Last night at 3am, Brian Ashcraft at Kotaku broke the news confirming the black, HDMI, 120GB Xbox 360. We followed up with a post, and Ryan at Engadget got confirmation that it would be dubbed the Elite. After the limited edition black runs sell out, white Xbox 360s with the same guts will take over the premium line. Microsoft never comments on such things before the official announcement. Except by Accident. Here's just a little more confirmation...

We were totally just asking about new controllers.

PS, I guess I have to spell it out for you — this really doesn't count as confirmation by denial. All fun and games, folks.

This is getting interesting. If MS actually releases this 360, I'll see it strictly as a reaction to the PS3. It'll look like they've got to put out the 360 v2 to compete with the PS3 as far as features/functions. Unfortunately, they're gonna have to have a price that's comparable to the PS3. They might as well slap an HD-DVD drive in it and sell it for $599. This kinda seems like a bad move. I mean, up to this point they've been able to retort "Well, we're 200 bucks cheaper." And that's pretty much been the chant. PS3 doesn't have any games. PS3 is too expensive. Now with the games coming out...does MS really wanna give up the price advantage too? I don't understand this.
