    In a word...NO. Microsoft is sitting pretty on top of all things videogaming right now. They have NO reason to lower their prices right now and the only reason they would lower them is maybe to drive sales even higher and that would only occur during the "Holiday Season". So like for a month of so. Other than that I'm pretty sure they're going to keep prices the same as usual because people are still buying them at a steady rate and its a great system with a justifiable price.

    The Elite on the other hand is a whole nother question. For $80 more I would like a little big more of an upgrade than just HDMI (and not the latest version according to sources at that), bigger Hard Drive, and black color job. But then again thats a whole lotta extra space and a very NICE looking color job...lol. I'm gonna have to ask the experts on this. ...Is the Elite worth the money?

    if you dont have a 360 than yes its worth the money because for 80 bucks more u get:

    component cables
    composite cables
    hdmi enabled box
    hdmi cable
    hdmi splitter ( run your audio to your receiver)
    100 gigs more on your hard drive
    apparently a cooler running 360 ( but no 65nm chip)
    and the black paint job

    the hdmi cables would run you 50 bucks alone so for 30 bucks 100 gigs definitely worth it ONLY if you dont have a 360 already

    Price drop won't occur right away, but I'm sure we'll see it go down by year's end.

    One thing I read somewhere (completely unsubstantiated, but an interesting idea) is that, after the limited edition black run, will be replacing the Premium edition. The Elite will re-enter the marketplace at $400, and the Premium will be pushed to $300, while the Core will disappear. Again, speculative, but a good thought.
    When I was a child, I caught a fleeting glimpse
    Out of the corner of my eye
    I turned to look, but it was gone
    I cannot put my finger on it now
    The child is grown, the dream is gone
    I have become Comfortably Numb

    Na the black will be higher price as ya paying for the big hdd and the connection for hd tvs.

    White boxes will go down in price, but not a big drop as they are still selling them now.
