    I just tossed on a pair of skins myself. The stress the web server seems to be under right now though is pretty crazy. I've had to re-load each page after it times out the first time. So glad to see the game is getting so much attention.

    One thing i like about this game is its made for the PC and cant be made for a ****ty console. DICE need to learn from this:)

    I mean wow, An unbelievable amount of money generated! A huge success for PC gaming and space sims. Publishers had better start paying attention, if a niche product like this can raise 6.2 million...the winds of change are blowing in the PC gaming industry. Crowd funding has only barely begun to scratch the surface of becoming a popular idea and we are already approaching the 10 million mark raised for a single PC game.

    About bloody time we had another crysis type of game principally.

    I the end i pledged $365 on this game, Worth the investment, Worth the risk.

    As for anything generic i wont buy it, I wont play it, I wont even Pirate it for free, Waste of the time the majority of titles today.

    I pledged also, can't wait. Some of my fondest memories are playing Wing Commander on my old pentium 75 :)
    Crowdfunding is the best thing to hit gaming in such a long time. Developers are no longer under publishers iron fist, they will have the creative freedom to truly innovate. I get excited thinking about the possibilities.
    Hopefully someone makes a stealth ninja game like tenchu for the pc made to the standard of thief 1 and 2 and developed with sophisticated gameplay and pc hardware in mind. I've had this dream for years and i'm surprised noone has ever done it on the PC. (Mark of the Ninja doesn't count)

    Yeah the great thing is the people who pledged get life-insurance for there ship(s) so if you get blown out of the sky then your ship is ready to re-use again back at the hanger.

    On a side note im still backing Elite Dangerous also so far im at £150, Wont be going any higher or any lower, This is another game that HAS to be made.

    Just to let you guys know... RobertSpaceIndustries have re-opened the pledge ships with Free Insurance and Garage storage for a Short time more - due to their site going down and pledging being so hard during the last stretch of Crowd Funding.

    I expect this will last a Max of 48 hours, maybe less. You can still use someones referral to get a chance to win some of those prizes I mentioned in the earlier post - My Referral again for any who need it:

    http://www.robertsspaceindustries.com/star-citizen/?rid=35885

    NOTE: that Certain Ships (the ones that are Not: Aurora, Origin 300i, Freelancer, Hornet, Constellation) will never be available to buy for cash ever again - or come with the Free Life Insurance and storage. (but can still be either captured and earned in game still)

    After this last grace period, you can still buy ships etc, but it will cost a bit more and will not have Free Insurance etc. Also Alpha and Beta testing have limited spaces

    You can tell easily when this Grace Period has ended as most ships will Then state they come with 6 or maybe 12 months of Insurance (at this time the Cheapest ship does not mention any insurance as it comes with none.)

    EDIT: Easy Ship info on Most ships:
    http://starcitizen.wikia.com/wiki/Category:Ships


    Yeah, I would be tempted to put some money into Elite Dangerous as well, but I think you can guess where all my spare cash just went ;)

    The poster on here who goes by the name of Brasky asked me for my username and email for the referral page on Star Citizens official forum in a PM.

    I told him he must have thought i was born yesterday and there was no need for him to ask for my Details.

    I still have the PM from him and my reply.

    Sounds to me like a potential scammer, Beware of this poster i would people.

    Sound Steven, so the more people that i refer to this game i get entered into a competition? Is that correct?

    If so what could i win?

    If this is the case then Brasky should have said this in his PM instead of just asking for my credentials with no explanation.

    I havent checked the SC website for a while as the game is around 1 year away so i thought no need.

    I see i get it now, Just had alook, They give your your own unique url, Ill send this to Brasky.

    Thanks for the info Steven.

    Brasky if your reading this apologies for the confusion but im sure you can understand why i reacted in the way i did.
    Haha i may have spent alot on this game but there were people out there mainly from the USA who spent much much more than me, some spent over $5000!!


    And there was a few that spend over $10000!!

    Anyhow 2014 is going to be a great year for gaming with this game and Elite Dangerous as well as all the other stuff like GTA5 etc.

    I'm really concerned- This guy raised over 7 million for the development of this game, and there are going to be addon ships available for people to buy and some of these ships cost over $100 to purchase- WTF?
