not really. most actually prefer the matte finish on the 4gb, as it keeps fingerprints off of it. still comes with a wireless controller, too IIRC.

Is there any disadvantage to buying a 4GB model and dropping a 250GB hard drive into it? Other than the outside finish?


Go with the matte finish, the 250 GB console scratches if you just put a controller on top of it. I envy my sons 4GB console with the 250 GB HDD. I wish I could sell my 250 GB console and get the 4GB w/250 GB HDD and not be out anything. When you look at the storage devices it shows the 4GB & 250 GB separately so you actually get more storage, although not much.

Crysis 2 already dropping. Good thing I waited.


Think I should bite on Crysis 2 or wait for 39.99 price range?? Hmmm

Hdd will fill up fast. 4gb is definitely not enough.
I have a 120 and its just about full. So many great arcade games and dlc on live.

Can't you install games to an outside party flashdrive/external harddrive up to 16 gb on the 360? That should cover most games, right?


Yes, but some things do require a hard drive. Halo Reach co-op for example (though they might be fixing that eventually). Also, I'm not sure if original xbox games will work without a hard drive. See the reviews on Amazon for some discussion on this.

Think this is the older 360 controller or the newer silver one with the improved d-pad?

The Gearfest promo is hit or miss with Best Buy. I checked if they were participating over the weekend, which they were. The site showed the Reach controller for $39.99 and the Quick Charge kit for $19.99. That was about 4 a.m. Sunday. Went into my normal BB around 5 p.m. The controller was 59.99 and the quick kit was 29.99. Had a guy check into it, site showed the same. I told him about Gearfest, he looked online and saw it. Even checked the other retailers, saw the discounted prices. Wouldn't PM. Ended up pulling out my phone and checked their app. Showed the 39.99/19.99 prices. Got those PM'd.
I really hate BB anymore...

Edit:
I know this is for the new ad but Gearfest has been going on for almost a week now.

So is Amazon likely to PM the $50 GC with the 4GB deal? No tax is always nice, and I know the site tends to PM at least the BR/DVD sale prices week after week, so I'm hopeful that that will extend to the GC deal.

...Also, I've got a plan worked out that should net me the system and a 250GB HD for $50 out of pocket, but only through Amazon. :bouncy:

Anyone wanna explain to me how bonus points and being a rz gamers club work? So when you get a 360 you'll get 200 points + extra for tax for being a regular member then you'll get a gift card for 5$ since you spent it on gaming hardware since you spent at least $150 because of the gamers club. Then there's also the free 50$ gift card?

Cool, I was thinking it had a wired contoller. A wireless controller makes this a better deal after all.

You were probably just thinking about the old packages. That was a distinguishing factor of the old Pro vs Arcade (or whatever they used to call the arcade model).

I think so as well if my memory serves me correctly.
lol thats to funny man.. figures..

I'm pretty sure Bust a move universe's msrp is only 29.99 so Tru's jacking up the price then giving you your money back as a giftcard lol.


Thanks rjer is that for all kmarts or is it an online deal?

Kmart is selling the uDrawing tablet with 1 game free this week. It's in THIS weeks flyer - not for next week.

I thought a long time about buying this for my 2 young sons but then realized if they want to draw on the Wii just point at the screen and draw, why buy a tablet? The Wiiware demo for Max and the Purple Crayon emphasizes this.Posted Image

Once small difference is the 4GB model doesnt have the wired headset that the 250GB has.

If Amazon were on top of things they would price match this deal in advance so that I could order it now and get it by Sunday. For $13 of tax I'm just going to pick it up on Sunday at BB.

MIGHT be in for Crysis, but I'd hope Amazon price matches so I can use gift cards from there on it.
Ok then, knuckle up.

could've price matched bulletstorm for $40 from kmart last week or the week before. Socom 4 and/or MK will drive down bulletstorm/MvC3 prices or envoke sales mid-April.

you'll get 199 reg. RZ points total(248 if you a RZ silver member) the $150 spent on gaming won't apply to consoles.

Will admit a $49 MvC3 is still attractive. Who am I kidding, I just need to go get it now.

BB has a price match policy I would think you could go to customer service with your receipt and get the gift card.

On a side note: If you have the old massive hard drive: I picked up the Slim hard drive case off Buy.com for $7 something with shipping. It looks pretty decent and beats buying a new $100 drive!

Kay thank you very much. Anyone know if you can buy the 360, get the gift card, return the 360 and use the gift card to buy it again?


NO. That is attempted fraud...

Best bet is to buy the 360 and use the gift card towards the purchase of the 250GB hard drive.

I hope I'm not misinterpreting this, but how does buying a hard drive case beat buying a hard drive? Won't you just have a hard drive case with no hard drive inside?

On-topic, I still hope Amazon PMs the 4GB deal; I've been dying to finish DS2 ever since my original 360 got the E74 error (caused by the GPU, not the A/V cable). :cry:
