If you ever wondered why this is an absolute train-wreck, this should help you understand it. As one guy said, "It reads like parody, but it's not"

https://www.newsweek.com/star-citizen-ups-downs-funding-200-million-promise-kickstarter-335-1243114
Looking at the author's credentials there is absolutely nothing which qualifies him for reporting on video games. His whole professional life as a "writer" seems to center about producing monetized clickbait bullshit on social media.

This is going to backfire on Newsweek.

It backfired already. I learned earlier this morning that they disabled the comments in the thread. I guess when you print a litany of lies which could very well have come from a press release, then you solicit comments, you're likely to get called out.

Star Citizen isn't a game. It's a TV show about a bunch of characters making a game. It's basically "This is Spinal Tap" - except people think the band is real.

fun starts @ 38:35


Really good listen..

What I didn't get on this was why CIG can only do this once as he says circa 48 mins in.

If CRobers and the other shareholders gave away shares to raise cash to pay off the Coutts loan then Coutts  longer have CIG assets as collateral and CIG simply have  more shareholders.

What stops Chris doing it all again to raise some cash in the future ?

That was a good listen.  When are these "payday loans" ever going to end?  Taking out one loan to pay another?  That's the equivalent of taking a cash advance from your personal credit card to make the payment on another card.
