Just to get an idea this is what the conversion to US dollars is. I know there are many more factors than just a straight conversion. I just wanted to throw it out there.

Core $356.52
Premium $495.48
Elite $594.58

Odion4057d ago

Mikelarry4057d ago

Have they confirmed that you need BT broadband? I was kinda hoping they may offer it as a seperate service because last time I had BT broadband it sucked.

If this is true, thats good news for me, as my girlfriend is getting me a 360 next friday :D

Was going to get one myself a while ago, but she said wait.. i will get you one sometime soon.

Means i will have spare money to put towards a PS3 when the price finally comes down.. no way am i paying £400 or more for a console, plus it doesnt have that much games out for it at the moment.. and games is what its all about.

You will miss out on so much fun. The 360 hardware is not made to hold up. 1 year and your hardware will break, they will not give you free warranty forever you know. But thats just my opinion, I understand you if you buy a 360, it's cheap. But it is not a bargain...

testerg354057d ago

Sorry, but that sounds really bad that PS3 fans are now begging people not to buy a 360.

THe xbox will be coming down in price because of the elite is getting relesed on th 24th same day as the price drop make's sense and Tone you can pick up a PS3 with two games and an extra controller for £399 or just a PS3 for £329

boi4057d ago

but there are better offers, like Playstation 3 for £425 2 controllers 3 game sof your choice at Virgin megastores...

but hey pick whatever console suits u :)
