Was going to vote cold because this is essentially a glorified 20gb console for more than a 60gb one costs.
Ended up voting warm because im sure there's people who'd prefer this version/colour and it's not a huge deal to just replace the hdd anyway.
Plus it seems a fair price for a special edition console

Was umming and arring about posting this, but like you said for a limited edition 360 it seems like a good price, plus the special edition extras

Good if you really NEED to be different, most kids do so I'd say its hot.

Its a older model so would prob find more problems with this than newer ones.

Would still be covered by the Microsoft warranty if you did have any problems

Halo xbox pack , which doesnt come with Halo game

I think the console looks a bit tasty but I would spend my money on a newer model, in fact i did and bought one of the Resi evil red consoles because Game gave me a great trade-in deal on my ancient noisy 360.

The was a guy on here the other week selling just the console as it had RROD several times. so old stuff but still worth a punt if you like this sort of thing.

Just waiting for my Xbox to die now, its stressful enough turning it on every time,let alone paying COD5 against some shirty American kid, why are they so aggresive?? does anyone else find they are the worst for shouting racist comments etc, cant believe what i hear sometimes

I assumed it at least had the game bundled?!? Given that its selling for £10 in a lot of places thats just plain daft

lol, totally agree, i made the mistake of playing a quick game the other day and my mum came round (to cook me dinner!! arent mums the best!), didnt mute the players & she couldnt believe what they were saying:oops:

Rubbish deal, they can call this a special editon as much as they like but it has no added value because of that. It's an old model themed around what is now an old game with a 20Gb hard drive that costs more than a new model with a 60Gb hard drive. One for the mug punters.

Cheers for your input:roll: dont mince your words:-D

Is it just me or does the console look hideous in that colour?

I have to admit, I was never a big fan of the design (the elite version looks quite good though) but still...

Except he is right. :roll:

The link below is to a 60GB Xbox 360 with either an extra pad and Resident Evil 5, or an HDMI cable, an extra pad and Burnout Paradise Ultimate, Trivial Pursuit, and Connect 4 Arcade. Both options are £170, the same price as the 20GB console (which is an older, less reliable model) on its own at Game.

No.1 played game on xbox live 2 years after release

I posted this deal about a month or so ago but hot from me

you buy the halo 3 themed console and you have to buy the game separate lol :roll:

Ugly, old console, with smaller HDD than the newer more reliable ones, for more money, and no games.

Got to be cold.

I couldn't agree more. While there is obviously demand for 'different' looking consoles, there are a few things that would put me off this one. Firstly, the colour doesn't fit well among other items in a HiFi stack, but then on the flip side, my 360 can't be seen anyway (probably the same for others). Secondly, it seems a bit daft to be a Halo Edition with no Halo game. Thirdly, I tend to look at my TV when playing games and not the console itself, so the design is wasted!

The Amazon deal is much better for the same cash (unless skinned Xboxes are your thing), so this is my reason for voting cold.

Besides which, you can always buy a Halo 3 skin off E-Bay and stick it on a regular 360.

warn from me - just coz its Limited Edition...

Even though it's a "special/limited edition", unless your actually collecting it to sell in 50yrs time, I see no reason why you would want to choose this over the 60GB Pro, which you'll probably get a couple of extras bundled in with as the same price.

If you really want to be different, buy a skin for it at
Your paying the same, for less and older hardware, for the sake of a paintjob? Whatever floats your boat... a deal purely for the most hardcore Halo gamers.

to mnay of these made to make it a worthy special edition,its a con and they all come with the very 1st boards made.
i would avoid like the plague and the colour is awefull.

i cant think of anyone who would have another diareha colour in thee room to match.

This was up a few months ago aswell, it didnt make sense then, and it doesnt now!

Normally I would say compare like for like, as this is probably the cheapest price for *this* xbox. BUT as others have said, you are paying more for a less reliable machine, with less hardware, and no game. It doesnt really make sense....

after suffering with 4 dead xbox 360s id never get another one unless it was free ,now using a ps3 with no problems .


if any 360 is worthy of my money its the new jasper chipset but only time will tell if that is reliable as they said that with the falcon chipset but i still seen dead ones of those on the net and did anyone see watchdog about microsoft and the dreaded scratching discs .


that was even on a later console too.

WorKid;5040632

reliable



This word belongs nowhere near threads about XBOX 360's.

I never listen to them I neveR plug the headset in, it's rubbish anyways and never works can't believe Game and other retailers charge £14.99 for a replacement they are like 99p quality from local market or those kit kat headphones that / scratch on /off/on/off .

Anyways I mute everything.

I [email protected] jumpers on there all the time send them same , then file a review with player skill / lacking.

If these Halo boxes were £120 I think I might buy 1

Yeah these came out with Halo 3 cause i got one then. I seem to remeber i managed to get this deal for the same price as the NON special edition equivilant when it first came out but this seems a little pricey for it now. it does look good though...

And yet their are still more 360's out there than PS£'s. I think that say's a lot really, if you like your hardcore gaming it's the only console out there simple as that. I'm on my third, and if this one goes t1ts up I'll get it replace and carry on :):)

well thats just stupid ,would you do that with your car i think not so why give in to microsoft .

you have to pay for xbox live £40 ish a year and while console is repair shop your loosing that money .

and it can take 2 weeks to get the console back and they dont repair yours they give you a 2nd hand refurb wot a load of tosh that is .id want a brand new console or my one repaired at least you know where its been and who has had it .

stop with the ps3 fanboying

im voting cold as i dont think its a good deal

It's not stupid, it's what you want out of your gaming. To me the 360 is the gaming platform of choice. I mean the Sony fanboy's go on and on about the cell processor and how much better the PS£ is than the 360, but have we seen any evidence of this at all to date? No, and to be honest if we haven't seen any evidence of this superiority after all this time why pay all that extra money for what is basically a glorified blue ray player, which isn’t even as good as a stand alone blue ray player costing half as much!

We all know that apart from the odd exclusive title all of the PS£, games are coded on the 360 and ported over and from what’s being said in the gaming industry lately this isn’t set to change anytime soon.

I’d just like to say, I’m not a 360 fanboy. I’m just tired of deluded PS£ owners ranting on inanely about how much better the PS£ is than the 360, when simple fact is it isn’t! and in reality if you like your gaming, especially online gaming there’s only one console worth having period. Actually thinking about it, if that makes me a 360 fanboy then sod it I am :):)

I hear you! Just pushing the one button gives me sweats. I had a RROD on my original. Bought an Elite whilst waiting for that repair then the Elite RROD, had it back five days and it Overheated (two red LEDs). Given the short time they replaced the console for free. Now I'm a gibbering nervous wreck in anticipation of my next scheduled UPS collection!
