i think the price point is too high. i can see how it makes sense for them now as the ps3 has no good games, but that wont last forever. i have a 360 and am completely anti-sony but all games created equal, i would pick a 599 20gb ps3 over a 579 or 599 (cdn pricing) xbox 360 elite. the ps3 hardware wise is giving you more value for that price. (remember, assuming that games are equal)
im a little disappointed in that i figured that MS would intro the elite at 499, and drop the 20gb model to 399 and just get rid of the core system. it may well be what they end up doing in time (once the ps3 gets some games) but as of now i dont think the elite is really a good value.
just my $.02
*edit* Forgot to add that i think if they included the hddvd drive for the 579 or 599 price (cdn) it would be a good value package
