Anyone heard of any good deals on now?

There's a few titles coming out I want that are 360 exclusive. Too Human, Braid, Fable 2, GoW2... :o

Don't know of any deals personally, but it's always worth looking at

before buying.

I bought an xbox on monday.

I only saw the deal in a few jb hifi's so it might be store specific ( might need to shop around)

I got an xbox elite bundle (black xbox with all the normal elite stuff plus gears of war and halo 3)
was advertised as $627

i got them to throw in a regarge battery pack and play as you go cable (normally about $40+)

and payed $650

With the games included and the 120gig hard disk it works out to be much better value than any of the pro or standard consols i saw.

I'f your going one of the pro xbox's make sure you get one with a 60 gig hard drive

Had already checked http://www.ecogamer.com/. It's one of my bookmark sites. Hehe.

Seems like with the release of the 60gig models of Pro's that the cheap deals dried up. Boo.

I'm not sure I've ever even seen an Elite console in a store. Are they usually behind the counters or something?

Too Human looks gay. Its going to be a flop apparently. I myself is disappointed that it ended up like that.

I got my 360 for $399 Premium version and the Arcade is $249 at Big W.

Sadly I have to agree with windex on Too Human - the demo was dismal, and it feels buggy as hell. It didn't really inspire any feelings of wanting to keep playing.


In fact, Castle Crashers is probably a better brawler.

I dunno, I dig cybernetics and norse mythology.

And JB has it for like 70 bucks.

Worth a punt.

Braid is a system seller.

Kudos to Jonathan Blow.

Also, you should bookmark the Australian Gaming Bargains website http://palgn.com.au/nav.php?sort=&q=Australian+Gaming+Bargains
Only updated once a week but it's in a very nice easy to read big list, separated by stores, then by gaming platform - and works well as a companion bookmark to the ecogamer website.

Too Human demo got ME excited - cant understand all the problems people have been having with it...seemed bloody awesome in fact.

Oh and congrats on your purchase GhostWhoWalks - hope you got a good deal on all that - those wireless network adapters are supposed to be like $150+ by themselves aren't they?

They threw in the switcher for free. I prob coulda done better, but not too fussed as I was in a shopping mall. And every minute you spend in a shopping mall dirties your soul.

Heh.

True, true - sometimes you're willing to pay a little extra for the convenience, soul cleanliness,etc. ;p
