Xbox 360 Elite for just $1,199!

Out of curiosity, I just popped over to to search for a pre-order page for the Xbox 360 Elite. Lo and behold there are nine up for sale (or pre-order depending on which seller you go with; none of them are Amazon, though) with prices of either $1,199.99 or $2,474.99. Am I missing something here?

The system isn’t due in U.S. stores till April 29 with an estimated retail price of $479.99. So who in the hell is going to drop $1,200 to nearly $2,500 for it now? Again, maybe I’m missing something and if so, please straighten me out. Xbox 360 Elite Page
