Not sure if this is the same offer console for £249, mega pack for £69.99, and 1 free game???? Doesn't sound that hot to me, maybe the website will be updated over night to catch up with the store promotion ...

I originally bought my 360 last year with a Megapak from Argos (probably same one that will be on offer tomorrow).
A bit of a waste of money - the steering wheel is OK but low quality, the controller is fine but not as good as the official & the other bits weren't of use to me, although I did sell the bits separate for £30 after finding it was all a bit rubbish!

Isn't the new premium still available from shopto.net for £199.99? i got mine there last week.

And i'm sure any game can be picked up for less than £50 so it doesn't seem that great a deal to me sorry.

It's the 360 Pro, Mega pack (steering wheel & pedals, extra pad and a faceplate) Halo 3 and any other game (though not sure what the exact selection is as website is badly laid out! - could be a choice of 5 budget titles or any of the full list.

So it's approx £380 -£400 worth for £250

"Buy the Xbox 360 full system (567/9223) and get the Xbox 360 mega pack (568/0731), the Halo 3 game (568/4665) and any other game from the list below for free. To receive this offer add 4 items to trolley. Offer ends 6th November 2007."

Works out at 250 for the 360, mega pack and 1 game (Virtual Tennis), but as soon as I add Halo 3 it shoots up to 370quid!

But the deal says you have to add all 4 items to get the price.

it has to be Forza 2 at the minute, it says this deal is from tomorrow.

Thats what it was for me when playing about, it seems to be changing though. Very Strange!!

anyone know if these are the new pro ones?

The website is throwing up some strange prices at the moment - I guess you'll get a manager's overide in store!

I think you would be better off to use either woolies or Shop-to.net for the xbox 360 V.2 consoles :thumbsup:

Wish I had the money!

do woolies have the hdmi console now? will check it out if i get a chance, want to pick one up with an hdmi port but not the elite, that's a bit out of my budget

according to what people have been saying yeah they are selling them but before you part with your cash ask then to check the box :thumbsup:

2 weeks ago i went into HMV in Bishopsgate and asked and was told they sell the premium console with the HDMI port but there console deals where ****** :x

You can view before you buy at Argos, so ask to see console box before you buy (if collecting from store).

anyone actually tried this yet, i would like it with pro evo 2008 and halo but online the price is 370 somthing,

In the leaflet it says console, the mega pack and ONE game for £249 but if you try this online that doesn't work either.....

It does,

Try: Console, Mega pack and Call of Duty 2. - £249.95

I have just got the xbox unit (the HDMI version) + megapack + Halo 3 + pro Evo 2008 for £249 from Argos in Watford (the one in the Harlequin centre). Apparently the deal was for Halo 3 + one other game (from a selection of 6 not very new games), but I pointed out to the salesman that the big poster at the store showed Pro Evo 2008 as part of this deal, so he agreed to give me this game instead, together with Halo 3.

Quite chuffed with this deal really

By the way, before buying, the salesman was happy to get the xbox and we even opened it to make sure it has the HDMI connection.

No need to open the box to check for HDMI, the box on the back at the bottom has the HDMI logo on it.

i carnt get this deal to work online

damn, may actually have to stop off after work and pick one up

i can't get this deal to work online



It won't - the store will override it. just reserve all the items for store pickup and let them know that you are after a package deal before you pay for it.

If you don't want the megapack you can always take it back without the receipt and say it's an unwanted gift that you haven't opened. Then you will get store credit for the price the megapack is, but don't say its faulty as it will be a waste of a perfectly good product as Argos will not be able to resell it.

Yes we saw the HDMI logo, but it was actually the salesman who suggested we double check on the console itself, so I said fine! :thumbsup:

Lot :0734
Team: FDOU
Manuf date: 20/8/2007

Thanks to the OP, heat and rep left

Do you happen to know if it has the Falcon chipset?

nadnerb

Do you happen to know if it has the Falcon chipset?



so far I believe this has only appeared in Halo3 consoles, and even then only some - not across the board

nadnerb

Do you happen to know if it has the Falcon chipset?




I think its the old 90nm chipset (but dont quote me on this), looking underneath i can see the copper heat sink pipe. I think this is what you are referring to nadnerb? Im sure the newer versions dont have this pipe, but i could (and probably am) be wrong

does it state "zephyr" at all on the barcode sticker ? (or even on the console) :?

just ordered the console, mega pack and PGR4 for £249 for in store pickup.

looks like it is going through ok

No sorry it doesnt, but going on what i have read on the Xbox forums if you have the copper heat sink pipe you have a Zephyr. The newer 65nm chipsets dont have the copper heatsink pipe.

Hi, thanks for your reply, I think the better way to tell is the "inductor" test,
thought you still had a copper "pipe" in the falcons...:santa:

Yeah, I think that's right. (pipe vs no pipe)

I'll think I'll stop by my local Argos tomorrow and ask if they know what 360's they have.

just picked up a console with halo 3, stranglehold and the mega pack for 249.50. Its a FDOU lot 734. havent opened it up yet. Bargain! Thanks!
