    welcome to the elite club

    its also worth pointing out that you cant keep your save games so it might be worth trading some i lost all 200 of my forza cars but hey thats life although gears and rainbow appear to be exeptions not sure about others

    alternatively buy a memory card b4 ur new console if theres anything u rli wanna keep

    just a warning m8

    You cannot 'Copy' the Forza Motorsport 2 save data to a memory card; instead you have to select the option to 'Move' it. This is what I did and didn't lose any of my game data.

    Welcome to the Elite club!

    What trade in did you get for your prem? And what price are you paying for your Elite? If you don't mind me asking?!

    I've heard that some stores are starting to turn away premiums due to amount traded in, my advice would be to try game and gamestation and see if they will take it, best to get rid of it before it completely looses value.

    Flog it on the forums or on Ebay. Get about £150-180+ on either of those bud.

    Where to begin? Because it's dishonest for one, secondly if they test it out at the time you take it in then you either have to lie to them or admit you knew it didn't work but wanted to try it on.

    Third, if they don't test it and sell it on as-is then some poor person will end having forked out good money for your bad product.

    On another note, GAME do pay £140 for a Premium, was just in there enquiring about returning my dead console.

    hi guys just traded my premium in at game, unboxed, and got £160 of the price of the the elite so i only paid £150 and with that i got 1 extra controller and crackdown and colin mcrae dirt. OK i dont like thses 2 games but i am just going to trade them in for bioshock and stranglehold. Dont think thats bad value considering the 2 games must be worth £80. This was at gamestation

    Also Gamestation are doing a 20/30 day return on the HDD. So if you get an elite and can get microsoft to get your a transfer cable quickly, then you could transfer the contents of your premium 120GB hdd to the new 120GB and not lose anything. Then take the HDD back into gamestation.
