    Xbox 360

    Santa bought a pre-owned xbox 360 4gb for my 7 year old son for xmas from Game (£64.99) and within 2 weeks it had the 'ring of death'. I sent it back to be fixed and they said they would send me another one which arrived yeaterday. After 20 mins of play....it froze!! And now has 3/4 of the ring in red lights!! My son is devastated and I am fuming!

    Will obviously try and get a refund now and will have to buy him a new one (not pre-owned).
    Does anyone know of any deals at mo....he won't sae movies and music etc on it so just a cheap one but does have to be new. Found a 4gb for £145 at lockbuster or £155 at Tesco with game.....is that gonna be the cheapest I'm gona get do u know??

    Would be sooo grateful xx

    Should be in deal requests.

    Are you looking for a slim, elite, or arcade(the white one)?

    The one you got from Game I'm guessing is the old white one... completely useless piece of kit.

    Hey guys, yh been a while....been so busy lately...not sure what doing tho lol
    I'm good ta, hows u 2??

    4gb do you mean a 20gb?

    They are covered under a 12 month warranty with game.

    If it's not that old register it with Microsoft and get a new replacement. Less likely to die.

    If you have £220 then you can go for this.

    You can sell the kinect sensor for around £100-£110
    Sell the game for £10

    And you have a brand new slim for around £100.

    Pretty sure it's a 4gb??
    It was preowned so not sure how old but was cheap so probably OLD. Game sent a replacement and that's died too!! Don't wanna risk a preowned again tbh! Will get my money back I'm sure but really wanna go and pick a new one up from somewhere now so it's here when he gets in from school. Dunno where's the cheapest tho

    The problem with the traded in consols is that some people trade their faulty xboxs in after they have done temporary fix. They know that it only needs to pass a quick test by Game and they've got their money......

    If you were thinking of spending £155 on the Tesco one then the Zavvi one for £179 is better value..
    hotukdeals.com/dea…192

    I know its extra money though.......

    If you are after a cheap one how about a 2nd hand one from someone reliable on here?

    EDIT - Sorry Hannah - didn't realise you wanted one instore....

    If you need money off Zavvi, I have 20% off not sure what it works on though but you could try it x x

    If you're going with the Blockbuster one I would ask them why they are advertising their shop price as £139 on their website.....you never know they might have got the price wrong.

    Good news
    I recommend the Cars game and the Lego Star Wars and Indiana games - my kids loved them and you should be able to pick them up cheap 2nd hand on Ebay or even blockbuster (they do 4 games for £20)

    Typically, I left his 'cars' game in the xbox when I took it back so am waiting to hear back from them at mo. He does have an indiana and loves it so may get the second one (he got some xmas money and a £10 voucher from Game when I complained) and has Star Wars on PSP and the Wii I think.....would u say it would still be worth getting?
