Found 22nd Oct 2007
on friday i was playing on my 360 it froze twice, it hardly ever froze before hand and now just shows the three red lights :-(
i bought it in january @ game instore and am going to take it back next week, and was wondering if people knew if they have the pro's in yet and would they give me a pro? or would it be possible to upgrade to an elite?and if so what would be the best way of doing so? get a pro or premium and then walk back in and exchange it plus some cash for an elite?
any comments appreciated thanks.

I think they may have the pro in,as other places have started getting them in stock

yeah but you have to pay £50, and you can do it for ures but have to take your receipt, and they should do it

so do u think paying an extra 50 is worth it? i like the idea of a black one would match the telly i am gunna get. the only things different to the new pro's are that it comes with a hdmi cable and 120gig hd?
is it also true it is even less likely to get an elite falcon than a pro one? thanks liam

I would pay extra £50 to upgrade to a elite.
I think the Pros have more chance of having the falcon chip as they are newer.

What are the Pro's? Are they better than the Elite's?

No, a Pro is just the version 2 premium, white, 20gb harddrive but with a hdmi port BUT is not supplied with a hdmi cable...

i want to upgrade and get an elite - just need to find a buyer for the premium.

What was it that worked for you Sadie - promises of revealing photos wasn't it?

Lol :giggle: Yeah I had offers of over £500 but felt too guilty so put it in my local adtrader...

Well you see, I feel neither guilt nor shame, however I doubt the same tactics will work for me!

You don't know until you try... Maybe give us a wee preview of the pics...

:giggle:

Which would you prefer?

A shot of the controller, or the whole box?......

LOL :lol:

The whole box!!
