    I noticed this over at SlickDeals. DDD has two versions of S3, one for $36.59 and one for $73.19. The cheaper one isn't going to be released until 01/31/06.

    costs less

    costs more

    Is the price for X-Files going down permanently?

    Season's 1-3 which are coming out in January are repackaged in thinpaks.

    Other than that, I think they are identical. Aren't more and more box sets being issued that way? Have there been problems with them?

    The price has been halved. I'd like to see that happen more often.

    Me too. I've always wanted the X-files but the previous price was a bit steep. Are they eventually releasing them all?

    Well, several more seasons are out now (all at the higher price), but I have no idea what the plans are for further seasons. I already have 1 & 2, and I'll jump at this price for season 3.

    I can't see Fox changing the packaging and price on only 1/3 of the run. It seems like they will break up the series' price reduction into three groups.

    Since they're dropping the price on the first three in January, I'd guess that Four, Five and Six will be put in thin packs and reduced in price in the spring or so and then the last three years will have the change in the summer or fall. I'm completely guessing though.

    I wonder how this will effect the sales of the non-price-reduced season sets? I know I wouldn't touch them after seeing the prices on seasons 1-3.

    I'm sure the sales on the other seasons will be almost non-existant. Another reason why Fox will almost definitely drop the prices on those too. [​IMG]
