I suggest you have a poke around the other threads for more advice.

Can anyone see today's lightning deals for this atm? I can't see it, has it been pulled? *confused*

EDIT: Have spoke to Amazon Chat, they have no clue what's happened. Have been told a supervisor will be contacting me in a bit.

Still waiting, but I'm not expecting much. I did ask for someone from the Daily Deals team to get in touch, seeing as the woman I was talking to didn't have a clue what I was on about (she thought the last lightning deals they did were the Cyber Monday ones), but she said she would get her supervisor to contact me so who knows.

I did say that it was a bit off that they'd pulled a deal that they featured in the Deals email for today but again, I don't think she knew what I was on about.

Well it's past 6:30 now and the deals still aren't appearing so I guess they withdrew them for whatever reason. I'll post if I get any reply from Amazon about it.

Fingers crossed for the next ones (really want the Kinect deal)
