Quoted from gunstarhero:
It’s been $8k. It’s always been $8k since release. I don’t get why people EXPECTED a price drop. Would it be nice? Sure. But demand is high and they sell them as fast as they make them.
I actually did kinda think MMR would get a “Classic” edition with a price drop myself, lol.
To be honest tho, I’d be thanking CGC for selling MBR and AFMR (although AFM also didn’t sell for MM/MB money) for less (or at least having a cheaper option) rather than blasting them for keeping MMR at its price point. Yeah it’s expensive, but it’s the best.
CGC did the best they could to not devalue the existing games + they were already taking a lot of preorders so they clearly know they could sell the game at $8K without the shaker and color chip. I heard directly from PP that the display upgrade (if u already have color is $650), Topper is $600, and the lighting was $99-$199. I was confused why there was a spread on the lighting, but now I get that its only $99 if u buy the topper...I'll probably upgrade my LE (only has 75 game plays )with the topper and lighting (since its cheap)...probably pass on the display....sure would be nice if there was a trade in program
