The Xbox 360 Elite drum beat grows louder

Xbox 360 Elite systems have been caught in the wild on a Chinese production line. Xbox 360 Fanboy has images of racks of black Xbox 360 units taken from a Chinese video game forum.

The images not only show the sleek, black exterior of the Xbox 360 Elite, but a close-up image shows the 120GB hard disk drive (HDD) fitted atop the console.

Further confirmation of the Xbox 360 Elite came over the weekend from Dean Takahashi of the The Mercury News. Takahashi was the first to break the news of the Xbox 360's upcoming IPTV service.

Likewise, promotional materials from Gamestop have been spotted which detail the 120GB which will be made available as a stand-alone upgrade for current Xbox 360 owners.

While the new black exterior and 120GB HDD may be headliner features of the $479 USD Xbox 360 Elite, the addition of an HDMI port and an HDMI cable are also added bonuses. Two features that are reportedly missing from the Xbox 360 Elite, however, are built-in WiFi and an internal HD DVD drive.

Engadget notes that the Xbox 360 Elite will be available in limited quantities sometime this Spring and that Xbox 360 Premium systems will get Elite-spec hardware (sans black finish) sometime in late Summer/early Fall. The price is expected to remain at $399 while price cuts are expected to help clear out the existing stock of Xbox 360 Premiums with the smaller 20GB HDD.

Jeez, if this kind of stuff keeps surfacing, the odds that it's a farce are gonna disappear quickly.

Yeah, it really makes so much sense for you to be happy for waiting two years before you picked up an XBox360. Im sure you predicted that Xbox360's were going to include these new features and decided you could not live with an original one and therefore made an gametime decision to hold out.

LOL... If I really want a black system with a larger harddrive and HDMI Ill just go ahead and buy another one for 400$. I believe I got decent use out of it already and can't for the life of me understand how "Holding out" is a bright idea?

Are you the same type of guy who doesnt buy computers or TVs because they come out w/ new hardware every week?

Tell us, are you still having fun playing your SNES? They already started spoiling on the next generation of Xbox, so you better not waste your money on a 360! lol

Hey man, the NES is the best game system ever created. I have mine sitting next to my 360. And once the Wii becomes more available I'll buy that and download all the NES and SNES games for it. Don't mock the old school.
