Actually, at the moment Xboxes are going for $228 at Dick Smiths in Woden, and 
I believe $218 at Big W.  (The sign was price sign at Big W was missing, and 
the shop assistant was not too sure.)

I could not resist and bought one (at the $228 since I didn't go to Big W till 
after), but since the RRP is over $300, I'm not too fussed.

Unfortunately I wont have time to tinker with it for a couple of weeks.
