It will be available from Orbx on the 15th of December 2015, once the exclusivity deal runs out.


Great timing so us DVD'rs can budget it for a Xmas bonus.

Doubt it will be on "holiday sale" as a new product (in fact I'm not holding my breath that ORBx will offer a holiday sale :(  ), but would make a nice stocking bonus regardless.
