HMV expects Xbox 360 Elite by 'late summer' While Microsoft Corp. has not yet announced any release information for the Xbox 360 Elite unit in Europe, retailer HMV has revealed it expects the console will be available by late summer. "All we understand is that it's at some point perhaps around the late summer," a spokesperson told
The spokesperson added: "We're expecting the product to be sold sooner rather than later, and obviously at that point we'll have a fuller idea of all their launch plans, precise timings, pricing and everything else from a retail point of view." The Xbox 360 Elite includes an all-black finish, headset, controller, component/SD cable, 120GB HDD, HDMI output and cable and a one month subscription to Xbox Live Gold.

"I feel sure that there'll be demand for this product, and Microsoft now enjoys the level of brand penetration and player loyalty for it to be successful." Tim Ellis, head of games at HMV said. "There should be quite a few core gamers out there that may want to upgrade or who will at least want the extra capacity now on offer."
