Default Re: HD Disc Format War Not Over By a Long Shot

It just got released in Europe with prices starting at $599 euros.
The US price was announced at CES for $599US.

This is where the confusion comes from.

The current player lists for $499 so a list of $599 for this one seems about right.
This means it should be available for about $475 or so via discount channels.
Heck, I only paid $375 for the BD30 directly from Panasonic so I should be able to get the 50 at a similar discount.

Not everyone here pays retail right?
