Amazing price. Great find.

Wow, amazing price :thumbsup:

2% quidco too.

I'm in the middle of Bioshock for the PS3 - it's an amazing game and as such this is a great deal. :thumbsup:

Dont all elites come with hdmi cable as atandard?

I believe they've taken the HDMI cable out of the Elite package now, and you simply get a crappy composite cable.

Hi
I was wondering if anyone could tell me what I would need to do to this to replace my old xbox that I still use with xbmc installed in it? What are the main benefits please? I have the HD cable, all be it only getting 720p...Thanks.

hot hot hot!!

That has only just happened, and no doubt that stock has not even hit the shelves yet. So my guess is that these will come with a hdmi cable.

Morrisons are doing 60 GB X boxes for about £150. From memory i think they said it included an HDMI cable. You can get Bioshock for £15 off play.com and Amazon too. So it's a good deal, but there might be slightly better options.

Chances are these are the falcon chipset too

you wont be running XBMC on a 360
however there are programs that will allow streaming to the 360
i actually use PS3 media streamer :whistling: for this
so i can stream over media to the ps3 & 360.so just browse the PC from the console.select the file and play.
obviously there are some formats the machines can play without the software,just depends on the format.

i have a xbox 1 running xbmc at 1080i but theres really no comparison with the output of the 360/ps3

Custardy, how did you get 1080i?

im running XBMC with a component cable.
EEPROM set to NTSC
this gives me the option of 1080i in XBMC

Entertainment/Electricals deal, not computers.

Good deal, what was said earlier about HDMI cables is true. I got a x360 the other day and there was no HDMI. They are cheap as hell though these days.

such as?

I think i made that point in my post didnt I? Just get a 60GB from Morrissons and buy Bio Shock, or go on Ebay and get a copy. IMO no one needs the 120GB hard drive, IMO!

great deal :thumbsup:

But was it an elite 360 you bought?

if ithere was no cable probably means you have the new stock with new chipset

lol, for the sake of £15 I think the much better option is the elite with 120gb hard drive

Has anyone posted that you can ge tthe 60gb xbox 360 for £139.99 in Morrisons at the moment? its that price in swansea anyway. That would be a decent buy. Already got one but if anyones in swansea then thats worth getting, can't be bothered to check if its been posted as a deal! Goodnight

Just because you cant see the use of the bigger hdd, doesnt mean there isnt a need for one.

If you have a lot of games and downloaded a lot of content then you really do need a big hdd. Full games are can be as much as 7gb and arcade games are topping 1gb now and more are going that way.

It's not a playstation3. Why bother?

KIDDING! voted hot

Already got an Elite but voted hot

I don't understand why people say that a bigger hd isn't better/required.

Saving games to HD and running them from the HD is quicker & quieter. Admittedly, it would be better if you could store movies/music on the HD from your pc (rather than re-ripping your whole music collection), but bigger is always better.

Ask your Mrs.

Shivers. Are you my brother? You look like me & my sister.

Great console, great game, great deal :thumbsup:

Just ordered this and some new boxer shorts from the sale, for those long evening semi-naked gaming sessions . Has anyone got this yet, do they know if their stock has the new Jasper chip? I'm assuming since their including an HDMI cable that it doesn't come in the box and therefore will be but just wanted to make sure.

Great Deals by the way.

Guys is this a better deal than the following by GAME @ £199.99

-- Xbox 360 Elite Console with Fight Night 4 and COD 4
-- Xbox 360 Elite Console with Fight Night 4 and Tiger Woods 2010
-- Xbox 360 Elite Console with COD 4 and GTA IV

I can't decide which one to get

Bioshock and a HDMI cable are worth around £25ish. the 2 games you get at game are worth £50ish but you pay £20 extra so the deal is just as good if you ask me. depends if you like the games at GAME. If i were going for the package at game i'd go for COD4 + FN4

so there isnt an hdmi cable included in the elite anymore?

Plus is this a Jasper?

i thought elites were being discontinued so there are no jaspers. Except the resident evil red one, so i wouldn't get your hopes up.

that could be wrong though as i haven't been reading up on it in a while

i think the pro are being discontinued so only arcades and elites remain

I think it's nice to have the option either way - spend 15 more for the larger hdd if you can spare it, but if you're on a tight budget the 60gb is at least an option.
Of course, if you're on THAT tight a budget, maybe a games console shouldn't be top of your list of purchases... Heat and rep left accordingly

the 360 is a rip off, i know because ive been robbed. none of the new gen consoles are worth over £100. the handhelds should be under £10 each

I dont get why they are advertising that a HDMI cable is being added, the 360 elite comes with one in the box.. Are they adding another??

It would imply that it is either not in a box, a return from someone, or similar...

New 360 Elite SKU has no HDMI. I don't know why everybody gets their knickers in a twist about HDMI cables, they only cost a few quid if bought from the right place.

Mine has just arrived and it is the jasper, you can tell from the back of the console. It will say 12.1A next to the barcode.
