    -------------------------------------
    My Guess

    Release Date
    October 22nd

    Price
    $500.00


    Reason
    Well, I don't think it release date will be sometime early October.. then they would actually published exact DATE. I think it will be late October and 22 seems to be a good number :)

    For the price, $500 seems to be a reasonable price that people will pay max.. but I am worried that Lightray is already $450 -_-;;

    I like the second theory on the date. Seems more reasonable.

    I still say that if it was going to be released this week, it would have already been put on order and sales reps would already at least know that. No one in the Atlanta market knows anything nor do they have a guess.

    Im going to say since they extended the drawing, that the release will be the 12th, which I think was said originally. Why? Being that it's a Friday, it's 2 days after the drawings results day and it's a week and a half a way THUS the time to put the orders in hasn't closed.

    I think thats a logical insight but then again who knows. :thinking:


    Some of these guys need to calm down, they gonna have a heart attack talking about how MAD they are cause Metro wont give a release date that THEY dont even know. lmao. I got bills to pay and a hard life just like the rest of the world, so people need to get mad about legitiment things. Aint that right Pnizzle? lol
