Where is the cheapest place to get a new xbox with some games, any good deals at the moment?
The console itself is £80 from play.com delivered.
Or buy it from Game inc Black for £100 and then sell the game on Ebay for £31 like I did!
I'm sure I've seen new box's in Game advertised for £59.95 (no games).
They are second hand, with 3 mths warranty I think
Definitely not for new machines.
I may have misread the flyer then
Still, with 3 month guarantee, what could possible go wrong?
Not too much, especially if you plan on modding it anyway?
I saw some in either Game or Gamestation (I can't remember which one now) last Saturday for £79:99 with one game, they were new definately 2nd hand.
2nd hand xb in gamestation and game cost £80 complete rip off really but worth getting one for reason it will prob be one of the better models not them awful 1.6 upward series.
I have seen a unbox x box with 4 games for about £80 in the gamestation near me (huddersfield)
If I find a better deal ill let you know.
Why new?? Cash Converters in my high street often have them for £40-50 inc 3mth warranty. You can often haggle a bit as well last one I got was a v1.6 crystal for £40 with all leads, box and a controller!! I have purchased quite a few for mates and chipped them with no problems.
So what's so 'awful' about a 1.6?
They use cheap nasty memory and video on the mboard also I hate Northampton all shops like game, gamestation even cash converters sell 2nd hand xb for £80
WHATS UP WITH THAT!!!!!
I got one from gamestation in the Drapery today for £59.99. Softmodded it, now running XBMC, absolute bargain
ToysRUs £99 with 5 free games.
These are the games in the offer:
Arcade Treasures 2
Hot Wheels Stunt Track
Men of Valour
Only Halo 2 is any worth.
Hey, they're still FREE aren't they? There's still the option of buying the box at £99.00 on it's own.
Hmmm, bit of a dilemma there. "Do I take the box and 5 FREE games or just the box on it's own for the same price?"
Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking it, but you can get the box on its own for £80 delivered from play. You can pick up Halo 2 for around a tenner on ebay. So it works out cheaper if you're not interested in those extra games.
Argos has the Xbox,controller,Halo 2 and Forza for £99.99 on its website. Thats not a bad deal IMO
And DVD Remote
All the ones I have bought from them also are recent manufactures, all with Samsung drives inside
That is a great deal!
I was under the impression that not all samsung xbox drives are equal, the original samsung drives that shipped with the first xbox's read nearly everything whereas the latter sammys for the newer xbox's are just as bad as the other brands?
My v1.3 box sammy drive will read anything I throw at it, bar Dual Layer media.
You are correct.
Silly me. Fancy forgetting the DVD remote....and after I had just bought one for the kids too....
Not worth getting xb remote waste of money its horrible.
If you want dvd playback support just mod it
I disagree, the remote is a god send if you have XBMC.
Got XBMC and remote still not worth it just use wired or wireless controller.
Shame Xecuter IR don't work with XBMC that would of been great.
Fairly certain I saw "used" with full 12 month warranty in the Luton GAME store today
