I'm considering getting this deal just so I can turn around and ebay everything a few days later.. make a $100-$200 profit easily
evrfighter  +   1953d ago
almost bought it but it doesn't come with a hard drive.

"almost bought it but it doesn't come with a hard drive"
or an accessory
Bereaver  +   1953d ago
You guys are blind sided, it's 259 for the arcade and +99$ for the elite. That's 349.

wow. you fail at life because you can't spell the word "sentence". FACT!

when ps3 makes a deal, it's considered an awesome thing. When MS does it, it's desperation.

On top of that this is what WALMART is offering, not MS.

so 360 cost less than $50 now???
wow!!! just WOW!!!

sure u wont see these deals on ps3 or wii, u know why guys?? because there IS demand for them at their current prices!!!

360 sold a little more than ps3 last month because of the $100 price cut and the 1 million banned console!!

i give u my word that this month ps3 sold more than 360 in USA!!

this is the scenarios we have

1: ps3 and 360 will be fighting for second place in USA
2: ps3 and wii will be fighting for first place world wide this gen!!
3: ps3 will be the victor in both scenarios!!!


there is a limit to an offer!! when u practically give your console for free then u can count on me and call it desperation!

That really is a great deal. If I didn't already have one I would pick that up in a heartbeat.

@ baseball fan
that doesn't "compute" with "it" =/
SilentNegotiator  +   1953d ago
It's been said not to question a good thing...
But, that's like....$170 worth of free stuff! I mean.....why?

If I didn't already have one, I'd be on this like a hawk on a hamster.
Eddie20101  +   1953d ago
Seems desperate because Microsoft throws so much extra stuff in to sell a console, and the fact that they are doing this after the Christmas shopping season.

And yes these deals are made buy Microsoft with retailers.

lol @ stupid fanboys
So you call that desperation? Then by your logic, this is the ultimate desperation.

The Lazy One  +   1953d ago
First, Sales after christmas are hugely common. It has nothing to do with desperation. It's boxing day!

Second, as an american... I really do hate futureshop. More so futureshop's lack of being in america.

Funny thing I found:
the 120gb PS3 costs the same as the 160gb with 3 sweet games.
The Happy Baby  +   1951d ago
@mr bot
everyone is entitled to their opinion :)
but its for the benefit of everyone, that we limit the amount of fanboy crap coming out of our mouths. :)

what I dont understand
is why there's no digital optical out on the 360. Im not sure if there's one with the elite, but if youve got an awesome sound system and an HDTV you need it to get the best possible sound. Really bugs me.
SantistaUSA  +   1953d ago
My xbox360 20gb has the optical out, i cant imagine that yours wouldn't!
crck  +   1953d ago
it's on the component cable which they no longer include. If you want to use spdif out and hdmi together you either have to make alterations to the component cable(take off the plastic shell so it will fit) or you have to buy a dongle for like $15-$20 or so off ebay.
GameOn  +   1953d ago
Mine has an optical out.
It's on the scart/RGB cable with the switch which came with older box's. Not sure the newer box's have that type of cable but I think you can buy a litle optical thing.

These pics may give you a better Idea.

Edit: crck was there fist, he knows the crack.

It has an HDMI output. If you have an "awsome" audio system, then it should have multiple HDMI inputs and one output (so you can run all of your equipment through the reciever and have one HDMI going to your HDTV).

This is the advantage of HDMI, so both high-def sound and high-def video can go through one cable.
DarkSavior  +   1953d ago
Shazui, you need to get with the times man. HDMI audio is far more uncompressed than optical, google that too buddy

What the title says
karan8624  +   1953d ago
This WOULD be an amazing deal but unfortunately its the arcade
OGharryjoysticks  +   1953d ago
Supposedly..."Starting from 259" - Build your bundle. Pick the console. Pick 2 games. Then one accessory.

sunil  +   1953d ago
with so many deals on the 360 going on... i have a feeling then next xbox might be on the horizon
Traveler  +   1953d ago
There have been some amazing deals on the PS3 too. Does that mean the next Playstation is on the horizon?

It is the holiday season and we get more good deals around this time, that is all.
sunil  +   1951d ago
If the deals were $100 off + extras then yes.
The Iron Sheik  +   1953d ago
Insane? Like buying a console without a HDD and paying around a dollar a gig for a 120GB HDD after realizing it is necessary?

