It doesn't matter if they're needed or not. What matters is Murray repeatedly promised them as core gameplay features that would be available at launch. In terms of "realism usually is a slog," I agree. However, in this case, they remain outstanding launch items. Once added all would be forgiven because with them No Man's Sky will finally be the game that Murray pitched.
