great deal voted hot dan!:thumbsup:

Can I just say before the ps3 zealots get here, that this is a very good price for someone who doesn't want their console to have a hi def movie player, or wireless and just WANTS TO PLAY GAMES!!! ....:whistling:

Do these have the falcon chipset and separate hdmi out?

Do these have the falcon chipset and separate hdmi out?



very likely given how old the other ones are.

the arcade i got from game had hdmi but not a falcon chip but not had any problems with it yet and its two months old if that helps

Well the Arcade SKu has HDMI as standard, so yep. It's the old Core that doesn't.

Nice price!

Anorther question:
Do these newer models run any quieter?
I have borrowed an older one and they seem fairly loud imo.

they are quieter - the drives are at least -if you find them too loud - get headphones

Dont suppose a cushion near the fan to keep the noise down when I was playing Forza2 at 3am this morning would be a good idea then :thumbsup:

What's the difference between the 360 arcade and the ordinary 360?

The difference between the arcade and the pro? Arcade doesn't have a hard disk and doesn't come with a headset.

I got my arcade from Gamestation just before Christmas for £150. I would imagine it will come down to this price again, but i guess if you really must have one now and really really like Forza it's about as good a deal as you're going to find. If you're not a fan of Forza, i would hold off because it doesn't have much resale value.

lol make that 7 in less than 2 hours

Think I,ll wait for now. Keep reading on here that a price cut is coming?
As flusteredpie pointed out, forza 2 is good, but resale isn't cos pricematch with Argos at Currys/PcWorld gets you this game for £7.

yeh the forza game is ok but not amazing but still its free with the console

I feel quite strongly that the lack of HD really limits your future potential, say if you wanted to save an expansion pack or such for a game.

I'm not really a fan of Forza 2, and it tends to come packaged alongside Viva Pinata and an additional control pad with the more expensive non-arcade deals.

I suppose if you are 100% you will not be needing to use a HD, this is fine, but I feel that the Arcade as a concept is a trap for people who don't really know what things entail. I can't recommend this deal with any sincerity I'm afraid, despite the apparently cheap price.

great price > heat + rep added :thumbsup:

#watch out for the GDC announcements this week > should be good

In itself I'd agree with you, but I know 4 people who have had an arcade (or core) and only 2 have felt the NEED to add a hard drive... of the other 2, one is a 'casual' gamer, (a couple of hours a week) and the other plays a lot, and still finds no need for a hard disk...:roll:

The arcade console has an HDMI port and is fully HD....

EDIT: OH HARD DISK. Sorry! I totally agree..

only need hard drive forn demos and vids etc - ifyou just playing game you will have tons of space

@flusteredpie
HD refers to hard drive in Jecht's reply not High Def

Yep, just noticed

Just cus it has the falcon chipset it dosnt mean its safe from the red ring of death ^^

bbc.co.uk/blo…tml

I also bought the £150 Arcade from Gamestation before Christmas then bought a 120GB drive from HK for £60. Was a cheap way of getting an almost Elite equivalent.

Not saying you're wrong in your assertion, but theres nothing in that article saying the box was a falcon chipset? Or that it was in fact the RROD; People in the comments are saying that 3 ring light appears in other situations.

I dunno...

Play.com has:

play.com/Gam…524

Xbox 360 Core Console + Forza Motorsport 2 + Viva Pinata + Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged Vol 1 + Extra Controller

£199.99 Free Delivery

So that's an extra 2 games + an extra controller + quidco for just 25quid more... well... less. So I think the play.com deal is better.

But its the core version that lacks the hdmi connection - inbuilt memory - wireless controller and arcade games

Anyone know where the cheapest place to buy a headset from, and an extra controller?

Thanks, I'll have a look.

I consider myself quite a hardcore gamer and I've got no hard drive - only a 512MB memory card. I have not even used half the space yet (and I've even downloaded a game from xbox arcade!). Unless you are downloading demo's or a lot of content; don't worry about the hard drive.
