Got the Xbox 360 Pro Console at a special price of S$450 at Funan’s Challenger, the usual price is S$669 Thanks so much for Ian for the help he given in this. I think a couple of us who went to the Xbox 360 2nd Anniversary Private Party held early this month also bought it at that price. I think I am the first one to collect it though.
