    Hope you're not implying they need more money to make the game. 

     

    More to the point; throwing that kind of scratch into this is reckless (IMO) at this point. Release the game and THEN offer this up. Maybe then I'll be tempted, until that point, they've got enough of my money.

    after starting to develop an own language, they now decided to actually produce all those ships IRL.

    so yea, quite a few million missing there, even tho they asked india to produce em for them :P

    I heard that the true game lovers  put like 2-3k in the game and some claimed 8k.

    - it's a pledge and the Retaliator is the reward

    -  to reach a real triple A budget they still need approximately 100 million $

    - too expensive for you then get a 30$ basic pack and you're good to go. Every ship available in game for ingame credits on launch

    Blue - more like a tithe; staunch supporters post like religious zealots.

    Green - thats not even close to being a problem, mostly because I don't give out money haphazardly.

    Tithe or pledge it's still a leap of faith. Whales have always been in games, you could make thousands a month in eq 15 years ago. Game developpers managed to find ways to grab that money for themselves, I am glad for them.

    No, true game lovers bought games and played them.

    Who is the bigger sports fan?  The season ticket holder, or the guy in the nosebleeds?  You can't just blindly state that the person with more discretionary cash is a bigger fan.

    Or was this an actual attempt at guilt tripping gamers into shelling out $350 for something they may or may not see?

    Thank you for the laugh though!  But now I must go clean my monitor of coffee.

    A comment like this from someone who is, presumably, involved with the development of the game, makes me want to tell my gaming friends to NOT touch this game in any way shape or form.  So you're basically saying that anybody who likes video games should be giving thousands of dollars to products that have not launched yet.

    Like somebody else mentioned, if somebody spends 2-8k to help fund a video game, they should be expecting to buy ownership into the company, not a few pixels.  This is borderline offensive to suggest that we should all be giving you thousands of dollars because we love games, and will therefore love Star Citizen.

    Is it beyond people to understand that some people have enough disposable income that $350 really isn't anything? A weekend golfing costs more than just about all the ships, a meal or a couple meals at a nice restaurant would easily cover the cost of any of the ships. Many people have hobbies or interests that are far more expensive than what we are now paying for with Star Citizen. I never hear people QQ'ing and getting all crazed over the cost to take your family to see a professional sports game, including memorabilia + food + drinks + parking, that is a few hundred dollars easy. 

    We are not buying ships as some of you may believe, we are developing a game that we want. CR and his team have a vision that many people share and many people are willing to give in order to see that vision come to fruition. 

    As someone else has stated, none of you have to spend a dime, we will foot the bill so you can play a kickass game.

    Any word on when they'll be an actual game for all these expensive goodies?

    Lazydazed, just becuz you do not see or hear people complain about the costs of things does not mean nobody complains. All it means is you are either not being truthful or you are simply out of the loop.
    As a consumer, not just a gamer, when a market sees that there are those who are willing to pay more for a product than before, they will usually raise prices. Example: gas prices go up due to many factors, but let us dwell on cost per barrel. Barrel cost goes up, gas prices go up. Over time, this becomes the new normal. Like high unemployemnt rates. Retailors have no need to lower prices since demand has not gone down.
    If gamers didn't pay thousands of dollars for virtual items, developers would never be able to sell them at those prices. All it takes is a few to move the curve higher.

    Only $350? I am just going to call my uncle Santa and buy me 12 of them, one for each month, piece of cake.

    Or do you honestly think it's stupid to reward people that pledge? That'l get the game funded....dont give them anything.

    With AAA titles costing 200mil I find it pretty stupid people would be criticising RSI for making money.

     

    LTI will be incredibly powerfull. I dont want everyone having it. There needs to be an incentive for the normal population to stay alive.

    So... its pay2win? I thought that was a bad thing...

    Show me a game then you can sell me more ships
  • Asm0deusAsm0deus Member EpicPosts: 3,237

    While I am a fan of the game, I even bought an avenger when they were part of a package, the new concept ships which will have LTI seem to target more the deep pocket whales than the average joe like myself.

    Not sure how I feel now that they seem to be like "bah you cant spend more than 100-200$ on a ship we got no LTI ship for you or any new ones for that matter....

     

    Would be cool if they stopped being retarded and offered a stand alone LTI purchase option for all the ships available, they can't really claim it was "worthless perk" for kick starter backers anymore....

    Brenics ~ Just to point out I do believe Chris Roberts is going down as the man who cheated backers and took down crowdfunding for gaming.

    Is there actually a game in development or are they just selling digital models of ships?

    Pretty cheap for a star ship, I'd expect them to cost millions if not billions, but mere 350$

    in case you didnt know, its an in game mount, not a real life prototype ship.

     

    Oh, my bad, I thought they are going to ship me a real space ship I can fly to another solar system :( Thought finally I can go see some more interesting corners of the galaxy but no, damn Roberts, had I known this everytime I called someone a troll when they bashed Roberts "SPACE INDUSTRIES" - Cant even trust the internets these days...

    Only on page 2 of this thread but in case no one mentioned it yet, the above comment had me burst out laughing at work, good job sir.

    I can't help but think South Park had this project in the back of there minds when they made fun of kickstarter on there season opener.

    bingo, there is no game in development, they are just selling digital models of ships and you just blew their cover!

    May I also add, you are particularly funny smart and original.

    Give it a month and they'll release a $500 ship.

    Start saving. ;-)

    Am I the only person watching this thread that is actually a backer? I guess I'll have to chime in:

    First, yes their is an actual game that can be played right now. It's called the Dogfighting Module, module because it is one part of the whole game to be released. Their is single and multiplayer parts of it to be played right now.

    Second, this new ship is a backer-voted strech goal from a few months ago. Their will be a few more coming in the next few months I'm sure. This game will need many different types of ships to make it feel like a real universe. Can you imagine only having 3-4 different types of ships? I can't.

    Thirdly, any ship that can be bought for real money can be earned in-game. So no pay-to-win there.

    Forthlyimage, I agree that the ship prices are ridiculous . But if I can buy them in-game for in-game credits then so what if Joe Trustfund spends X amount of dollars on digital items? A fool and his money for sure, but not hurting my time in-game.

    Fithlyimage, and most importantly, WE NEED WHALES! I want stupid people with more money than sense paying my way to help make this game as good as has been promised. I've spent about $150 total I think in this game so far, bought the cheapest ship (Aurora LX-LTI) plus some other crap and I do not plan to spend another dime until launch of at least Squadron 42 (SP game that released before the Persistent Universe). So hurray to all the folks that have money to burn, burn it on SC!

    Bartoni's Law definition: As an Internet discussion grows volatile, the probability of a comparison involving Donald Trump approaches 1.

    And what kind of advantage does said whales have over the plebs that have to earn their stuff the old fashioned way?
