The PS4 is actually the first Sony console not sold at a loss, which is why it was and is so underpowered.

This: >>16472928

The PS3 on the other hand was sold at a fantastic loss, so was the 360. When those came out they were arguably a bit ahead of most high-end PCs for a few months.

I don't think any of the current consoles are sold at a loss, which is an unusual situation for consoles and it shows in unspectacular hardware.

To bring it back to topic, Star Citizen is supposed to be a PC exclusive and what little of it there is to "play" runs incredibly badly. Unlike a "so bad it's good" movie, though, it's not worth the price of admission.

you guys are going to feel really fucking dumb when this game releases next year and those ships are several million USD EACH!

It's like buying bitcoin for $0.02 and then selling when it hits $10k/per. I've invested about $20,000 into various ships and when the game comes out I'll sell them and be a millionaire.

Sometimes I like to imagine I would make a game with a cosmetic system that would basically be a slap to companies like blizzard and hirez when it comes to the cosmetic delivery, first it would have a single player component, if it were some kind of hero/character thing at least each new one would need a mini arc, then when it comes to multiplayer and the dreaded loot system I would literally only make chests cost in-game non-premium (never premium) currency, but then I would make it so chests are just cheaper but random while skins cost X amount, I would even place the "this skin is always available" or something.

The problem is that the combat doesn't really allow for much in the way of player expression, all you can do is strafe and fire broadsides and once you get your second ship you're pretty much invulnerable so the combat loses all its appeal. I hope being able to play as a fighter improves the sequel, but the jump to EGS is a serious concern even if I'm going to pirate it.

>What is a intelligent way to invest in games then?

Day-1 collector's editions. Don't even play or open the game, just buy the Legendary Ultra Collector's Edition (game not included) for 400$ and keep it shrink-wrapped for twenty years. You'll thank me later, trust me.

But seriously, I once had a Collector's Edition of a game. The game was shit, but I got it for free in a contest, so I figured I would just keep it stashed for a couple of years to see if the value would stay at least constant or even go up. In the end I was glad I could get rid of that shit for even 10$. I should have sold it when the game was still new, I could have gotten three or four times the amount, which would still have been a loss if I had actually paid money for it.


If that happens I guess we'll all have eggs on our faces and the whales will turn their ships into real-life money and become billionaires.

A point defence fleet escort jpeg worth 600$ with a primary armament of player-manned turrets.


A concept frigate jpeg worth 1000$ that has a hangar for carrying 2-3 smaller jpegs.


A 400$ dedicated space salvaging jpeg with no salvaging game mechanics.


A concept destroyer jpeg worth 3000$.


A 275$ torpedo bomber with a retarded internal layout, specs that have long since been outclassed by later jpegs and zero attention from developers and/or Shitizens.


A long-ranged heavy fighter jpeg worth 220$-280$ depending on the version purchased.

Comes in fighter, EW, dropship and fighter-bomber versions all of which are either shit from year-long nerfs and flight model experimentation or obsoleted at launch due to Chris' wisdom (the Hoplite dropship variant in particular).


A 300$ stealth bomber jpeg. Nobody cares.


The result of a CIG-organized jpeg design fan contest, this 250$ concept jpeg is unlikely to ever reach a playable state.


A repair/refuel concept jpeg worth 200$ with no gameplay mechanics to speak of.


Generic light fighter jpeg worth 90$. Dev testbed and one of the oldest and most prominent in-game jpegs, it sees frequent use among the playerbase despite its somewhat lackluster armament.


Mainstay fighter jpeg worth 170$. The Sabre Raven variant of this jpeg was sold as a tie-in with an Intel SSD.


A 60$-85$ bounty hunting/police jpeg with a small storage space/prison. Part of the first wave of flyable jpegs, it has been reworked more times than a Thai prostitute in downtown Bangkok and comes in various variants all of which are shit.


$75 dollar light fighter jpeg with shit armament and no armor.


