120GB Xbox 360 Elite Console £148.94 @ Sainsbury's

Yep, you read that right, you can currently pick up a Xbox 360 Elite with a 120 GB hard drive for just under £150 now, courtesy of Sainsbury's. Traditionally priced more towards the more expensive end of the £150-200 price bracket, Sainsbury's have dropped the price on this console by £40 from their usual RRP to just £159.99. However, you can knock a further £15 off of the price with a little voucher code, meaning that, once you've factored in the delivery price, you'll be able to snaffle up one of Microsoft's obsidian radiators for £148.94.

Voucher Code: 6S2Q-24HD-4ULV

Discount: £15 off any order over £150

Remember to enter the voucher code at the checkout to take the price from £163.94 delivered down to £148.94!

The box will include the usual cables and manuals, you'll net yourself a black controller, a headset and a year's general warranty (not to be confused with the expanded warranty specifically for the dreaded Red Ring of Death), but don't expect an HDMI cable - you'll still have to buy that separately.

You're always in for a bit of pot luck whenever you buy an Xbox 360 online, because essentially you're playing lucky dip with your motherboard. In general, though, Elites break a lot less than the old Pros used to. If you're really lucky you might just pinch a console made from 2009 onwards that comes with the shiny new Jasper board, which tends to break a lot less and uses less power.

All in all, though, if you've been holding out on nabbing yourself an Xbox then this is the perfect deal to get you started.

Good bit of info at the end there about picking up a 2009+ model. I've been thinking of getting a 360 for a while now, but obviously RROD put me off. At least now I know how to improve it's chances. Still, I might be more tempted with somewhere I can buy an extended warrentee.

@ Brendan Griffiths

Microsoft give a completely FREE pick up and deliver to your door 3 year extended warranty against the RROD, you don't need to pay a penny.

Are you are getting confused with the PS3 that is only guaranteed for 1 year against the YLOD ?.

The man below doth speak the truth. The three year extended warranty against the RROD is pretty damn good (fundamentally necessary, mind you, but you don't have to pay anything), the one year one is for everything else....although aside from my own domestic console violence (see below) I've never encountered any other issues.

When my first 360 died, three red lights blinking in my arms, it was just before they introduced the 3 year warranty. I was pretty pissed off. But by then I'd already refurbished, resold and picked up a 60 GB Falcon model, that I then promptly broke by dropping it, although at least that one was in warranty.

Microsoft are significantly better now than they used to be....although a 360 slim wouldn't go amiss.

Didn't know that. So when Game are trying to flog a three year insurance thing, it's only really needed for accidental damage or non-RROD problems.

No not confused with YLOD. Only effects something like half a % of all PS3's anyway. *Looks nervously over at ps3*

No disrespect but This tells me that I do not want to hear anymore you say.

No problem, just going off the consensus of friend's opinions and general online complaints about both consoles. There's not really any arguing about the propertional comparisons though in PS3's favour. I know that sounds one sided, just saying is all.

However, for any 360/PS3 gamer, having their console die on them through a production problem is completely unacceptable!

*and by propertional I meant "proportional" *blushes ham fisted keyboard skills*

Agree, anyone who thinks the YLOD is comparable to the RROD problem is clearly deluded.
