Everywhere I go they have no estimated shipping dates either. What's going on with the Elite, has anybody heard how long it's going to be before they will be available?

Its the same situation across all of North America from what I see. Nothing but the dang 'arcade' edition everywhere

Yep none around here. I ordered mine from Amazon. Got here in a few days no tax and got a Falcon chipset even.

I was at the Fry's @635 and Macarthur in Irving and they had a few.

That is strange. I checked Bestbuy and Circuit City in the Frisco area and sold out... how on earth did that happen at this time of year?

Easy:

1- they're built in China

2- they ship by boat

3- they sold out all pre-holiday production and probably had to airlift most of the pre-XMAS december production to meet demand

4- they ship by boat


(In other words, post XMAS production is in transit.)


Hey, a january shortage is better than a january dust-covered bloat as has been known to happen to somebody else the past two years...

None in Fort Worth, either. Best Buy @ Ridgmar (Green Oaks Blvd) had them a couple of weeks ago but nothing since. Friend at work purchased one & I had to school him on Falcons and what to look for.


On a related note - Circuit City emp told me they typically get their inventory shipments on Wednesday and Friday, mostly Pros and Arcades. YMMV.

Probably right on the shipping. Hopefully some new hardware on route.

Yeah, I have swept funky town also. Probably call out to Fry's @ 635 to see if they still have, even though that is a haul for me.


Need an Xbox, having withdrawls going through my second RRoD. Still a loyal customer.

Well - I at least found an xbox in Fort Worth that wasn't an Arcade. Costco in Southlake had one (1) 'Go Pro' bundled with HALO 3. Pro was a Falcon (175w on the box). This is the first bona fide Falcon I have seen and the first non-Arcade I have seen in over a month.

If they are coming from China (and built in China...not sure on that one) then production will halt for a month as Chinese New Year is here.
