the game isn't ruined by easy trading, the game is ruined by being a shitty game

if whiners don't like their enjoyment affected by easy trading, they can stop trading easily and go back to scrolling chat and forums and wasting far more time not playing the game, just like POE players are doing right now.

people are sensitive about things. each thing has a person somewhere who is sensitive about it.

the sum total of humanity is sensitive about everything, and if everything was censored to make everyone happy, nothing would be left. the only solution to global sensitivity (that isn't scorched earth) is tolerance.

> And what about these mysterious backers know one's knows about?

chris said he hasn't accepted big outside investment. and that his goal is to crowdfund the whole game. this is old and frequently written news


> So where is the gameplay footage in the video?? Im sick and tired of the fucking hype.

there is no game yet right? if you are irritated by watching the development process, you should not watch it

I don't think that is accurate. $14M and there is no game yet. There will be more people buying the game... when there is a game

I'm skeptical they can deliver, but I'm not skeptical they can fund it.

approximate numbers:

after a year of pre-production and a year of public development, they've got 2 years left on schedule. chris says he needs 25 million. they have 14 million?

so, 30% into the public development, and they've got 50% of their funding?

the next 365 days will see the hanger and dogfighting modules, and more finished ship and game designs than we've already seen. most everything so far is prototype or theory.

to not fund, they will need to screw up pretty badly. they must crush a lot of dreams to not get the $11M in 2 years after getting $14M in 1.

my only question is how fun will it be, and how much content will get done. we'll judge the latter on how much their announced milestones slip.

my interpretation of the current star citizen deliverable schedule as announced:
- ship hanger in august 2013
- team deathmatch in december 2013
- planet/outpost first person social multiplayer and trading: Q2 2014
- beta of the single player game: Q3 2014
- beta of the full multiplayer: Q4 2014
- gone gold: H1 2015

I'll take bets on the 2013 schedule. over/under is they slip 1 month, so hanger slips to september, tdm slips to january. choose your fate

Well... it's a beginning, and I'm glad they had some sense knocked into them by the gaming community.


As much as I'd love to say that it was gamers bitching that caused this, it really wasn't. It was places like Gamestop and Best Buy simply refusing to take Xbone preorders anymore, and actively steering people towards a PS4 (if reports are to be believed) that would have caused it. Microsoft doesn't give a flying fuck about its customers, only about publishers and retail channels.

Creston

Which are driven by customers. You are right individually they do not, collectively, it's all they got.

we can't read the minds of the people at microsoft, but we can say for certain that gamespot and others were not mad because consumers were. they were made because microsoft was going to charge them money for used game resales.

the purpose of the contested xbox one features was to steal revenue from gamestop and other used game retailers. it was not going to prevent used game sales. it was an attack on gamestop, not consumers. consumers would still buy and sell used games under this system -- and gamestop would pay microsoft to do it.
