Both of these cases are HUGE, hard to find or very expensive, whereas the Obsidian is of standard full tower dimensions, and is going to hit stores for $299 USD.

The "offical word" is Q3 2009, so some time between July and September

It was originally supposed to come out early July, but due to issues with retooling, etc. they've had to push it back.
Yeah i remember hearing something about july but nothing since. OT but the haf 922 blocks my TRUE backplate by about half an inch so that hole is kinda useless to me.
