Chris Roberts' Star Citizen doesn't show any hint of stopping or even slowing down its crowd funding cavalcade. The game has now shattered the mind boggling barrier of 27 million dollars pledged by its fans.
Ha! And companies continued to thumb their noses at space-sim fans for all these years. Your loss.
I hope this game comes to consoles.
Not going to happen.
No... just no. Really. No. Did I say "No"? Because no.
Why not? More money yes?
Because the 27 million they got was pc gamer and they don'T care about baby toys?
I really need to donate and get in on this
There's a special sale before the 26th
What is on sale? I am interested in buying it.
link? dont see anything on the site about a sale
It hasn't started yet... and Idk exactly what will be on sale, but rumors say that it's going to be VERY rare alien ships and some exclusive ships that have been sold only for short periods of time.
Why the hell do they need this much cash again?!
Well compare to gta its a pittance ... Everyone seriously barage Chris with ps4 port requests ... He already had wing commander on ps and hes hinted at accepting this ...
No he hasn't. He only said maybe. And even then, you shouldn't get your hopes up. He's making this game for PC only.
how is maybe different than "hinting at being accepting of this"... it doesn't matter to me either way but ps4 version would be cool.
The whole game is already funded. Right now people are just buying what they are selling. I bought mine a few months ago. For about $40 or $45 you get the game when it comes out access to the beta, and the alpha.
The money they are earning now is being made to develop content that were planned to be added later on, but is now being made for the game's release in early 2015. The base game as been paid off for already, so Chris decided the extra cash will be used to get as much content in the game as possible while still staying on schedule.
Thats actually my problem the release schedule,instead of adding more stuff i just wished they start contracting more programers because frankly i almost sure this game will not meet the release schedule. They should focus on releasing Squadron 42 mission base game and then focus on open galaxy advancements
@deadfrag They are. They just opened up a new studio in Manchester. That's in addition to their studios in Austin, and Los Angelos. Plus, they've been contracting a few other companies, such has Behaviour Interactive, to do some of the stuff for them. They've probably got over 100 people working on the game right now.
What game could this be compared to?
At first it was just a space sim, but now it can't be compared to anything. There's nothing really like it since you can land on planets, fly in space, get off (or out) of your ship, manage trade routes. This game will be unlike anything else out there.
The X Series and Eve Online would be the closest thing I could compare it too but even then StarCitizen is pushing the Space Trading/Combat Sim thing to astronomical proportions. Oh I guess Elite:Dangerous can be compared to SC but Elite:Dangerous is still in development too. Good times ahead for space sim fans X-Rebirth StarCitizen Elite:Dangerous
The only thing I can think of that is remotely close to this is Entropia Universe.
i hope this game does not come to consoles and become bastardazied for PC in the process. PC gamers funded 27 million we deserve an uncompromised version of the game. Furthermore, if they announced a console version then you would know that they are using money pledged by PC gamers to make a console game. That is so wrong on so many levels that Id rather not even think about it.
This is what CCP (the makers of EVE Online) did. They used money from PC gamers that are paying for EVE Online, to make a PS3 exclusive game (Dust 514). And now, their latest game (EVE Valkyrie) might be a multiplatform game, which means that they are using money they made from PC gamers again to make this game.
Well I am glad that I never supported the EVE douches then. I hope CR does not spend our money to bring the game to consoles. There is a lot that can be improved for the current version of SC. Addition of atmospheric flight being one of them. Or more ships/weapons/planets/alien races... you name it. the possibilities are endless. I hope you guys post on the forum and ask CR to use the funds for stuff like this rather than to bring it to player base (consoles) that didnt donate 1 cent.
That's great! Make the game for consoles=More money= More Content.
COrrection - That's great! just go build a Gaming PC and play StarCitizen in all it's Glory on the PC = More Money = More Content and donate to the StarCitizen kick starter fund = More money = More Content Just look at Diablo III x360/PS3 sales figures. barely 500k across two platforms pretty much WASTED BLIZZARDS time. Consoles are NOT the big money makers for every game which is why the PC has so many Exclusives and genres that stay on PC. two different gaming worlds my friend.
I'd rather have less content less simplified than more content more simplified. Thing is going to remain on the PC where it should be, no offense.
@dcj0524 We do not want your type of content. DLC packs for 5-15$ that barely add anything to the game. You guys pay for internet twice, you pay for season passes, and you pay for DLC that should have been in the game. Hell sometimes you pay for DLC on DISC. Well ill tell you i hate the word DLC. You can keep your cancer on your platform we do not want it. PC players play expansions. We dont give a shit about your DLC. And that is actually yet another reason why console version of this game should not exist. Only thing it will do is make CR milk these fools for money and screw us over in the process too.
Looking forward to X Rebirth this Friday and whenever Star Citizen comes out..
