bargain. This may go scorchio

That's a very solid collection of games for a change, perhaps not the latest titles but nothing you'd be embarrassed to have. very good deal.

good deal as has 6 excellent X360 exclusives

Pack contains Forza 2 NOT Forza 3

Great deal!

Finally managed to work it out and reserve one, anyone know what the resale value of these games is ?

good deal

brilliant deal

Brilliant find, can't believe you'd actually pay an extra £20 for the games alone £159, so your basically getting a free xbox, thanks so much!!!

Some people might actually want to play some games on their xbox.

Great selection of games there, very hot deal.

Xbox virgin here :oops:

Can a hard drive be added to this after buying?

Whats the difference between the Elite version and the Arcade (apart from the hard drive?)

Yeah if you add either offer 2 or 3 they both come up at £139. I think you are right this may be a misprice, so get in quick :thumbsup:

Doesn't seem to be a misprice to me? Offer 2 comes up as 6 games + eggbox for £139, offer 3 is 3 games + eggbox for £119?

Offer 2 even states 'save up to £120'. Whenever I've seen a misprice, the actual discounted amount exceeds the promoted discount.

360 hard drives are external and just clip to any 360 console, so you can easily add one to an Arcade.

The Elite comes with a 120 GB hard drive, a wired headset and an ethernet cable that do not come with the Arcade and it's in black instead of white. The Arcade comes with internal memory that the Elite doesn't have.

That's not true mate. You can connect a hard drive to any Xbox 360.

Yes they do! ;-) You just remove the top cover and there it is...

If you only want one of the triple game packs it works out just as good - £19.97 each

So would it be better to go for one of these @ £99.99 and build it up (if needed) or just shell out for an Elite?

This is a good deal but if you're more than a casual gamer you're going to need space for saving your games and downloading DLC, demos, etc.

You'd be able to pick up a 120GB hard drive on ebay for around £40-£50 but you're also going to need a headset and possible a HDMI cable if you're linking it to a HD TV and by then it's going to come to the same price as an elite.

scroll down the special offers until you find "Offer 2 (As below) tick to add both the software packs, and then add the main console to your basket, you'll see the discount on the next screen

Special offer 2
Save up to £120 when you buy a Xbox 360 and 2 WOW software packs. To receive this offer add both items to your trolley. Offer ends 23rd July 2010.

Ultimate Bestselling Pack Xbox 360. o £79.97

more details on Gears of War 2, PGR 4 and Fable 2 Xbox 360 - 18+. o £79.97

As per another member - I was thinking about getting this and adding a hard drive.
BUT - it seems argos are now sold out for home delivery and there is no stock in Rhyl, Flint, Colwyn Bay or Llandudno

I've a little feeling that yet another Elite deal is just around the corner

It's a matter of choice, this post is the XBOX with games that makes it a good deal, if you don't want the games then you should think about extra storage.
My setup got this Xmas
XBOX Arcade + 2 free games + Wireless entertainment pack (controller + 2 free games) (Amazon for £150)
250GB hard drive unit for the XBOX (dealextreme for £45)
1 year XBOX live sub (£27)
Total cost = £222

Jeez, that's a hell of a price for the 250GB hard drive.

its allso as fake as michael jacksons nose was
can make a fake 250gb cheaper than that

Does the arcade have an HDMI out? I thought it was only the Elite that had this?

It's a fake...most likely will have a shorter life spam than an original..
