    I just had a look on the GAME website and have noticed that they do not do the bundle that my Dad got. He got the one with HALO, Midtown Madness 3 and the 2 month XBox live trial. They now do XBox's with different games for £150. It's just a console with another game. The games vary from: HALO, GTA Double Pack, PGR2 and Timesplitters 2. There's more too.

    Yeah, I've heard that if you buy a console on it's own, you get PGR2 for free. Not on the site though...

    There seem to be a number of different deals around...

    I've seen Xbox on it's own for £129.99 at various places, Xbox + Halo, Midtown Madness 3, Timesplitters 2 & Crash Bandicoot for £139.99 from Game (which was the package I bought a couple of weeks ago), Xbox plus 3 games for £149 at MVC (i think)..

    Think it's just a case of shopping around

    If you go into game they are selling amped 2 and links 2004 for £40 for both of them.

    They both include 2 months each of xbox live for free. So thats two wicked games and 4 months of xbox live for £40. Sounds awesome. Especially when you rip all your favourite songs to the xbox hard drive and listen to them while shredding in amped 2.

    Totally awesome games! :smashin:

    Totally awesome on LIVE! too! :smoke:

    the deals all vary depending on how many consoles a company bought over xmas.
    GAME bought a lot and so MS gave them the halo and midtown madness packs for 140.
    some shop fronts still have them instock.
    they also offered an xbox and PGR for 130.
    the basic GAME deal though, is pick any game 39.99 with a console and get 20 quid off it. so thats where the XB and GTA for 150 came from.

    I was hunting around for the best deal a couple of weeks ago and decided that GAME worked out best ... got them to price match the local dixons offer (£139.99 for Halo + MM3 (bundle) + Splinter Cell (with extra dvd) + XIII) then their offer of £20 off any game (got XBL pack) + £10 off next game (got Amped 2) ... TopSpin at Woolies for £12.99 and I'm happy - 14 months XBL + console + 5 great games for less than £175 !!

    It's my b'day in a couple of weeks so I'll hopefully get PGR2 and Moto GP2 to add to the collection ... :)

Ended up going over the road to games station (dunno if thats a chain or an independant shop) got hitman 2 and conflict desert storm with the live package which i thought was better (crash being a bit shat apparently)

    Well, I wouldn't get it for Crash, I like Timesplitters 2 but it seems pointless getting that bundle cos it's only £9.99 brand new in game.

    I think most game stores are back to the pick'n'mix bundles now ... have a look round some of the other large retailers that also got the microsoft promotion ... most of my local woolies still have some 139 bundles left ...
