Arcade bundle might be useless since GTAIV will require HDD.. Voted hot, though ;]

I've said this before on other posts - if anyone can prove that GTA4 will require the hard drive to play then feel free to post it - otherwise please don't put people off what looks like a great deal.

Depends really whether you'll have to wait until GTA4 comes out at the end of April before you get the package, or if they'll send you the console and Halo 3 now and then GTA4 when it's released

You dont need a hard drive to play GTA4 unless you want to play on Live or download the download content later.

You don't even need the hard drive to play on Live - just the memory card which comes with the arcade bundle.

Also it's highly unlikely that such a high profile Xbox 360 game will require the hard drive - it may however run better with it.

Get PC world to pricematch this and get another 10% off.

why would GTA IV require a Hard Drive? is it because the DVD drive in the X360 is too slow?

people should be thankfull that MS doesnt make any games require a Hard Drive, otherwise we'll have the same situation as the PS3; developers having manditory installs - now wouldnt that eat up your hard drive/.

# allowing a Hard Drive will only help with speeding up load times [if too slow].

Does it come with a wire for the controller or do you have to use the controller wirelessly?

HDD are not just for slow load times as you imply. How about installing patches? Recently cod4, ut3, orange box, and based on recent news perhaps RSV2 will need a patch. Also DLC, even more appropriate for 360 users since they will get DLC content. :thumbsup:

It has to be used wirelessly, although you can buy a wire for it.

HDD drive deal can be found ]here for under £30.

Definitely HDMI though there is no HDMI cable included in the package :x

Zavvi Instore today - xbox premium plus 3 games, Halo 3, A. Creed, and Lost however they were sold out of the last two listed so they allowed me to take any 2 games costing £40 each. (I took R6 Vegas 2 and Army of Two).

This cost me £210, not a bad deal at all.

heat added if i did not have an xbox i would probs get this

I've got a better deal

139.99 Arcade from shopto

34.99 amazon pre order

= 174.98

Fair point, but your deal does not include Halo 3, which Amazon does for £10 with a console purchase. If you don't want Halo 3, then the Amazon price for the arcade plus gta4 is the same as shopto. You also have the added benefit of the additional offers from Amazon such as Assassins Creed for £20 or the Wireless Entertainment pack for £25. If you cannot wait for Supersaver delivery, for the extra £5.07 to have the goods shipped First Class (and in multiple shipments), I still think the Amazon deal is one of the best around.

didnt realise u got halo3 as well!

School-boy error.
