Hi, i know Game have some offers on where you buy a console you get games at reduced prices... but you would have to check because deals change very often.
My brother has just bought one from very.co.uk at £199.00, 20% off your 1st order, £2.95 next day delivery and 0% on the 1st 3 months.
It really depends on your own budget.
If you have up to £140-£170 then you will be limited to the Xbox 360 4GB. About £160 includes a game
If you have up to £190-£220 then you could get the Xbox 360 250GB. About £215 includes a game
If you have up to £290-£360 Then you could go for the full Kinect bundle. But that is something that's only worthwhile if it's something he'd be into.
There are other sorts of bundles as various retailers throw in the odd extra like HDMI cables or extra controllers and so on, but the above is in general a fairly close guide as to what you can expect to pay.
My recommendation is getting the Xbox 360 250GB with a game for around £215 (give or take a few quid). If he wants the Kinect motion sensor, it's something that can be bought later as an accessory.
Fantastic summary by Cmdr3.
If you want to know where to look for the deals, Google Shopping is always a good place to start. Use the price guide from Cmdr3 to find the deal you're after.
All main sellers including dabs will appear in the search, as well as some smaller online retaillers.
I would agree, unless he specified he wanted Kinect, you might be better off spending the money on a bigger hard drive for more music and downloads! You can always buy Kinect later.
