I go to Wal-Mart a few days ago (I believe it was Friday), and to my surprise, there's the X-Box 120 gig hard drive for sale separately. The electronics department salesperson told me its $179.99. I call my friend at EBGames and he tells me the release date is still April 29th and he doesn't know what Wal-Mart's doing. I go to a few other Wal-Marts, and not only were they selling the hard drive, too, but also the 360 Elite itself.
So I guess my question is...are street dates really suggestions, or does Wal-Mart gets things early for some reason? I remember seeing examples of this at Wal-Mart before, but this is just the most RECENT example.
