The elite will sell out and alot of people are going to make some serious money on ebay, especially when it launches in the uk. At least all the :censored: that tried it with the ps3 flopped :D The elite will be in demand due to them not supplying enough.

I know this is a silly question but, will you be getting one? :D

If my 360 breaks, then i'll be picking it up, so I guess it's a yes then as I know my current 360 will never last me the length of the consoles life span.

I don't think there is a die shrink with the CPU, the comparison pics show the CPU to be identical in size but there have been other revisions to the motherboard which has happened with most consoles released in the past and present.

$5,000 being the current bid is a bit crazy, but I still don't see the point in anyone buying an Elite either off Ebay or in a store.

It also has a revised CPU that uses less power.

I want to know if the Elite is quieter, if so I want one.

Its the Hitachi (not BenQ) DVD drive. Massively missed oppotunity for MS to quieten the 360. Huge mistake IMO.

Youre essentially paying for a HDMI port in that whole package... the larger drive should be available seperately soon... the Elite is a big dud as far as Im concerned.

I beleive they will still do a proper revision and make it quiet as well as giving it HDMI as standard.
The HDD is interchangeable so it should be sold as a separate soon enough.

The revision should include the smaller CPU and quieter fan system. Or even some sort of water cooling.

Either that or just wait for the next console!
