    Not sure whether this is just in Ireland, but....

    Trade in either a GBA SP + 4 games or DS / PS2 / PSP + 4 games

    and get an Xbox 360 Core for €99 (£65) or Premium for €199 (£135)


    That's a great bargain. I have an old GBA-SP so I'm getting a spare Core 360 for €99 and hopefully it will be one with a quieter drive :D

    Whoa! I would so do that.

    Haha though... GBA SP and 4 games or PSP and 4 games. Not exactly fair on the PSP is it!

    Why can't we have deals like that :( damn.

    LOL.. I know..

    What would you get for an old GBA-SP + 4 games normally ? €30-40 ?

    This trade-in gives them a value of €200 :eek: :D

    I just couldnt pass this up for the price.

    I feel like going down to cash converters and buying an old second hand GBA SP with 4 of the cheapest games they have.

    €99 = $130US
    €199 = $261US

    That's a great deal if I could sell the Xbox 360 for a profit, but it's probably not in the states. I've never really liked the Xbox (360).

    OK so I got my old GBA SP - scratched to hell,

    4 games including Crash Bandicoot without a case

    and I took them in. No problem. €99 core console is mine

    But I also had 2 PSP games (vice city & liberty city stories) that I never play, so I traded them in too and I got a trade in bonus ? what for I don't know, but I got €60 for them.

    So in the end my spare Core 360 cost €39.99 or $50 or £25 :D :D

    BARGAINTASTIC !!! I'm delighted, and yes. It's much much quieter than my other 360. It's about the same volume loudness wise as my PS3.

    Wow. Unfortunately I both gave away my PS2 with a raft of games, plus bought an Xbox 360 just a few weeks ago or I'd have availed of this and saved myself hundreds.

    On another note, Gamestop seem to have added the Cork store to their site now, wasn't there the last time I looked. Thanks for the heads-up.

    Oh the drive reading is noticeably different from my launch 360. It's seem to be faster ?

    My mate in our xbox live clan, heard it from someone who knew someone who worked in a gamestop.

    They are not even advertising it on there special offers on their website :rolleyes: So I wasnt even sure if it was real, until I rang my local one and asked the manager "did they have an offer on the 360 at the moment" and he then told me..

    Nah, we just get the consoles weeks/months before Europe, the good games first, and we don't get shafted on the price in the first place. :D

    Sorry, (EU) guys.
