Don't pre-order the new console from Game - they're ripping you off badly at the full price of 199. At a bare minimum go to Tesco as they're offering it for 189 and Sainsburys are rumoured to be doing a 139 deal on the opening weekend.

Woah really? I was planning on trading my current in at Gamestation for a new one.. they're giving a higher price if you pre-ordered (I didn't pre-order though, brassic atm) and then they'll knock that off your new console.

You might get a better deal that way, it just depends on how much more they will give you for your old console if you pre-order from there. Hopefully that Sainsburys deal isn't just an internet troll, as I'll buy one even though I don't need it for 139!

If I'm not mistaken the Sainsburys deal was confirmed as untrue.

Just found a 185 at ShopTo

http://www.shopto.net/XBOX%20360/VIDEO%20GAMES/XB2BU57-Xbox%20360%20250gb%20Console%20Black.html

Or, if you don't have Alan Wake, International Cricket or SC:Conviction yet, Asda are bundling the console with any of these for 199, so no point buying from Game.

I'm so uneducated in the UK ways ;_; but does GAME refer to Gamestop, this "Gamestation" or is that what the store is called over there...GAME?

I pre-ordered at my local Game shop...I'm going in to pick it up. Didn't want to rely on the post. :P

And, I'm not trading my Elite in...I sold it to a mate, and I got a good price for it. And, he's sold his PS3 to get the Xbox...good man!

Mines showing the same thing. Hope it arrives on time otherwise i will just buy one in store and return the other when it comes. Looking forward to the built in wi-fi and the fact it no longer comes equipped with a diesel engine straight out of a JCB.

GAME is a store name, Gamestation is a seperate store although owned by GAME ;)

Me too, I've emailed game numerous times and they seem to insist it WILL come tomorrow, only time will tell...*stares longingly out of the window for the parcelforce van on the horizon* :(

Sat watching 24 and happened to check parcelforce and the status is now 'In Progress' and was last sorted in the National Hub at 21:34. So it looks like it's on the move. *Touch wood*

Anyone else got any progress?

For anyone not interested in buying from GAME, it's 189 at Currys online with 3 games; Halo 3, ODST and Forza 3. Just use code HOT05 to get it at this price.

http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/microsoft-xbox-360-250gb-console-plus-3-games-07247640-pdt.html?srcid=369&xtor=AL-1

Or a slightly worse deal, 209 with 6 older games at argos : Gears 2, Fable 2, PGR4, Halo 3, Halo Wars and Forza 2 (see special offers tab)

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/9263910/Trail/searchtext%3EXBOX+360+250GB.htm

Obviously better deals are imminent but these are pretty good for anyone who wants one now.
