Here is the voucher from today's newspaper:

Not bad if you don't want the red one although the littlewoods deal for elite was a super deal if you could get the voucher to work and keep the discount.

I like many others though want the red one for Jasper chipset hoping that this machine is a lot quieter than the older elites zep and falcon ones I have both and they are loud and not that reliable.

Pity BB are not selling the limited ed at the price you mention with the other included extras in this deal.

+1. Think these are going to be old stock for what you are paying for them which is a shame as it would be a very good deal if they were new stock.

You can change the controls - one possible scheme is exactly like the gamecube one.
There's been a free downloadable demo on the marketplace for ages, you should've tried that out first and saved your money...

My flatmate bought one, expected it to arrive today but it hasn't yet. I would say with 99% certainty that it will be Jasper - but I'll check when it gets here!

looks a good un - hot

none of my 5 xbox 360's are Silent and 1 premium has a gfx card problem out of warranty and one elite has crashing locking up issues out of warranty (dunno about one of the other black elites I have as I only bought it for the 120 hd and a £40 game chucked in and as a spare 360 as my son's 360 looked like it was about to go POP it still might.

So I am hoping that the red elite will be quieter and no cheap whiny fan noises

It's pronounced "l337".... not "elite"....

Link please - Ive not read any reports about 360 reliabilty since over a year ago. If you don't have a link that includes Jasper why post?

I very much doubt no one but MS will know Jasper failure rates and as they have only been out since September I doubt their failure rates will currently be running at 1 in 10.

I have 3 360's - The first one (pre-falcon) had red ringed but its was repaired by MS. The two other Falcons have been fine. The best thing MS did was allow the caching of games to hdd's. My main machine does'nt seem half as tasked since the games run from hdd rather than from DVD.

According to who and on the basis of what size of sample?

Probably someone like [url]www.PS3isGod[/url]. com. :roll: :lol:

Jasper hasn't been out long enough or in numbers enough for anyone but a propagnadising fanboy outlet to try and make that kind of claim.

In fact the out-going Falcon mobo version (especially the final 3rd revision model) is as reliable as anything out there.

I think the 360 has some serious overheating problems judging by the fan noise. Keep well ventilated and don't have it switched on 24/7 you lazy fat a***d beached whales got to the gym and let the poor thing cool off!!!

or just buy yourself one of these guys!

Then your 360 may, just may, be as reliable as PS3.... Just a shame you still wont be able to play Killzone 2.... :-D

I'll let you know. My red one should be delivered tomorrow. It's to replace an old 20Gb premium bought on launch day, which has already RROD and been repaired and has got even noisier in the last few months. I sense the end is nigh. As long as it holds on long enough to transfer profile onto the red Jasper Elite.....

Still much prefer my 360 to my PS3 though, regardless of the reliability.

i did try the demo, you can't walk and shoot or walk and use the knife, doesn't matter which control setup you select. i only paid £25 so no great loss, i'll still play it but it could be better.

Honestly guys, just wait and get a Jasper chipset one.

My Falcon died on me after only 9 months light use, so i sent it back and bought a new one (Jasper).

the difference in heat coming out the back is unreal, plus the thing uses less power which is a bonus.

4 of the 360's cost over £300 as they are older

edit or at least £249 for 2 of them and £319 for the first elite when they were first released

PEOPLE DO NOT GET THE BLACK ELITES. THEY ARE GOING TO BE A DISCONTINUED LINE SOON. AND THEY ARE THE OLD MOTHERBOARD WHICH GETS RROD.

IF YOU ARE SPENDING THIS MUCH WAIT FOR THE [COLOR="Red"]RED [/COLOR]RESIDENT EVIL ELITE BUNDLE. THATS A JASPER.

Sorry for typing in caps, but if this helps people the caps were well worth it.

I got a jasper arcade from Blockbusters at xmas. It's no quieter than my previous zepher with the quieter drive all have now, but it should be more reliable. I might save something due to it's lower power use though.

i pre ordered res evil 5 last august with a game voucher, like i said i'll still play it but the controls are rubbish, everyone i know says the same. never played number 4.

hopefully controls just seem a little buggy to me as been years since I played a res evil game last time was on on ps1 I think.

I only really wanted the red elite if it's jasper so game is a bonus of sorts

That's better.
Caps just pi$$ people off, we can all (or most of us anyways) read without being shouted at, thank you very much.

Well the red ones are reported to be Jaspers but the rest of your comment is out-dated & just not true.

My late Falcon Elite (ie the only sort of black Elite everyone would be able to get right now) runs very very cool (even after hours of gaming).
You can feel it at the back, there's very very little heat in the air coming out the back.

Same as with my late Falcon 60gb Pro.

The mobo which was the problem was the very first 90nm CPU & GPU Xenon mobo and the Zephyr
(the 1st HDMI mobo, but still with a 90nm CPU & GPU....despite better heat-sinking )
which came after it.

Claims that the Falcon 65nm CPU (but 80nm GPU & DRAM) is just as unreliable as the early versions are simply not true.

Falcon went through 3 (minor) revisions and the last one saw the Falcon Xbox as reliable as anything out there,
Perfection is unobtainium of course so there'll always be someone claiming they had a lemon but neverthelss Falcon is a safe buy.

Having said that I'm swapping mine out for a Jasper, nothing to do with RROD but everything to do with lower power consumption.

(the reason why Jaspers are no quieter is that they take the CPU temp (nothing to do with the GPU) to operate the fans.
As the Falcon is also a 65nm CPU there is no reason why things would change, the DVD drive is identical after-all.
The big deal in reducing noise is to save your games to the HDD and play them from there.
Then the machine is to all intents and purposes silent.)
