Say what? Excuse me for a minute. Are you trying to tell me that Poser4 was 399 dollars roughly? I would check, because when I bought Poser4..it was 249.00 USD. So if I go to Zygote, I will get the same product, at the same price I originally bought it for, and save somehow 149.99. :) Is it a typo or something?
I got Poser4 through Zygote. But the free cd was out of print and I'm waiting for it to be sent to me. I have seen it from $189 to $260, but never in stock cause of the product recall by it's new owners. Till Curious Labs lets it out in their boxes, Zygotes got the connection to get it for those who don' have it. If you didn't own it already..and couldn't find it anywhere, how would you feel, how much would you pay for it? I wouldn't pay more than $250, but I am HAPPY that I was able to purchase Poser4!! Because now I can use it to create things myself, instead of just looking at the galleries of others, wishing that I could.
The thing with pricing is quite complex. Companies offer a product at MSRP, but as it states, it's just a suggested retail price. With the web bringing more competition in, and resellers vying for a few deals, it's common to see online stores and resellers alike offer discounts. Take Amapi for instance, if you visit the websites of the various authorized and online resellers you'll likely find a price known as the street price. And it's a whole range of prices, really. So if you wish you could have Amapi but don't think you can afford $399, look around, and you'll be surprised. Dito for Poser, Bryce and anything that's sold through competing resellers and online stores. -Philip
Someone might want to take this particular item off of the site. I bought Poser about 1 1/2 weeks ago. The salesperson on the other end of the phone told me that this promotion did not exist. When I asked to speak to Doug, I was informed that he did not work for the company.
i dont remember what i paid, but i ordered it from macmall. 2 weeks later it was still on back order and this during the release date of p4. I was starting to sweat, didnt think i would get it. checked with metacreations and they had it in stock. cancelled macmalls and ordered direct from meta, my point, buy it, its worth its weight in gold.
