0x10c With Monthly Subscription For Spaceships?
Filed under: 0X10C, MARKUS PERSSON, MOJANG
The strangely named project from Minecraft maker Markus "Notch" Persson is most likely going to charge players with monthly subscription for in-game ship ownership. Markus revealed this when speaking to the folks at PC Gamer.

His statement indicated that players will possess their spaceships within the game, although he also mentioned that players may form crews for those ships.

"The idea is kind of to allow for both. It's still not clear how we're going to monetize the game ' but the rough idea I have right now is to have an MMOish part called the multiverse," expressed Persson. "It'll probably be monthly subscription because of the cost of running all the CPUs on the server. The idea is that one subscription gives you one generator. If a CPU in the game costs us this much money to emulate then it has to consume an equal proportion of the wattage from the generator. So several people could play on one ship with one generator if they wanted. I think that'd be the most fun, but I know a lot of people just want to pilot their own ship."

Wow, that sounds... um, great?

Star Citizen has a single-player campaign, a LAN multi-player mode and will future a dynamic FREE on-line universe.

pffff, who needs that ?

sign me up for a monthly subscription of a 1999 space shooter ....and while you're at it, make me a daily appointment for colonoscopy.

In other news, Elite also looks interesting. But I'm definitely looking forward to Star Citizen.
