This is FLUID! (trying to make a pun by not making sense)

Love the graphics, water physics and sense of speed. Definitely buying tomorrow.

BTW I'm horrible at time conversion so... I'm in Sydney so will I be able to buy this after midday tomorrow? (assuming there's no 'item being modified' message)

This will be the most exciting racing game I've played on any console (judged by the gameplay video) since Burnout Paradise.

Not that this doesn't look like it's worth the money, but was anyone else expecting this at around $2.99? My wallet is distraught.
