Crappy description, as the 360 Full comes with a Wireless Controller and Hard Disk does this then mean it does come with an extra Wireless Controller and 64MB Memory card?
Anyway can't find any in Yorkshire

Don't forget 5% quidco too...!

They are available for delivery though darkovo, but you wouldn't get the faceplate...

Agreed, it's not a great description on their website though

so does this come with the 20gb hard drive then? i aint clicking submit till i know :-D
good find if it does

Original Poster

Well it shows the hard drive in the picture - compare the pics of this and the xbox core system on their site. I tried to phone them a wee while ago, but they were closed for the night.

To tell you the truth, this is one of those "buy-now-think-later" deals. If it turns out not to, simply cancel the order, no harm done.

Obviously I won't be able to confirm this until I get someone on the phone tomorrow. There's been a bit of a conversation about it over at MSE - they are all arguing as well whether or not it'sd the premium system.

Click ][COLOR="Blue"]here [/COLOR]if you want to read that.

What I would recommend - buy it then make sure in the morning when the phone lines open. Nothing gained, nothing lost. :thumbsup:

yeh, gotta take the chance. gone for it, printed page off as well should i need it. used quidco too.
had to go for delivery, but would have liked the england faceplate, oh well. thanks emmajk42

Original Poster

You're welcome. I really think this is the premium model though (I could be eating my words tomorrow though!) - if you look at the premium models on PCWorld website, they all say FULL system. On the FP of PCWorld, where this deal came from, it also says FULL system.

If by some chance it is only the core system, PCWorld are very naughty boys and have probably misled a lot of customers. But we'll see in the morning. Whoever is first up can phone them!

Emma what are you doin to me!!! :O first i spend £50 to get my lovely keyboard and mouse which i am happily using now. Then my GF decides she wants her own set and she buys one too, NOW i have just gone ahead and forked out £245 for a bloomin xbox 360. I just couldn't resist. Great find though can't say I'm not excited all i need to do now is go and fork out more cash for a game to play on it lol. Any ideas on good (cheap) places to get games? (i.e Pro Evo if possible)

Original Poster

LOL. I know this site is supposed to make you save money not spend it! I'd get this deal too, if I hadn't spent £340 a few months ago on the graphics card in my PC - I just cannot justify an XBOX 360 as well!!!

Lots of people have posted good deals on here lately for XBOX 360 games. If there are some you are specifically looking for, use one of the search engines I use to compare games:

]http//uk…om/
]http//ww…uk/

They are both very good and have a pricewatch function, so if the game goes below a certain price, it emails you an alert.

Pro Evolution Soccer 6 (Xbox 360) is £40 everywhere at the minute. I'd wait a while for a drop. You could get it from HMV using a £5 off voucher from the voucher section, making it £35. That's the cheapest I can see.

By the way - I think there are a few bargains in the ][COLOR=blue]Play.com[/COLOR] summer sale, xbox 360 section - worth a look.

As always cheers emma for your help! appreciated mucho!

Thanks emma I was trying to decide if I was going to get one or not and I guess you've just made up my mind. Ive just added the quidco extra 5% into this which makes it even better!

Please note that this is NOT the version with the 20GB Harddrive.The … Please note that this is NOT the version with the 20GB Harddrive.The version with the Harddrive still costs 349 GBP.Link: ]http://www.pcworld.co.uk/martprd/store/pcw_page.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0508067482.1152319289@@@@&BV_EngineID=ccchaddiffgkjeecflgceggdhhmdfhm.0&page=Product&fm=null&sm=null&tm=null&sku=085043&category_oid=


Personally I think this is the version with the 20gb hard drive as its advertised on the front page as the 'Full' version. If it wasn't this along with the words in the title "[SIZE=2]WITH EXTRA MEMORY + WIRELESS CONTROLLER" would constitute false advertising.

I guess the only way to find out is to contact them directly so if anyone can let us know as im working all day tomorrow and wont be online.

Thanks again emma.

Its definetly the Premium as its normal price is £279.99. The core is £209.99.

The extra memory and wireless controller is just a stupid description to make you think you are getting something extra.

Its the premium Xbox 360, nothing more, nothing less.

Code : 5PCWPERKZ

This will give you £12.85 off :thumbsup:

STILL AVAILABLE! JUST PHONED THEM - IT IS THE PREMIUM VERSION

Had a terrible operative who said it was the core edition and I asked him to double check, he went away for 10 minutes, them said it was DEFINITELY the premiu7m version.

Brilliant Chris! If it says extra WiFi controller - does that mean you get 2 with the deal?

Right i kind of jumped on this last night, like you said emma "buy now think later". Is it well worth the money you think now with the confirmation you got this morning?

Original Poster

It's definitely worth it, these are around £280 everywhere else.

Although with the iminent arrival of the PS3, I can see these dropping even further, but that's not something you can predict, and you take the same chance with any electrical goods you buy - as the market is so fast-paced.

Can someone please confirm whether or not it's got one or two controllers?

i also want to know this! cheers

Original Poster

I can't confirm this. I ain't phoning them again on a national rate number guys (Cause I don't pay the phonebill!).... but if else is able to, the number is [COLOR=#ff0000]08702 420444. [/COLOR]

I rang up and the guy didn't seem to hvae a clue what was going on :\

Oh dear. I guess we are just going to have to wait and see when the first people receive theirs. I'm keeping an eye on this on a few other forums, so if someone on those gets one first, I'll let you all know.

Some reassuring news from hexus forums:

ibrien14

it is the premium trust me i work at pc world and the one on my receipt … it is the premium trust me i work at pc world and the one on my receipt from when i got mine it says it has extra memorty ******** but trust me its the full



Original Poster

Price has now gone back up to normal, I've clicked expired on it.

Banned

Freephone number for them is: 0800 0565732, then press 2. Exactly the same as 0870 one. I phoned, spoke to a guy called Daniel..he wasnt very helpful.

The price does look like its gone back to normal but note the additional Wireless controller added to the basket when you add it. If its the FULL system with an extra wireless controller then your saving about £12, add the £15ish the discount code gives you and you have a total saving of approx £27 pounds.
The only problem is I can't find it in stock anywhere and there is no stock of the console for delivery!

just had it delivered. it is the premium 360. but it only has 1 controller and i haven't seen the 64mb memory card. think i'll give em a ring

ok, i rang em up with the freephone no, got transfered to aftersales who say they'll get them shipped out to me.

They said they will ship you out an extra controller and memory card?

thats what he said. he checked my order no. and said they will be sent by dhl. wait and see??

Nice one :thumbsup:

Awww, just as we get confirmation there are two controllers, the price goes back up! :-)

/kicks self

Stop kicking yourself! As I said earlier, "Buy now, think later". I think that's going to be my motto....!

got mine today no extra memory or controller, rang them up and they are shipping it out to me

Original Poster

Good - advice to everyone here - if you do not receive this extra controller and memory, get on the bell to them straight away.

See Kommunist's post with voucher for discount on this from PC world.

I'm not up to speed on xbox but it may be the same system even cheaper now?

Original Poster

It went up in price Mike, so even with Kommunist's voucher today, it's not as cheap as it was last week. Thanks.
