    To my knowledge, student discounts don't tend to apply to consoles.

    I'd suggest just looking for a good bundle, though I can't immediately suggest where's best. Have you tried looking at online stores first to see what they offer? The sort of places I'd think to try are Amazon, Game, Play, Gameplay, HMV...

    I was going to say this too but wasn't sure neither. Student discount don't apply on hardware.

    ShopTo is very good.

    Which is why, you need a job in a place which sells consoles! Staff discount ftw!

    I got my PS3 Slim for £170 just after release, bargin.


    Moving on

    Ive been half considering a PSP myself, i just cant justify the money for it. I hardly play my DS, and whenever i go on trips home, or long journeys, my iphone seems to do fine for things like games and films. I dont really want full games on a hand held i guess, just something i can pick up, **** around on for an hour, then forget about it.

    Nope, I had 7 in my starting squad when I first started UT. :dry: I have 5 spanish players now. :awesome:

    Edit:
    Yeah you're right, bronze players aren't worth selling. :dry:
    Bronze players never sell, unless they are the "rare" ones, then they go for like 10k+ :eek:

    Also, if you have enough coins, i will recommend some players for you:

    Djibril Cissé (Panathinaikos) - Can pick him up for about 700 coins. Great pace, shooting is great as well. Can more or less score in every game.

    Jermaine Jenas - Get him for around 400 coins. Fast, good shooting power & great at freekicks.

    Kranjcar - All round great CAM, will boost your Chemistry when on the left. Get him for around 250-500 coins

    Wayne Bridge - Solid LB, will also boost your chemistry. Get him for around 200-400 coins

    Gomes (GK) - Great Goalie for your team, will boost the chemistry in defence. 250-500 coins (maybe a bit more)

    Salvador Cabanas - Striker, shooting is great, pace is good, same as Cisse, can more or less score from most positions at about 25-30 yard. 250(ish) coins

    Falcao (ST - Porto) - Great player, again, another that will bang them in with ease.

    John O'Shea - Solid RB, will boost your Chemistry. 200-600 coins.

    All Gold players.

    Also, there is no point in buying "packs" as you get absolutely crap players, unless you buy like 6-7 packs in one go. Best to just get players on the marketplace



    The trophies will then start pouring in!

    Looks damn good. All you need is a decent manager with +3 contracts & that would push you up to about 92 chemistry :yy: Try Sir Alex or Rafa Benitez

    Seeing your squad, you would probably only need O'Shea (or Zabaleta) as RB, would be perfect.

    Not sure why Johnson is so much, he's not even that good in the game, always running forward & leaving your defence on one side exposed

    Apart from the bronze one, that is a good squad you hsve :yy:

    I had David moyes but he doesn't favour 4-4-2, only Martin Jol (IIRC) favoured this formation. :holmes:

    Very nice :yes:

    Did you get them on the market?

    Torres is always a stupidly high price, like 200k. Saw Cesc for 15k BIN Earlier, was very tempted.

    This is mine at the moment. I have 3 of my best players injured & out for 4-5 games. Kuyt is a beast up front on his own, but it's usually Defoe, due to his pace. With Defoe up front, i have found it quite easy to beat other players online by 2-3 goals. Love it.

    Does having a manager increase chemistry? :holmes:

    Obviously I'd like more freedom of player nationality without reducing chemistry.

    Yes it does. As long as you play in his favoured formation.

    But you can get cards that change his formation to your one.

    I see... I imagine that would be a rare card. :holmes:

    Will have to look for Martin Jol. :ninja:
