If the Elite is truly a permanent edition to the lineup, why the hell doesn't anyone have any? My local Gamestops don't even have any idea when they'll recieve more. The one guy told me they recieved 2 the first week and they haven't gotten any since. WTF!?

I don't wanna order one online. I'll try the local Best Buys over the weekend. I keep hearing that BB gets the biggest shipments of them right now. I just dislike those stores.

I got mine by keeping an eye on the local inventory of circuit city via their website. You can check store inventories on their website. It isn't perfectly reliable as the closest store stated it had an Elite available for days, but you couldn't order it to be picked up. But in watching the list of all stores in my area, I was able to see when a store that previously didn't have one, received one. I reserved it online by ordering it for pick up at that store and went in. The employees up front questioned that they had one in stock at all, but lo and behold, they did. They had a promotion with a free wireless controller and a copy of Fusion Frenzy. They are stilll trickling in, but are hard to find. Just be persistent in your search...

Last I read a small factory in Canada makes them for the U.S though that could be completely wrong and I don't have the source.

I hope stock improves once this dam thing gets launched in Europe.

My girlfriend got me mine for my birthday and it's not like she searched high and low for it she just went to Circuit City and bought it maybe it was dumb luck but she didn't seem to have a problem.

Happy Birthday to me amirite? Course all she does now is complain I play it all the time..
