It's my Birthday in the next few weeks, I've got a $900 Krudd cheque burning a hole in my pocket so I've decided to splurge and buy me an XBOX 360, there are some very good deals out ATM and would like some advice of which to get...

Option 1 (http://www.ebgames.com.au/xbox/product.cfm?id=12802&refer=consoles)
XBOX 360 Pro Console

Option 2 (http://www.ebgames.com.au/xbox/product.cfm?id=14719&refer=consoles)

Option 3 (http://www.ebgames.com.au/xbox/product.cfm?id=6916&refer=consoles)

Depends on what you want I suppose...
Option 1 for multiplayer
Option 2 if you like B-movies
Option 3, I'd go for that because of Fable 2. You know all 360's now have HDMI? My recently purchased Arcade has it too.

The GH games are fun. However they aren't much a reason to buy a console.

Option 2 (http://www.ebgames.com.au/xbox/product.cfm?id=14719&refer=consoles)
XBOX 360 Pro Console
GoW
GoW2
Farcry 2
$449

This is a FANTASTIC bundle. All 3 are great games and if you haven't played them yet at a friend's house or something, they will have you entertained for hours.

Option 3 (http://www.ebgames.com.au/xbox/product.cfm?id=6916&refer=consoles)
XBOX 360 Elite Console
Fable 2
Halo 3
Ghost Recon
HDMI Cable
$547


Great choice as well, however if you arent getting Xbox Live, Fable 2 will get old quick, and so will Halo 3. Ghost Recon is too old to be bundled in there.




Personally, I would go with #2.
Are you getting Xbox Live? Thats an important part in your decision. Option 2 would be like 50% more appealing with Xbox Live.

Personally I'd go with 3 however I'm off put by the price jump. However...

1. you get the Elite with the bigger HDD, and with the new dashboard you are going to want space to install your games to the HDD improving the efficiency of your machine (run's better, quieter, cooler)

2. You don't get the optional optical out port cable with anything but the Elite, and that thing is €50 on it's own. I could never get audio passthrough from my 360 to TV back to Amplifier via HDMI / SPDIF working correctly and the only way for me was going directly from the 360, and using the cable (or you'll end up having to hack to bits an AV cable)

3. Personally I found the games better in pack three. THey are my taste and at least I've finished the ones listed there :D Ghost Recon is old, but I'm assuming you get GRAW2 ?

You know all 360's now have HDMI? My recently purchased Arcade has it too.

Yep but only the Elite comes with the HDMI cable, and the optical out breakout box. ;)

Hi guys, thanks for the posts I am considering getting 2 or 3 but no HDMI cable in the option 2 is a little bit of a turn off considering I have a 42" Sharp Aquos which I really want to make good use of.

I do know that all XBOX 360 now come with HDMI out but not all the pack contain an HDMI cable which I would love to be a part of the package because they aren't cheap in Australia...

go to monoprice.com and get a cable there, i'm sure they ship to aussie. But, i would go with option 3 anyway because of the bigger HDD, because they are EXPENSIVE and fill up very fast.....anyway, good luck and have fun!

Option 2 looks pretty nice. You'll be playing Far Cry for hours, and GoW is great (If you didn't already know that...)
