It seems like the game industry just isn't as solid as it once was. Games are discovered long before they are officially announced and street dates are broken
left and right. Case in point: if the photo
above is indeed genuine, it looks like Target has broken the street date on the Xbox 360 Elite. Not only has the street date been broken, but it has been broken by more than a week. Way to go, Target! The picture even includes a receipt, which we have magnified so that the $479.99 price is clearly visible. Granted, it could be a display box and some Photoshop trickery, but it looks awfully legit to us.
What's more, it appears that the owner of the Elite is selling it on eBay
. The listing even has images of the serial number. The opening bid is $600. Of course, if Target is routinely breaking the street date, you could pick one up for a lot less.
Anyone else out there manage to snag an Elite from Target (or elsewhere)? We're assuming you aren't planning on winning
one. Hit the "read" link for a larger photo.