$100 dedicated bounty hunting jpeg with a pod for storing a single captured bad goy, ostensibly for RP purposes.


Mainstay fighter jpeg worth 110$-180$ dollars.

Part of the first wave of flyable jpegs, it comes in normal, two-seat, stealth and AWACs versions of which the $180 dollar Super Hornet two-seater is the only one viable for PVP.


Anti-capital fighter jpeg worth 195$.


$165 dollar light torpedo bomber no one gives a shit about.


A small, heavily armored exploration/picket jpeg worth 220$.


Super exclusive concept fighter jpeg restricted to AI usage due to its OP stats with the only way for players to obtain one being derelicts and/or space theft.


$375 dollar multi-role dropship that currently rapes ever other jpeg in its price range but doesn't have cargo racks in its hueg belly because Chris said it wouldn't be immersive for a military dropship to carry things beyond vehicles and men.


A dedicated $350 repair concept jpeg unlikely to leave the 2D realm.


Dedicated exploration concept jpeg and/or redditor masturbation aid worth $400, carries a snub ship for some reason.


Dedicated dude weed lmao space farming jpeg worth $350 doomed to an eternal existence in jpeg format.


56% lmao starter jpeg with a retarded design and shit performance across all its $65-$90 variants.

>Hull series

$60-$650 Concept trade jpegs which mount their cargo on large external spindles. Its biggest version is so hueg it can't land on planets.


Multipurpose refueling jpeg worth $300-$340. One of the first flyable large multi-crew ships, it is well known for its confusing interior layout, tiny cargo bay door, lack of refueling gameplay and bugged ladder mechanics.

>Freelancer series

Multipurpose 56% lmao jpegs worth $110-$175. Has seen six million design works none of which have improved its crappy cockpit and generally retarded aesthetic.


The game's only playable mining jpeg at $155. It actually has mining mechanics implemented!


A $145 dollar dedicated formula one racing jpeg.

>890 Jump

An $890 luxury yacht concept jpeg aimed at the rich and beautiful, with an affluent design+various amenities free of any homophobic tendencies. Carries an M85X.


Mid-size multipurpose luxury jpeg worth $435. Has a martini bar and can't land on water, as Anon discovered during his free fly pilgrimage last year.

>300 series

The Scam Yiddizen equivalent of the BMW 3 series, these $55-$75 jpegs had long since been neglected in favor of other jpegs until a recent rework brought them more in line with the gay community.


This $50 roundabout included with the 890 Jump was made available for seperate purchase a while back to a surprising success. It pioneered Origin's homosexual-oriented aesthetic and carries a jump drive of its own, which is unusual among bypurchased jpegs.

See above, but this time in pure jpeg form for $220.

>P-52 Merlin

A small snub fighter jpeg with no jump drive. Comes as standard equipment on every Constellation and can even be purchased and flown separately for $20, despite the fact that the mechanics for docking/undocking from its mothership have yet to be implemented and likely never will. The Constellation Phoenix comes with a souped up version called the P-72 Archimedes, which is yet to be made flyable.


Pirate explorer concept jpeg worth $195.


A $295 pirate trader jpeg. It was once said to possess modular, detachable hull sections with various options for outfitting beyond the simple trade role, but little has been heard of these game mechanics for quite some time now.


$110 pirate fighter jpeg with no ejection seat.


$100-$150 light-medium multipurpose jpeg. Comes in Black, Blue and Red, of which only the Black version aimed at bad goy pirates can currently be flown with Blue being some military patrol refit concept and Red a dedicated space ambulance concept with custom gameplay mechanics tied to it.


A literal copypasta of a ship from EVE online, now sold at the Scam Shitizen store for only $140.


A $1650 jpeg carrier concept. send help


A $40 space bike jpeg that looks like a heap of trash.


A dedicated data running jpeg for $85. Its gameplay was implemented at some point and it goes fast.


