    Xbox

    Thinking of buying an Xbox but there seems to be so many. I thought they were half the price of a PS3. Anyone give me a hand? I want the cheapest possible package, with WiFi and HDMI.

    I have a PS3, but thinking of getting an Xbox for MW3 as all my mates will be playing it on it.

    I've looked at the xbox elite 225 and the xbox premium 120. (Whats the diff???)

    Some advice would be appreciated!

    Get the premium one at 120, the elite hardly has any differences, the main ones are inbuilt wifi, bigger hard drive and its black! Get the premium it;ll do everything you want for MW3 and all now have HDMI.

    The cheapest does not include a hard drive, instead it has 4GB of Flash. I would recommend getting the Premium as well, and an extended warranty.

    No it will not have wifi, you will need the wifi adapter which is about 50 i think??, it will need to be cabled.

    Don't think the older 'fat' type models have Wifi built in, there's an ethernet port or a neat wifi add-on.

    Ended up getting it for 124.00 after trade-in and family member staff discount!


    Someone managed to get a PS3 with 2 copies of FIFA12 from Sainsburys yesterday for 114 (error on promotion, but fixed now though )

    hell of a lot quieter and wifi built in (says someone who cables it anyway) i believe its also possible to shove your own hdd in these fairly easily as its just a 2.5" sata drive in the back
