Star Citizen is now selling virtual land for up to $100

The money raised will allow RSI to " include deeper features" in Star Citizen.



Read more on Star Citizen's Land Claim Licenses.

Barely able to deliver on promises and put out content and they just keep finding ways to monetize everything.

Meh people just throwing noise around as its the popular thing to do right now, can all be bought ingame, and this thing has been on the drawing board for ages.

^ slight bias as i dropped a lot of cash on it, but i do feel people overreating again, in perfect timing with all the controversies out there.

I'm so glad that I never bought into the hype surrounding this "game".

There's no land for sale, if you guys acually researched before posting you would know that. What's for sale (whether you agree with it or not) is little more than an alarm system.

I got SC free with the purchase of a 290X quite some time ago, No way in hell am I spending money on it though and judging by it's current state it won't be out for at least another 3 years, And that's being very conservative.

I'll stick to Elite Dangerous, Sure it doesn't have space legs yet or in atmosphere flying but these are all things that are on the books and in the meantime we have a VERY playable game.

Ironically you should take your own advice. Because they are indeed selling plots of land. Should do more research eh?

Directly from FAQ.
What is a claim license?
A claim license entitles the holder to claim ownership of a small section of land on a planet, moon, or asteroid controlled by the UEE.

In addition they are quite literally selling land in a package of 4kmx4km and 8kmx8km. It's quite clear what they are doing here. So before you come in as a new member and have passive aggressive sarcasm, read the source.

Didn't that old MMO Second Life do something similar a number of years ago ?

They are selling a lot of virtual ships too ATM but you don't hear any complaints about that, and there is also so many misquotes stating this is a game it is not a game it is an alpha ATM that you can play and give feedback during its development cycle.
Also it is going to take awhile and has taken awhile due to the fact they are a new company and it has taken a few year to get site and staff together, actual game play development has only been for the last couple of years, one of CIG's issues if you can call it that is that they always miss their schedules as they find it takes longer to implement what they are trying to achieve.
So please lets try and keep things in its proper perspective.
