Just picked up a pretty amazing deal instore for the 360 Elite.

Deal is as follows:

360 Elite Console
+
ANY 2 games (excl. rock band/guitar hero(s))
+
AV Control Centre

All for £259.99

I got Soul Calibur IV and Battlefield:Bad Company (Gold Edition) with mine.

Guys instore say deal is nationwide but the free AV control centre is this weekend only.


Was getting mine delivered from amazon tomorrow, but sending it back as this is a waaay better deal.


Oh, and I am aware of the possibility that prices may fall in the Autumn, but imo this is the best deal out there for an ELITE at this moment in time.

INSTORE ONLY

Looks good, as I just had to send my Premium back to M$ today. What's a AV Control Centre?

admittedly, not the best gadget in the world, but you can always resell it...

Meant to say, the instore display only shows a selection of 4 games in the deal, (blue dragon/halo3/ninja gaiden 2/lost odyssey), but the actual deal includes ANY two games (excl. GH3 and RB as previously mentioned).

I would presume this will also work with their ps3 bundled deals, though I didn't ask.

Jet Set Willy and Tetris.

GTA IV is always a great game. If you plan to play online then Call of Duty 4 ( I assume you could get the GOTY Edition) is outstanding.

ITS A SHAME THE avCENTRE IS WHITE AND THE ELITE IS BLACK LOL,but great deal i suppose

yeah, thought that myself lol. just gonna hide mine somewhere :-D

just a quick note on the av control centre and if its the same one i have it doesnt have HDMI connections, it uses component instead and the regular red white andd yellow connection too,seems a bit odd to include it in the deal if you cant connect it through HDMI though so i could be wrong.Good control centre though as my 360 doesnt have hdmi anyway.

Excellent deal, and as for the post by "spenspuma" looks like he missed the boat. the next gen has already happened so sell your PS1 and get a 360 Elite, Fanboys trying to ruin a post on a deals site just don't work, haven't you worked that out yet ?..

EDIT: Thanks mods for removing silly comments.....

Ta buddy. Yeah, I was thinking GTA 4, and online shoot-em-ups are always good. I havent got a console yet, yet have already picked up a cheap game or two, like Bioshock! Bit out of touch with new releases though..

I was think HL2, but I guess that's budget now..

Cheers.

Just had a look for GOW2, and seen it's not released until Nov. Shame that!

COD4 without a doubt, then anything from Gears of War, Bioshock, Forza 2, Assasins Creed, Halo 3 ,Tomb Raider & a host of others around £10 (I basically buy the older games after the price drop)
sports = Tiger woods, Fifa, Fight Night 3, Virtua Fighter 5 ....

GTA4 and COD4!!!

There are better games like Halo 3, Gears of War, Lost Odessey but they are all cheap so your better off with the 2 full priced games. ;-) imo

Gears of War & COD4 most impressive games on the 360 IMO

My faves are: Gears Of War,Call Of Duty 4,PGR 4 and Soul Calibur 4.

Lego Indiana Jones,Unreal Tournament 3 and Forza Motorsport 2 are all very good as well.

Thanks for all the responses on the games guys. The votes are in.

This is a neat deal eh? I think I may actually purchase one finally! Seeing I still have HMV vouchers from xmas to spend.

Pretty much everywhere is trying to get rid of those AV centres now because of its lack of HDMI and the 360 deciding to include it half way through the system's life cycle (This AV centre was designed [or at least marketed] as a 360 companion).
Still, this is a really good deal, and even without the centre thrown in its still around £20 cheaper than you'll see this kind of deal anywhere else! I'd say if you're after an Elite; this deal is a no brainer! Voted hot!

Really dude? ....REALLY!? :thinking:

As for which games? Definately Gears of War and Assassins Creed! (The latter being a quickly forgotten about awesome platforming adventurer!)

I agree with you totally on this one, although....

Some of the "xbox originals" won't work through hdmi, so the AV centre is handy as a simple switch, plus i can run various other sources through it so it's not a total waste of plastic. For me, at least.

Oh, don't get me wrong - I wasn't trying to pooh pooh the freebie or anything like that, just trying to show why its in there for those who said its an odd choice. You seriously can't complain about something like this thrown in, especially if you suffer from a TV with only one Component/AV port.

All Xbox 360s manufactured since May have a Lite-On drive that's unflashable (at the moment), so be aware of that if you're buying one to mod.

Ok, don't get your hopes up guys.. I just phoned 3 HMV stores, not ONE of them know about this deal. None of them even know about the 'AV control center' (most of the staff have not even heard about it).

As for the games, It's 2 free from a choice of the following 4: Halo, Ninja Gaidan, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon.

Price similar, although I think he said £264.00

So, not Nationwide, and not so hot eh?

Was that close to getting one too. Damn.

gta iv is , in my opinion, absolute rubbish

played it offline for an hour or two and it was by far one of the most boring gaming experiences I have ever had...maybe I am missing something but getting some new clothes, going on a date etc didn't exactly thrill me.... not put in back in the 360 since

Friends of mine assure me its very good online but I simply have no inclination to darken my 360 tray with it ever again!

COD4 is a truly great game..

Rainbow Six Vegas is top notch too as is RSV2 and Gears of War

Burnout Paradise is a good laff

I thought there were lots of port issues with the PS3? Like Half Life 2 for instance (which is a game I would really like). It would be useful if there was a comparison site, like there is for DVD's, only with consoles. ;-)

Also, I don't know why this is getting hotter, when the deal doesnt appear to exist nationwide as claimed on the front page. It's mighty disappointing. :-(

Don't let this deteriorate into a PS3 vs xbox thread - removed posts.
Keep it on topic please.
