According to CNET the 8500 started out at $3,300 (average) and $3,000 discounted in March. In early Aug the average dropped to $2,800 with discounted sets going for about $2,500. The discounted prices have held at $2,500 for the last couple of months. Overall, I'd say the big post-release reduction has already happened. The VT60 has followed a similar pattern although it's average price is higher and discounted is slightly lower ($2,400) than the 8500. We'll probably see some more discounted prices as we approach the Christmas season but it's hard to say how much this would be or if it's worth waiting for.
