What the heck? link

I mean, I love the game to be sure, but… Anyway, does anyone actually *buy* stuff at that kind of ridiculously over-inflated price on Amazon, or do the sellers just get stupid and the item just sits there for ages and does nothing?

well, you can get it used on the same page for $9.95.

Yeah, I saw after I posted this. But that just kinda drives the point home: what the hell is it with some of these Amazon sellers??

They are idiots? Same for ebayers.

BTW I love the Homeworld games, though they tend to frustrate me quickly. I get a few levels in and wind up stopping. Ergh! I also have the soundtrack, which is awesome.

There are oddly militant types on Amazon that keep trying to get Amazon to police the prices which people are charging. Extra silly.

Caveat Emptor, I suppose. Sometimes I can use hyper-inflated prices to my advantage (not on Amazon, but elsewhere.) It's simple economics: Undercut the other guys! If some fool's trying to get $100 USD for something that's only worth $20, I can flog it for $60 USD and look like I'm offering a deep discount!
