And so about 2 weeks or so ago the imported version I was selling at B&H for $4500. I had one of these all set up in my B&H cart and pressed the "Submit Order" button. Due to a processing error at Bill Me Later, the order did not go through. Argh . As Bill Me Later was sorting out the error (I have a $6200 line of credit with them), I continued to watch B&H ssteadily raise the price on this item so that it is now $5000. Has the USD dropped in value that much in 2 weeks? Are retailers taking advantage of anticipated scarcity of items out of Japan? Did B&H simply raise the price on this particular item (the Version I) in order to bring it in line with the $5800 price tage of the newly released VR II? In either case, now the Bill Me Later has sorted out my account problem, the price has jumped $500 and I just can't bring myself to buying it at that price.
