HMV XBOX 360 4GB Console £87.99

£87.99HMV Deals

Found 7th Oct 2011
Just been to HMV Moorgate to get a new Xbox 360 4GB. They are doing a deal it seems with Fifa 12 and Gears of War 3 for £139.99.

If you then trade in the free games for cash value of £26 each you end up with the console for just 87.99.

Now I'm not sure if the guy in store messed up as all seems too good to be true. He also gave me trade in price of £36 for each game so you could ask for this as I thought it was technically a trade. This would be 67.99. I didnt ask as I already wondered whether I was getting too good a deal. Receipt attached.

First post so please be gentle.

Joe, I saw a deal with Gears or Fifa, not both? And not with the immediate trade idea at HMV. Sorry if I'm wrong, I will delete this post entirely?
It was with both games but am sure it was 149 not 139 if that helps. Heat added from me.

Amazing deal. Sell the games and you've got yourself a 360 for approx £90.



Lol, it should be removed from site imediately because i am complaining

im jsut being an ass really, its quite fun! but this is what i was on about hotukdeals.com/dea…522

you only really brought to the table the concept of trading in the games, but hey its more concept than most ;)... im sure most people would at least want either one of the games though.. but hey ho

but still, i suppose some do find it useful to have thigns reposted

P.s it is also in hotest deals of today on the right hand side of your screen lol
whats the point in having the console with no games to play on it as youve traded them in?

That made me cough mydrink up through my nose in a very quiet office.

Thanks for cheering up my Friday.
I doubt they would let you trade in the games before you have actually bought them with the console!, but worth cheekily trying.

I have a busted console that I have repaired twice already. It's on the brink and I can't be bothered to keep opening it up and applying more thermal grease. Plus it's noisy and white - all my other gear is a lot quieter and in black.

Cheap upgrade for someone that has a 360 with lots of games already but their existing console is borked, and can be patient in waiting for Gears Of War 3 and Fifa 12 to come down in price/and or are not interested in those games.

It is matte.
Did they not always do the 4GB Slim in Matte only the Hard Disk version in Gloss previously?
I need to replace my premium console as it's fan is sounding like its about to take off.

I wanted the 250gb model though. Anyone know where I can get a cheap harddrive from?
I wonder if you could do this the other way around and trade in the console to get both games cheap?

are you a gay fish?
Could effectively get this for £83.99 if you sell the games to Cex instead or even £81.99 if you get Gamestation to price match Cex.
Wonder what they would give you for the controller & powerbrick lol
Fleabay or Blockbuster. I got a 60gb for £11 (i think). You need to break casing open and it slots in back. No bothers at all. Check Youtube vids if in doubt.
So I can break open the larger HDD to work on the slim 360?
hmmm anyone know what they offer for a 360 120gb elite, may be worth swapping

yea, its easy, 2 minute job and it just slips in then you transfer licences over via the dashboard
I used a 60GB in mine. Works like a charm, with the added benefit of the 360 being matt black

I was just looking at that myself on my android phone app, HMV Replay...they offer £80 trade in and £65 cash, only problem then is having to buy a 2.5" SATA 120GB hard disk.

Still i don't think i'd mind paying like £30 for the upgrade in console =]
These are the deals i like as it makes the most of what you have.

I did similar last Oct / Nov when Sainsburys had the 4gb with 2 games from a choice of about 6. I actually took the games back separately to two different stores as unwanted and got a full refund on both, so effectively got the console, which i have as a 2nd 360 for the bedroom, for only £70!! Nice.

So 7.99 + an elite? do you have to give a controller when you trade in?
Could just stick a 16gb flash drive in does the job
How can I get this deal on my ass? I hate travelling in central.

Do you know which SATA drives are compatible?, it has been a long time (pre-slim) before I have looked into 360 bins for hard disks.

Does not state on the app, but I reckon that is has to be complete.
I have a non slim XBox and recently bought a 250Gb hard drive for it.

Could I use that hard drive, by removing it from its casing, with an XBox slim?
YES look here

Did it show as full price for the games on the receipt? I'm surprised they did not invalidate the initial offer and offer less back.

Yes you can, no problem at all. The drive will work fine, it's just a standard SATA connection.
You can buy a cheap hard drive case for the slim from eBay for around a fiver, you don't need one, it just makes it a snug fit so no chance of it sliding out if moving the xbox around.
