Just ordered this for myself as i was after a new xbox (old one stopped reading discs and MS wanted 80 odd quid just to fix it)

Was browsing various sites and came across this stonking offer on Amazon.

Bayonetta and Darksiders were only released yesterday, and Amazon are basically giving them away free already!

Absolute cracking deal i think, as both games have reviewed very well indeed.

Note: the games aren't fully discounted until you get to the order confirmation page, it caught me out at first as it was listing them at full price in my basket.

I think this was £179.99 yesterday....so not that good a deal.

not sure if they had those two games in the offer then? i did see the other thread on elite bundles but that only mentioned forza3 and fifa10, just felt this offered better value as both games are brand new out

if you did get it at 180, even better, but i'm more than happy at the price i paid, especially as the best offer Game had instore was the elite + mw2 for 220! (i already have forza3 and halo odst or i may have ordered that bundle off their website)

Hot! Tempted to order this and sell my aging white console... I want Darksiders and Bayonetta so it's even better.

Should have used the Sales of Goods Act. I used it and swapped my broken PS3 for a new one

couldn't be arsed, tbh. The one i'm replacing is almost 2 years old, MS wanted me to pay for the repair since it wasn't covered by the 3 year RLOD guarantee (basically, the dvd drive is knackered, only reads game discs intermittently and i grew tired of opening and closing the disc tray for 10 minutes every time i wanted to play a game lol)

As I've already got a 120gig hard drive, i'm probably gonna sell off the one that comes with the elite, make some money back on it then.

plus, keeping the other xbox will work out ok, as i'll just use it as a sky player box in the other room

Good deal imo.

Just on the subject of faulty Xbox consoles ask to be put through the German repair centre, the call centre staff they use in India are useless. I kicked up a fuss and they redirected my call to Germany who gave me a reconditioned Xbox and will 1 year warrenty for £15.

My console was not covered by the RRoD as it was a double DVD/hard drive fault. So it pays to kick up a fuss and complain.

Nice deal, where is the £179.99 one?

i did try that, but to no avail. they wanted the full repair charge, so i thought stuff it, may as well get a new one lol

Couldn't you just install the game to the hard drive? thus bypassing the need to use the dvd drive? Neverless this is a good deal, i recently had to buy a new elite just b4 xmas. Works out better value rather than Microsoft charging £70-100 for just a refurbush of an old crap console :thumbsup: Plus the new 2009/2010 model elites are much better. So quiet and uses less power than my old elite.

Ordered. It's being delivered on Tuesday

Good deal for me as I wanted Bayonetta & Darksiders and now I can move my white console downstairs and use it on a monitor with a VGA cable instead of getting a small HDTV (which probably would have cost more - both games + screen).

good deal voted hot, got a £70 gift voucher those two games are going for £30 on ebay so got an xbox elite for approx £70. happy days! :roll:

it still needs to read the disc before it'll load from the hard drive though, which is where it's failing.

Good deal this. Especially seen as someone bought my 360 on eBay today for £169 including postage!

I would still threaten them with the sale of goods act - under 2 years use for a dvd drive is unacceptable. If you follow advice from citizens advice (or you may find info on here) then I don't see how they can get out of at least repairing it. At worst it may involve you sending a few letters and waiting a few months. I would try the shop it came from first as the contract you have is with them. The warranty is BS, the sale of goods act should be enough to get a result. I did this with a TV that blew up and eventually got my money back. You could then sell it on making your new elite an even better bargain. Don't let them get away with it!

quite a good deal. nice!

Cracking, admittly not as good as the pre xmas deals, but it isnt pre xmas anymore is it?

Cex will give £26 cash or £30 exchange each for Bayonetta and Darksiders, so thats an Elite for £147.99 if you take the cash and run!

Heated!

Do U Want To Sell Your Old Elite If So Pm Me Thanks
