Ah that was a good show :P

But yeah, You will likely need a gtx780i to even run this game =/

Persistantthug1039d ago

Dang...that's alot of money.

I don't even know if you can consider it indie anymore. It's almost "AAA Budget" at this point.

Just out of curiosity, did they say if this game was going to the 8th gen consoles or not?

Biozerker1039d ago

They're keeping it PC only, no chance at a console launch, looks like.

PotatoClock1038d ago

It was always going to be AAA. No indie development was intended for this title.

The first AAA space sim in a VERY long time.

WOW I said S.C. would hit $30m in ten days but it did it in 6 days!

I have a Stealth Hornet and Retaliator in my hangars so I'm good but at $32m I may pitch in more to another ship or lifetime insurance!

Squadron 42 should be kicking off soon but I will just a 300i for that!

StarCitizen in 4k is gonna be fantastic!

You watch, these guys will be driving around in Lamborghinis and they be drinking Courvoisier as they develop the game, and by the time they finish developing the game, probably $15 Million will have actually gone into the game itself.

Ha! Have you seen their behind the scene they broadcast weekly? The devs live like pigs inside their studio, not kings. Even the main dude Christ Roberts have black bag under his eyes sometimes. The money is being spent accordingly.

It's the executives of EA and Acti who do what you just described.

These guys are all about the games, not the money.

DanielGearSolid1039d ago

Ok 30 mil deserves my lofty attention /s

But seriously, what's this game about?

come_bom1039d ago

"Star Citizen is an upcoming space trading and combat simulator video game for Microsoft Windows. Star Citizen will consist of two main elements: a persistent world massively multiplayer online game mixing elements of first person space combat and interstellar trade (known as Star Citizen) and a branching single-player and drop-in co-operative multiplayer[6] campaign (known as Squadron 42), together with customizable private server components. The game will feature Oculus Rift support."

Is this along the lines of say EVE?

OrangePowerz1039d ago (Edited 1039d ago )

It`s a space opera, one part is Squadron 42 that`s a singleplayer campaign and one part will be MMO. Imagine Freelancer as an MMO, that`s at least how I think it`s going to be from the what has been shown so far.

I`m hugely looking forward to it since I love space operas.

Is a space simulator lol like we can simulate how spave works because we have been and live in space right? /s lol
It claims to be the last true pc game that will save pc gaming like if it needs any saving and talks bs aboit console, I.mean this guys hit the nail and brainwashed all hardcore pc gamers ..

By the time this game comes out it will be outdated and it will probably also be in the ps4.. even after all their claims and hate towards consoles.

It does have a interesting idea but we have to still see action gamaplay.. they have only showed a plane flying in a empty space abd a avatar walking inside the ships ..

Sadly is a pay to win game anf noting can be good from that system.

I was just answering the guy sorry to hurt the feelings of few of you my bad.

I'm playing gtav and doing the flying school and flying is actually fun in gtav I will have add spoiler alert but gtav is not on pc so pc gamers can't get spoilers from a game they can't play.. that is why I did not put spoiler alert.

Anyways the game seem to have a unique feeling to it in term of video games.. sadly is a pay to win game.. it will be when it lau"nchs some day I hope not far far away in the future.. well I'm back to gtav.. I will categorized play to have fun .. gladly is not a pay to win game.

It's basically everything Roberts wanted Freelancer to be before M$ bought Digital Anvil and rushed the game to market in 2001.

I'm curious to see what comes out of this game. If it's not a great game, a lot of people are going to be pissed.

KwietStorm1039d ago

I was just thinking that. It's one thing if a so called AAA game or a sequel from an established series disappoints. But this is being funded by the people, by a huge amount. Same goes for Mighty No.9. I don't think they could have expected this kind of response, but I wonder if they feel any added pressure.
