Now you have to buy your own.
With the new price on the Xbox 360 Elite being $299 starting August 28, it might be the perfect time to pick up Microsoft's console all dressed in black. After all, it is the Elite model, right?
The thing is that, unlike the previous models which sold for $399, the latest ones shipping out from Microsoft seem to have dropped the HDMI cable alongside the $100 price cut. Surely anyone would be willing to give up an HDMI cable that can be had for several dollars at online retailers, but now it makes the Elite price drop seem more like just a 60 GB HDD bump for the Pro SKU.
It does, however, still come in black.
