Sent image of but has to be checked or something, also for your interest the Burton Store is undergoing a full refit to include PC World etc. All the stock is to be sold off rather than moved or stored so there will be some very cheap TV's to be had in a few weeks but again its instore and only of use to locals, I only went in looking for one of those cheap HD camcorders on this site.

Chavtastic or not, I'd rather have quiet. my current one still sounds like a jet engine.

As with all items with the price ending in .97 from PC World/Currys (DSGi Stores) it is deemed as a clearance item (as the staff member the OP spoke to suggested - albeit the wrong reason, new Xbox 360 not Forza 4).

pinkprawn, try uploading your image on a website such as "Tinypic" making sure you select the option to scale the picture for "Message Board" and copying the appropriate link to it.

An alternative to make things easier would be to quote the SKU code from the invoice/receipt - this should be a 6 digit sequence of numbers (after the series of 0s) next to the description of the item.

Fellow members can use this SKU code to call up their local store and query as to whether or not they have stock and to also do a stock search at their next nearest store.

Heat added (though I'm not sure whether you can get the console cheaper if one were to buy a bundle and then sell on some of the undesired games within it) however I would imagine (and hope) that the new Xbox 360 model coming up will dispel any change of the RROD ever occurring - I don't know the statistical RROD rate of these Elite models nonetheless it is something to consider whether or not to wait in the meantime and save up that little extra to get the new model.

Happy gaming and welcome to HUKD pinkprawn as a member,

Hot if anyone manages to get one. I would get another at this price for the bedroom !

Could the op let us have the sku, doubt there is any stock around though

it is hot price, i have this model myself. However i'd rather spend the extra £70 and get the new one. You'll end up getting it anyway, so why wait....

I paid £190 for this bundle about 2 months ago.

Dunno I think I would rather save the money as its for the bedroom anyway. I will end up getting the new model anyway though you are right on that :whistling:

The only way they sound like a jet engine is if you still have a 5 year old 20gb HDD :thumbsup:

Bit of an odd statement to make, seeing as the noise has nothing to do with the hard drive. It's a combination of the internal fans, and the DVD drive.

They quietened them down a bit with the Jaspers (the xenons and falcons were jet engined), but they are still well noisy. Compared to the new redesign which is allegedly pretty much silent apart from a very quiet dvd rom that can be silenced by installing games to HDD.

I think i manged the pic with image shack but has to be checked by a moderator prior to being shown (or so it says)

"new console" errr its the same old technology shoved into a smaller case.....or am i missing something?

Now along with the motion sensing rubbish they will release the same games but with motion controll all over again!

Sad day for gaming.

It's not the same technology otherwise it wouldn't fit and it'd still over-heat. It'll be the same spec but that's about it.

It's only sad if you buy it - which (surprise!) you don't have to.

Not really.

The new Star Wars game has a lot of potential

]Fitness Evolved looks interesting and if games like ]Sorcery come out on the 360 that'd be well good.

I'm pretty sure he is referring to the fact that if you have a decent hard drive you can just install the games and you won't hear any noise coming from the console..

No, I'm pretty sure he's not, as it's rubbish. As with the old xenons and falcons, a lot (the majority) of the noise comes from the internal fans. Even if you preinstall games, it doesn't quieten them down that much.

Just to clarify, the .97 prices in Currys are clearance prices and the 149.97 price should be available nationwide in both Currys and PC World.

The 129.97 price is due to the store in question adding additional discount of £20 hence the "managers discrection" on the receipt. This is store based and won't be in other Currys/PC World stores unless they too discount it by £20

I used to work for Currys so i hope this helps.

It's not the same tech.

There's built-in wi-fi n, touch controls, silent cooling, 5 USB ports, a much smaller & more energy efficient 45nm SoC (combo CPU & GPU unit) and it's got a much quieter DVD drive.
Plus probably the neatest set-up for Kinect, coming soon.

My current Super Elite Japser is very quiet with everything saved to hard drive, the DVD isn't as noisey as they were originally - but my old 60gb & 120gb Falcons were very quiet running off of the hard drive too.

I'm looking out for a Kinext bundle & this console later in the year.
