I am always amused by the old people in my poundland store asking the Asian staff how much everything is and being told "Thats a pound" to everything  :D

Be interesting to see if the HDMI cables and the audio cables are any good?

No problem with the HDMI cable I got from there. Its a digial signal so should not really be a problem.

Plugs fit in nice and solid in the back of the TV and Xbox.

You mean the quality of the conductors and the cable assembly has no effect on a digital signal??!?

But but ... I hear things....

I mean... the right power cord is essential... I myself only use these:

Went to Poundland this morning. They had nothing that was listed in the offer, either they sold out or never had the stuff to start with
:(

My son went to our local poundland, asked about the wheels and guns, was told they only had 2 in and sold both.
