Default $299 360 elite + 2 games + faceplate

Im not picking one up because my PS3 doesnt even get gamed on anymore but this seems to be a very nice deal dell is pulling off.

Its in smackdown for 2 reasons.
1: most people look here
2: its cheaper than ps3, but still not as good

Thats what I thought. Seriously if I stayed interested in console gaming I would grab it. But I know it will just sit there and collect dust just like all my other consoles.

this will sell out in less then a day i bet. terriffic value. Even if the price drop happens, most likely the Elite is only dropping to 399, so this is still $100 cheaper then that, and has 2 games and 2 faceplates. You could resell it for craigslist for more then that probably

Wow... ordered!

Been wanting to get an Elite for a second system for awhile now. It comes to $316 and some change with the free shipping.

THANK YOU for the head's up!

Apparently this was a pricing snafu. Dell is doing a deal where they take $150 off select computers through August 8th. This was incorrectly applied to the 360 Elite. This has since been corrected (go on Dell's site and if you add it to your cart it will be $449 again).

Who is liable when my house burns down because of one of these, Dell or Microsoft?

Well, in my confirmation e-mail it says they reserve the right to cancel orders with pricing errors.

I'm now expecting to get a cancellation e-mail.

Man that sucks for you. I'm kind of chuckling because I passed up even a deal that's literally "too good to be true".
