According to German gaming site Xbox-Archiv (http://translate.google.com/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.xbox-archiv.de%2F%3Fp%3D5779&langpair=de%7Cen&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&prev=%2Flanguage_tools), the much rumored (http://www.joystiq.com/2007/02/17/microsoft-strongly-considering-xbox-360-price-drop/) black Xbox 360 Premium is in fact coming, despite constant efforts to diffuse its existence and dash gamer hopes.

The site claims a little bird told them the new system is coming this May, at a lower $299 price replacing the useless Core model in the process. Also included are a 120 GB hard drive and HDMI outputs. Spring is the time (http://www.joystiq.com/2007/01/26/xbox-360-price-cut-unlikely-in-early-2007/) for price drops, and our golden gut tells us Microsoft will more than likely run with something come this May...

UPDATE: A little clarification - the rumor suggests the current premium will take the place of the Core and its $299 price with the souped up Premium Pro costing $400 or more.
