Why are people giving away money for a game? Mighty No. 9

#1skermacPosted 10/2/2013 7:28:59 AM
They are taking all these suckers donations to make a game. If the game sells big and they make millions that means they get rich off the people that gave them money. Its not an investment as the people get none of their money back.

These proves the old saying is true, there is a sucker born every minute.

ps- If you like GTAV or COD Ghosts why not send $100 donation to the devs as a tip.

Every person that donates "x" amount of money gets a copy of the game at no extra charge. You've made no valid point.

ok, I change my tune a little, you do get a few things, for your investment so they aren't just taking the money and running. I just now looked it up. Hard to believe 48 people gave them $500, that's more than the PS4! But 16 people donated $1,000, 14 people gave $2500

And the top of the line? 4 people donated $10,000 with 5 slots left as of the article date.


What do you get for $10,000 besides a copy of the game?


Dinner and drinks with the man, the myth, the legend, Keiji Inafune, here in Tokyo. (Travel and lodging expenses are not included.) Includes all previous non-limited rewards. (Check the reward section of the page for more details.)

Estimated delivery: Feb 2014

Here's a list of what each donor gets from $5 to $10,000

TC,

You are mad because people are spending their money the way they want to?
Is that right?

I'm kinda with you here TC. I look at this as worst than dlc sold before a game. You got people donating all this money to a game they have no idea if it's gonna be good, but if the dev tell them what they wanna hear they pour in money.

Not mad at all, just shaking my head at people doing this. If you truly love the game I could see it. But no one knows anything about the game yet other than its a side scroller.

I didn't give any money for this game's kickstarter effort, but I'm planning on getting it whenever it comes out. I was tempted to give to it though, especially if it was close on not making, but it did, so I felt no need.
