There has been no official release of information on pricing and the look of the Beatles remastered box sets, but it's already starting to pop up in retailer's ads and listings.
HMV in the UK has the British stereo box online at a list price (the highest price you could expect to pay) of £204.99, which translates to roughly $331.95 at current exchange rates. But, as most dealers will do, they're selling it at a discounted price of £181.99, which translates to $296.18, roughly.
The mono set is shown at high list for £239.99, which is $374.17 at current US dollar exchange rates. HMV's discounted price is £212.99, which translates, at current exchange rates, to roughly $346.39.
HMV doesn't have pictures of the boxes, but the new printed Fest for Beatles Fans catalog does, though they're quite small and show very little detail. The pictures aren't on their website.
Of course, for American buyers, the question is how close these prices will be to what they'll have to pay.
American price information is expected shortly.
