I was in Gamestation other day trading my ps3 for an elite. I saw Guitar Hero 3 (xbox 360) at £49.99 and that was just for the game. The guy said to me as silly as it sounds its actually cheaper to by the game with the guitar at £40 so i got game and guitar for £40 and becuase they have a deal on where you receive a free guitar if you buy a guitar hero game i received an extra guitar. So equaling Game and 2 guitars (brand new) at £40. Deal!

awesome

Sound good,
Out of curiosity, do you feel the elite is better than the PS3??
DP has an elite but I was gonna get him a PS3, should I steer clear??

Hot deal, but not as hot as the trade you made. Repped :thumbsup:

Me personally i would say the elite is much better for gameplay especially online gameplay. The ps3 is probably better for entertainment as it has blu ray player so depends really...:)

Cheers, may rethink that one!

each console has its goods and its bads.

Good deal.

Regarding the question about the PS3 and XBOX 360, I have both and in fact I've just got an spare XBOX 360 for the bedroom which cost me only £80 from Marshall Ward using the £50 off (telephone orders only) voucher. I have to say they are both good and I have thought about selling my PS3 more than once but my kids simply love Little Big Planet and now I have BUZZ and it's fantastic. But overall I prefer the XBOX 360.

Wired or wireless?

Wired or wireless?



IIRC, You get the wireless Gibson Les Paul with GH3, and the freebie on the 360 (in my local store anyway) is a wired Gibson X-Plorer (the wired guitar from GH2).

The Les Paul is still the greatest (plastic) guitar ever made! I prefer it to the new GH:WT guitar, but maybe because I'm used to the Les Paul (I can do TTFAF on Expert with the Les Paul, but for some reason can't with the GH:WT guitar).

This is a great deal.

I have both an xbox (not elite but use a component cable with it) and a PS3 and to be honest I haven't even played the 360 in at least 6 months. I can see why some people would prefer it I guess as there seem to be a lot more people playing 360 online than PS3, but for me there's plenty of people online gaming on PS3 and it's free. My PS3 doesn't hardly make a sound even when reading off the disc, whereas my 360 sounds as if it's trying to take off all the time.... anyway won't go on, but plenty about the PS3 that just seems better than 360 to me.

This is great. I've been looking at getting 360 instruments for a while now, pending the sale of my PS2 guitar. I guess I could trade that in at Gamestation and get this! So it's £49.99 for the game-only but £40 for the game+guitar bundle with which you get a free guitar? :?
If I get that it will then be off to Currys for Rock Band 'band in a box' for £70!
Then I just need some friends. :thinking:


As for those wondering about which console to get - I don't understand why people go on about Xbox vs Playstation. If you just had a 360 or just had a PS3 you'd be pretty bored, right? I mean how long can looking at the pretty menu screens keep you entertained for? Surely you need some games to go with it? So isn't more about the software than the hardware? In that case you need to go where the games are. If you want to play an exclusive game then you need the console it's exclusive for. If you'd rather play Halo 3 than Metal Gear Solid 4 then the 360 is the console for you - vice versa and it's the PS3. When it comes to multi-platform games like Guitar Hero then you need to look at other factors. If price matters then go with the cheaper console - technically (for Guitar Hero) that would be the PS2 I guess(!), then the 360/Wii, then PS3. It's generally held that the 360 has a better online community, but then you have to pay for it. The PS3 has blu-ray but you could always get a separate player if you went for a different console. So what I'm saying is forget about the hardware and just go where the games are. Of course if you're such a hardcore gamer that you have to play everything you end up with all the consoles sooner or later.

I have an elite and PS3 and I wouldn't trade either of them!

and there are those that only say how 'fantastic' the xbox is based purely on the fact that you can chip / play copied games on them .. :whistling:

is this a new game/hardware? or is it preowned? I know how much gamestation love their preowned stuff.

Funny no one apart from you has mentioned that yet :whistling:

Related to the post. HOT deal.

I own a 360, but frequently play on a PS3... both are good consoles. The only thing my 360 lacks in comparison to the PS3 is the abillity to play Blu-Ray. Something Im not in the market for just yet. Each to their own. Some people will be so tunnel minded they will never accept anything good about another console. I was a great hater of the orignal Xbox yet ended up buying a 360, and really enjoying it.

im another multi console owner and my unbias opinion is the 360 [especially online] is waaay better than the rest. When you factor in the cheap prices and games it really is a no brainer.

just toss a coin mate! .....heads or tails u'll get a quality console either way!

paddy.stone;4855063

my 360 sounds as if it's trying to take off all the time


Install the game to the HDD, it makes a hell of a difference. Even with the 20GB HDD, you'll fit one installed game on there.

Also, I'm proud of us all for not letting this degenerate! I'm a 360 owner, but I'm PS3 curious. Just waiting for the price to drop a bit more...

Ok maybe i will buy ps3 for him! If its a good console, I know he was looking at games only avaliable to PS3
We have a few 360's and 1 is chipped but no longer works online! lol

I just picked up an Elite recently (Marshall Ward £150 deal :)) and I agree with the above post. I bought the 360 because I wanted some games that weren't on the PS3, but the noise, lack of built in wireless, controllers that need batteries and non free online play (not that I play much anyway) are a turn off. If I could only have one console, it would be the PS3.
Not saying the 360 is bad though, just that its not my first choice. I'm sure I'd be happy with either (if I didn't get to choose).

