    elites are sold out everywhere around me and the pro are in limited numbers what is going on:

    1) increased sales
    2) decreased production
    3) sku change

    I imagine the 'true' answer being a mixture of all those above.

    The only time I've seen a few boxes was when I was at a ghetto Target near my university.

    I am surprised by how hard it is to find an Elite. I'd say it's almost as elusive as a Wii.

    Probably because they haven't been released in Europe yet ;)

    There's a stack of them at the gamestop here in Abilene, TX. Not selling anymore than anything else. But then they've had Wiis for a while here too...

    Because they are all being repaired by MS for a faulty motherboard.

    NZ's biggest (I think) game seller says that they have an extremely limited number of Elites available, so I think it's a supply issue.

    Edit: Or maybe they're being repaired :)
