By Dustin Dinoff of Playback, November 7th 2005. Hopefully DVD sales will be more successful. If you haven't already, now's the time to pre-order your River King DVD - it's being released on the 24th of this month in the US. The cheapest I've found is $17.24 at Video Universe though you might want to shop around.
