Brand new with 12 month argos warranty, doesn't let me do the clicky link

3 months gold xbox live too

Even though I got one a couple of months ago for £29.99 instore at Argos, this is still a good deal.

If you open up the case, you can use it in a new slim too as it is ready formatted

Heat added

I think I might get this myself, 20GB bit small for me.

Damn! Paid £55 for this just before xmas.

You can open the old hard drive caddy and place the hard drive into the new hard drive caddy that fits into the new console. It can be bought for £4 or so. I saw a deal ealier for one.

That's rubbish, no wifi, no wireless headphones and a puny 60Gb HDD. This is all stuff that you will want to upgrade one day and when you do it will be practically worthless.

I love the description "starter pack", like you can build on it, you can't, you can only replace it, so do yourselves a favour and buy the proper kit in the first place, it'll be cheaper in the long run.

Make your own 250GB for £28.55 (Scan).

Requires the ability to use basic DOS.

Read up on 'HDDHackR' if you wanna know more.

60GB is ample space and what is the problem with the headphones? They plug into the controller anyway, so its not like you have wires trailing across the floor, unless you're Mr Tickle

This is from the official xbox forum and "Mister Gwyther" is a Microsoft employee:

Modifying or tampering with the older model HDDs to fit in the new Slim console is against the Terms of Use you agree to when using Xbox LIVE. Doing so can lead to account suspensions or console bans.

so no official line from MS then... i'd ignore it they can't prove anything

How is it wrong in any way? Seems an odd line for MS to take

Easy, the RRP on slim HD's is about £80, you modding your old HD for £3 is obviously going to chew their "potential" profit.

I say potential because if microsoft expected everyone to pay £80 for a harddrive for the slim tons of people probably wouldn't bother. Microsoft haven't even bothered reacting to old model unofficial harddrives, never mind people using official drives in slim 360's.

Oh, I totally get the MS view, but I'm adding a new HDD as I am entitled to do so. If they didn't want me to, then why put an easily-accessible slot there? Fools! At least I bought the 60GB official (if old) one. I could have bought a much bigger 3rd party for less *shakes head*
