To the OP, is this all stores and is it starting tomorrow (Monday)?

Thanks!

Yeah, wasn't it starting today?

Now if only the useless gits at Mirosh*te would make PGR2 backwards compatible, I could finally get rid of my old Xbox!

Popped in to Morrisons (Erith) this morning hoping to pick up Halo 2. After a lot of searching I did find a rack with 3 or 4 xbox games for £1 - but not Halo 2. Picked up Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2004. Can't even remember what the others were. Wondering if maybe that's all they had or if the staff nabbed all the good ones before they opened to the public.

Sounds like staff nabbing to me. Check out your local Game for lots of brand new 2nd hand bargains!

As of the last update PGR2 is backwards compatible, although the compatibility list for the UK hasn't been updated since April 2007. :?

Checked 2 large local morrisons, both had a couple of old football manager and Tiger Woods games for £1, but nothing else. Asked the staff and they said all Xbox games had been £2.99 for a while, so anything half decent went ages ago. Bit of a waste of time really, sorry.

the UK gets the same update as the US, but sometimes some games on the US list don't work in the UK due to differences in the games (e.g. MS might only fix the US version). PGR2 should be fine in the UK.
Also the bods that look after the UK Xbox site take aaaaaages to update their pages.

Had a look in glasgow, very few xbox titles, and none at £1.
A few at £2.99 including football manager 2004.

None in pontefract but they had pc games at a quid

thank you

They would have been £1, just check at the till. Same in my 2 locals - even staff on CD counter didn't know till they rang it through. Hence I don't think this is a case of staff nabbing best stuff, they just haven't got anthing decent left anyway - if I saw Halo 2 at £2.99 I'd of snapped it up immidiately ages ago.

Hubby at Morrisons now have asked if can find Halo 2 for you. Will let you know when he gets back.

Holyhead Road, Coventry store had a bunch of Halo 2 this morning - I took one, along with some reasonable games:

Robotech Invasion
NBA 2k6 (BARGAIN!!!!)
Raze's Hell
The Sims, Bustin Out
Goldeneye Rogue Agent
Everything or Nothing

Pleased as punch

The Binley store in Coventry had nothing but Football and Golf.

Gonna be a bit hit and miss what games are available over Monday and Tuesday as deliveries for games don't usually come till mid week in time for Friday (which is the release day for new games).

After checking what we should have on sale have seen that the following games are now £1
Splinter Cell "Chaos Theory",
Halo,
Halo 2,
GTA San Andreas,
FIFA 2005
FIFA 2004
Tiger Woods Golf 2005
Tiger Woods Golf 2004
True Crime 2 "New York City"
XIII
Matrix "Path of Neo"
Pychonauts
Counter Strike
Ford Mustang Racing

There's others , but I can't remember off top of my head...!

Offers usually last for four weeks although a lot off offers in that department end on 24th August.

Ok - How do these work on a 360 can i just put them in and start playing??

The list of backwards compatible games suggests that I require an emulator but i'm not sure how to do this - does this require a hard drive (i only have a 512mb memory stick)????

Quick answers would be much appreciated, will be off to morrisons in about 15mins to buy some nappies!!!

You'll need a hard drive and an internet connection to play them.

cheers guys, may just buy some for throwing at the cats!

Err...the Xbox 1 had a hard drive, right?
Games for the original Xbox were developed with this in mind.
So you'll need a hard drive on your 360 in order to play Xbox 1 games properly.
Not such a stupid reason after all...

Yeah, theres no "stupid reason", the Xbox runs data through the HDD, if its not there then XB games wont work on a 360. If you insert a game disc and load it you will be greeted by a screen that either says you need to download an update which it will then do automatically, or that it is not supported. Some games wont work well with VGA cables, PGR2 being one of them, but i played online for three hours the other day on my TV with no problems.

In my opinion when you look aht the price difference between the two, consider that you will probably have to buy some sort of storage device to save game data anyway (such as a memory card) why not just buy the Premium pack, it works out allot better value for money.

You can get the emulation 3 ways either..

Update through Xbox Live®.
Burn a DVD or CD.
Order a disc by mail from Xbox.com.

But you will need a Hard Drive unfortunately.

Yep, this works, the lad on the till looked right spooked!:giggle:

Mine has FarCry Instincts, Future Tactics, CounterStrike and loads of Fifa games.

[COLOR="Red"]Would be happy to nab someone a copy of CounterStrike, Future Tactics or FarCry to swap for Halo 2/GTA SA please.[/COLOR]
