BB XBOX Holiday Bundles--Where Are They?

Well I'm finally going to make the plunge on a brand new XBOX 360. I just bought a 58" Panasonic PLASMA (It totally rocks Thank You) and a brand new Yamaha HDMI receiver (RX-V861- Also rocks Thank You again) I have been hearing about these Holiday Bundles on other forums. Does anyone know when BB will be selling these. I have $400 in BB gift cards and that is the only place I can (and will) purchase the system (with an extended warranty of course) I allready got in on the TRU B2G1 free deal last week as well as the Block buster by 5 for 25 so I have 8 games I'm dying to play. Oh yeah I prefer the Elite as well as long as it has a manufacturing date after 8/24/07 or a pro will have to do as long as it has a 8/24/07 or after manf date. Anyone have any firm knowledge of when I will be able to make this purchase. Look forward to playing with you all on line very soon.

I'm fairly certain the Maevel Ultimate Alliance/Forza2 game pack ins are the holiday bundle. I've seen them at most BBs and Wal-Marts already.

CircuitCity also has their own in store bundle which includes Gears of War, extra controller, and maybe something else. Not really sure of the price either.

i picked a xbox 360 premium holiday pack over the weekend. they were all over place especially with the manufacturing date after 8/24/07 like you are looking for. the holiday elites are not out yet though b/c i didn't see one at all this whole weekend.

i picked up a xbox 360 with the lot number 736, team fdou, manufacturing date 9/4/07 in san diego. costco also had a good number of the bundles as well, but they don't allow you to see the manufacturing numbers b/c they are sealed.

Saw them for the first time at Costco today. Nice looking bundle. They still had several Halo bundles as well.

Yes, CostCo had them yesterday...still lots of Halo bundles left also. I'm still thinking about upgrading to the ELITE system since I have like $350 in GameRush credit.

So I just checked the manufacture date on the back of my 360 Elite bundle. It's 6-13-07 from lot 724. Are these the newest Elites available? I thought since they are bundled with Forza and Marvel, they would be the newest ones available. If anyone else gets them, please post your results as well.

Well I broke down and went with the Pro 360 since BB did not have any Holiday bundled elites. My manufacture date is 9/7/2007 Lot 737. What are the chances I have the 65nm chip set and new heat sinks?

Maybe they are using the bundles to get rid of the old 360s.

Looking at getting the Holiday Bundle at Walmart this weekend. Is that a good model to get. If it is, the only thing I need to worry about is that the date is 8/24/07 or later? Do those even exist?
