The current Core 1000 sells for $39.99 on Newegg.com, so I wouldn't worry about it hitting $70. However it would be awesome if the new version sold for the same price. There are almost no cases with USB 3.0 under $50.

Would have loved to see 90 degrees rotated cages and have the ability to remove them in two separate sections, like the Corsair 600T.
Will be similar price to existing core1000 fercrizake they've only added a usb30 not exactly rocket science in this day and age? (uk £30-£35) Nice but not enough storage room (3 or 4 drives plz) Aerocool qs202 better

You're comparing apples to oranges. The 600T is a mid-tower, not a micro-ATX. If you want a fractal case to compare to the 600T look at the r4, you'll notice the drive cages do exactly what you're asking for.
