This discount will last untill the end of 2008, so plenty of time to jump in! Prices in The Netherlands now are: Arcade: 149 Euro Premium: 199 Euro Elite: 249 Euro
I thought the 360 was getting a permanent price drop? Does that only apply to the US or something?
Europe got the price cut before USA. Normal prices are: Arcade 179 Euro Premium 239 Euro Elite 299 Euro So now they give extra discounts on those prices in The Netherlands.
Thanks for the clarification. For those who haven't, this is a great time to pick up a 360!
THe Mart? at xboxkings? with a sackboy avatar? wtf???
On the EU or Dutch website of Xbox.com they give away free discount on the Arcade, Premium and Elite.. (by sending a form to xbox.com) So you buy it for something around 179,- and you get the discount afterwards. Fair deal right..
I heard they're giving them for free with every Granola bar purchase
And a bag of Crackerjacks
And a Halo plushie. n_n
and a HD DVD drive!
LET's go with a PS2 and AAA JRPGS!
Or was it with the purchase of a Twinkie
No that will be bundled with Gears of War 2
They're probably giving them for free with every jug of SunnyD you buy
A heater and Sunny D? Sold! lol
So on your next grocery store trip,pick up one of the above items and you'll get a failbox 3fixme with it
Make sure to keep your receipt for probable expectations of RROD
Is the smoke detector included in that bundle?
guys are very bias how can a xbox king article get approved
It's a legitimate story. You don't like it, don't click on it.
go back circlejerking with the Force! yes U
The story is true, end of story, does not matter wher eit comes from. Have to love prejudice around here.
how does any ps3 related site get approved? Seriously, get a grip. Oh wait, you think the ps3 sites should be approved, because you like the ps3. Do you realize that some people like the 360?
iam sorry 4 teh PS3rd..... after 2 years the PS2 did 30 Million.. ps3 only 15. The loser this gen is ALREADY sony. Dont care about japan, europe, US sales.. fact is that there are 50% more ppl buying 360 than xbox1... and 50% less buying PS3 than PS2. Where are the promised games with 1080p and 60FPS? Iam waiting now for the games which arent even out :D.. losers! you got owned this gen.
%50 more people are the typical white trash idiot americans
"Where are the promised games with 1080p and 60FPS?" Ninja Gaiden Sigma,GT5:Prologue,and Wipeout HD. You got owned again lol Double Kill Triple Kill Kill-taculer
so an xbox port? A demo and a downloadable remake?
Would people stop talking about 1080p!? Neither console can do it from what I've seen.Prologue is just a demo and Virtua Tennis on the 360 doesn't require a lot of horsepower.60FPS and all that stuff is PR bull.
Steven you are wasting your time with these idiots. And schmeidenkamp, you racist bastard, have been reported.
fair enough, that was pretty harsh i admit
@Yoshimeetsu Your right.I'm gonna play go some Live instead of dealing with these lunatics
No discount can warrant jumping on that ship
Not even needing a High-Def DVD player and the PS3 hype will make be jump on the PS3 ship(Big ugly thing with inferior hardware). I'd rather upconvert DVD's.
Trust me...it's a much better ship then your on right now and I mean at least it's not sinking lol.
The 360 has alot of games, more importantly alot of games I like and want to play! The Ps3 is still slow in gaining a library of games I am interested in. So judging each console as a ship based on the amount of entertainment it can provide me... The X360 is like a cruise ship that has taken me to many interesting places that I have enjoyed! The Ps3 right now is more like the local ferry! Once they can take people to many different locations... I will jump on board. I will not buy a Ps3 right now, and just be happy with any game they throw at me just so I have something to play... I went through that when the 360 came out, and I won't go through it again if I don't have to! It will be OK though... I can buy a Ps3 later when the prices are lower and more of the games are cheaper!
matter captain its a site that's exactly the same as Sony defense force
Give it a rest already! Go write your congressman, start a petition but please stop crying in this thread.
well you got owned ps3tard "Iam waiting now for the games which arent even out :D.. losers! " gt5 last gen.. no dmg, poor enviroments, just cars look good.. wipeout HD not out. 200 ps3 titels and 3 games?? you got promised all games.. i mean Blu Ray 0 FULL HD Its like the disc change with dvd9... 1 % of all 360 games use it poor ps3 midgets!
no one here was whining about the lack of hi res hi framerate except you. I bought a ps3 because my preferred type of game isn't gay ass shooters. I bought a ps3 because the F**cking thing wont break on me after six months. who wants to buy something and fear that everytime they turn it on it could be their last.
I think you are over-reacting...the 360 breaks every 2 months...not 6!
