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

Because they can't keep creating new shares like that. Did you read my article? Because I explained it there.

Quote
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 ?

Why is that relevant?
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.

No matter the angle you look at CIG I cannot understand anyone wanting to give them a single penny. But looking back at theranos people continued fund them to the tune of 70billion with no working prototype.

Clearly you don't understand game development.

So with publish financials and actual investor oversight, is there now any chance that anything resembling a "finished product" will be released? Bias aside, for the project itself, is this actually a good thing?

The only way to deliver any sort of viable product is to remove Chris Roberts from any management oversight and put someone else in charge. They'd actually have to kick him out  for that to happen though.

Don't be silly. Of course not. You missed the part where croberts was making it clear in his article that was still in control, the majority investor etc?

"Malicious gossip has it that Roberts deliberately lied for marketing reasons. But would more than 360 employees at that time have carried plain lies with them, without any information having reached the public?"

This lot are shills... 

When it suits their purpose they take CRoberts word as gospel and then the next they excuse his lies.

Yes right !
