Yes, the sales pitch from day one was "Dec. 31st they will be GONE!" But will retailers really pull the ones that didn't sell off of their shelves? I highly doubt it...
I think the price drop is due to #1 so that they can fulfill their "promise" that they'll be gone by year's end. Otherwise they have to come up with a spin on yet another falsehood.
