Xbox One S 500GB with minecraft and Forza 3 Horizon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01N0J3MYD/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_G77oybNVT7TKF

CHOOSE GLOBAL PRIORITY SHIPPING - price is lower for some reason

Landed in NZ for $350

I actually ended up cancelling my original order of the minecraft bundle and getting [url=http://amzn.eu/aXpIM8Z]this one[/url] instead.

 

 

 

Landed in NZ for $399. Well chuffed with that!

 

 

 

UPDATE: It's now showing as "currently unavailable" though, not sure why or if maybe they'll reinstate it later...

Understood, thanks - I had forgotten that VAT is removed.  Very close to the threshold for GST etc

Sorry, that price references the one I ended up buying - a 500GB console with FIFA 17, Forza 3 Horizon and Rise of The Tomb Raider all for $399 so I basically paid an extra NZD$50 to get FIFA 17 instead of minecraft plus ROTTR... fiddy bucks well spent imho...

Yep, now costs NZD$395.23 delivered for the Minecraft/Forza 3 bundle. Not as great a deal but still works out over NZD$100 cheaper than buying local

Mine is still in my cart at 229 pounds, but equates to $349.41 NZD including shipping today.

 

Minecraft + Forza package deal.

 

 

 

I want, the price is good too, but the damn thing still doesn't look to play H.265/HEVC files directly from a shared folder on my PC.

 

If I have to use an App on my PC to convert or re- encode and stream on the fly, then I can't see any major benefits to upgrading here, which is disappointing.

Would this have any disc region issues?

We are in the same location as the UK for Bluray

 

You shouldn't be using DVD's

 

UK is 240V/50Hz also.
