if microsoft were smart they should dump the core entirely (if not $250-$200 for new price), release this for $400 and drop the current premium to $300.
i just really hope they dont make the mistake of releasing this as a "super" 360 or something and price it in the ps3's price range.
i also hope they drop the 20GB HDD and just have this for $99. i refuse to pay more for a HDD when more capacity hardly effects cost.

Trust me, this topic will be filled with unhappy replies.
it all depends on how it's handled. every early adopter should know the drawbacks of jumping on the bandwagon early in the game.
what the early adopters have and will always have though, is the experiences earlier then the rest. we pay the high prices, wait in lines, and take the risk so we can say "we were there from the beginning, experienced those games from the start, and supporting our passions before the fense-sitters did". <- this may be my opinion alone, but i still have no regrets waiting out in the cold for over 15 hours for my 360 on pre-launch night because i was able to get some of the best gaming experiences of my life without waiting.
this honestly wouldnt be any different then microsoft lowering the prices of both packages when the 65nm chips came out. some early adopters would bitch anyways, but we all know that price cuts are coming. unless HDMI is that huge of a deal, just go and buy the 120GB HDD when its released, we all also knew that a larger HDD was coming as well.
honestly none of this should be of any surprise IMHO.
