In Asda Living earlier in Broughton, Chester and they were knocking out these packages for £90+change (was something like 89p, cant remember exact amount).

Didnt get one myself as already got couple at home but seemed like a cracking deal for anyone looking for a cheap xbox, no idea if nationwide or not.

Edit - seems it is nationwide and in stock at moment in quite a few places, many stores though you need to take both the Xbox console and a copy of the game to the till to be scanned to get this price - not all POS material is up it seems

seems like a bangin deal!

There are rumours that Microsoft will reveal a slim version off the arcade just like the elite but the arcade having less memory and no wifi built in. Am guessing this is why stores are lowering the price of these arcade unites now (saw a few cheap arcade deals around the last few days).

Anyhow good deal.

Hot Hot Hot

THE GAME IS WORTH £30 so thats £60 for a arcade console

Will this be a hdmi console, also how would you tell if it's a jasper console as that's what im after as I've already went through 4 consoles up till now.

NO

They are phasing the Arcades out COMPLETELY....As in right away!

There will be a replacement for the Arcade in a few months but no more are being made.

There's a couple of ways to tell. Jaspers have a 150 Watt PSU (look at the label on the bottom of the PSU to see the Wattage) and the connector on the back of the console where the PSU plugs in is different to previous models (Google for a pic). It's also rated at 12.1 Amps on the back of the console where the bar code and serial number are. You can sometimes see that through the hole in the box (you might have to jiggle it about a bit) if they won't open one up for you. The lot number is not a 100% guarantee, but any lot number after 0834 should be a Jasper (and the lot number is on the outside of the box), as should any Arcade unit manufactured on or after November 2008. You'd have to get old stock now not to get one, but those are the ways you can check.

It would make perfect sence for them to stop producing this old design amd only produce the new style model as soon as possible for production reasons and to reduce costs :thumbsup: . I'm sure you are right and an arcade model will be released quickly. :thumbsup:

Every Xbox 360 console has HDMI since....ooohhh about 3 years ago!!!!

CEX will give you £21 cash for 2010 World cup making this effectively £69.

Bargain.

He's not guessing. It's fact that a new lower price "Arcade" replacment it coming out in a few months, no set date but before xmas. So most likely September when sales kick off for consoles in general.

£99 on their website, but without and games.

Will be getting if I see wait for a bargian HDD off ebay

hot ........and local for a change

Where did you see that?

Err, on their website?

MMmm I wonder how much stock is around and if its nationwide, will check it out tommorow.

I could have bought 5 of these instead of the pc graphics card I picked up recently... damn...

Ooooh tempting.... should I cancel my 360 S pre-order and just get this for half the price?!

I reckon the offer was buy Fifa World Cup 2010 and get Xbox 360 Arcade for £90 :P

Just realised this is in Asda Living, not normal Asda.... I'll go and check out my normal Asda tomorrow morning and report back!

If you want Wifi, HDD, Kinect Adapter, buy a slim. If not, save the money and buy this Arcade, if its actually available :roll:

Cant find this anywhere does it actually exist?

In my nearest Asda (Falmouth, not an Asda 'Living') it was £129.99

Confirmed I just went down and got one this morning. £90.29p

The price on the shelf said £149.99 had the woman on entertainment scan the arcade console and game and the price quoted is correct.

I think what has happened is they dropped the price of the arcade to £99 and didnt remove the multibuy for the game from the old price ?

They are definately not advertising it at this price in my local one.

Its August 2009 manufactured so should be a Jasper...

I take it this is balls then?

Hows that then I just got one this morning :whistling:

Its obviously nationwide at Asda livings anyway as I got one from a different store to the one mentioned.

Maybe my store didnt have the correct POS out but the price was the same.

Might be normal Asda as well these deals often are there is no point just ringing up, at best they will just walk over to the entertainment section and check the price on the shelf (which at my store was wrong showed £155) if you are lucky. The women who served me was taking calls doing the same for other items whilst I was there !

Ringing up is pointless IMO they either cant be bothered and say there is no stock, or they never actually scan the times properly to check the price.

Just brought one from Asda (not a Living store)

Shelf price £155

Scan price £90.29.

Thanks OP

I got one this morning as well from asda, brierley hill!!

Is this a better deal than getting one from argos at a higher price but with one of the special offers?

And lets be honest the next "budget edition" arcade equivalent new 360 will be about £140 I reckon.
I have a ps3 and I wouldnt bother with xbox live anyway, I know there are some install problems with games like forza 3 having a load more content if you have a hdd, but a cheap hdd is easy enough to find anyway.

I think I might go and get one of these then i can finally play fable, halo, gears, project gotham, forza, alan wake etc etc. I might trade in the game at cex as i dont usually play football games, but then again I do quite like them when i have tried them.

You don't need a hdd you can use ANY USB pen drives give up to 32 gb storage - more than enough space for most people even if you are installing games whilst you play them for no load time or noise !

I just sold the game for 25 quid on eBay so the console is basically 70 quid !

Stupid good value for money you can pick up gears 1 and 2 for around a tenner used fable 2 with all the dlc for 8 quid new halo 3 for a fiver so many great exculsive games you could have those and the console for less than 100 quid. I also recommend Forza 3, Dead Rising, the first Lost Planet game,PGR,Lost Odssesey (if you like RPG) all exclusives. There are a few really good exclusive live games as well, Toy Soldiers, Trials and Shadow Complex being standouts all available for around a fiver recently.

Its half the price of the wii and 10 times better and the rest this is a silly good deal.

Spoke to a member of staff on the phone and he quoted £155 for the bundle.

Going down tonight to the Beckton store and trying my luck.

So what is this deal, a pricing error?
Also is it nationwide?

Its obviously nationwide. As for pricing error no idea - its probably just the staff not actioning the price change.

Dont believe anything they tell you on the phone, they will be lazy and lie and say its out of stock or just read the price of the label on the shelf - its been proved at a couple of Asda Livings and normal Asda stores the price label is wrong and it is the price nationwide.

Ask if its in stock and for them to scan the item in from of you. Game and console have to be scanned for the multi buy.

I bought one 20mins ago! Thanks very much to the OP. The shelf price was £155, but when they scanned
an Arcade and the game separately it came through at £90.29. Great deal!!!:thumbsup:

NB: Arcaded alone was £99, the Arcade with Forza game was £105.

Arcade with Forza 3 was 105,
Arcade on it's own was 99
Arcade + Fifa 10 was 138.99 or thereabouts...:?

Thanks OP! This worked in ASDA in Llanelli (not the Living). Like others have said, you need to scan both the console and the game to get the multisave.

Got an Arcade on its own for £99 from Rochdale Asda, with Forza 3 its £105... not quite £90 but still great
