Hi there,

Not a regular poster, but felt this should be shared!

Was looking for a 2nd xbox 360, with cheap being the operative word! Found this on the Game website, it initially says its a pre-owned, which I guess it is, but it's actually a factory refurbished item, and comes with a 12 month warranty from game.

The £5.00 off voucher worked for me, so it's £94.99 delivered for the system!

I ordered at 5pm on Saturday, it arrived at 8am this morning and comes with the full arcade spec - 360, wireless controller, scart lead, power brick, and 256MB memory plus an arcade game.

What's not to love if you are looking for an inexpensive model?

For those who say you need the bigger hard drive, you do, but you can get one from Microsoft for £20 and it used to come with 3 months Gold, or there are a few available on here for £18 - £20.

Cheers
James

hard to get excited about this deal, as asda were selling the Arcade system for £99 brand new at one point.

You can also get a new system with game bundles and extra pads for 135 quid, and once again, its brand new.

Jury is out for me, havent voted hot or cold as im undecided, what does everyone else think?

Could this be Xbox Live banned?

I doubt they would sale a banned one, it will be an older model though and more susceptible to the red rings of doom! than the newer jasper models.

I dont get all this grade A grade B and refurb, repair nonsense with deals, in the old day w just called it second hand!

We brought one 2 weeks ago from Gamestation. It was a 4 month old Jasper for £99.00 ;-)

the deal at sainsburies is the best imo for £199 you get fifa 10, need for speed shift and pure / lego combo with an elite
i paid £170 as my mates mum got me 15% discount as she works there
sold fifa 10 for £30
sold nfs shift for £25
so cost me £115 or to anyone else £145 but then the harddrive you could sell for £60

Cold votes - classic, it's what gives this place a bad name!!

Look at the picture - it comes fully packages, and trust me on the face of it looks absolutely brand new, and with a 12 month warranty!!

It's not Banned from XBL - where did that come from its a refurb and it's 95 quid!

I agree that splitting and selling is a good way to go, but for some that's a lot of effort, no guarantees and remember we are only 3 and a half weeks to Christmas...

Come on people - let's see the evidence for the cool rating rather than just spoiling.

Have some heat this is not a bad deal considering if you are planning on just playing offline game's and want a 12 month warranty, however if i was playing offline i would probs buy a banned xbox and save quite a few quid.

If you are planning on playing online i would say this deal is not for you as you are going to need to buy a hard drive,headset and ethernet deal.

But that's just how i think about it.

Evidence is right here in the thread i guess, people prefer new to refurb or second hand, you dont get the same 3 year warranty with these, and the price of it isnt that far off of a new superior jasper model..

So for those reason... i'm out.

Oh let me think why you'd not want a refurb xbox, air in solder, needing xclamp, graphic freezes, if there was one item I'd not want on a refurb its an xbox 360! Its second hand, it looks new mwhahahahahahahahaaa that tickled me. This deal is freeezing over, not becasue people want to vote for any other reason than they read it and go, hmmmm that's not for me, I'd rather pay more and have a new one, as I really dont want it breaking down for the kids on xmas day hence ICEY

Good for you my friend - that sort of attitude is exactly what the corporations want...

From what I understand, and given the way new stock distribution works, there are likely to be thousands of slightly older generation models out there where the chances of them failing are probably no different than this, but hey, you go ahead and pay your £140 for them if it gives you a warm glow... ;-)

Me, I'll just head off in the knowledge I have to all intents and purposes a new console, along with a 12 month guarantee and a feeling of superiority! ...and all for £94.99
