So, after mooching off of my dad's 360 for some time now, I've decided to go on and buy my own.
Since I am only at my dad's house one month of each year, my play time is limited to that and when I'm at friend's houses. I am prepared to make this investment since I have games and a Live account already.
After checking all game stores, electronic stores, and general department stores, I can find no Elites (Ironically, I've spotted about 5 Wiis).
So I gave up the hunt and checked online.
Some sites are straight up sold out, while others...well....Amazon: $595?!Walmart:$739!?!? (It is a bundle, but it's a ripoff, and I don't need half that stuff)
And several retardly high priced units on eBay, among other sites.
WTF? I had no idea these were so hard to come by.
I have $525 to spend, enough to buy it with tax and free shipping (If supplied...) and maybe a used game. But everywhere I go it seems overpriced...