Agreed

I mean, dont get me wrong, they all have upsides and downsides, but overall, i'd say the 360 is king.

I think I prefer the Xbox for games (multiplatform games normally perform better on the 360) but in a direct comparison of the hardware/build quality the PS3 is much better. My Xbox is loud even when the games are installed. The PS3 remains ultra quiet even after hours of gaming. My Xbox's DVD also drive grinds and it's currently in Germany being repaired because of the three red lights.

Regarding the deal, pretty good. I bought GH Aerosmith on the 360 with the Les Paul for £30 a week or two back.

Well, I'm a gadget freak & have 2 x PS3, XBOX + HD Drive, Wii & EP-30 HD player.

PS3, XBOX + HD Drive & Wii - Downstairs

PS3, EP-30 HD Player in bedroom.

I can honestly say that I haven't played a game on X-Box for 12 months.

(I'm not a show off but the reason for 2 PS3's is that I wanted a blu-ray player for bedroom, but it was cheaper to buy a 40gb for bedroom (£95 off playtrade) Its got a couple of nutty scratches on the front, but plays games & blu's fine)

I feel that with no annual subscription to PSN (save £30 a year), built in wireless (save £60) & offical PS accesories being reasonably priced (ie Headset for £18, blu-ray remote for £15, etc) Microsoft are only suppling 1/2 a machine & their acc's are over-priced.

But...........

Either are great if you haven't got either

Can the OP or someone who knows answer this please? According to the link (gamstation website) GH3 with guitar for the 360 is £40 pre-owned, not new.

Is this an in-store deal only? Is it exclusive to the store you went to? More details please as I would love to be able to get this deal myself (and vote it hot :thumbsup:)

Cheers.

Great deal, heat added!

Love how this had turned into a debate on ps3 and xbox-may as well have my say!
I own an xbox and have had red rings 3 times (something to do with the component cable) but still i wudnt swap it, love it too much.
Housemates have got ps3 so iv played it and it is an amazing console-the build is incredible, feels so sturdy. The xbox feels cheap, especially the disk tray!
However, i much prefer the online games and the controller so depends wat u like.
Plus the blu-ray is a bonus!

You don't "Chip" Xbox's you "flash" them.:-D

I used to have a 360... well 3 360's.... Had the dreaded RROD on 2 of them and a faulty disc drive on the other. That prompted me to get a PS3 instead, and I've been happy with it since.

I often find myself being tempted by new 360 offers on this site though, as I'd like to get hold of Left 4 Dead, GOW2, Fable 2 and Braid.

The problem though, for me, is the cost of the accessories. The cost of the 360 shouldn't be taken in isolation. It will end up costing you more than a PS3 in the long run, if you plan on going online with it. Especially if you need a wireless adaptor at £50-60. The live service costs about £25-30 per year, and then there's the cost of charging kits or batteries for the wireless controllers.

I'd quite like a 360 again, but having had 3 that have broken, I'm not sure I can justify the price, with the accessories and live subscription. And I'd not consider getting rid of the PS3.

Same here but at the same time if i had to choose between the two i would keep the 360.

Both good consoles, PS3 probably got more long term prospects but currently games seem a little sharper on 360 as it's more established I have a ps3, very pleased with it and really am tempted to buy an xbox also as I really like them too but can't seem to swallow spending money on something that will break (no ifs or buts, they break) it's just a question of how long? Sony have announced they will be matching software companies development costs to encourage dev's to create PS3 exclusives so we might see some incredible improvements in a year or so. Then again we might not as developers like the convenience of the PC/Xbox similarities. At present games are very similar on both but you do get the blu ray with PS3 and to be honest when you add up all the extra Microsoft charge you for (online subscription, wireless box, HD's etc) , they are the same price!!! The PS3 is FAR quieter and the noise levels of Xbox seems to annoy a lot of people and lastly for me , you just can't improve on the PS3/PS2 handset, they are so intuitive. But to be fair both consoles are excellent and well worth the money.

is this a new game/hardware? or is it preowned? I know how much gamestation love their preowned stuff.

Im planning to get a PS3 when theres a good deal on. But I can definately recommend the 360 - its a great console in terms of games, slightly less in terms of reliability of hardware.

OK, Third time lucky maybe?

For anyone who is not just discussing which console they love/hate, can anyone confirm if this is new game/guitar, used game/guitar, in-store only, one specific store (if so where?), one specific salesperson who was in a good mood or what please? Cheers.

Yeah, I'd like to know this too. I haven't got round to checking in Gamestation yet and I kind of wanted to know that other people were finding this before I went.

It clearly states brand new in the title.

Rang my local gamestation and it wasn't this price could be local. Went into Game who were doing GH World Tour guitar version, with an extra guitar (official one) for £59.99, which isn't too bad

Yes thank you I can read I said can anyone confirm please i.e. has more than 1 person been able to get this or was the OP just lucky, confused, etc.

Voted cold (not nastily.) Reason: There is no evidence of a deal that more than 1 person has been able to obtain.

P.S. I bought 2 of the wired guitars from Argos (now that's a good deal!) and a pre-owned GH3 from blockbuster; total spend just under £33 - that'll do me nicely

this deal IS genuine, i just sadly couldnt find a Guitar Hero game instore to buy
