I hope this transfers over to the rest of the world. I would totally take advantage of this.

I'm gonna be salty as hell if this comes to America, considering I bought no less than 9 of those...

It's virtually no different than buying a game and it going on sale a month later.

Which has happened to me. I remember buying F-Zero GX for $50, then less than a week later Nintendo made it a Player's Choice title and dropped the price to $20.
