Gamestop actually got some today. I was able ot pick one up before going to see Die Hard 4. Bought the replacement thing from Gamestop. play & charge, and got Call of Duty 2 from Walmart. I'm hoping for some sort of bargain on HD-DVD drives next week. I'll get one Sunday morning either way, I guess. Sad thing is, there aren't many good HD-DVDs out yet, not that I can afford to blow much more right now, anyway.

Check your frys if you have one locally. They had several at my local store.

1080p, where marketing genius and science fiction collide!

I'd disagree with that. Don't forget, with HD-DVD you can Import. Running Scared from Germany is worth every penny!! not to mention The Matrix Trilogy!!

Bah. I want Armageddon, Scarface, Titanic, Escape From LA, Dirty Harry, STAR WARS! The blockbuster stuff that should've been released early on. It's the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars, but still no word on hi def releases. WTF!?!? and I shouldn't have to import Terminator 2 for christ sakes. There's also no date set on Lethal Weapon 3-4, which seems pretty dumb considering the first two are out.

Only thing I really want right now is Bulletproof and Army of Darkness. Plus Die Hard 4 whenever it comes out. Hard to justify replacing too many of my SD-DVDs. I would pickup the Matrix trilogy eventually though.

I FINALLY GOT AN ELITE!!!!!!
I ordered it this morning right when it went on line at costco. I checked http://xbox360tracker.com/elite/
and it showed in stock with 0 minutes into it being posted. I just checked and it is still in stock after 8 hours. Costco usually sells out in minutes. Maybe the shortage is over?

I ordered it with express shipping so here's hoping it is here by thursday!

Supporter of whatever looks and sounds good to me

The Best Buy on Touhy Ave. in Skokie had a few Elites out when I was there this afternoon. Weird thing is that they were all launch systems with build dates of March 25, 2007. When I bought mine a couple weeks ago, the warehouse guy gave me one with an April 20, 2007 build.

Funny, I got the 3 red rings of death on my premium today. My wife has been talking about getting a 2nd so we could play Saints Row online together. I went by Best Buy to see if there were any premiums in stock... no premiums, but 2 Elites!

Got 1, and what a difference the HDMI makes on my 61" Samsung! It now even upscales DVDs better than my Oppo DVD player.

This was in Dallas, off 635. They had 1 left. The employees were envious, they aren't allowed to buy them.

New sh*t has come to light...

Dude, does it really upscale better than your Oppo? I ask because my Oppo just died

Fry's in Anaheim, CA always has Elites. Every time I'm in there they have a sign that says "xBox360 Elites in stock". Their bathrooms might be under remodeling construction but they have elites. Have fun using the port-o-potties!!!!!

Need lighting for your home theater?
