I'm sorry to disagree with this 42$ thing.
Adding one layer to a cube requires to have a much more complicated rotating system than the previous system.
So I think it's more an exponential that linear relaitonship between the number of layers of a cube and its price. ;-)

As long as the price isnt $100 or above, the sides turn very well, and the puzzle is stable, I would buy one! I would love to own one, just toy play with it, even if i dont speedsolve it.

Well, it will be quite popular. We will have to see when I comes out.

Gilles: Notice how it is exponential?!?!?!

Everyone else: It will be solved the same as any other puzzle bigger than 3x3...Centers, edges, solve as 3x3, as you get to bigger cubes you almost have to do this...Edges first starts to fail...And yes...I need one...

I would solve it like this:

2 opposite centers
2 other opposite centers
2 last centers
Put all the edges together
Solve 3x3
Fix Parity

I know it works, how do you think I solved a 40x40? :p

Why would Per's cage method be worse for bigger cubes than the traditional centers first method ?

because you'd have ALOT more center piece to work with i think, i dunno.
Yeah, I think you would be right if Per relied only on 3-cycles of single pieces to solve the center. But considering he doesn't 3-cycle single blocks all the time, he also cycles blocks of pieces, I think his method woudl still be very efficient.

The price of the 6x6 is going to be between $42-$100, I got that straight from the makers ;)
