Xbox 360 4GB Bundle (WEP) | £149.99 | Argos | Xbox 360

  • What: Xbox 360 4GB Bundle (Wireless Entertainment Pack)
  • Current Price: £149.99
  • Where: Argos
  • Platforms & Price Comparison: Xbox 360

As bundles go this one seems to be a winner for all concerned. Included with the new slim Xbox 360 is an internal 4GB flash drive to download games and films on to, and by clicking on the first special deal you can add an extra wireless controller (which seem to be ever climbing in price) with a copy Lego Batman and Pure for no additional cost! And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, Toys R Us are doing two bundles, the first one here with Need For Speed: Undercover and Thrillville: Off The Rails for the same price, and another bundle here with Guitar Hero: Van Halen with guitar for ten pounds cheaper. Face it, you’re spoilt for choice you lucky, lucky rascals. Thanks to Chris197 @ Hot UK Deals!

Guitar Hero one definitely a safe bet if you're going to be getting into the music game scene. It's all about the controllers really...which one do you need more?

I'd probably flog the actual Van Halen game, mind.

It's not a 4GB Hard Drive, it's flash memory. They've basically soldered a memory stick to the motherboard. I'm not just here for the pedantry; it means that unless a patch is released to change what must be a hard-coded check for Console.HasHardDrive() to Console.HasInternalStorage(), you can't play Halo: Reach co-op or firefight online with the 4GB Slim model. :(

Excellent spot, now fixed.

The Arcade had similar problems with Halo 3 if I remember rightly, though that was down to the complete lack of space. On a personal level, I'm kinda stumped as to who exactly would buy a 4GB model considering that game saves these days are obscenely large - maps are flash-breaking.

That's not really the point, though. The sneakiness on show here, and the stubborn refusal to fix the issue or simply do what Sony have done and proclaim the Hard Drive king, is deplorable.

I bought a 4GB Slim the weekend before Reach came out because my 20GB Pro had just decided to red-ring on me after 3 faithful years of service. I didn't want to shell out for the 250GB storage because I hadn't even reached the limit on my 20GB hard drive (game saves aren't THAT big!) and I'd also bought a cheap 16GB USB stick to put DLC like Monkey Island onto. It works now that I've gone to the trouble of taking apart my old hard drive caddy and sticking the drive in the new Xbox Slim but for a lot of kids out there who have finally saved up their pocket money to buy an Xbox for Reach, they're going to be disappointed. It seems a bit shoddy and almost like they hadn't bothered testing all the features on all the new hardware configurations rather than a more ignorant money-saving exercise.

i think the main new thing for this (other than the new sexy black case) is the fact that it is kinect ready :D im just hoping kinect isnt a big disappointment :(
