Star Citizen Mustang Sale Poll

The Roberts Space Industries website has a poll gauging interest from Star Citizen backers in them holding a limited sale this weekend of the Mustang, the alternate starter ship that was funded as a stretch goal back when the game had a mere $28 million in crowd-funding. Apparently none of the coding for the ship is done yet (of course, neither is the game), but word is: "Since that reveal, we’ve been inundated by support tickets demanding that we sell these new ships immediately." So here's their question:

We initially opted not to sell the Mustang alongside the announcement because it is still in the concept stages. The ship has not been built in 3D in the CryEngine yet, and they will likely not appear in your Hangar for several months. There’s no cool commercial or slate of variants yet, either. But the demand has been higher than we’ve ever seen for a prototype ship before, and so we’ve decided to leave the decision in your hands.

As promised, when we launch the Mustang, existing LTI Aurora users will be allowed to swap their ships for Mustangs. An LTI Mustang badge will be distributed to everyone with a qualifying Aurora, allowing them to melt the old ship for store credit and purchase an LTI Mustang.

Should we offer the Mustang as a limited sale this weekend? Vote below to decide!

Except nothing of what you said is actually a thing. It clearly states it's going to be on sale later on when it's a more finished product and it's a startership which is hardly going to inspire envy.

The exception was the sale in December which was the end of LTI and pretty much a one time thing by the looks of it.

Oh the sweet irony...

Stop asking fans what they want it'll never stop. You'll end up like Santa Clause and the actual game will be equally non-existent (spoilers). Lock in and finish the damn thing. I liked the idea of open development when it first started, avoiding the pitfalls from a lack of feedback etc etc. A few games last year could have used some of that *coughrebirthcough*. But now the opposite problem has emerged, a design by committee endlessly expanding and nebulous concept of a game. If you want money then convince more people to preorder by showing them awesome things.

Actually it would be in Roberts interest to limit ships. That way when someone wants to resell theirs he can take a hefty cut of the profits. And I'll wager that's exactly what he intends on doing.

Well if people want to buy it then let them, but why would anyone want to buy a starter ship? Wouldn't this be your basic ship that you will be using all the time as a default ship when all others are destroyed?

Yes, sell it! Sell everything! People are apparently thrilled at the prospect of buying Yet Another Ship for a game they won't see for at least a year, so why not? Milk 'em for all they're worth.

I think what Chris is trying to tell everyone is that he's burning through cash faster than a Kardashian, so he's trying to sell everyone something they were going to get as a "free" option with something they had already paid for.

Well, he's polite enough to ask people with a poll, so, I guess there's that...

Lets see how we can make more money, thus increasing scope.

The signs of a never ending, never finished project are popping up every week.
