Absolutely insane but as a business owner...I'd probably do the same exact thing. Their product isn't a game but the concept. As long as people keep buying it, they won't stop selling it. At this point they're just seeing how far their customers would go to buy the product. Smart. Screwed up...but Smart.

Time to think of a new scheme, Chris.

Never will this be released. How many millions did they raise? How many years in development?

$188 Million.  6 years in development.  And a horribly broken pre-alpha build.

This game will probably end up with only three players left running it, the three who've spent that 27 grand desperately trying to beat each other, but with them unable to do so because they've all three got the pay to win cheat code lol.

They should have called the long-promised Squadron 42 expansion 419 Squadron, at least that would have given people a bit of a clue lol

Announcing the all new Star Citizen add-on:

Nigerian Space Prince - You play a character who has inherited 27 Million Space Dollars, but for some inexplicable reason your character does not have a basic intergalactic bank account they are able to use; thus your mission is to find other wealthy people in the galaxy who will lend you their bank account details so you can transfer your fortune to Cloud Imperium Games....erm I mean, erm, oh, let's think.... got it, to transfer your fortune to, erm.... other sectors of the galaxy with their assistance.

Another quote I've liked over the years (I live in Florida, the scam and fraud epicenter of the U.S.)

While I understand the amazement, I really don't understand why people are so horrified about this move. You're not forced to purchase anything. This is an offer. 

In my opinion, Star Citizen is not a 'circle in the drain' or vaporware of whatever adjective you fling at it. There's a clear plan for the development of the game, and they've actually come pretty far. I myself, is a backer (although only for the cheapest option!) and I certainly enjoy logging in, and flying around and landing on the available planets etc... 

Yes, it's far from finished and yes, there's a long way to go yet. But they regularly release updates, they have quarterly monthly feature updates and there's new features and fixes coming quite fast. 

Sometimes I get the feeling, that people who is so horrified and appalled about Star Citizen, is the ones who actually doesn't follow the development and news cycle of the game. It's a bit sad, since I they then end up spreading highly subjective, false information, which quickly leads to a feeding frenzy, with pathos tones arguments flying everywhere, which isn't based in fact or truth, but rather based on feelings and quickly developed opinions about what this software does and don't. The discussion evolves into a blame game, which blames the developers (RSI) and claims that everything from they're wasting their backers money to that the whole thing is one big scam operation... 

I'm sorry for this post, but I just felt it needed to be said.

$188 Million, 6 years and really nothing to show for it. $27,000 for some JPEGs. 

Funny, Vancouver was able to complete a rapid transit corridor in 4 years, 20 km long, majority tunneled, albeit for over $2.0 Billion. 

I would surmise that for $188 Million and 6 years, you would have the ultimate video game.

What do you mean 'nothing to show for it'??? 

Please stop stating your own personal opinion as fact!! 
This is exactly the kind of subjective information, which is being spread.

I backed this when it was first Kickstarted for the minimum amount and haven't spend a single penny since then.  I think that calling it Vapourware is a little bit of a stretch, progress is slow it's almost measurable in geological timescales; but this aside clear progress is being made.  Chris Roberts is the problem, he is almost certainly the American Peter Molyneux, the original game sounded like a slightly more in depth Elite with a larger focus on combat, the current game sounds like second life set in space mixed with P3D and Doom, sounds awesome but the more they pile on the longer it will take.
