four green lights with this one!;-)

wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Woah now thats a deal

I paid £180 for just the core last year and had to buy all the extra stuff -- doesnt make the premium as appealing now

Is the arcade the premium with a few live games thrown in or the other one with no HDD in it?

worto.

imagine its both mate!:thumbsup:

All Arcades are the more reliable ones aren't they? That's what I thought anyway.

excellent deal.. i've voided the warranty on my 9 month old 360, and now it's got the 3rrod .. i'm gonna try a few fixes, but this may well be a workable solution ... sell the games, psu, memory card and controller on ebay and it should work out fairly reasonable for a swap out...

Gamestation are very good on deals normally - although I would say this is an exceptional deal.

Perhaps a general Xbox 360 Arcade price reduction from Microsoft is on the cards, and Gamestation are first on the bandwagon?

Be aware that it doesn't come with a hard drive (but does come with a memory card with less storage). However, if upfront cost is an issue, I would say that this bundle is a great deal. You can worry about the hard drive when he runs out of storage space later (you can buy them for £60 upwards).

Hope this helps.

just back got this deal from pc world on a price match plus 10% off the difference lol with the saving got the rocker chair on a price match lol lol:santa:

This is one of those real absolute bargains...voted Hot, if you want one get this and add a hard drive later if you wish.
Well spotted

Dont forget to grab one of these if you want the xbox 360 arcade to output HD.

I don't think you need one of these do you. The system has a HMDI port do you can use a normal HDMI cable.

The arcade has no hard drive so you can't download demos or movies from the market place..

BUT YOU CAN play every game on it

From Feb £169.99 will be the standard price for this unit..

but with the extra pad and forza and viva its great for any little johnnies out there..

It doesnt come with a hd cable but ANY standard HDMI cable or the cheap component already listed in this thread is fine..

ARCADEs are all the new FALCONS now, Check the box for a 173w power supply to be sure..

Hard drives are coming down in Feb also so you'll be able to buy a chepa hard drive if you need it..

Another note it doesnt come with a headset so if your going to play on live and you want voice comms tescos sell a cheap headset

Most Arcades are BENQ drives if anyone cares

How do you know from Feb that the Arcade price will be reduced to £169.99?

Does this mean the premium will be £200 ish officially and the Elite £250 perhaps?

By the way how long will the memory card last for game saves?

I.e can it hold 10 game saves at once or will the hardrive be required?

Do some games require a hardrive to play from the start? I am thinking perhaps some games when you go online.

I can't tell, but you'll see an unofficial price drop in Jan from all key xbox 360 PARTNERS

£30 across the board

so £229.99 Premium and £269.99 Elite officially unofficially ;-) with about £55 margin in both.

Memory Card will last ages games take little memory up for saves so long as you don't save picture replay type saves..

10 games should be fine

i THINK MAYBE 1 OR 2 GAMES REQUIRE hdd from the start they are rare and normally FOOTBALL MANAGER i think

Most Arcades are BENQ drives if anyone cares


Is that a good thing??:thinking:

The Benq drives are the quietest drives available...

I have got two 360's (Including a 65nm Falcon) and both have very noisy Hitachi drives.

How much would you get if you sold forza, pinata and the extra controller back to Gamestation?

Just wondering as I need to pick up a replacement console for over christmas, as mine is being sent away for repair.

Just got back from the Canterbury store - this bundle was more expensive at £199.99. The £149 is available instore though. The £169.99 online deal is the best one though IMHO so I've just ordered it - don't forget 2% cashback at Quidco!

a wee bit o rep widnae go a miss! lol:thumbsup:

i have one for myself i think it is the same as the old core system just rebranded the only problem was the lack of hard disk , this means you will not be able to play the old x box games but this can be purchased for £55-£70 for a 20gig or £120 for a 120gig so bear this in mind when buying one it may push up the overall price if you want to play the old x box games apart from that it is a xbox 360 the same as the rest (by the way the hard disk just clips on top so easy to add at a later date) hope this helps.

Mine has a 203w too, was a bit miffed when I got back from PC World. It's still a Falcon though, 0736 FDOU 2007-09-06. Didn't think it was going to be a Falcon as it's quite an early one for the Arcade, but luckily it was.
