I believe 8.5 is needed because o f certain internationalization and unicode support it provides. While this is a good sign that Apple is providing the OS infrastructure updates that app developers need, it leaves older versions behind.

In fairness the $85.99 price includes a TombRaider 2 bundled with it. OS 8 >8.1 was free, and 8.5 > 8.6 will be.
