Actually I've seen those sold in US for at least 3 years now..

All the DivX DVD players I saw until recently were in the $500 range. There was I time I'd pay it (like I did for the dual-format VHS player), but I figured a little patience would pay off.
Of course, in the meantime, I went and bought all the movies I wanted on DVD (Ironiya Sudby, Ivan Vassilivich Menyaet Professiyu, etc). Last May I was in Kyiv, and they were selling DVDs with 9-12 different movies on the same disk. I have all of Nikulin, Mikhailkov, Menshov, and lots and lots of Soviet comedies, the various 'Dozors' and WW II and criminal shoot-em-ups.
DivX went obsolete just when I could afford it :-/