A $750 torpedo destroyer corvette jpeg concept that bullied the Retaliator to obsolescence.

>Constellation series

The game's iconic mainstay medium multipurpose jpeg. One of the first flyable large jpegs, it pioneered many a bugged game mechanic and played host to various fantasies of Christ Robbers throughout the game's development, leading to various strange design choices, bad cockpit views, multiple versions and a snub fighter that can't detach from its mothership and never will.

It comes in 4 versions starting at the $150 Taurus freighter, the $225 Andromeda multipurpose, the $310 Aquila explorer with a free Ursa rover and finally the $350 Phoenix richfag version feat. a working Piano.


A $250 medivac concept jpeg with a $275 version that has more armor and missiles.


The default starter jpeg for every new player post-release. As Scam Yiddizen is in eternal development the Aurora is currently available in a variety of $20-$45 versions all of which can't do shit other than suck dick.

Alien space jew concept jpeg for only $350. Will never see the light of day.


Alien space jew fighter concept for $185.


$450 military cargo jpeg concept.


$225 blockade runner jpeg concept.

>Genesis Starliner

A $400 space passenger jpeg concept.


Dedicated $850 basebuilding/terraforming concept jpeg that allows the player to construct various facilities on ingame land he previously claimed with a $50 geotack beacon.

>Mustang series

The slightly more expensive poorfag starter jpeg alternative to the Aurora. Considerably less shit but still shit, has several cuntpasted versions ranging from $30-$65 and a rare AMD exclusive variant.


$425 ayy dropship concept jpeg.


Bad goy aylamo $275 light fighter jpeg built without license by man.

Serious question: what the fuck is Star Citizen even supposed to be? When it was first announced my thoughts were "neat, a new Wing Commander style game" and I let it drop off my radar because I don't buy games that aren't even out yet.

Then I checked back on it and the company was selling 50,000$+ models and even insurance for your space ships and you have to shower and take shits in-game. Is this supposed to become some autistic life simulator where you have to do every real-life chore in the game as well? And what is the deal with insurance, don't tell me they plan to have permadeath on a virtual good that costs more than a real-life car. How the fuck we go from "shoot at enemy ships" to "mundane life simulator, but in space"? I used to think that those German forklift simulators were weird, but at least you don't have to sell your kidneys for those.

i backed it at the lowest possible level that came with a ship (i think fifty bucks) back when it seemed like a good idea and before the unbelievably huge feature creep began. i check in on it every few months/year or so to see what's different and to see if it's a game yet. it isn't

>what the fuck is it even supposed to be?

nobody really knows. every autistic whale who has pumped triple digits or more into this thinks that their own retarded personal idea of gameplay is going to be in. i ended up getting too exasperated with the cult-like mentality in the forums to keep reading, but there are people who genuinely think they are going to make money selling player characters that they have taken hostage for ransom, or people who think that they're going to be able to actively terraform planets. i think a conservative idea of what it's actually going to be is "a slightly bigger elite dangerous that costs way more to play"


the insurance system that is in place right now entitles you to a free replacement of a stock version of your ship if it gets destroyed. insurance is going to be available for in-game credits. i think we're coming up on something big insurance-wise; they've painted themselves into a corner on the idea of insurance and they need to shit or get off the pot. is your multi-hundred or -thousand dollar ship going to disappear when {420}xXxBoNgLaSeRxXx rams you or not? I can already see the lawsuits and i have a hunch that the system they'll end up settling on will be "if you bought a ship for real money it permanently has insurance, if you bought it for in-game credits you will have to buy insurance"

>shower and take shits

not going to be a thing, and if it is i think it'll be one of those things you can do if you're bored or are in FTL travel or something. they've stated a couple of times that this isn't going to be a survival game, you won't need to eat or sleep or anything like that

i don't want you to misunderstand me here, i think they have already failed at delivering the product they initially proposed and i think it's going to end up being a pretty bad game even when it's all said and done, but hate it for the right reasons
