REFURBISHED, NOT PRE-OWNED. Keep on reading.

£124.99 for a refurbished Xbox 360 Slim 250GB console - These refurbished consoles come from Microsoft after being repaired, rather than cleaned up by the store's staff after being traded in by someone else. They're not usually advertised and stock can vary on a per-store basis, but it's worth asking the staff if they have any in stock. Great if you need a new console for Grand Theft Auto V coming out on Tuesday, or if you want to upgrade to a newer system knowing that the new ones aren't backwards compatible and your old phat system might give up the ghost any minute now (like me).

I know this isn't necessarily as cheap as some of the new console deals that were posted recently (like Morrisons / John Lewis that seemed to be very store specific), and that it isn't as cheap as the pre-owned online deals from GAME, but with those you're taking the risk that those could be absolutely crap condition. I should also point out that the in-store price for pre-owned consoles at GAME is currently £139.99, and was told by the staff that refurbished is usually the same price. He seemed just as surprised as me when this went through the till at £124.99!

The console I bought today came in it's original box (rather than the plain ones usually used for GAME's preowned consoles), with most of the accessories like cables still in their sealed bags. The console itself was in perfect condition apart from a bit of dust on it and the controller, and still totally silent running. Also comes with a standard 12 month warranty from GAME. Picture and receipt in comments, cheers guys.

Hey Ryan - This is refurbished (as new, from Microsoft), not pre-owned. The £110 online deal is good, but it's a complete lottery as to whether you'll get a console that's in good condition or rubbish condition. With this deal it's in perfect condition, and you could always check it yourself in store before buying.

Yeah I guess so

Great price if you can get it. These 250gb slims are fantastic consoles

And going by the comments in that deal, not a single other person found one for that price despite the deal going hot. Same with the John Lewis one, definitely wasn't national.
