Yeah that stuff blows my mind. It's as if some people have never played these games before. I've also talked to a few people and some of it is just crazy clueless dreamy idealistic thoughts of how the game "will play" in their mind, based upon the high minded chat sessions RSI has done.
I went in for $60 because I want the game to happen and that's what I'll pay for a game. Though honestly I'm not looking for a MMO experience or anything like the X series. I hope the single player combat campaign aspect is not neglected.
I'm also hoping that this game's seeming success and apparent public interest spurs some major new developments in the space shooter genre again. Sort of like what Wing Commander and X-Wing did in the '90s.
