Well, looks like Newegg.com has the FF 13 360 bundle for only 250 bucks. Thats right, you get a jasper elite in white, 2 controllers, a headset, a 250gb HDD and a copy of FF 13 for only 250 bucks. Honestly, if you dont care about Wifi, this is a hell of a deal and maybe even a better one then the new 300 dollar 360S. However, the new redesign 360 still might be a bit more failure proof then the jaspers, however I think the jasper would be quite fine. plus I believe these still have thr full 3 year warranty. Plus, if you want your console in white with a 250 gb HDD, this is like your only choice short of buying a Arcade unit and buyinga  seperate 250gb HDD. What do you think? Is this a better deal then the new redesign 360?

Define better. Better as in more content  yes, but I wouldn't buy a 360 today that wasn't the slim-version, no matter the price. But hey. that might just be me.

I'd never buy a console with a picture on it. Especially not FF13.
 
I'd go with the S for 50$ more.

I hate FF, so no. This is a great deal for someone actually interested in the game though.

I'd avoid any model based on that motherboard design, even if it's the newest revision, lower die size, "fail proof" type (because I've still heard of them failing).
 
There's a reason Microsoft hired a new board designer for the slim model.
