    Microsoft plans on incorporating a TIVO like function to their systems. This is a part of their strategy. The key is the larger hard drive, they want you to download and save media on it like a tivo. Its quite different from the DS light or PS2 slim.

    The Elite will be limited quantities only; that may be as much or as little as a couple hundred thousand.
    The case, controller, and Live headset will all be black. It will have all new packaging.
    Elite will cost $479, and will be a 3rd SKU; it will be sold alongside Premium and Core packs.
    Eventually Elite hardware (in white plastics) will take the role of the Xbox Premium. That is to say, after the Elite is launched and sold out, future Xbox Premiums will have 120GB / HDMI.
    We do not yet know exactly when 120GB / HDMI will become the standard for Premium, but it is loosely estimated to be late summer or fall.
    Elite models run cooler than normal 360s, but they are not yet confirmed to have 65nm chips.
    Prices may remain the same with the 120GB / HDMI hardware upgrade in the Premium Xbox, but we may still see a price cut on the line when 65nm chips start shipping.
    The HD DVD drive will not be internal or bundled -- Microsoft never did or nor does not currently have plans to put an HD DVD drive in the 360.
    There are no current plans to integrate WiFi into the Elite or future Premiums (although that can always change).

    That picture and info is directly from a game magazine. I forget which magazine it was, but I do know it was the april issue. These magazines have done April Fool's pranks a lot. I doubt Elite is real.

    Im fairly certain there will indeed be a black 360. They are releasing a new xbox with a larger hard drive for their tivo campeign. I dont really know about this whole elite thing or what not though.

    This is why I never got a 360 when it came I knew another version would be out before Halo 3.

    This blows. I want a 360 with HDMI but what am i going to do with my current 360. MS should have a trade-in program for this. A lot of people are going to want a 360 with hdmi. Like a Motherboard upgrade with new processor would be good just like a good old computer. Swapping stuff out because of MS OS. So annoyed

    It was GAMEINFORMER I just picked it up and if it's real like I think this sucks for people who already have a white 360

    It would make sense if it goes black that it plays all XBOX games