I paid $100 for my 320GB HDD that is in my PS3. And that was over a year ago they are even cheaper now.
NiiGhTx  +   1953d ago
its actually $150 to buy a 120GB.
lolol. xbots are getting owned
justlikeme  +   1953d ago
No xbox 3 or ps4 anytime soon.
I doubt MS will try and get their next xbox out any time soon. I think if they did, it would hurt them this time. Say if they announced xbox 3 for 2011; Sony will probably wait 2 maybe 3 years and release the ps4, and by that time the xbox 3 would look like what the ps2 games look compared to the ps3.
Atleast thats what I think.
Harry_Manback  +   1953d ago
I agree
I agree that there wont be xbox 3/ps4 anytime soon.
But that situation you just described sounds eerily familiar.
It kinda sounds like the same boat that the 360 is in at the moment.
ingrando  +   1953d ago
it's still to expensive
vmanj  +   1953d ago
awesome deal.....
it comes with everything but a hard drive right?
SuperSaiyan4  +   1953d ago
Sell the adaptor with the Red and White Audio ports and optical port seperatly, they used to include it with the Elite my Red Elite came with it but from what I know they dont include it with the Elite anymore.
PS360PCROCKS  +   1953d ago
Damn an elite, $50 gift card, MW2, Forza 3 and 12 month xbox live for $349? That's a damn good deal. That's $520 at normal price.
aaronisbla  +   1953d ago
when you put it in perspective like this, its great, if i had the money, id jump on it but the holidays have cleaned me out
YoungDrack  +   1953d ago
just ordered this mugg, about to use the ecard to get a HDD
Kevin Butler  +   1953d ago
kewlkat007  +   1953d ago
Yeah don't think I've seen any better deals
NiiGhTx  +   1953d ago
Without a Hard Drive. !!!!!
Damn, M$ sure fcuks people by the ass. Oh, and is Xbox 360 really doing that bad?? M$ you better watch out. Sony is coming for you!
Arachnid  +   1953d ago
This reminds me of...
I'm sorry if this deal appeals to all of you gamers. But for years I have never had a problem that I couldnt fix, or a problem that was critical. The Xbox for that matter has always given me problems, even the last gen xbox that I owned had the red ring (YES ITS TRUE). I am here for quality. To be honest this reminds me of people that sell bargins in which the product only lasts like a year. I would put my money to something that actually works and is reliable.
heroprotagonist  +   1953d ago
Of course you wouldn't, ps3 fanboy. I've had my 360 for almost 4 years with no problems. New ones have no more problems than the ps3 and maybe even less.
RockmanII7  +   1953d ago
My 360 has the same amount of problems that my PS2 had
Nathan Drake2  +   1953d ago
this is the only way x360 can sell equally ps3...in US
PS360PCROCKS  +   1953d ago
Hahahahaha I don't even own a Xbox 360 anymore, I sold it in favor of my PS tres and I think your an idiot. But no, the xbox 360 just sells in America, $200 homie, PS2 had it and now so does 360. Nice try though.
FxckOSX  +   1953d ago
huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu uuuuuuge stacked 360(TM)
Aleusia  +   1953d ago
Heh heh heh HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! they sure are desperate and stupid.
rezenu  +   1953d ago
Not a bad deal.
LOLatURDUMBAZZ  +   1953d ago
M$ is really tryn to make me buy a 360 before natal is bundled with it. I might take them up on this 1. Nope, I think i'll wait for them price drop next year and natal. Then I will be making a valued purchase.
gameman  +   1953d ago
what a great deal
i mean the price tag here is really good i wander why didn't they do for the ps3 ?
Silent  +   1953d ago
Free Xbox360 is coming SPRING 2010 :)
deshon09  +   1953d ago
wow that is
not bad but you still need a hard drive and a wifi adapter thats 250 bucks more new it could be cheeper used of course but hay still not a bad deal

MS Plan..Xbox Live
Some people are commenting that MS are desperately throwing their console at customers, pleading with them to buy it at any cost.

They're not.

By bundling 12 months of live they're getting another household hooked into gamertags, FPS clans etc. This means an extra $40 in 12 months but, more importantly to MS, an extra advocate of the 720 for the future.
eddispider  +   1953d ago
Xbox live should have been free and there are no good games pluss you dont get bluerayplayer and wireless connection. And you have to buy battery for the controller.
alb1899  +   1953d ago
Maybe you are blind or something 358 for an elite, minus 2 games (120 box), minus 12 month XBOX LIVE (50), minus (50) on a gift card = is like buy the an elite for 138 dollars....Mennn! is no that a good deal!!!????
And remember all the good games just coming......i have one but i should buy this tooo!!
m-s-8-2  +   1953d ago
So what exactly is the difference between the arcade and elite aside from color and the hdd?
maawdawg  +   1953d ago
nothing too drastic. outside of the two things you mentioned they are pretty much the same. The arcade has an onboard memory card. The elite has a headset that I don't know if the arcade has.
