150$ actually.

They strategised that making only a small amount of people buy it at that price and get everything that will come with it in the future would be better, as it would mean a smaller team would be directly affecting the development of the game, instead of having hundreds of thousands doing it.

It seems silly, but in fact it worked out quite well for them. They are very well received, they are very well on schedule with everything they are releasing and planning on releasing, and everything they SAY they will release, they are.

There have been only a few disappointed people who were looking for something completely different in the game, but the majority love it.

Once the game is ready for normal release the price drops and everybody can join in. There are already many people on this band wagon and honestly, the future of this game looks bright as fuck.

I'm playing the shit out of it.

What he said, all of it. ^^^^^

I think the way they've produced and priced this game is quite smart. Whilst it's been in alpha and beta the higher price has probably meant the "omg everything on the internet should be free and done precisely my way" folks aren't filling up the forums with drivel. Elitist .. yes. But that's the name of the game.

Acknowledging it's a beta, and providing solid, constructive feedback is what will make this game truly great when it does release to market (at 'normal' prices). That said, the game is certainly very playable right now .. very little experienced yet in the way of crashes and bugs.

Hope to see you out there ralfidude. If you see CMDR epoch71 and CMDR cp ... be gentle on us ...
