My son wants an x-box the deal sounds good for £99.99 for an Arcade version, is this any good or is it worth waiting and saving for a Pro/Elite etc?

Although £99 is a great price for the Arcade (expecially if you start with a couple of 'classic' older games available around £10 each), they are more limited without a hard drive. I would recommend one of the Elite bundles available where you get a couple of free games and an extra controller - that's worth at least £50, and the hard drives are very expensive.

It depends on your budget and what you want to do. The memory will probably be enough to store a few save games, so as a pure games console it's great, however if you want to use it's multimedia functions, download demos/games and store films/games then I would go for the elite.
