Pictures, Videos, and more Information on Pleo.
[UPDATE 06-27-2007] - Best Buy changed the price to $349. I don't know if the $299 price was a misprint or short term discount, but as of now their price is the same as everyone else in the US.
A friend of mine was kind enough to tip me off to a substantial discount price he found for Pleo. Apparently Best Buy has found a way to offer our favorite green dino buddy for a full $50 USD less than the average street price. I haven't found out why Best Buy and Amazon list it as the Senario Pleo, but it is indeed a true blue Pleo from Ugobe. Well true green that is. Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and Wal-Mart are all listed by Ugobe in the Pleo preorder press release as official distributors for the USA.
As far as I know, only the Ugobe store has the First Hatch edition Pleos, which you still need a coupon code for to get one. I'll keep you up to date with the latest pricing information I find and put it on the page I'm maintaing for those who want to buy Pleo.
For those of you that haven't seen it yet, here is the latest Pleo video, direct from Pleo Wo which is Ugobe's official user community site. It is the highest quality video yet and also shows two Pleos interacting. It's also mercilessly cute:
