Well, I bought my second 360 a few days after Christmas. Unfortunately the dvd drive went bad about three weeks later and now I have no xbox. I bought the Halo edition Xbox and now that it died I returned it to Best Buy decided I might as well spend the extra $50 instead to get an elite. The problem is they're sold out everywhere I've looked. I vaguely remember Microsoft saying they were being sold for a limited time but I could be wrong. My question is does anyone know if for whatever reason they've discontinued the elite or is Microsoft still trying to restock stores from the holiday season. I just want another Xbox and am trying to decide whether to play the waiting game or just go out and buy a pro system if thats my only choice now. Sorry if this question has be posted already.

i had the same problem. my 360 died a few weeks ago and after calling about 10 best buys i finally just dealt with microsoft. all the stores i called had neither one of the elite, the pro, the halo edition, nothing. all they had were arcades. it'll probably be a while before everything is in stock again.

No, I believe that the Elite is a permanent SKU. They might all be sold out since it's still fairly close to Christmas and they haven't restocked yet, but generally it isn't too hard to find them.

I work at Target and I haven't seen a Pro or Elite since Christmas. I think microsoft is just recovering from the holiday season.
