Looks like they could be under £20 for us in the UK then, classic titles to be under £15.
Not holding my breath though, will probably end up 30% more expensive.

The quotes of $23.45 and $17.95 are wholesale prices, so it'll likely be $35 for new titles, and $29 for catalogue from the consumer's point of view.
There's to be no MSRP on titles in the States however so retailers will be free to charge as much, or as little, as they wish. In the UK I could see that unfairly translating to £35 and £29 respectively (or at best £30 and £25), but it'll be a cold day in hell before I ever buy 50hz/25p content so I can't say that I am personally too concerned what happens on our own turf, though I do wish region coding was a thing of the past as if the region3 market for HD becomes as fruitful as it has been with DVD it would be nice to have better access to a catalogue of Asian cinema in Hi Def.
