My 1st deal.

THE DEAL.

I popped into HMV Monks Cross (York) tonight to have a look at the Elite deal as posted on HUKD and was surprised to see this offer.

It was printed out on a A4 sheet of paper and stuck to one of their promo boxes.

I asked a member of staff to make sure I was understanding the deal right and it indeed I was.

There is no way of substituting PES2009 as he said it came "in the box" as a pack.

Any chart game with a value of £44.99 or less could then be added. Total price £169.99.

I did notice the Elite offer ended 30/10/08 but there was no date on this offer that I could see.


UPDATE 29/10.

SEE POST 65 FOR "PROOF" AND MORE DETAILS.

Well I just bought mine. Printed posters now all over the windows aswell as in store.

Guy who served me said it should be all stores and he had to use a promotion code that was on an official printout to get me the discount.

No Fable 2 in stock just incase you wanted it.

Offer runs while stocks last.

£23 for PES 2009 @ CEX

cex.co.uk/pro…buy

Or a £28.00 store credit instead...

not a bad deal, given my 360 is dying slowly I really have to find an uber good Elite deal (i dont really need games with it, at the moment HMV is the most tempting...)

Excellent Deal!
Will pop into my local HMV tomorrow to see if the deal is in there.
Anyway of getting evidence of the deal? i.e receipt or photo?
Voted hot & rep given.

good deal, about as good as the asda one last week - retailers must be hurting already!

pfpf;3312673

i knew this would get asked :roll:



Ha ha sorry-just asked on the off chance!
I'll stop being so lazy now and go have a look tomorrow!

Wow even better than the recent Asda deal for those that missed out. I got £25 after fees and postage for PES 2009 on ebay....When you factor in new releases are £40 on the highstreet and you can pick any game you want this would make it £105 for a 60gb which is brilliant, its cheaper than RRP on the arcade !

Fallout 3 is out on Friday, brilliant game if RPGs are your thing, Deadspace is also very good indeed....

Quite a few retailers offering these sort of deals on the 60gb with a couple of top new releases, these prices are obviously being supported by Microsoft.

Is the only difference nowadays between a premium and an elite that the elite has bigger hdd and is black?

they both have the better designed heatsink and same 65?nm cpu/graphics? and both have hdmi?

Bigger hd and colour thats it. All the models should have the same inards moving forwards.

At this sort of price I cant see why anyone would bother with an elite to be perfectly honest....

sounds like the pes 2009 bundle with which u get the new improved green pad

Voted hot. I got the deal at Asda last week.

10% student discount?

Definitely a good deal for those that missed out on the Asda deal :thumbsup:

Possible, but not unless the console comes in a PES branded box with a pic of a green pad on it!

why else would pes 2009 be included in the box? cant do that unless its a official bundle i dont think

Another xbox deal! Losing count lol. Still though very hot.

HMV don't offer student discount on hardware (in store) as iv tried it before, but they do online if you have a HMV student discount card.
Apparently they don't even give discount to staff on hardware!!!!

wow microsoft really are tryna make some lastminute.com money on their consoles! i really want a ps3 but they just so expensive and its so tempting to just run out and buy one of these for myself! arghh come on sony stop being stubborn and drop your pants, oops i mean prices!!

Nice one, better than the Asda deal for me, got a £20 voucher for HMV waiting to be spent.

PES can go to Gamestation, just need to decide on the other game :thumbsup:

I hear that Microsoft don't want to slash the price of the XBox any further and prefer to bundle in free games instead. However, does anyone know the game lineup? I'd personally prefer to wait for a Gears Of War 2 bundle or something?

Thanx

Interesting.
So if I wanted both Far Cry 2 and Fable 2, would I buy this bundle and select one of those 2 games (Say Fable 2), and then take PES 2009 to another shop and add some money on top and exchange for the other game (Far Cry 2)?
If so, which shops would do this other than Gamestation, and how much would I need to add on top?

