HARDWARE: Shipbreakers was F2P; Homeworld: Shipbreakers Isn't

Last week it was revealed that Gearbox Software has picked up the rights to HARDWARE: Shipbreakers for release as Homeworld: Shipbreakers, a new installment in the space-based RTS series. Kotaku notes a tweet by Randy Pitchford we missed at the time (thanks nin) where the Gearbox honcho reveals that this means this is no longer planned as a free-to-play game:

For a half-second I thought it was an ad, and I was trying to figure out where the rest of the article picked up again, haha

Very glad to see the Homeworld series returning.

Seems appropriate to me as well Blue. Then again, I don't instantly get annoyed by things I am not expecting or feel jarred by color schemes. I do find it highly predictable that this particular readership would prefer anything Twitter stay as far away as possible and that you make as few changes as possible in terms of the appearance of the site. Historically, we haven't handled change well.

WTF is up with the tweet spooge? This image was impossible to convey in encapsulating text or just a straight up link?

It seemed like using the Twitter embed was the easiest way to provide the context for this. I take it this has turned out to be a giant problem?

It's a bit jarring given the color scheme for the rest of the site.

I like it. It certainly draws my eyes to an article that is relevant to my interests.

My only question is why isn't there 100 comments already about how excited people are for another Homeworld game?

I read this as very good news (you know, with the usual Gearbox+Third Party caveats).
