HMV Gatwick have 250gb console + New Splinter Cell + Tiger Woods 11 for £197. Not a deal as such, since not accessible to all, but thought it was worth a shout in case anyone is travelling on a late holiday or business.

I was thinking of upgrading my old first-build Xbox 360 to the new slim. I wonder if it would be worth buying a deal like this and selling the games? Do you think they would be worth enough to money to make the deal better than the £177 direct-Microsoft offer?

this was this price on launch day in argos,the console was £189.99 and the three game pack was £9.99 and you got a £5 off voucher for your next game purchase,this is just typical argos trying to make the same price sound great..also they are sying save £70 quid,do argos honestly think anyone with a bit of savy believes any of the tree game packs are worth £80 quid

Do these have the Jasper graphics chip? How do they cope with the heat being a smaller case?

No. These are all low-value (but good) games. I don't think you will make £23 profit selling these on eBay or anywhere else. In fact, I think you would be pushed to make £23 before eBay or PayPal take their cut, never mind your postage & packaging costs. I am an experienced eBay seller (1300 feedback) so I know what I am talking about. Get the £177 option and save your self the bother of dealing with the **** buyers on eBay.

WAY WAY BETTER THAN THE PS3!!!

Its another good deal, Gears of War 2, Project Gotham Racing 4, Fable all fantastic.

With the new hardware and price point 360 is now destroying the ps3 and wii global sales wise.

I've noticed the new SLIM runs SUPER HOT. Especially since the main exhaust vent is on the right hand side of the console, so to be honest, you should place the xbox down flat (horizontally) so the heat goes up, rather than what most people do is upright.

But its definetely quiter. However, the DVD drive is still noisy as hell so you need to install the games to ur HDD.
The PSU also has a fan on it and makes a little bit of noise.
I find the touch sensitive button for the eject well annoying as sometimes mine doesnt work when the console is hot.

The new pad is very nice aswell, its black shiny instead of the grey parts and the xbox button is chromed out.

good choice of games if you have never owned a 360 before, other than that better to buy it on the other deal.

Old news. Been this price since day one with the exact same game offer.

This was a great deal (are they still doing the 2 game packs - 6 games in total) for £209.99?
I know they're older games (but still goodies) and was able to sell my Jasper Super Elite with those for within a few £ of what the new Xbox S cost me.
Result.

Strange, that's not my experience.
I've always sat my Xbox upright due to space considerations. I've had the 60gb Pro, the 120gb Elite, 250gb Super Elite and now the Xbox S.
So long as you don't move them while they are running a disc (the fastest way to wreck a disc) upright has always worked for me.

Yes, but you now get free delivery and some quidco/topcashback (1.5%)
I got the GOW2 Pack, all are standard games except PGR 4 which is "Best Seller" "Classics" version
3 Games come wrapped in one package, not individually wrapped but still have the Xbox CoA barcode on.

Edit : Not showing as free delivery for console + 3 games pack, but once game pack is deleted, free delivery is shown!
Edited by: "Zek" 22nd Aug 2010

its always the same 2+year games they give with.

im getting charged £280 instead of £230 when adding both games packs, anyone else getting this?

those game packs are worth **** all.

Agent47those game packs are worth **** all.



Have to disagree, Fable 2, Gears of War 2, Halo 3 & Halo Wars are all pretty recent good (1st 3 are classic great) games.
I already had most of the 6 but including them with my not so old 250gb Super Elite meant I basically swapped to the new Xbox S for about £10. Total result.
So IMHO they were well worth it.

After Halo Reach and Gears 3 the Xbox has no games.

PS3 has Killzone 3, Little Bigplanet 2, Gran Turismo 5, Resistance 3, Uncharted 3, Last Guardian, Final Fantasy Versus, SOCOM 4, Twisted Metal, Motorstorm Apocalypse.

Oh and something called Mass Effect coming to PS3.

Sucks to be a 360 owner...

There's a difference between "worth" and "good" though. Those games are good, certainly, but they're old and worth very little. Two of them can often be found for a few quid on ebay, GOW2 roughly £5-7 or £10-12 brand new for the GOTY edition. They'll have very little resale or trade-in value once completed.

They're basically very cheap games that add little value to the package that you're paying for in terms of monetary value. The overall deal is OK, especially if you're into collecting games, but maybe it's worth getting one with a newer game with the console for £200, that way you play a game that is hot right now instead of long after it's been out and most of the community have moved on, and furthermore get more value with sale/trade-in after you want to get rid.

Guess it depends on what type of console gamer you are.

It might be a little annoying for you to hear but, other than Kinect based shovelware, Fable III, GoW 3 and Halo, what exactly is there....?

Lets not turn this into a Flame war please...

Would be nice for once

These NEW slim's cannot be flashed yet, correct?

"Yet" being the operative work. I'm getting one tonight anyway awaiting the flashing solution

Just FYI, if you want both packs the total price is £229. I couldn't get this to work online, but they could do it in store as part of their "WOW" deal.

I think you mean £209.99.

That's what I paid for mine with 2 packs the 1st time this deal was offered.
The brand new games helped me sell my 250gb Jasper Super Elite & get back almost all of the cost of the Xbox S.
Result.

Cant get this offer to come up, anyone know if its expired or not?

has it expired?

Maybe I just want to backup my games and not have them ruined?!?!

Had these in my local Tescos (Haverfordwest) today for £189.99

No they have the new Valhalla chip that uses a 45 nanometer integrated … No they have the new Valhalla chip that uses a 45 nanometer integrated CPU and GPU and it generates a lot less heat, the 360 only uses one big fan now and is super quite.Jasper is now outdated since the release of this model



Only quieter if you install the disk to the hdd otherwise just as noisy playing games.
Heat wise the new xbox gets far hotter than the Jasper premium and the newer (forgot the name)Elite I had before. When I discussed the heat issue with MS they turned round to me and tried to fobb me off with the excuse that it is the summer so things do get hotter.

Unit is positioned in a well ventelated area and the heat does worry me.

Forgot to add why has this got such a hot rating???
I paid £185 on release from shopto.net or am I missing something?

Shopto have this back in stock at £184.85.

GAME are selling it for £209.99 with Mass Effect 2, Prince of Persia : The Forgotten Sands and Need for Speed : Shift.

Surely you can sell the three games for more than the £25.14 difference?

Plus collecting 2100 Game Reward points!

how is this a deal as the console is priced at £199 everywhere anyway????

2 of those games interest me Uncharted (even 2) and Last Guardian . GoW3, Halo Reach and Fable 3 interest me much more.

If you've got both, WINNER. If not love what you've got coming and stop being an immature fan boy.
