Homeworld Remastered Collector's Edition Preorders

Gearbox Software announces preorders are now underway on Amazon.com for Homeworld Remastered Collection Collector's Edition, and its USB-powered replica spacecraft. Word is: "Development of the game is still progressing, but we wanted to make sure Homeworld fans had a chance to reserve their copy now, as quantities are extremely limited, and these will go pretty quick!" There's also a December 31, 2014 release date listed there, but before you go and cancel your New Year's Eve plans, they confirm this is just a placeholder.

Hell, I buy everything online. It's where I get my computer parts and hardware...my computers (tablets, laptop) and electronics (Chromecast, cameras), exercise equipment (rowing machine and recumbent exercise bike), smartphones, all things purchased within the last year. The only thing I don't buy online is groceries and actually even that is being challenged; I regularly get my coffee from Amazon and since a lot of my favorite foods are up north where I used to live, I even order that down here (Wild Bill's beef jerky, Turkey Hill, etc). I still need Walmart for bulk but to be honest, they've been pushing Amazon very hard with the online market lately, so it's only a matter of time.

That being said, I don't have Prime...although I did for a time. After one particularly bad shipping fiasco I threatened to cut it and went through with it even though they did mostly reimburse me. Was way too much hassle when I get nearly as good service without it. Honestly after my latest visit to the local Costco, I've realized I want nothing to do with the masses who inhabit these locales...I guess if you like crowds of ignoramuses relying on their shopping apps you will enjoy buying things in person. I respect that some people don't have the time to do research, though.

To get back on subject, though, there's no way in hell I'm buying this. I do, of course, still have my original Homeworld CD and case, but I'm not sold on USB gizmos.

Seriously, who doesn't have Prime? Do you still buy stuff in stores or some shit?

Why would I have prime when I rarely if ever buy something physical online?

$100? SANS shipping? Are they fucking crazy?!

By the way... in Germany all Amazon orders are free shipping above 20€ value.. ;p

Unless it's "FSK18" - 5 EUROs p&p.

And too many games/movies at German Amazon are censored versions, so "free shipping" is not a reason to buy this sh... in these cases.

Very true, but for that you got digital retailers

the cheaper one was simply a shorter statue that did not light up.

It was also made out of metal instead of plastic. Disappointed they didn't go with that one :/

To be fair it's a foot-tall model with lights. That won't break the bank, but it isn't cheap.

Plus as Drifter has noted, someone certainly is buying it.

Originally they actually asked the fans if they wanted a cheaper or more expensive collectors.

Apparently the expensive one won the votes, the cheaper one was simply a shorter statue that did not light up.

But they just had to have their toy...
