195w ago - As previously reported, today the sales ads for the first week of September at Walmart, Gamestop and Meijer show the Xbox 360 Elite priced at $299 and replacing the current Pro SKU which Microsoft is phasing out.
Engadget has managed to get a leaked photo of the Walmart ad as you can see below.
To quote: "In a move obviously designed to offset Sony's recent PS3 redesign and price drop, the $299 price point will take effect on the same day as the new PS3 launches - September 1st. The Arcade SKU will remain at $199."
Expect an official Microsoft announcement soon...

This is the second time i read that rrod was fixed online and I KNOW its utter bull. The first i read it was on kotaku when they mentioned a 360 slim rumour (yeah... good luck with that one, they dont even have a functioning fat yet) and the writer repeated it a couple times there like it was fact. They say jasper fixed it.
There is no way i'd be comfortable playing a console knowing that if the game i am playing pushes it, I might get a RROD. Thats just crazy... but the modding is tempting
thats agreeable, not to mention My G25 racing wheel works with my ps3. i dont even race on my 360 because of this. u can also use BT accessories with the ps3, HDD is upgradeable. there is much more to the list.
oh yah... i guess ill have to go home and tell at my Feb 2009 model thats got RROD to start working because its supposed to be impervious to RLOD, then head to my basement workshop and demand that the DEC 2008 console with E74 start working again. stare at it with a leer of hate in my eye and scare it into submission.
