We don’t know how long this will last but Amazon has cut the price on the Limited Edition of the Xbox 360 Super Elite, which ships with a huge 250GB hard drive, two black wireless controllers, Xbox 360 headset and a copy of Forza Motorsports 3 by almost £30 to the incredible low of £199.99. Game was matching Amazon at £229.97, so if you’ve been holding off buying a new Xbox 360 in the hope for an outstanding post-Christmas Xbox offer, it’s time to burn browser rubber and go, go, go!
This is an excellent deal while it lasts, this latest edition of the Xbox Elite we are told runs far more quietly than the original, as it has the last generation of lower-power components. While its HDMI output might not be the unique lure it used to be, the crowning glory is access to that huge 250GB hard drive. With download content now a vital part of everyone’s gaming life having as much room as possible is a must. Store more demos, download content, Xbox LIVE Arcade titles along with your own music collection and movies.
Throwing in two Xbox controllers is a great sweetener as you can get gaming with a friend straight away, while Forza Motorsport 3 is the icing on the cake. Coming from Microsoft itself it’s a classy racing game that almost as polished as the cars in the game itself, of which there’s a massive 400 to choose from.
If you can stop gawping at the stunning visuals for long enough there are over 100 real-world tracks to test your skills to the limits and beyond, thanks to the new Rewind feature that lets you undo crashes. Easily one of the most approachable racing games around it doesn’t skimp on the depth of gameplay with comprehensive tuning and upgrades available, along with a heap of online gaming modes. It is the perfect accompaniment to this most powerful of Xbox 360 consoles.
