Confirmed - Xbox 360 Elite is coming

Xbox fans rejoice! All of the rumors are true. Well, maybe not all of them, but the ones calling for a black Xbox 360 Elite are.

Early this morning Microsoft announced that they will indeed begin selling the Xbox 360 Elite on April 29. The new Elite 360 will be black in color, will have a 120GB hard drive, and will support HDMI. As a bonus, they are actually including the HDMI cable as well as the standard component and composite cable.

For those of you that already own a 360 and don't feel like dropping $479 on a new Xbox, you can still purchase a standalone 120GB hard drive for $179.
