this is reminding me of The Cup hockey this year. Pricing started out at $500+ and tons of people were shocked and didn't want to pay that. a few guys locked in at decent prices below that, but online prices seemed set. a lot expected prices to eventually drop to previous years, but it's still $500+ everywhere you look online. i'm guessing the same will hold for Exquisite. high starting price, lots of people complaining about price point hoping it will drop to reasonable levels, but probably won't.
