    Does anyone know if there is going to be a Black HD-DVD drive?

    Unlikely.

    They exist, but there's been no word of making them available to the public.

    Actually, whilst were on the subject, does anyone else think the fake chrome tray draw is absolutely hideous. Im actually glad I got a core 360 so I dont have the shiny tray.

    why would you want one? The Black 360s look like the ugly devkits.

    They look a lot better than the rubbishy dev ones and as I own an elite console I would like an 'elite' HD DVD drive to go with it.

    Well, there's your first mistake...

    It's still fairly unlikely, though. The amount of people who would specifically want a black one over a white one is probably not enough to warrant a production run.

    No.

    Black 360s look better than the very-slightly-off-white originals, IMO.

    Especially after a few months/years (delete as per your messiness) of dirt.

    Yep, I think the white one looks a lot better too.

    +1. Although the only reason I bought a Core was because that was all I could get just after launch.

    The trouble is with the “white” ones, is that as soon as you put them next to something that is actually white, like the Wii, suddenly you become very aware that it is in fact the colour of ten year old Compaq PCs.

    Its actually a great match for my Sky box!

    Take the case off of it and spray it black. It cant be that hard.
    It'll then be worth £999 on ebay!

    Seriously though, if I got one, I would. The black xbox fits in nicely with allt he other AV gear. If i got that drive, it'd stick out like a sore thumb. the wii is bad enough.

    I can say I'm honestly not bothered.

    I'm glad I got the premium so I don't have to pay extra for the remote, wireless pad or HDD :p
