I don't think it's a matter of being "smart" but what it costs. They've been selling the pre-ordered cards at a loss, then new orders at break-even. With the increase in demand they've had to switch to professional manufacturing to meet the demand which adds further costs.

Even at 250 I'm not sure they're making any money out of it, just covering costs plus a tiny safety margin.

I have a Furia and a Vampire 2 (600, post-preorder price) by the way and I'm very glad that I bought it ages ago! However the new higher prices wouldn't deter me now and I'm still wanting one for my A1200, CD32 & A4000D
