    mmm.The spike in quality Wii releases of late has made me consider rebuying one.
    But other things about it put me off.
    A PS3 slim is also a contender for the kids xmas.Hopefully this black friday promo will lead to more price crashes.

    So blu ray players...what's the word on the multi region-ness? Anyone know if the Sony ones are easy to get in and change the settings?

    Cheap PS3s could swing me that way too but no chance of that playing US Blu-rays I assume.

    Speak the truth hussy!

    Lexx - quite a lot of Blu-Rays are region free anyway (all Paramount, I think). Just have a google around it. Not sure if there are any remote hack type things like there were in the glory days of DVD.

    EDIT: This sorta thing.

    Whats the deal with the 4gb Slims?
    I like the matte finish on those, could I grab one of the Kinect 4GB bundles and stick a larger HDD in it at a later date?

    Have MS released any Slim HDD's yet?
    Is it just the storage space that's the difference, ie is it still Wifi, lots of USB ports etc...

    Fairly certain this is how AIDS got started.

    Anyway....who the hell told you guys about Black Friday (/week)? It was meant to be a secret between Amazon and its millions of customers....

    Yeah, you can buy one of the 250gb HDDs later, or if you're feeling brave you can roll your own with a caddy and a scorpio blue drive.

    Other than that, and I believe a headset in the box, they're the same outside of styling (I also prefer the matte finish).

    Are the required caddies freely available?

    Can it be any 2.5 internal HDD? Is 250gb the 360's limit?

    Think I'm defiantly going to try and pinch one if I'm quick enough and the price really is -60% (or thereabouts).

    Caddies are made by some random joe on the internet as far as I've seen. I can't even find them right now. You can do without them (bare drive + padding), but it's not ideal.

    As for the actual hdd, it needs to be one of a specific models which then needs to be flashed.... and yes, for the moment 250gb is the limit.

    Hmm, didn't they do this before? They only offered a small number of each item at sale price - once they'd gone it was back up to normal price.

    If I can bag a 250gb 360slim and 32" tv that will sort out the dinning room.

    Dunno. I'm sure not for -60% though. If they dropped it to 99 that might tempt some.
  • Deleted user 20 November 2010 15:13:32
    $100/80 kindle would absolutely FLY off shelves, I reckon, can't be too far off at this rate; going to buy one in the foreseeable future but want to wait for black friday sale/holiday season to see if they drop the price a bit even if only temporarily
  • Deleted user 21 November 2010 22:54:51
    Anyone know if its kicking off at midnight?

    Sad I know, but I'm going to have a credit card handy at my desk at work. I've got a PC build planned, and this could either save me money or up the specs...or both. We'll see.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Hoping for some sort of amazing 250GB slim/Kinect bundle. Surely not?
