Star Citizen Raises Over $51 Million
Filed under: STAR CITIZEN

Star Citizen has hit the records for crowdsourced funding for a game and then decided to topple it with style. Thanks to selling some expensive digital ships, the game has raised over $51 million.

These ships are part of the Constellation lineup, which range from $150 to $350 apiece. The most expensive ship is the Constellation Phoenix, which is also a limited edition ship. Only 5,000 will be sold.

For $50 million plus, this game better blow everyone's minds.

All I gotta say is if it's even half as good as the original Wing Commanders/Privateers, I don't need blowjobs. I'll happily calibrate my own joystick.

I'm looking forward to it. But I do not understand these people dropping all this extra dough just to get fancy ships.

As it stands now, this game is gonna burn a hole through your GPU. I want Star Citizen to be good, but I do think it will turn out to be an unoptimized mess with half the promised features missing, with crappy combat and a broken economy. Cuz if they're so happy to take people's money now, they're not gonna stop after release.

I sense a huge fuck-up brewing. Perhaps the one that will turn people from funding empty promises.

But if the game does turn out to be the miracle they promise you every week on Youtube, heck, count me in. I'll buy a joystick, Oculus Rift, all that fancy shit to make the game as realistic as possible. IF...

I loved all his previous games so i became a backer. I have access to the current build, but to be honest. Wait until its release, i don't see this being ready till late 2015 or 2016. I somewhat regret spending money on it now....

Same with No man's sky, it sounds and looks great but.... usually they fail to live up to expectation by far.
