What are the available versions & differences in Chess King?

We now have the following versions:
Top of the line:
Chess King 4 for PC, Chess King 4 Pro for PC, Chess King 4 for Mac.
These versions include the top engine Houdini 4.
For the PC we have versions with previous generations of Houdini at reduced prices, but with the same interface:
Chess King 2 for PC and Chess King 3 for PC
All have also the GigaKing database and opening tree, etc.
All work with all versions of Windows incl. 8 and all are multilingual.

The ONLY difference is the engine Houdini 2 vs. Houdini 3 and Houdini 4.

Houdini 3 and 3 Pro can play Chess960 (Houdini 2 cannot due to the complex castling rules)

Houdini 2 is a 1-processor engine, rated around 3200 (still stronger than all humans)
Houdini 3 supports up to 6 cores and is rated about 3300 (a tiny bit faster since uses all cores)
Houdini 4 supports up to 6 cores and is rated about 3400 (a tiny bit faster since uses all cores)
Houdini 4 Pro supports up to 32 cores, but you need a super PC for that.
