It's worth a shot for $30 shipped. We'll see what happens. Thanks.

29.26 shipped. Worse that can happen is they cancel it, right?

You know what? Fuck it. I can't turn this down for $30, if only to say I got a Blu-ray player for $30.

Is this one of the models that got upgraded to decode DTS HD-MA? Because if it is, it would actually be very useful for me.

In for two. From what I've read, it doesn't support DTS-HD OR Dolby TrueHD, but please, correct me if I'm wrong... worth an experiment, in any case, at that price.

already got a ps3, but $30 for a backup player can't be beat. here's hoping we all actually get it.

Decided to give it a shot. Like you guys said, the worst that can happen is that they cancel the order.

In for 1. I selected next day shipping. $65 for shipping is a little extreme, but I still come out ahead.

Well, the deal now just hit FatWallet and SlickDeals, so some assrag will likely soon place an order for 50 and try and sell them all on craigslist, screwing the deal for everyone...

but hey... I don't expect to get it, quite honestly, but I'll take a "thanks for the offer, we screwed up, you won't get it, but here is a nifty coupon".

shit we missed the deal. I think they realized they made a mistake. Technically they have to honor the price. You are all lucky bastards lol.

They dont technically have to honor anything. The agreement you "sign" when you make a purchase states that they may change the price and cancel your order at any time.
