    hi all
    just thought i'd post to let you know that Microsoft are going to be releasing the 'Limited Edition' Crystal Xbox again next month for general release, not in 'Limited' quantities. So those of us [yup, me included...] who thought we had a somewhat 'Limited Edition' of their Xbox on our hands can be very dissapointed :rolleyes: lol. Seriously though, i can't say i'm gonna loose too much sleep over it, yeah its a little annoying, but at the end of the day, the reason i bought it in the first place was for its looks not its 'status'...pretty pleased that i will finally be able to get some more controllers :cool: luvvly jubbly.

    Crystal Xbox Returns...for good

    Also a Halo 2 Crystal Bundle too, might be an idea to flog mine on ebay n buy a new'un before 'joe public' gets hold of the info ;)

    regards

    the only xbox that seems to be truly 'limited' is the green halo edition.
    not seen many of them around mew or used.

    yeah
    agreed, they do appear to be pretty thin on the ground. i do like the look of them...but in terms of 'fitting in' with the rest of my stuff, it was the crystal one all the way for me :)

    Hi guys.

    Just a quickie to say that the crystal xbox's are coming back on 8th October. I have just pre-ordered one from Game for £99. I think it only comes with 1 controller, but still, they do look nice. :D I am just happy that I didn't pay a silly amount for one off e-bay where people wanted £150 - £200 :suicide:

    Cheers

    Rob

    Thats great news, I have just sold my "limited Edition" Crystal Xbox for £170 on Ebay.

    The buyer is going to be pretty Pis*ed off when he finds out.

    Spoke to someone in GAME today and he says they'll not be getting any standard black X-Box's back in store till well after Christmas....only crystal ones.............. looks like the Crystal one won't be that limited after all. :cool:

    Someone's made a boob - Stores received promotional boxes showing X-Box with two crystal controllers on the front, when in fact you only get one. :oops: Staff were instructed to use Price and 'pre order now' stickers to cover the offending pictures before someone demanded another controller. :blush:
