Xbox 360 Elite - It's coming!

I just read on Engadget about the new 360 that is coming out. They're using some kind of black one colour scheme (seems vaguely familiar... :-? ) and, of course, changing it on the inside too:

" * The Elite will be limited quantities only; that may be as much or as little as a couple hundred thousand.
* The case, controller, and Live headset will all be black. It will have all new packaging.
* Elite will cost $479, and will be a 3rd SKU; it will be sold alongside Premium and Core packs.
* Eventually Elite hardware (in white plastics) will take the role of the Xbox Premium. That is to say, after the Elite is launched and sold out, future Xbox Premiums will have 120GB / HDMI.
* We do not yet know exactly when 120GB / HDMI will become the standard for Premium, but it is loosely estimated to be late summer or fall.
* Elite models run cooler than normal 360s, but they are not yet confirmed to have 65nm chips.
* Prices may remain the same with the 120GB / HDMI hardware upgrade in the Premium Xbox, but we may still see a price cut on the line when 65nm chips start shipping.
* The HD DVD drive will not be internal or bundled -- Microsoft never did or nor does not currently have plans to put an HD DVD drive in the 360.
* There are no current plans to integrate WiFi into the Elite or future Premiums (although that can always change)."

Now, the question is. When the elite hits shelves, will the Premiums see a price drop the likes of which we haven't seen?

If so, I may have to go out and grab me a premium when these things come out.

If this is indeed true then I'll pick one up. I want everything to match on my display stand.

I won't be buying one. I already have the Premium edition and that's enough, I won't be running out to buy a new one. It still plays the same games and everything. The less money Microsoft gets from me the better!

Sounds like a good deal should me current premium 360 crap out on me. Other than that.....no real need.
