Online retail demand in the US for the Xbox 360 Elite has already surpassed the total for Core and Premium system shoppers despite it only having been listed for pre-order 3 weeks ago.
According to Complete.com, an online traffic analysis group, "the Elite launch has driven incremental shoppers to the 360 brand". Despite it not even being released yet, "it is already generating significant interest".
The charts in the article also show that the PS3 is trailing the 360 while the Wii's online demand is 40% higher than the 360's and nearly double the PS3.
They conclude by saying that Microsoft's answer to the PS3 may be short and sweet, "Own3d".
