    I think it's a really good price for the Elite. Though it makes the current price for 120GB HDD even more ridiculous. If they drop that price as well, then the price is a bit better to swallow.

    Its the black console, has a 120gb hd compared to the standard 20gb one, and includes an HDMI port and cable for a more updated audio/video connection.

    I've been wanting to get a 360, so even though its not much that price cut makes the Elite sweeter. Gonna have to save up.

    Until they start using their newer tech and better construction, they can throw all the price cuts and color schemes they want at me to no avail. Hmm, I wonder if this will ever happen?

    Does nobody keep receipts? Most places have 90 day return policies. At the very least 30 days.

    On electronics, it's usually 14 day return, 30 day price match. Six weeks means that person is s.o.l.

    TOO LITTLE!!!!

    But it does put the lie to those who said MS couldn't do any drop at all.

    The rumor at the moment is that this is similar to Sony's move, clearing out the current hardware so they can introduce the new consoles with the Falcon chipset (which is more reliable, quiter, cooler, and much cheaper to make) at which point a second drop will be announced some time in October.

    To be consistent, I said 2 drops in a short time would be bad for Sony, and I think it would be bad for MS. Whatever the facts, it appears to the consumer as desperation, and can be misconstrued as a console about to fail.

    Guess people should go to Wal-Mart or Target more often for these things.

    Target's in this area have the same policy. 14 Days for home electronics. Only reason I know that is because that's where I got my DS.

    And Wal Mart will return it without questions asked or receipts if you know what to tell them :D 

    I'm definitely getting an Elite now. 50$ bucks isn't a lot, but it's an extra game, so this is great news.
