A couple of questions:

 

Why the two box colors for Astro Invader and the different discount price for each?

 

Some titles on the CollectorVision site are listed as "Sold Out" and some are "Discontinued." What's the difference?

 

Thanks in advance for clearing things up!

Also looks like the price has been dropped to 65 USD from
77 USD.

Will everyone who purchased at 77 USD get a Refund of 12 USD?

I'm not sure where you got that information but nothing was changed.   The original listing is for the purple box at $65 and the Variant Red box is at $70.

 

The difference in pricing is simply because it is a variant.  Thank you

Is the box art different like with Princess Quest or is it just the red instead of purple?

Thanks you for the clarification, it may have been a paypal error on my part..

It is just the color of the box and artwork. Cheers

WWW site says "Note that this game will start shipping end of June" for the purple one (though it appears that Steve Jones already got his) and the red one was end of June/early July.

While I think doing a color varient is a cool idea, I thought the purple box was the better looking one all along. That may just be because there are already so many red boxed Intellivision games though. Either way, CollectorVision does great work with their designs.

All I can say about this release is, "WOW!"

 

Beautiful artwork.  AWESOME game play.  This is my new favorite Intellivision game.  It's like the original arcade game was made for this platform.  Amazing.  Congratulations on this.

 

Here's mine it all its glory:

Wow! Just played a few rounds, and this plays really well with my Sega Genesis 3 button. Thanks to the developer for making this game and thanks again to grips03 for his Sega to Intellivision Controller Adapter. :)
