And ordered too.... geez... I miss the good old days with the good old pricing...
@Drum18 I think it is safe to say we all miss the good old days; the sticker on the Iron Man steelbook pretty much sums it up with the "More Music, More Video, Less Price". Oh well I guess we have to work with the resources we have available for us.

Well, don't forget that this is the 4K version. I'm sure the 2D Blu-ray will be cheaper.
Also that IRON MAN price was from 2008 or 2009. That's nearly 10 years ago, and a lot more people were buying Blu-rays and DVDs than they are now.
Not to say that I like the higher price. I've got my order in, but disappointed that it doesn't include 3D. I wonder if we will get a 3D release in North America.

I'm not so sure about 3D, retailers were clearing out the 3D stocks during Black Friday week.
I'm not only talking about old titles either, popular ones like Wonder Woman were down to $19.99 and lower.
Some of the less popular titles, as in King Arthur were down to $12.99, and older ones like Suicide Squad were at $10.99 and up.

Unfortunately, I had already paid full price for those!
3D still seems to be popular in the theatres though.
They actually estimated that 70% of Last Jedi's box office came from 2D grosses this weekend, so I would consider this evidence that audiences are actively seeking out non-3D options. I know I saw it in 3D on Thursday night -- but only because I was forced to if I wanted to see it in IMAX. Which is really annoying, especially since the head of IMAX had promised they wouldn't do 3D movies anymore due to audience feedback.
That said, there's literally nothing that stands out about the 3D conversion. It was clearly done to increase revenue on Disney's end, so it shouldn't be a big loss if we don't get a 3D disc with the steelbook.
