Whoa, I totally missed this virtual credits thing.

Want a new ship, buy it with real money?

I dont belive its real money, from his interview he stated you can buy ships from the virtual market with in game money on the market. I never heard him say real money.

The explanation of it is a bit confusing. On the one hand he says:
But the cardinal rule regarding “in-game purchases” is: Players who spend money purchasing in-game credits will have no advantage over players who spend time!
On the other, he says:
Everything is bought with in-game credits. These purchases won’t offer any advantage over someone who puts in the “game-time” to earn the same amount of credits.

It could be that he's not considering getting something in a lot less time to be an "advantage" - although I certainly would say it is. But since ships are bought using credits, and you can buy credits with real money, you can definitely use real money to buy ships.
