Default Topic Question: XBox 360 HD DVD Player - Black?

With the newly, officially announced Black XBox 360 Elite, do you think or have you heard if Microsoft is planning to come out with a Black HD DVD Add-On?

I know it sounds like the logical thing to do, but i've heard that the Black XBox 360 Elite is Limited Edition and will then become a White XBox 360 Elite after the initial launch.

I've asked teh question already and so far the answer seems to be no. However no one knows for sure, it's just that there aren't even rumors alluding to a black add-on. So based upon the quietness, it would seem like it's unlikely for one to be offered.

They're planning on selling black accessories, it doesn't sound like it will be limited in black. The add-on may get a two-tone-two-sku approach, but there was a black HD DVD add-on being given out by MS as limited gifts.

Odd thought, what if they include the HD DVD add-on in Black to the Elite sets as a limited time thing, then switch everything over to white. Nothing to back it up, just would make an interesting announcement for tonight if it's not Halo or Price related.

In Majornelson's show on the Elite Albert Penello mentions there will not be a black HD DVD addon. Your shiny new Elite will be cosying up to a white addon. Another brilliant marketing decision by MS

Inter-racial technology coupling?! Oh noes!!

I have a dream that gaming consoles will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their exterior, but by the content of their cases and the content of their games.

Amen.

They've made them, they're supposed to be internal special editions, but until yesterday night the elite was still a rumor, so let's see where this goes.

That would be good if they do make them available. However from an HD DVD user's standpoint the biggest question about the Elite is lossless sound. We know the current 360 console decodes all lossless sound formats and encodes to DD (DTS soon to come). Question is with HDMI on the Elite will MS add the option to pass a decoded multi-channel LPCM stream. Posts on AVS from a suspected MS insider say this wont happen. If confirmed the reasons to purchase an Elite from a current 360/addon owner's perspective would not be very compelling.
