Considering the usual price of single soundtracks, the price on that set doesn't seem so bad.

I love the music in the Gradius series.  This is much more reasonable than most box sets, and a steal considering the usual 3,000-4,000 price of single disks.  Still a bit out of my allowable range though, and is going to become an icon of wishful thinking like the Makaimura box set.  :(

The way the USD is headed that might be a $200 box set by the time it comes out.   :whyioughtta:

Yen has weakened a bit lately - it's over 84 yen to a dollar now. Weeks/months back it was in the 81 ~ 82 range.
