Oops, the store is JB Hi-Fi.

Jaspers will have "12.1A" as the power configuration written to the left of the serial number, the power plug that connects to the back of the 360 will be plastic coated instead of the previous models metal coating. The power brick will also have ventilation slots across the top where as the older brick only had ventilation at the ends.


The older bundle was still advertised in the store I went to so providing your local jb has stock you should be cool. It will be up to you to make sure you get a jasper. Ask to look in the box, my local store manager had no issues with this, if your lucky you can move the 360 around in the box slightly (without opening the box) so the serial number is more visible through the "peep holes".

Set up my jasper yesterday big improvement over my 06 model that never gave me any issues so I feel a little guilty retiring it, still it will find a new home soon enough.


Thanks for the heads up. :)

Dark Sector is an amazing game and shouldn't be missed for this price, the ps3 version is also cheap.

Runs on Unreal 3 engine, still graphically relevant
Banned in Australia due to excessive realistic gore
Well made to the point it never needed a single patch
Edgy well executed sci fi atmosphere
You 'level' through out the game, leading to some of the best special abilities I've seen in a action game
Like gears of war with more agility and special abilities

Anyone that does pick up a copy on 360 add me to you're friends list so we play some online death match, I'm all for boosting the achievements online also. Given the games age its pretty much dead online.

LIVE : Snake Inthe boX (attach message "dark sector" so I know who you are)

Dark Sector can still be traded in at most EB stores for about $35 also.

I picked up two pre-loved PS3 sixaxis controllers in the 2 for $50 sale at EB Games today for a total of $39 with 12 month warranty.

Sign up a friend and you can use a webmail 15% discount voucher on top of the $50 deal.

Not sure if this has been posted before, but the hut have Valkyria Chronicles for 24.73 GBP (with delivery = 27.08 GBP ~ 57 AUD )!!
I reckon this is one of the best PS3 games from last year.
And considering that the availability is pretty much limited in Australia, this is quite a bargain.
Go grab one if you don't have it yet!

I almost bought Valkyria Chronicles but the hutt has increased their shipping to Australia by over 70% in the space of around 5 weeks. Their postage rates are over twice the amount dvd.co.uk charge and I can't buy from the hutt again till I a get a reasonable response from my email justifying the massive increase in price (from a percentage perspective).

I loved the fact hutt and dvd.co kept it real in regards to shipping, amazon.uk is taking the pi$$ with their shipping.

Mass effect 2 dics special "platinum" edition cost approx $40au delivered from dvd.co.uk. Placed my order but they are still waiting on stock (official release 20/03/09).

Most likely $10au less than it will cost here, if its released.

Hi all. Off on a bit of a tangent to console games here, but has anyone noticed any interesting pre-order deals for The Sims 3 on PC?