You trolls are funny(in the 12 year old ignorant boy sort of way) You guys are the only PS3 fanboys not on ignor(yet), this whole section is filled with usernames and no comments. lol
wow, you're just so mature and noble. we've got opinions, sorry
First of all, in reference to your "12 year old ignorant boy"...I am not...12. 2nd who are you calling troll?
great time to pick up a 360... or is this a sign of desperation from Microsoft against the tidal wave that is Little Big Planet ? You have to agree that the timing is perfect, but I doubt it will have any effect against a AAA game.
There are multi platform games that will garner more over all hype and attention lol. The GTA4 expansion will counter LBP lol. "desperation" ^^^ like 2 price drops in the first year? Kinda like removing hardware and function from the console to make it cheap so it could compete?(striped hardware)
LBP is not a tidal wave and wont even do well so get over it. Gears will sell more then both LBP,RFOM2, and Socom combined. You can keep that boring azz pointless game called LBP and keep making yourself believe it's going to be a great. Even RFOM2 looks generic so good luck on your amazing list lol. edit below: I tried the 1st and looking at those vids yesterday they look generic. They might have great gameplay but the generic look of RFOM2 kills it for me just like the boring look of LBP kills it for me. I have every right to give my opinion just like you do so don't take it personal. I've been gaming long enough to to judge a game before release and so far the PS3 line up looks pretty weak.
sounds like the xbots live a life of denial. lol. I'll not start a flame war, we'll see what the numbers have to say when the holiday season is over.
boring, pointless, generic...have you even tried any of those games? If not, then your not in the position to judge. **I guess you disagree, PM me and provide me a sound, cogent, and valid argument, then I'll take you seriously. **Fair enough, but I recommend trying the games, especially since they are giving out beta opportunities for them, which would give you a lot more insight into the actual games rather than videos or images, which could have been bad quality or altered for better quality.
LBP tidal wave? Are you serious? Last time i heard about 360s demise was teh judgement day when MGS4 was released. The multimillion seller franchise and great legacy from PS1/2 era with huge fan following. If that thing could only generate few 100k sales over 360 for only a month you'd think a pseudo 3d platformer with no online sharing content to begin with, will even top MGS4s hype? Seriously how old r you?
You guys are seriously off topic.Let me point you in the right direction--------------------- --------------------> On topic:If one more price drop happens in America I will buy a few for my PS2 owning friends who have not yet made the next gen jump
"On topic:If one more price drop happens in America I will buy a few for my PS2 owning friends who have not yet made the next gen jump" Can I get one if I ask nicely, please? ;)
"sounds like the xbots live a life of denial. lol." Using words such as Xbots and Sony droids, or other words from the console war vocabulary, is strictly prohibited in this Zone. Where are the mods at? Someone needs a ban.
@Gorgon Wish I could but another price drop in America doesn't seem likely right now
Thank you Steven. I live in Europe, though. But thank you for the kind reply. :)
I really truely hope LBP is the great system selling game that the fanboys want it to be! Because if it doesn't sell like crazy, as some are expecting it to... I feel there might be a mass fanboy suicide by x-mas! Everyone... get out and promote this game and save a fanboys life! LBP,LBP,LBP!!!
Soon enough you'll be able to get a free one in you're happy meal.
Yeah but i think they would have to change the name to - 'Unhappy Meal'!!! ;-D I'll get 'Gears 2' for my P.C next year;) Not that i'm bothered really.
Which ever side your batting for (and i dont mean sexuality!) you can not argue with the value for money with those prices
maybe he owns both systems?
No I think he did that to annoy Sony fanboys.Which I gotta say is working impressively
damn, 99% of the posts here are sony fanatics talking about twinkies and sh!t. lazt fat fucs. the 360 will win in NA. you dont like it then move anywere else in the world. join the rest of the racist/idiots like schmeiden. you ppl talk like if the ps3 is ahead of the 360. you idiots dont even realise that for the past year yall been saying the same sh!t " we catching up" lol you sony fanatics are gana be so heart broken
what are you? acting like anyone who isnt American is a piece of SH!T or something. Thats being a bigot right there! go to hell
They couldnt pay ME to own that piece of crap! I wouldnt care if they gave me their 10 best games free with it. Yes I am and have always been a SONY FANBOY! what other alternative do I have? A Pii, no thanks - I am too old for that kiddie system. A 360? MS makes it - enough said!
boseles no not a piece of sh!t, i just dont care about what they buy unlike you sony fanatics. and that comment was for schmeiden. did you not see his post? i guess thats ok to you though right?
and so it continues...!
I must have a stalker on here with 2 multiple accounts. Is it you Juuken? Go on, be honest now.... Oh what am I saying... you have 100 multiple accounts... lol
