Default Elite in my hands

I went to target today and took a stroll on over to the games section, and to my suprise they had an Xbox Elite in the case.So naturally I had a clerk get it out for me and we proceeded to checkout, only to be denied at the register when she went to ring it up. Damn I was so close.

Did it by any chance mention anything about a Data Transfer cable on the box?

One thing the console will not come with is a data transfer cable, as had been rumored. However, a stand-alone, $179 120GB drive for the console will be released alongside the Xbox 360 Elite bundled with a data transfer cable. The cable will allow for the transfer of all Marketplace downloads and game saves from an existing 360 hard drive to the new hard drive.

Same thing happened to me on Friday (4-20) at WalMart. They had 2 in the case. I asked for one. When the cashier scanned it, it came up "item not allowed" or something like that. They called the manager over. She asked me if there was a street date, I played stupid. She called one of their sister stores and was told about the April 29th street date. She then pulled the other Elite out of the case and told me to come back on the 29th.

At first I was pissed, especially because I knew others had gotten away with buying them at WalMart, but now I'm glad I didn't buy it there. I really want to buy it from Best Buy with their PRP plan.

No, they don't have to sell it to you even if it is on the floor. It's the store's right.
