Xbox 360 Elite (250GB Version) Outed by Amazon in Germany

It's not the first time an e-tailer has outed a product early. It won't be the last. It appears that's German site has listed a 250GB version of the Xbox 360 Elite.

It's a good time to be a gamer, eh? First the PS3 "Slim" and a $100 price reduction, then the corresponding $100 price drop for the Xbox 360 Elite, and now a 250GB Xbox Elite version?

The listing is a package deal, including Forza Motorsport 3 for EUR 279.99 or about $402. Since Microsoft's announcement of the Xbox 360 price cut includes a note that implies the Pro version will be discontinued, perhaps the current Elite will become Pro, and the 250GB version (assuming it's for real) will become the new Elite. Guess we'll find out, one way or the other.
