I was thinking about buying the case for one, but some guy made a great point...

The green xboxes were released and then it took 2-3 months for them to get to a new continent, and then the crystals were released in Europe and it took 2-3 months for them to get to Australia....

Will North Americans be seeing Crystal XBOXes anytime soon????

There's just so much that you can do with them...

I'd buy like 3 of em....

What do you guys think....gonna happen, or no????

It sure will burn a lot of people's bridges who were impatient and spent $200 on a case when they coulda waited and bought a whole box for that....

Anyway....

It's also gonna be great if XBOX ever goes down to $100...

I wonder if that's gonna happen...

we already got them, they sold out before they hit shelves.

as for going down to $100, i know at gamestop you can get refurbished for $100, a while back you could, they might have been on sale, not sure

And why do you think that???

Any specific reason behind that???

I'd love it if MS would start releasing like combo packs...

Could you imagine a Splinter Cell: PT combo???

It'd be really cool...

Refurbs are 129.99 + tax in the USA bro.

Also when the hell did we EVER have crystal xboxes in the US? I don't think Canada got them either so let me rephrase...

When the hell did we ever have crystals in North America?

Why don't you just buy 3 of them now.

They are kinda cheap rolleyes.gif

Seriously though, the cheapest you can get them imported here for is 283.00 USD

246.00 for the system, 37.00 for S/H

The green is perfectly fine.

As far as us getting anything else, it's unlikely. They probably wouldnt make much more money for rolling out a whole new production of limited xboxes to the US.

Only way it would be cost effective would be to cease all standard xbox production in a single facility and change it over to limited editions only, similar to the Halo rollout. It'd take a few months to market and produce enough to supply the country.

Not effective to them at all.

Maybe towards the end of the year we'll see something, possibly a Halo2/Live/Limited Edition bundle, but I doubt it'll be crystal ones. Possibility, but unlikely.

I've already got an XBOX (3 in my house in fact)...

I'll just save my money and see if they come out with something later on in the year....
