Was there really a need to make lots off early loyal buyers not to happy about that?

Or is it you the Einstein with all off yours long time prediction (most off them already happened), who could not predict than in only about 2 weeks after introduction the 200 series is going to drop price big time?
Nobody knew how GTX280 and HD4870 will perform till we saw official reviews. But from my experience with HD4870, it's crap compared to GTX280. The price difference is there for a reason.
