    Thanks for the reply. What kind of files can you put on the USB? Only game saves?

    Game saves, gamertag profiles, game installs... the USB drive does almost everything the HDD can. (I think it's just missing the original Xbox backwards compatibility, if memory serves, but if you've got an official HDD plugged in too then that'll be no problem)

    That's not a bad idea actually although the number of USB ports available could be a problem with Kinect, A Play and Charge Kit, the wireless network adapter and the USB sticks.
    Seriously consider replacing your P&C kit with one of those mains-powered dual chargers. P&C cables have been linked with significantly dropping the maximum charge level of the batteries. This investment *should* transcend the generational leap, as 360 controllers are awesome, and you'll always be able to use them on your PC, at least.

    I keep forgetting to look for bargains on those chargers, sorry - my friend's wanted one for months, but apparently I just don't care about him. :p

    Yep, to echo PJ, I'm just putting games on usb storage (went a bit nuts with the recent GoD fire-sale), they play fine. The most important factor, by my reasoning anyway, is that even if it's slightly more ' per GB' to go USB, at least USB sticks/sd cards can always be used with other things when the 360 becomes irrelevant.

    Worth pointing out that you can only have 2 USB sticks inserted into your 360 at any time

    I've got to the stage where i maxed out my 320gb hard drive & now also have five 32gb sticks on the go - it helps to keep relevant DLC on the one stick

    eg Rock Band/Guitar Hero/Lips on 1 stick//Call of Duty on another etc

    I really do hope they release a 500gb or 750gb drive for the 360 before the "720" comes out

    Thanks for all the replies and suggestions! Quite helpful.
    I think that will be the route I take then
    Is there a difference between using the official Xbox USB sticks and using any old one?

    Don't think so - any old one just won't be preformatted for the 360, and you can only use 32GB of the space on it for 360 stuff.

    So you can use 32gb sticks? I thought it topped out at 16gb?

    They quietly upped the limit last firmware update, it'll do up to 32gb now.

    According to HUKD you can pick up a wii u premium plus a copy of zombi u for 199 from hmv instore. Might be the tipping point if you're on the fence about the machine (I love mine to bits).

    @Lt_Drebin For some reason your post didn't show up before I wrote that!

    @robthebuilder No worries :) That deal's good enough to post twice imo!

    Hopefully this will shift a few more units. It's the most "fun" system I've owned since the Dremacast. Which is sadly quite concerning...

    They could sell them for 100 and I don't think I'd bite.

    Now TV update:

    This thing is turning out to actually be quite profitable!

    After cancelling the account they are now offering me a 15 Asda/supermarket voucher as well as additional 2400 MS points to renew my account which costs 10. Great stuff!

    Make sure to turn off auto renew and wait a few weeks. Whala!

    My local game had a load of brand new copies of the special edition Dishonored with the tarot cards for 15. It has a sale sticker so I imagine its nationwide.

    Dishonored is tempting but it must be a prime candidate for PS Plus in the next few months. That service has totally changed my game buying habits.

    Same. I almost bought Okami and MGS HD things and both are on plus. Literally no need for me to buy Vita games. I stopped buying PS3 stuff ages ago anyway.

    200 was about right for me and I've got to admit it's a nice piece of kit. Haven't tried Zombie U yet but my eldest (4) absolutely loved Nintendo Land. He loves the gamepad, although he has dropped it twice already so he's on a warning.

    The girl in HMV rolled her eyes when I walked up to the till with the box - I was about the 40th person already that day and it was only 10am.

    They had about 15 Wii U in at Cardiff HMV this morning but no stock of Zombi U so it was basically 200 for the premium pack with Nintendoland. Was tempted but the lack of Zombie U was the deal breaker for me, that and the fact that I couldn't find a store copy of Monster Hunter anywhere. Did pick one up for a friend but I'm going to hold fire till it drops about another 50 or so. HMV sold out by 11.00 am I think.

    Do we know that Forza Horizon is 15 on Amazon ?

    @DUFFMAN5 Yes, err, maybe. It was showing 1 - 2 months delivery after going hot on HUKD and I missed out. Its now showing in stock from the 25th.

    Been looking for a cheap copy of this for ages and couldn't see it secondhand for less than 20 so was gutted to have missed out on the Amazon stock. But then I heard that Argos had it at 15 too so picked one up - still showing 15 at Argos if you want it quicker than Amazon.

    Happy "birthday" The All New Bargains Thread, started when I was unemployed at the time and had nothing better to do than browse the shelves in Woolies.

    This thread has outlasted them!

    Tiger Woods 12: The Masters (360) - 4.98 at Zavvi.

    Not bad if anyone's looking for a cheap golf fix ahead of the Masters.
