Gamestop will begin taking pre-orders for the new Elite version of Microsoft's next-gen console today. The Elite will be similar to the original 360, but will be black and have HDMI output and a 120GB hard drive.

The Elite will be on sale to the public starting this Sunday the 29th for $479.99. No word on how many of these Gamestop will have available for pre-order.
