So, I've been hunting for the 360's with HDMI (Non-Elite) since I heard about them. I am in Canada (Ontario) and have not yet found one at 3 different Best Buy stores, 1 Future Shop and 1 Toys R Us.

I thought I'd start a topic to track where we can buy the new ones from:


Country, State/Prov., City, Store, Package, Date
================================

USA, GA, Atlanta, Target (which store?), Premium, Aug 10

Canada, Ontario, Richmond Hill, Best Buy, NONE, Aug 12
Canada, Ontario, Richmond Hill, Toys R Us, NONE, Aug 12
Canada, Ontario, Toronto - Downsview, Best Buy, NONE, Aug 12
Canada, Ontario, Willowdale, Futureshop, NONE, Aug 12
Canada, Ontario, Markham, Best Buy, NONE, Aug 13



I hope that those who manage to find them will help those that are looking to find them too

Hi, I am also on a mad search right now to find one, I actually bought one, read about the HDMI and returned my bought one within 2 hours. I've tried every store that sells them in and around the Newmarket region, being EBgames (3 of them), toy's r us (1 of them), wal-mart (2 of them), zellers (2 of them), microplay (1 of them), HMV (1 of them), and I have called around many places of these franchises with no luck. Seems to me that they are not available in Canada yet, and the HMV superstore in toronto is the first HMV in canada to get new products as per the manager, and he said it could be 1-2 months before it makes it to him...

That news didn't really excite me much, but post on here if you find on anywhere in the GTA.

I got mine today from amazon.com, ended up being $365 with next day shipping which is still cheaper than what I would have paid around here after tax.

That's neat, except I don't live in the USA, seems like a far drive for a gaming console! Thanks anyways tho.

Check Best Buy, Fry's, or Amazon.com. I went to Best Buy last Tuesday, I saw many XBox 360 on the floor. I checked three 360s on the floor, and all three had the HDMI specs on the box. Fry's advertises saying HDMI, as well as Amazon.com, but check the specs and you would be okay.

Well, Newmarket Ontario has nothing in any of the gaming stores as of righ tnow, which includes best buy, future shop, microplay, both ebgames, toys r us, zellers, wal-mart, costco... i think that's all the places I checked today, but all have old school premiums with NO hdmi, but that's basically asking for red rings of death...

I'm starting to think Microsoft dropped the price $100 in canada so that they could push the old crappy ones out the door quicker up here, while the US gets the new stock. Yes, once again, s-c-r-e-w-e-d by MS for the time being.
