Microsoft is attempting to take some more wind out of Sony's PS3 sails. The Xbox360 Elite package is the newest offering from Microsoft. The matte black 360 is a slight upgrade on the current "Premium" pack with a larger 120gb hard drive and HDMI output. The 360 Elite will come in priced at $479, shipping this May. The larger, 120gb hard drive can also be purchased separately for $179 (kind of expensive) The finer details have not come out yet, mainly what version of HMDI and support for the new surround sound formats ( DTS HD-Master, Dolby Digital True HD) Personally I think Microsoft missed the mark on this upgraded version. I would have liked to see this "Elite" version be at the $400 price tag, and a price drop for the current models. What do you gamers think?
