    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
