citizen con was going to charge $20 for a digital ticket for access to live streams of the event, fans rebelled and now the plan has been scrapped.

star citizen has been in development since 2011, has not been released and has pulled in over $193,000,000

the whole game should be scrapped and Roberts thrown in jail.

Glad they made this decision. Star Citizen is very much a game founded by its fans and supporters as it is one made by the game industry, it would be wrong to charge money for a ticket to view (not attend) the event.

Nah give him a few more years, they need to implement ray tracing now! Also, add in another 20 ships we don't need.

In all seriousness, I'm OK with him taking his time. It would be nice to get Squadron 42, though, while they finish up Star Citizen.

He is getting greedy and seeing what he can get for nothing. He is turning into SKY what does he think it is box office to watch a fight.

It's funny, though, Star Citizen with all it's bugs and alpha-status still pulls me away from Horizon: Zero Dawn and God Of War.

Yeah, I'm way too hipster to like good games.

I still cant play it with out really bad stutter and now sound keeps crashing out. I can play arena command etc perfect but star citizen live universe is horrible. People say if you can play others and not star citizen then its not your PC so I hope they fix the connection issues. A lot of people are having same problem. 3.0 was meant to a OMG update and now its on 3.2.2 update and is worst yet. 5 years for this garbage and dont give me that crap about it been a big game either.

This game is to crowd funding what Day Z is to earl access, it will never be in a finished state.

The way ray tracing is going to be implemented in games like Metro: Exodus and other up-coming games supporting RTX "ray tracing" isn't anything like what is used in animated films. Doesn't mean what they are using isn't ray tracing though.

@PernicioEnigma: thats the problem now. with game dev/card makers their making their own terms for stuff now. that are not the original meaning terms. i mean i pointed on a asset size issue and boy this dev got mad at me for calling their bs out.(twitter)

Can't tell which is bigger flop - No Man's Sky or Star Citizen

Best similar game to get is Elite Dangerous which was updated with land on stars and now features co-op on the same ship.

Elite Grinderous.

Q4 update is going to kill the game anyway.

Star Citizen proves that it's easy to strike it rich in the gaming industry. You just need to have no scruples.