Sainsburys were doing Fable 2 for £29.99 at the weekend they had plenty of stock at my local branch. I think the trade in on PES 2009 is £23 - £25 at Gamestation at the moment. So you could get Far Cry 2 and another fiver would get you Fable 2 if its still available at Sainsburys for that price.

Its beeen mentioned in another thread as well but the hardware wont be going any lower than this for a long time IMO. Its almost half the price of a wii and a third of the price of a ps3. MS will be losing over £50 a console at these prices but they have sold 20 million plus of them already and have had the best software attach rates out of any of the consoles. Their gamming division is finally in profit so they obviously feel they can really put the boot into sony now.

Its obvious these prices are being heavily supported by MS. We havent seen the discounted deals at Game or dixons store group yet. My bet is they are saving their hardware for the sales spike that Gears of War 2 will create but Dont expect killer GOW bundles or discounts. The First Game sold an extra 2.5 million 360 consoles on its own its not like they will need to discount on hardware or that title itself its guranteed to top of the charts for weeks.

I amazed the arcade deal on here at the moment has twice the heat of this, overall its only another £10 - £15 for the 60gb hard drive !

Just shows you how important price is now more than ever, instead of offering all these game bundle supported deals MS should just drop the official retail on the arcade to £99. 70% of all console hardware sales come at this price point they are near enough there anyway they should bite the bullet and finish the ps3 off. More and more it just looked like a lame horse that needs putting out of its misery....

moving forwards.

ARGHHH! Not here too!

Or you could just sell it on ebay, I recently sold my pro evo which was sealed for £30 on ebay.

great deal..... more likely people will get it too as the asda deal tended to be ot of stock at most stores due to fable shortages

hi can this xbox's drive be modded , ie software patched ?

I actually got the ASDA deal

GAME offered 20 for trade in for sealed PES so I wasn't really interested
sold PES for 25 pound and also sold Fable for 30 pound as I had already bought Fable from Sainsburys.
thus getting the 60GB Pack for 113 pound roughly which is a great deal as i really wanted the HDMI port.

I'd agree with that, it seems to make good business sense. Having just released a volley of high profile titles, with arguably the highest profile 360 title of all days away (Gears 2), it makes sense to try and push out as many hardware units as possible.

I'd wager they will make some money back from the 'I got the console cheap so I can afford to splash out on more games' effect. They certainly did from me at least! :whistling:

this has got to be the best xbox deal this year

23 pounds p/x for pes
25 pounds for farcry

makes 122 for a premium

this is an awesome deal

Can anyone confirm this is a Nationwide offer? I am planning on popping into the Cambridge store this Friday to get one with Fall Out 3!

Very hot deal. Better than the ASDA deal imo!!!

hot for me

Was gonna buy both Pes and Far Cry 2 yesterday but I'm now tempted to go for this deal and get another console for upstairs.
Is this a national deal and is it only available as a Pro package or is it with the Arcade and Elite consoles too ?

that is what I am trying to find out, if its nationwide it would be a fantastic deal.

Seriously hot deal... depending on which games are in the £44.99 bracket. Are we sure the new releases aren't all bumped up to £49.99 right now? ;-)

Far Cry 2 or Fallout 3 would be awesome for this bundle.

I was in HMV yesterday and apart from PES 2009, which was game of the week and £27.99, all the other new titles were £39.99 so you should be fine with Far Cry 2 of Fall Out 3 mate

I have just called the HMV in Speke, Liverpool and they state that the deal is for PES 2009 ONLY and not an extra chart game!! Anyone spoke to any other stores?

If so that would be a big bummer! I will call the Cambridge one at lunchtime and see what they say.

Just rang my local HMV in Harrogate! and they dont have this deal. Its NOT Nation wide. They were only giving PES 2008 for £169.
Looks like a long drive to york for me!!

cold cold cold sadly for most people!

I also ebay'd pes + fable, got same price for both £32.70 delivered (each)

If I want to connect up by hdmi, where's the cheapest place for the audio connector for surround sound?
