What's your take on why people give hundreds or thousands of dollars to this project years after it was announced?
why they still do? I have not a clue. But is it the same people? or newer players seeing the demos and then deciding to take the dive into SC? Do you think the same 1.5 million backers continually spending money on the project? I mean, the backers seems to grow as the funding grows so it seems to me that it's mostly newer people dropping funds and not necessarily the same "cultist" backers spending their entire paychecks every week.
I know kxmode and a few others believe I myself have drop 22K on a game because I use a U in my nick and only post in SC threads ... frankly if I had 22K to spend on a game, I wouldn't be hanging out on the bluesnews forums, but I'll just keep loling at the DS conspiracy theory crap and calling them out on it ... I myself will most likely drop my 50$ on SC when StarMarine hits (if its any good) or when 3.0 hits as that seems to be the sweet spot in terms of what will be released at that time, I'm more a FPS player over a space sim but I did enjoy all the wing commander games. I tend to think that's what more people will do as well when more tech is finally released. I think you'll see more people willing to buy in, but as to why people funded or are still funding SC? ... well that's anyone's guess, different strokes for different folks.
What gets me though ... honestly ... is when people who what to see the project die for some reason or just want to hate bash on other people who are spending their own money on whatever they want, like they are EF Hutton with other peoples money and they are trying to stop whomever from wasting their money on .jpgs ... lol its a funny concept. Like THEY
are the ones who are going to stop it ....
But again as to why SC seems to continue to rake in the cash from players? passion from fans? Cultism? IDK ... Why do people buy CoD every year when they know its the same game? Why does Sony fan boyees bash Xbox fan boyees, and vice versa?This comment was edited on Oct 15, 2016, 17:42.
