I'm sorry, but just "whipping up" an emulator that plays games, or making navigational software for flying the ship isn't going to be something a lot of people are going to be able to do. Seems like a pretty tiny niche audience to go after.
I guess we'll have to see how the rest of the game fleshes out, if it all, because right now there is nothing that I would pay a subscription fee for.
Yeah this is kind of where I'm at too. The idea sounds interesting but the video he showed awhile ago seemed really lame and certainly not worth paying a monthly fee for. I have to agree with the other poster who mentioned that its weird he seems fixated more on revenue models than anything else. A trading card game and a subscription MMO are really ehhh no thanks. Given Notchs inability to really finish ideas he starts I'll probably avoid this.
