im glad i got mine when i did.
Limit 5 per customer you eBay resellers! http://www.buy.com/prod/Xbo... Looks like the slow boat from China just docked...
they dont truly exist because microsoft cant make anything thats considered ELITE!!!! haha jk boys, had to drop by the open zone and make up something to fit in!!!
lol Lawman has been spam that real gamer for sure an xbot that is
I have a gift card to Circuit City and was going to buy an Elite console there. It's been more than 2 months now and they still don't have any, online or out of 3 local stores! Well, it looks like I'm not the only one wondering where they are....
I see them in my local Wal-Mart store all the time. Microsoft might be setting up for the X360 Ultimate SKU or whatever they have coming this year to match the new slim PS3 SKU launch.
Funny, I look for them when ever I'm in a store. The two always out of stock: Wii & Xbox 360 Elite. Including Walmart, and best buy.
@4.1 You know i been looking for awhile now myself. Im still yet to see the Xbox 360 Elite at any store i been todate. As for the Wii its the same thing, but somehow i got lucky 1 week after xmas a Wii was in at my Walmart. I had to grab it when the grabbing was good! Still looking for a Xbox 360 Elite though! Anyways this is just looking when im there its not a everyday thing. Its just so far it hasn't been there yet when im there.

Xbox 360 Elite System Sears Item # 05891056000 Ship this item instead. see similar items Out of Stock Out of Stock Out of Stock 3 closest stores...
on my country (portugal) it's the oposite... when they were launched i searched and searched and all were sold out, i had to bought a premium. now it's everywhere ehehe. talk about bad luck
i work at best buy we dident have any sense chritmas or the halo addition only arcade and pros and on prod we dont get any elite return or arcades only the pros come back with the ring of death.so the elite is the way to go it cost more but you wont have to look over your shoulder woundering when will it die on you.ohh ps3 have hardware issue 2 we benn send alot of ps3 back latley to the 40 ones
Learn how to use spell check. I love that PS3 attempt at a slam at the end, unless you have proof other than "I work at Best Buy" its spam and crap.
my brother has been trying to get one since last October here in New York City. It's not like he went to every major store in the city or something. He goes to few store from time to time to check if it's onstock.
Six weeks. That's how long it's been since my Best Buy store--the largest in the metro area--has seen a single Elite. The Pros are hard to come by, too, but we've seen semi-regular shipments of those. One theory: Someone once told me that the Elite's interior design was based on the Zephyr set, and not the Falcon; in other words, it didn't yet have the 65nm processor like the other units. Maybe the shortage is due to MS switching the Elites over to the Falcon? Any ideas, thoughts, etc.?
We have been out of Elites and haven't received any for weeks. The only one we have had was a trade-in.
... not sure why. It IS the only version of the 360 I am interested in tbh, but at the moment it's still wayyy too expensive. Maybe Microsoft is going to replace it's topmodel with a Blu-Ray elite or something. Ah well... I'm keeping my money in my pocket.
The Elite's are in the repair shop, or at Xbotz waiting on coffins to send them to their final destination.
i like your avatar
@Gamer me too :) lol
U bet it is, this is the only 360 model i will buy
I am glad someone else noticed this. I am in the Memphis area and we haven't had a shipment of elites since october of last year. I had to settle for a premi. WTF is with that? Sell badly?
It seems the Elite is impossible to find in my area and only a couple places have the PRO's. I would never buy a system over the internet without being able to check that it has a Falcon in it. Still, I have a PRO already since launch and it's working just fine. So I'm in no rush.
I had a hard time finding one in november and just happend to swing by game stop right after they got a few of them in.
Sorry BABOONS, but you wont find the world int the Elite. The world is busy at the moment on the PS3...AHAHAHAHAHHAHHA
Loads still in stock in England.
It look me about 4 weeks to find one. The other two models are very easy to find, it just that most people just want the elite. And I was one of them. Now I have mine for about a month now.
at Costco...One of those stores people sleep on as well as Sears.
im starting to think that ms was going to phase out the elite for that rumored xbox with the hd-dvd but warner bros put that plan on ice.
I haven't seen any since last October. I know that my Mom didn't have any trouble finding any when she got mine for X-Mas. I've only seen a couple in Wal-Mart like, twice between then and the new year. Weird.
This is not fun without an xbox fan in here to defend.
As said before, Elite's are still plentiful in the UK, Wii's on the other hand are still impossible to find online at least.
Theres quite alot of em. People buy em,bt,as MS stil havnt oficially launchd Live here (2 damn years already ! ) and we hafta conect with foreign accounts,its kinda useless. I stil prefer the standard white one tho. And wtf, why are there stil so many Halo 3 360s floating around? The damn thng here isnt seling so wel, its so ugly.retailers are bundling it with Forza 2, smackdown vs raw08,fifa08,viva pinata and halo3 to get rid of stock. Those are kinda old games anyway
MS has stopped production until they fix the RROD problems completely. Those RROD are causing a serious drain on MS from my understanding. Perhaps more then the money they set back to cover repairs. Just my guessed opinion though. It'd be nice if the 360 ultimate was launched with a satisfaction promiss of less then 2% failure rate. Otherwise I could go off the deep end and think their scrapping 360 fot the 720.
