    Both available at Sainsbury.
    PS2 is the Black version with infrared remote receiver and NO games.
    Xbox is the ltd edition pack with Midtown Madness3 and another game.
    Beware that it's only these 2 packs that are on offer and Sainsbury's still appear to have them priced at full price on their shelves......they scan st the lower price.
    .
    .
    .
    ......to get an even bigger bargain then find a Sainsbury that has them in stock and then go to Comet and do their 110% price match to get them for £64!!!:eek:

    They've been at theat price for the last 2 days, so if you want one I'd say to rush out now as they're becomming scarse.
    It was originally posted over on thedvdforums, and I didn't realise no-one had posted it here, but was reminded when I saw an advert for a PS2 in the for sale forum.

    thanx t@xman, managed to locate one in Beckton (E6) and just picked it up... but it came with the games GT2002 and JSTR... The strange thing is that, after being scanned, on the cash receipt it came up as XBOX With HALO...

    Strange!?

    Went in to Beckton and Sydenham and neither of them had either.

    If anyone in the London area finds the Xbox offer, please get me two as a guy at work also wants one.

    Thanks

    Near me is the largest Sainsbury in the UK - they have none left and as far as they know they won't be getting any more either.

    :(

    no luck in any of the 5 stores i visited and they are not getting any more
    comet and pc world will not price match this any way i tried ended up having arguements with the manager in the end but he wouldnt budge!
    never mind ill have to wait till someone else does a deal like that as thats about the right price for them i feel!

    AAARRRGHH!! Went to Sainsburys last night after work. There was a bloke buying the last two. YES TWO!!! Greedy @%$£$^.

    If I hadn't gone to B&Q to get some Gaffer tape, I would have had at least one of them. Well narked.

    The guy in Sainsburys in MK had never heard of the offer and didn't believe me until he found out that all the stock had gone...

    Then he was gutted that he didn't know and so didn't get one himself.

    Nothing in Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge or anywhere in West Kent. In most stores where I know people who work there, the staff have bought up a load for 60 quid ea (staff discount applied).

    The Badger Farm and the Hedge End stores in Winchester didn't have any left :( not surprising i suppose given that this offer has been going for over a week now anyway..

    Currently trying to debate if it's worthwhile getting a new crystal one pre-modded (190 + new hdd etc) as from what i've read it just depreciates like hell as soon as you buy them.

    Second hand might be a good idea :E

    Was shopping in Sainsbury's Blackhall Edinburgh yesterday and I noticed they had seven Xboxes in stock priced at £74.99. No sign of any PS2.

    New stock in Tunbridge Wells at 75 quid now!! (just running out of door now)

    Trickster - if you're unlucky enough to work in Sainsbury's in the first place I figure you should be allowed first dibs on good offers!!!!!!! ;)

    Guess so mate. Damn. Brought the motorbike to work today. So if my local store has got some after work, could be fun trying to balance it.
