Forget a new Xbox 360 S, get an Xbox 360 Elite Splinter Cell Conviction Bundle: 250GB Console w/ HDMI + 2 Wireless Controllers + Game & More for $250 and a 3 year warranty with free shipping after applying code
Yep i got a deal. 250 gig xbox elite, 2 controls, 3 games (forza 3, halo odst and mass effect 2) and headset for $369AUD ;)
wow....nice deal....if i wasnt broke at the moment...this would be an awesome purchase....i have played on the 360 before...but i have never explored the machine thoroughly before...i own a PS3, so i try to see where the 2 machines stack up against one another...but until i get up close and personal and enjoy it on my own time, all i have is the info. i have found along with being able to tinker with the machine at a friends house
awesome deal. wish i would have waited a bit cuz i picked up an arcade for $150, good enough for me because it's not going online but i would rather have gotten this. is it just me or do the newer 360s not get hot? i have it on for hours and it's instantly cool when i shut it off.
smaller chipsets mate mines the same. my xbox got 3 red lights the other day. then 1 red light. took the cables at the back of the box out waited 20 seconds, put them back in and its fine. it slowly getting louder though mainly cause i fall asleep watching sky player every night and its for an extra 7 hours more a day. i should wake up and turn it off really :)
The newer 360s are better, but I wouldn't leave it on for too long.
I've noticed that as well. Mine is from Dec. 08 and the only area that was warm was right by the fans. And yes, it does cool off quickly! Now that I have my games installed to the HDD, it really doesn't get hot! No loud fans, disc only spins for a few seconds and low heat... ...but I still want the new one!
Just picked it up, I used the newegg preferred as well, so no interest for 6 months. Not bad. came out $270 with tax. BTW-does have the Jasper chip.
for anyone who has a decent ethernet cable over the 360 S :]
TO be honest I like the original Xbox 360 Elite over 360 S... And I got ethernet cable so the WiFi doesent hurt me + Jasper chip and game installs on HDD keep it quite and I have'nt got 1 RROD in my consoles lifetime...
As much as I agree, this a great deal for the less fortunate.
im pretty sure if they have 250 to spend, then more than likely the can cough up 50 extra bucks. their not unfortunate they just know a great deal when they see one.have a good day
At least I'm fortunate enough to be playing the superior version of Red Dead Redemption. :)
I hope ur not talking about the PS3 version with it's 20 people online....me being one of them!
Some people just dont understand that the world is not about PS3.. It might be a good console, but its also nice to try something different -.-
what the point ? just to have another console in your room ? the best hardware, finctionalities and exclusives are on ps3 (and if some xbox exclusives are goods, you can play it on pc : but it's relatively hard to have time to play all the good games ps3 offer, exclusives and multis)
Nice Try Though.
xmas present maybe :)
Dman that Rekof dude is really a head case , but ive been looking to upgrade my 20gb pro but i dont know which route to take a new S model or an old elite
I would go with the Elite. Its just such a BETTER deal. Im thinking about getting this before they phase out.
Both are Good where im from the elite comes with 4 games for 250.00.Thats hard to beat.the only diff is Wifi so im on the fence at this moment.i have 2 arcades and one old 20 gig to Trade .just don't know hummmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I personally dont use WIFI so i guess i should just grab one of the old ones before they disappear
I'm getting the s because of gamestop's deal and it only be 120. I could get the new s and then 2-3 games for the same price as that elite bundle. The wifi is gonna be huge for me
I have the 120GB Elite and I have no intention of upgrading to the 360 Slim when it does exactly the same job as what my Elite does! That is a great deal, only a fool would pass it up having the spare cash. xD
I guess its a good deal, to be honest me personally i still would not get that bundle only b-cuz i have the modern warfare bundle on day one. compare this and the splinter cell bundle, MW2 bundle is better value but compare this to the newer 360 i say go for the 360s instead only b-cuz of the wifi and the easier kinect port
Newegg seriously owns.
If it was $250 cheaper.
