Just looked to confirm... perhaps this was an error? It would be really odd if they specifically announced to the press it was a one-time increase and then charged that amount for the next 3 PPV events in a row ...

Averaging just 400,000 buys would give the greedy bastards an extra $2 million an event.

They realized that the people who pay for the ppv will pay for them no matter what.

That's why they increased the price. They can't get more people to buy so they slightly increase because they know the loyal fans who always buy PPVs will still buy them. In the long run, it'll lead to a profit. Econ 101 bitch.
