This game seems more and more like a social experiment with the power of vapourware and feature creep.

It's official. Chris Roberts is the most successful panhandler in human history.

The Playstation 25 will be released before Star Citizen in completed.

And by that point, it will be getting the same complaints of being dated and only for diehard fans of Wing Commander that Shenmue III is getting now.

Biggest month ever? What was the cause for that? I'm sure they lump in investors with that donation amount. Maybe an investor came in with all that money? For a game as large in scope as SC, is this a project even intended to produce a profit, or is it more just donations funding an awesome (hopefully) game? Damn.
