    Did anyone know that the 360 Elite price has dropped?

    It certainly took me by surprise today and I sell the damn things.

    Damnit!

    This happened just after I bought my xbox pro and now I've bought an Elite they decide to drop it.

    They should really announce it in advance.

    Is this an official price drop or just some special at whatever store?

    theres actually alot less markup on the consoles than you'd think. HMV are doing some good bundle offers too.

    today I sold an Elite, extra black control, Left 4 Dead, Fable 2 and Halo Wars for 230.09

    that wasn't an official bundle, but we got quite good flexibility to make the bundles work for people.




    I think it must be an official one, I can't see us being able to cut it by that much without Microsofts greenlight.

    Nobody thinks there's decent mark up on consoles.

    For those who don't follow the Bargains thread, you can get an Elite from Littlewoods Direct for 179.99 before vouchers are added, taking it down to nearer 150...

    You may be right!

    Then people should stop complaining about the prices of them, they can't go much cheaper than they are now, otherwise they'd be selling at a loss.

    A good deal at GAME is an Elite + Halo 3 or NFS Undercover for 200 - with Halo Wars as well for 220

    It must be a pre-emptive strike against a PS3 price cut. (Or they've got a shed load of stock hanging around in bonded warehouses.)

    I bought an Elite two days ago from Amazon, contacted them today to express my annoyance and they've refunded me 15 as a goodwill gesture. Always a pleasure using them, doubt Play's customer service would have been so generous.

    Clever marketing move by MS if it is to preempt a PS3 price drop.

    They'll be a good few /Facehands at SCEE if this is permanent. NoE won't care, they're too busy snorting coke off hooker's arses.

    Already posted in the Bargains Thread but you can get SFIV or a few other games for 10 if you buy a 360 from Amazon. Argos got Sega Superstar Tennis, Banjoo Kazooie and Viva Pinata for 20.

    I would get one, but getting the transfer cable sounds like a hassle, gamestation sell the 120gig HDD with a cable I hear so I may just do that /shrug

    I only need my gamertag and my COD4 saves...the arcade games I can re-download with the gamertag I believe.

    Not really, You phone, the mail it. The process itself is even easier, plugin usb, disc in tray, job done.

    Be wary of buying from Argos as they seem to be dumping old stock. Cracked and bought one yesterday for 189. Got it home and noticed it was manufactured in 2007 and it's way louder than my 20 gig.

    Getting returned today as it's "faulty"

    169 from Littlewoods direct.

    179 & you get a tenner off as it's over 25.
