    OK, just a thought here.

    Before research, I figured that the arcade bundle was just a 360 pro without the hard drive (which I found out later to be wrong)

    so i calculated:

    XBOX360 Arcade Bundle = AU$278 at BIG W
    XBOX360 20GB Hard Drive= AU$80 inc. postage off eBay (Link Here)
    = AU$358 where the 360 Pro retails for AU$499

    but further research indicates that:
    - The Arcade doesnt include a Live Headset, or Ethernet Cable

    so then...

    Bit of CAT5 cable from your local $2 shop = AU$2
    Live Headset off eBay = AU$16 (Link Here)

    That means a 360 Pro (+5 Arcade Games) costs AU$376...

    Do take note that both of the eBay auctions are from reputable eBay sellers and there are both from Australia NOT Hong Kong.

    Am I right or am I just stupid?

    Your correct. But xbox live will soon take the total up a little bit. 12 months = AU$ 79.95

    or maybe you can get a bit cheap on eBay like i did.

    Yeah, but the Pro doesnt come with 12 months Live, either.

    So youd have to pay that with the Pro as well.

    EDIT: oh yes and as for finding a cheap 360 on ebay, I dont trust ebay with used 360 consoles, i fear i would get it then turn it on and get the rrod

    Yeah you have got a point. Just giving you a warning [​IMG]

    Anyways, it does seem like you are correct, does that mean your getting one?

    I'll see you online.

    I'm looking for a 360 myself... and came across this site with the awesome deal for a 360.

    360 pro = AU$ 285. http://www.ecogamer.com/content/view/769/6/

    But the thing is... that deal ended yesterday...
    The process of achieving that price tag is done via trade-in deals... so they exploit the living crap out of them [​IMG]

    Me hopes for more deals like these. [​IMG]

    Haha, well the thing is...

    A few weeks back I was with a few mates in my local BIGW and we were kicked out and banned for life (supposedly) for acting like dickheads, which I now deeply regret, because nowhere has a 360 as cheap.

    Perhaps I can use the "Seen it cheaper, we'll match it" thingo at EB Games
