It is pretty pricey folks. People were originally estimating between $90 and $120. But it looks like we got a few more films than we were expecting, and it’s loaded with features. So the market price is about $240. Right now you can pre-order it at amazon $179.99. So it looks like this is going to be my Christmas and birthday present. But god, it’s so worth it.

I’ll keep my eyes open and let you guys know if there’s any place that has it cheaper.
