I bit on the gold pack. I figure I can trade the game in for something I would enjoy more, or keep it since I have no dedicated racing games in my library. Thanks for the heads up, my friend!

You forgot to add that the text pad/messenger controller add-on also comes with this pack.

Neither do I but I figure it won't hurt having a backup in case mine breaks. Or also handy for when a friend is over and we're playing online multiplayer. Think I'm gonna bite on this one. Thanks for the heads up!!

You'll likely get a dollar or two...so don't make your decision based on getting a great return on that.

How was PGR 4 received? I don't remember hearing much about it.

Last time I traded one in (a few weeks ago) the tiv was at $5. Not great but better than the buck I was expecting.

If you're a fan of the series then I think you would enjoy this. Check out gamespot's review: http://www.gamespot....ing4/index.html

$5 isn't too bad.

This item is $56... let's break it down

$5 headset
$5 PGR4 (approx value)
$40 12 month membership (usually $45 on amazon but have seen as low as $40 from a reputable source)
$10 coupon
$20 chatpad

so about $80 worth of stuff for $56. hmmmm....

Good breakdown. I almost pulled the trigger, then noticed that NY gets charged tax...deal breaker for me.

Crap, I JUST bought an Xbox 360 Arcade from them a few days ago. Time to call them and see if I can get my free game.

Nice work. Pretty decent savings in my eyes.

I played the hell out of PGR 2 one summer when I was sans cable. I liked it OK except for those damn cone challenges. Almost ruined the game for me. But I do need a racer and this deal probably beats paying $40 for Midnight Club LA.

I was never a fan of PGR4(or the series in general), but the year of Live and the Chat pad make this offer pretty tempting

I bought an arcade the other day with the console coupon and tried to stack the free game with it, but it would not work. So I am interested if anyone can get it to work or calls after the console has shipped and is able to get the game.

^ I got rhythm heaven and blue dsi deal to stack with the coupon :) I think this would work similarly

Wonder if this is the best chance to use the $75 amazon coupon...or wait for something better.

I ordered an XBox 360 arcade on July 3rd. I just saw yesterday, that the promotion had started. I e-mailed Amazon support, and told them I didn't know about the promotion, I ordered it before July 11th, and I just didn't add it to the cart at the time of purchase (which are the requirements of the promotion). They e-mailed me back and told me that since my console had already shipped, for me to make a separate purchase of banjo kazooie, and send another help request with the order number and re-explaining the situation. The purchase price of banjo was waived. Amazon e-mail support is awesome and fast.

The messenger pack is 20% off but why does the amazon xbox live store say $20 dollars off in the text on the right hand side (the picture shows 20% off). Someone might try to contact amazon to get the $20 dollars off like advertised.

Jumped on the messenger pack. My XBL subscription expires in 2 weeks, and this is a much better deal than the $50 auto-renew.
If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour... you're gonna see some serious shit.

Got the gold pack. My gold is up sometime soon, not sure exactly when, and I don't have a chat pad, plus the $10 is always useful. This will be somewhere between my 3rd and 5th headset, however... PGR4 is decent, not as good as 3, but I've already played through it anyway...

I had to stop myself on the gold pack. I already have over three years worth of Live subs, tons of points, a chat pad, many headsets, and PGR4.
It's such a good deal though and player 2 could have chat pad and LAN-up PGR4. ;-)

Looks like someone noticed quick, because it now says 20% off again.

How often do people use their chatpad? Is it a worthy accessory?

I bought a chatpad from MS's version of EPP. I used it a ton when I first got it. I took it off when a friend used the controller and forgot to put it back on. Maybe this will get me to put it back on now. (probably not though)

Also the Messenger pack is back up to $59.99 (only 14% off now)

~blonde moment edit. The $59.99 is from J&R. You have to change to Amazon if you're buying.
