Dude, you're talking about making money from the game after you've sold the game. of course you're going to make more than someone whose just selling a game.

Not that anyone simply sells a game anymore.

judging by Wing Commander and Freelancer, it'll be a helluva ride. The MP will probably sine as well.

"Unlike with a publisher, you can't pull the wool over their eyes because it's the real people who are going to be playing it," Roberts noted. "If you're a publisher you can visit me and I can show you the milestone, but you have no idea if behind the scenes I've got it jury-rigged or whatever. Whereas with the real community, there's no way."

THIS is the main reason why I'm so pumped for this game. Not only do I have the privilege, as a backer (Vice Admiral, bitches), of seeing the REAL-TIME progress being made on the game, I also get to voice my suggestions and concerns DIRECTLY to the developers themselves, without any of the typical middleman "suits".

If you're NOT enthusiastic for this game, you simply aren't paying attention.
