Star Citizen Passes $4.2MM

A post on the Roberts Space Industries Website announces that Star Citizen has attracted more than $4 million in funding from fans eager for a new space combat game from the creator of Wing Commander. The post outlines additional stretch goals beyond that point, and a follow-up announces another system is unlocked, and says they now have stretch goals all the way to the $5 million mark. Finally, the latest update announces that having passed $4.2 million, they have climbed to the top of the crowd-sourcing mountain:

$4.2 million! Which means that Star Citizen is now the highest crowd-funded game project ever! You’ve earned this star system, and a lot more! Let’s go for $4.5! By the way: you guys are now unlocking systems faster than our artists can finish them… we promise we’ll add the missing concepts in the near future.

This is quite impressive. The real question to my mind is how this game will sell once released. In other words, what percentage of the game's audience are already backers? Are there enough people like me - who are interested but would rather wait to buy the game when it is released - to make it successful when it is launched? Obviously 60,000 sales is nowhere near enough to make it a success that would make big publishers re-think their stance on complex space sims.
