I am not selling mine.. i am simply taking it to best buy cuz i have the 2 year plan.. i can trade it in and pay just the difference... then i can buy a new 2 year warranty... and they will refund the remainder of my warranty back to me... so i figure for $80 i can upgrade... might even sell it on ebay if they do make the limited qty black ones. then with the money i made buy a new one in white cuz all the 360 stuff i have is white nehow

my understanding of it is they are going to make like 200,000 of the black ones... then they are going to make white ones and the elite will replace the core since the core is pretty much useless... i have also heard the new one is going to be $479.... we will have to wait and see... i just want one because of more storage and a quieter disk drive... mine is so dang noisy..

i had now idea that they were making such a limited quantity..but if it has an hdmi output is that going to leave regular 360 owners out of luck? from what i understand 360 only has 720p and with an hdmi output wouldnt that put games up to 1080p

only the black is going to be a limited amount... they will continue to make them in white with the elite package with 120GB and HDMI just a special black limited edition of it.. kind of like sonys lmited edition silver ps2
