    I prefer the deal that puts a console on par with both £179 and £450 consoles, and an £80 DS. BUILT IN WIFI.

    Whilst not 'cheap', this deal from Blockbuster is certainly the best value for money deal I've seen going on this holiday:
    -Xbox 360 Premium
    -Tom Clancy Splinter Cell: Double Agent
    -Pro Evolution Soccer 6
    -Gears Of War
    -Project Gotham Racing 3

    ...all for £349.99. Pretty good if you ask me.

    I think it's pretty much the same, apart from I'm sure the Xtravision has an extra controller bundled in too :confused: .

    The only other deal that could potentially beat it for value for money at the moment I think is the Play.com deal where you get a premium 360 and Gears of War for 269.99.

    Good luck finger! Pity the brain doesn't know about Opera :p
    Just kidding mate. but if memory serves there is an auto-refresh timer thing built into it. Might save a finger muscle or 2!

    Yeah but would you trust it? They don't usually support refresh times of milliseconds anyway. Seconds can be way too long!! :p

    So, what are the odds that Amazon's site gets hammered tomorrow?

    Amazon.co.uk started erroring yesterday when 2200 Wiis were presold in 2 minutes. Amazon.com's selling 1000 Xbox's and will probably sell out in 1 second!! I hope they have good servers!!

    Eh, I wouldn;t trust something like this to a computer program. Sure, computers can do things like launch rockets and operate satellites in space but none of that is as important as my $100 360! :eek: :D

    ( I know I won't get it but at least I can try! )

    I'm gonna try and get my dad to buy me one, and I just pay him back when I get paid next week, that way, I can at least try to save 200...

    Though I'd probably take it to my job and see if they'd let me then trade it up for a Premium 360. :D

    Heh. Its 10:54am and I've been refreshing for the past half an hour. The page is starting to get reallllly slow and refreshes are taking longer and longer. Don't know how long amazon's servers are going to hold up, if it all.

    Actually I just hit refresh and the screen went white. Uh Oh. It just took a full 30 seconds to reload the page. 6 minutes to go!

    I gave it a try. A page refresh took several minutes, I had six windows open all timed slightly differently and they sold out. Didn't even have the chance to click on a button!

    Eh. Oh well. Both Safari and Firfox have refused to refresh for the last 5 or 6 minutes. Now I'm curious how many people were at the site. I wonder if Amazon will post something like that...

    Their site is still gettin owned. I refreshed at exactly 1:00, it took a few seconds to come up. I click the get this deal button, I expected it to ask for my password since it said it would, but since I was logged in it didnt.

    Since I was expecting that, I clicked the first yellow button I saw. Luckily the site was getting hammered, because it was actually the question page. So I had to answer the question quickly (15+2) and then check the agree to terms and click the yellow button again.... It was intense....

    Nice!

    I STILL can't get through; I hit refresh at exactly 11am and now 9 minutes later it still hasn't loaded.

    EDIT: Just got through: sold out :(
