Got our shipment of 30 Crystal Xbox's today in our store, and they are street dated for Nov. 2.

Crystal Xbox
Crystal controller S (boo)
Fable
Crimson Skies

Thing I like is that the 2 games come in the REAL boxes, none of the 2 on 1 disc crap :P

All this for $249.99 :D (Canadian mind you)

I'll try to remember to bring my cam to the store tomorrow to show you guys, they are GORGEOUS :D

SOOoooooo going to trade in my xbox, fable, crimson and pay the difference:)

Yup, NTSC in Canada :)

There is no Canadian EB site. You convert prices yourself and add a day to get Canadian price/dates =/

I don't see the bundles anywhere advertized yet, cause they are still kinda hush-hush atm.

Who would buy a regular xbox or the top spin/amped2 bundle if the crystal one is out? They want to sell as many of the older ones as possible before the release of this amazing bundle:)

Damn I must admit that these are some nice looking xboxes. I would prefer this over the origional color. MS needs to do a little research before making the plain ol black for the next xbox.

they should make the next one crystal blue imho :)

I guess I'm the only one who isn't concerend about the color of my xbox. Certainly not worth running out and buying a new one.

10-29-2004, 11:11 AM
I'm not getting a new one either, it would have been nice to have the option in the first place.

awesome. if i didnt already have two xboxes..i'd love to get one of those. but i cant really justify the cost, considering my green halo xbox hardly ever gets turned on now.

for those of you who want the clear xbox but dont want to spend the cash..there are sites out there that sell clear replacement cases. i wont put a link here, since most of those sites also sell mod chips and stuff..but if you do a google search for xbox replacement case, you will find them.

yea, you can actually make those look like the crystals if you use the Krylon Frost paint, or atleast some people have been able to do it.

I went into my Eb today and asked them about it. In a very quiet voice, they confirmed it. They didn't want the secret out :) I know have one on my preorder to go with my limit. edition clear green xbox.

FINALLY us Canadians get a peice of the deals........

I may even pick up another bundle to sell on ebay unopened.

I can't wait to pick this up on tuesday, then a week later pick up halo 2

Variation, is your store doing halo preodrders still? I went into my local one on saturday and they said they werent taking anymore. Something about halo2 being removed off the release schedual or something. He said he would have to call head office.

Yes, but we're going to be cut off any day (if not tomorrow) because of the shear # of preorders + shipping them early to stores.

I want one and if I had the money then I would buy another x-box. Then I could have one at home and one at school. :)

But then I'd have to buy more copies of my favorite games or just keep transporting them back and forth. :(

I still might get one, if I can get the money together. :)

I am with Duke. Its still just a xbox and I dont care at all about it newer look. I wont be getting one.

I'll be getting mine tommorrow. Im with duke and Brevity though, I wouldn't buy it if I already had a working xbox. Its just a nice coincidence that I have to buy an xbox before halo 2 anyway, and I still need to pick up fable. With this I get a cool looking xbox, and fable

Maybe as far as bundles go but when it comes to colors we only have the normal xbox and the Halo xbox, where as up in Canada you have those two and now the crystal...I guess it doesn't really make that much of a difference though unless you are a system collector, but it's the principle of the thing.

Actually, the Canadian dollar has been going up, and up. A few days ago it went up an entire cent in one day.
