The deal, which is available in-store and online, coincides with the Xbox 360 price drop which sees the Core model selling for £179.99 and the Premium system reduced to £249.99.

“We expect it to be a massive weekend for games and console sales,” said Woolworths games buyer Alastair Burks.

I say it still won't sell lmao, unless people have been planning to buy it, not many are going say "yeah its only £375, ill av to get one" smack

lol ^^^

Personally i prefer Xbox

And the Xbox 1 still has pretty good gameplay/graphics etc so i don`t see the point in rushing out to buy a 360 until they come down in price again. (gotta admit though i`m getting one for the kids for Chistmas lol)

Sure the ps has blueray, blah blahbut it has limited things out atm

You want blueray? buy a new dvd player (a quality one)
All "these 2 in one" machines ie:dvd/video players etc, i think are thrown together?

I prefer seperate units myself.
But thats just my opinion smile

Blu-ray may be doomed anyway, Paramount and Dreamworks have just dropped it in favour of HD-DVD to add to Universal in the HD-DVD camp.

See? there we go!

Hmmm, starting to look like a reoccurence of the doomed 3DO!

I remember my mate getting one of these and paying 500 quid or something stupid like that and it turned out to be a major fook up and total waste of money.

Lol, the CDi was just as bad...

As was the Sega Saturn, but that was cos Sega of Europe didnt have a clue that Sega of Japan were working on the Saturn and were busy spending millions promoting the Mars too heavily, Sega Of America didnt have a clue Sega Of Japan were working on the Saturn and Sega of Europe were looking to the Mars, and were busy working on the Neptune, and Sega of Japan didnt have any idea about what they were doing on the Saturn to be honest, they ended up making it shit powerful, but too complicated to code for.

So whilst Sega of Europe were busy touting the failing Sega Mars and Sega of America had been working on the Sega Neptune, Sega of Japan had already finished the Sega Saturn and were ready for a worldwide release, so they slapped both Sega of America and Sega of Europe and went ahead with the worldwide launch, thus dooming the Neptune and finishing off the failing Mars.

Lol, I love riddles.

The Mars was the 32x, the Neptune was the Mega Drive with a built in 32x, which hit the prototype stages before Japan announced the Saturn and put an end to it. Neither Europe or America knew that Japan was working on the Saturn, and so therefore they thought the 32x was the future, but in reality it was just a temporary fix to offer 32bit technology until the Saturn came out, but Japan didnt have the courteousy to inform Europe and America of this fact lol.

Also, it was supposed to be the Nintendo PlayStation... but just as Sony announced it at a press conference alongside Nintendo, Nintendo found something in the contract that they didnt like and tore the contract up.

Bet they kicked themselves for that one during the 32bit N64 years lol.

Actually, the Genesis was the US version of the Mega Drive, it was the Mega Drive in the EU and Asia.

They also had the Mega CD, 32X, WonderMega, Genesis 3, X-Eye, CDX, Multi-Mega, Nomad, LaserActive, TeraDrive and MSX... and they were only during the Mega Drive generation looooooooooool - and were all incidently either versions of, or addons to the Mega Drive!
