Bought an xbox arcade from zavvi expecting to get it for £117 with my 10% discount from virgin credit card but got Halo 3 and lost odyssey free as part of a bundle and they take the 10% off from them games too even though your not paying for them!

Halo 3 £40 (£4 discount)
Lost Odyssey £45 (£4.50 discount)
XBox 360 Arcade £130 (£13 discount)

£130 - Total discount = £108.50 :-)

good deal well done

Voted Hot.

What comes with the Arcade package, do you get a memory card? is the controller wireless?

Looking for a 360 having missed the supermarket deals, this is more the price I was thinking of spending than the Asda deal anyway.

How long does it take to get a Virgin CC?

Can I assume this is in store and not on line ?

Or either as zavvi are liars probably out of stock just after you order then they ring round looking to see if stores have anything in cupboard worth selling :whistling:

Does this system have the newer/better processor in???

I have a older 360 now and its just over 3 years old and thought i might aswell update it and sell my older one.

Hot deal, well found.
If you are thinking of buying an Xbox clearly this is one hot deal....
I wonder how xmas prices are going to go....

you would think so, retail outlets do not usually have new stock laying about for long and I think pretty much all made in 2008 are the up to date chip..

what do you mean ?

very good deal this. games are worth £20 so £88.50 for an xbox 360 arcade. That is cheap. You can get a 20gb hd for less than £20 from microsoft direct now...

whats with all the good xbox deals!! Cant imagine what there gonna be like in about another month.

haha i know!! my xbox is on the way out, so im waiting for the cheapest possible deal

there not gonna get much cheaper than this kinda price....

I dunno what to do... I want a elite really as everything is black in my living room....samsung tv,stand,virgin box, dvd sound system... and a white xbox....lol

i cant seem to find this deal anywhere on zavvi's website. could anyone please direct me in the right place?

The thing with this deal is that it was staff negligence. which you can't always count on. They would usually reprice everything on the till so that you don't get discount on the original price before reduction. Some stores won't even take Virgin credit card discount any more.

get a vinyl decal?

27000 console have just been stolen in the States, I don't know this will affect the marketplace as MS have not revealed where the consoles were destined for, so maybe a word of warning, if you want one for Christmas, don't leave it to late because you know what might happen......:santa:

discussed in great detail in this deal thread: hotukdeals.com/ite…-c/ :thumbsup:

They are not going to fall any more than this. Its easily the best console on the market in terms of games support and online play, this is half the price of a wii and a third of the price of a ps3 and look at what you are getting. They have sold 20 million of them already now.

If you look at the major games retailers, game etc 3 out of the top 5 pre orders are for 360 games similar for their top selling titles. Looking on shopto website today 6 of the top 10 games sales wise were 360 with only 3 ps3 and 1 p.c title in there.

The top games have not even been released yet for chrimbo either, Gears of War 2, Fallout 3 with exclusive DLC, left for dead another console exclusive, lips, at the movies etc etc etc.

The first Gears game resulted in 2.5 million console sales, when gears of war 2 is released you will see the really big numnbers of 360 consoles being sold.

what you could do is buy a black faceplate from ebay cost you a fiver :thumbsup:

Be careful with the prices, if they've taken money off a bundle that's normal, but if they've accidentally discounted the free games as well, it's not a good per se, it's just bad till operation on their part, having worked at Virgin stores in the past I've seen it firsthand plenty of times. I would expect to pay 10% off the shelf price of the bundle and nothing extra. Anything extra is a mistake on their part.

Still a good deal, though.

iv bought console bundles twice from zavvi and only ever had 10% off the bundle and never on the games. lucky if u can get it

Deal on the 60gb console at HMV is better anyway IMO

hotukdeals.com/ite…-c/

You get to choose any game you want plus PES 2009 which you sell for £35 if you dont want it. If you factor in the value of 2 new release titles its the same sort of money as this but you are getting the 60gb HD, HD cable etc...

great deal i might be tempted to go for this:thumbsup:

Thanks, just ordered one:-D

just to let you know as you will have a 256mb memory card you will NOT be eligible for the xbox hard drive deal - MS work it out that you need to have 126mb to install their new Xbox live interface which you will have when you get the 256 mb card with the unit (all hard coded into their system via the serial number which you have to enter)

This is incorrect as i bought the arcade and went straight on and ordered the hard drive, no problems :-D

This is incorrect, i bought a new arcade 3 weeks ago and did the hard drive deal which arrived no problems at all. Only difference is if you have an arcade its £19.99 for the 20gb and 3 months live, if you have a core its £12.99 with no live.

Reported this thread to be looked at.

Not sure if credit card discount, and one particular members of staff incompetence can be listed as a deal.

Not true I have an arcade witha memory card and it was eligible for the hd upgrade. Them seem to be offering them to anyone with a core or arcade whilst the offer is running...

This is not down to one member of staff as a second person in my office has been able to get a similar offer, whereby the 10% off the games was added to the initial (£13.00)10% discount.

I say similar as he asked for different games with the bundle, at different prices to the games listed in this deal, and therefore got the deal for a slightly higher price

As for virgin credit card offer, is this not the same as a deal whereby voucher codes and such can be applied? Like with voucher codes, If you are entitled to the them the discount can be applied to make it a deal

Is it at all possible that it was the the same set off store staff making the same mistake again maybe?

I have to say this is very hit and miss...

using my virgin CC...

I was turned down in London Lpool St Zavvi for a discount off a Wii bundle (and told quite firmly it doesnt apply to consoles)

I was given a discount of a PSP bundle in Zavvi Basildon but only 10% off the total price, no extra discount given becuase of the games

I was refused discount off anything in Bromley Zavvi!

I was given a discount off a PS3 bundle in Zavvi Southend, but it was from £300 to £270, it DIDNT take into account 10% of the games

so of my 4 Zavvi CC experiences what has happened in this post has never happened to me.

It is a great deal if you can get it but i wouldnt expect it. It comes down to how they use the till, and if they scan everything at 10% discount first or input the discount at the end.
