Xbox 360 Premium Console 60 gig version £139.99 @ Morrisons

75
Found 14th Nov 2009Made hot 14th Nov 2009
Just popped into Morrisons and saw a Xbox 360 60 gig version for £139.99. Is this the old pro version? I have forgotten.

I will upload a pic in a min!

Couldn't see any cheaper on here. Appartrntly the Elite deals are a third more with two current games, make up your own mind.

I think this should be Nationwide.

Confirmed Locations are Leeds (Sold out in Kirstall), London, Reading, Sunderland and a few other places have this offer so far.

Pic below in comments.

Other options if you want an elite and games are

hotukdeals.com/ite…for

With COD - MW2 and Forza 3 for £199

hotukdeals.com/ite…a-3

With pure,forza 3,lego batman and fifa 10 for £199 again!

Choices Choices!!

Store specific or nationwide?

Might be worth a pop down to Morrisons!

Sorry this was in Leeds, not sure if nationwide, will edit the post.

same price in my local store (Ebbw vale)

looks like a good price to me, though the elite deal at sainsburys, with fifa, entertainment pack etc. may be better value in long run, but if just looking for the console to get and then chip or something looks spot on.

risky with all the current bans that have happened. Know 2 people that have not used there consoles for a month switched on to check and have been banned !
On the flip side - good deal for those who have been banned and looking for a basic package !

have still got an old xbox 1 (running XBMC now), the chip for that had a switch on the back so could be deactivated so if you went on xbox live it was undetectable. Cant belive that they dont do such things now.

Either way you can still use the xbox, just not online

That's becuase the 360 isn't chipped! the dvd is flashed that's all ;-)

How is this deal even hot? You may as pay an extra 60 quid and get an Elite with 2 of the newest games. this deal isnt even nationwide (checked locally)

In London, Acton too.

laze

It all depends what you want! Can you afford the extra £60? Which is nearly a third more!

Well now 4 locations, one up north, 2 down south and not sure about the other one. Reading as well now? Thats a lot of places..

Completely agree. Some of the logic used here is mental.... If you can't afford circa £200 this is a brilliant deal

Got one in Sunderland store too, only £10 more than the arcade version. Had already bought MW2 so this worked out the best deal for me.

Sounds good to me.

Maybe its because on Amazon you can get an elite with two games you could get £56 at CEX thus making it £144......for an extra 60gb £4 doesn't seem a lot.....!

That may be true, but personally I couldn't be bothered to buy an elite from Amazon, wait for it to be delivered.

Is there a CEX in every town? Park in town - £2 an hour! Then wait in a queue to sell the games.

What if the prices go down by the time you have bought it and waited for it and actually bothered to take it into town.

But is another option, I might put it in the first post?

p.s. Dont take it in the wrong way! Just trying to explain why I think its still a hot deal!!

Haha, I have had a fair few arguments about that No one ever wins!!

Never owned and xbox before or discussed them on the internet so I know very little about them. I've decided I want one to play Forza 3.

Am I better of getting this deal and then picking up Forza from eBay or whatever, or should I get the elite deal at gamestation and then sell MW2?

Its really up2 you! I would buy this then but Forza from ebay or hotukdeals.com/ite…ed-.

As I wouldn't want the hassle. But if you wanted MW2 as well then???

Don't want MW2, I am buying the console purely for Forza! Cheers for the amazon link.

Which makes this a very cautious deal, admittedly at least these stand a good chance of at least being Falcon motherboard 360s, however there are some older Premiums with HDMI that are still Zephyr boards.

If anyone was to buy an Elite now, they would guarantee a Jasper board.

Still got the 3 year warranty for RROD and E75 fault! So I wouldn't really worry so much. Mine was a Jasper board, but still got the E75 fault

I am well aware of that, just stating that if these are old stocks you have to be aware of what revisions of boards they are, there is still a chance premanufactured October 2007 that you could end up with a Zephyr board which has 90nm CPU. Its still a concern regardless of warranty, if you have a lesser chance of developing a fault and having a newer, theoretically more "reliable" 360. No one really wants to send any goods to be repaired and get a reconditioned replacement.

This is a good deal, providing you do get a falcon or jasper board. I am just amazed how much 360s have actually gone up in price in effect now they have discontinued the Premium pack. Its either shell out £149 for an Arcade (that were going as low as £100 at Sainsbury and Zavvi last year) or pay the extra £45 and get an Elite. This fills the gap nicely, albeit because of discontinued stocks.

Good point! Can't comment on what board you get, any idea how to check? So people can leave feedback?

This was on offer for 3 months now at Morrisons Gorleston i thought the elite one with extra controller and game from Amazon and Argos are far the better deal

Well its 60 quid but lets be honest your gonna buy some games for the console; And with the average game costing about 25-30 quid your still gonna be spending nearly the same amount.
