You can also get the old style Xbox 360 with Call of Duty ghosts for £169.99 on this deal

But I think the Fifa 14 bundle with the newer hardware is better.

Sorry, typo.
I have correct it
Heat heat
tempted- hot
With new consoles around the corner why would anyone pay more for a "new style" 360 over one of the older ones?
Seems stupid to me.
New style Xbox 360 250GB Console is £199.99 not £220.99, but good deal here never the less.

PS4 is out soon guys
This is a whole £1 cheaper at Grainger Games. Shows online but you can preorder in store as well for midnight pick-up if that's your sort of thing.

Grainger also offers 200 reward points for preordering, which is worth £2, plus 170 for the bundle and if it's your first purchase they double the points earned (so 340 for the bundle) meaning £5.40 off a future purchase.
im sure i read this has no optical??

Yep no optical and 1 usb slot removed I believe and its just a little shorter. Nothing wrong with the X360 S either, very reliable model
Best to buy the older model, same price with a new game and its the better model with no ports removed.

And to all those silly people saying that the Xbox One/PS4 is out soon, please explain to me how i can play GTA V, The Last of Us, Gears of War, Halo 4, Beyond Two Souls, Batman Arkham Origins etc on a PS4/Xbox One? oh that's right....you can't!, so please stop with those comments.

Thanks for the heads-up. Useful insider knowledge, do you work for Sony or something?

Good price if you really want an xbox ,but I would pay more, £199 for the ps3 with tlou and GTA v

Well GTA v and batman will probably be released on next gen and halo/gow will probably have a new version out for the next gen .....and nowadays with the collection of every game HD coming out ,most of these games will be avalible from online digital download or be rereleased in collectors editions or are order bonus of sequels ....
Personally I wouldnt invest in an old console with the new ones so close ,but if you must
If you can still pick up the older style slim, I'd recommend that over this new model, this one has no componant output so if you have an older HD TV or have one of the older capture devices you are out of luck, it also doesn't have optical out, so unless your TV itself output Dolby Digital via the Optical out, anyone with Astro Mixamp or TB XP500 or a similar device won't be able to get 5.1 surround sound anymore. It also only has one less USB port but I don't think that's really an issue.

The older model is the better buy still, (also looks better) it's apparent the Xbox 360E is designed to be a cut price console alternative after the XB1 is released.
Surely wait for this bundle to show up on Tesco and use the £20 off code for £149 ????? Am I missing something?

Or do this instead?

Good and bad points in there.

It all depends how patient you are. If you don't play much online, and really want a new console to play, then it's probably worth holding off for a year, playing and enjoying some older titles, plus the wave of very good current/recent ps3 and 360 titles that are out / still to come out, then moving on once the new platforms have a better range or titles.
This way, you can play some proper amazing games right now, rather than looking to the dregs that are available post launch and paying lots for the privilege, then choose carefully from the titles for the new console in a year, picking up some discount by then too..

The PS3 and this deal stand up because of their back-catalogue and lower cost relative to "next gen". Even as a PC user with a largely retired xbox I went for the PS3 + GTAV + Last of Us for £200 adding 3 more well regarded exclusives for about a tenner each. Online GTA V with PS3 is the cheapest option too I think.

In a year's time the PS4 and XBox 1 game situation may well make them sensible choices but not yet.

The 360 and PS3 are far less expensive, have literally hundreds of good games available at bargain prices. Can you say the same about the new consoles? Are you really that "stupid" that you can't see why people would prefer that? Not everyone is an early adopter-especially those who've been ripped off by getting suckered into that in the past.
So if the Xbox Slim is now the old one, what the hell is my white premier 20GB with no HDMI? A collectors item!?!

Ha there's always one
Very nice deal. I think the only difference other than shape between old model and new model is there is 1 less USB port on the new one? Still it looks very nice and most people I expect would use wireless controllers.

Heat added.
it will be £159.99 in store at game for the fifa launch
can't beat a bit of FIFA this looks great.

Maybe because the 360 has hundreds of excellent games, costs around £260 less (this particular deal, anyway) and is still current?
This is £159.99 in-store at GAME from Friday.
The new console looks pretty good to be fair (owning one), lot quieter than the original arcade model that's for sure !
I know it's subjective and all but my thoughts on the design of this here reiteration of the 360 are negatory, good buddy. Likewise the xbox one. It's not retro enough to be cool and the black vhs look just isn't working.
I love the styling of this new xbox but ultimately its designed to hit a lower price point. The chipset inside is the same as the most recent original xbox slim and that has additional socketry. That would seem a better option if cheaper. A jasper original model can be picked up very cheap and they are very reliable. There are other cheaper options and they have some additional features over this model.
Forget ps4 there's only 1 console and that's xbox one
thought I saw this today for 149 in argos sale book

You didn't read my comment did you.
I mentioned the new consoles around the corner mainly for the saving money aspect, anyone wanting to spend this amount on an old console is probably a gamer who is going to be thinking of purchasing a new one when they're released.

The question I asked was why someone would buy a "new style" 360 over the "old style" 360 when there is nothing better about it. If anything, it is worse.

It was a good deal when I posted it 2 days ago. Obviously last night's tesco deal blows this one out of the water.
Glad I held off. I have ordered the Tesco deal.
