Thanks for that.  How is the Star Wars one different?  DS just said it is sounds it makes when you turn it on and off? Is this all?

EB games have 360g for $299
Connect $150
but wont do laybye for this special.

I want to laybye and be able to store it somewhere.  Surely Kmart or somewhere will have it on sale.

I enquired at JB Hi-fi and they said no layby's unless it's a big ticket item: eg tv's, stereo systems etc..

shame really.

EB games do the 360gb and the connect for $399.. i'm undecided if i want to change from the $299 deal.. hehe.

Thanks EB said I couldnt laybye on a special like that and they told me princeza $299 for 360gb and $150 for connect.  Who gave you this $399 price are you in Sydney or is this a new special this week??  Will go and check out their website now.

OK just checked EB $399 is for the 250gb that would be ok if I can get them to laybye it but it only comes with 1 game too.

This is just all too hard lol

Yes, just go to their website.. And there will be a page with some titles at the top.. click on ''xbox'' and scroll down until you see consoles (down the page) and you will see ''xbox 250gb with kinect $399.''
