Who the hell would pay $350 for a BASIC ship in Star Citizen?

Why do people pay thousands for cosmetics in CSGO and dota when they bring nothing to the table except for pretty looks?

Well, in dota it adds a lot to the community, and can be as expensive or cheap as you want to be (i.e. people like hearing compliments about their items, thus are more likely to cooperate)

But as far as Star Citizen goes, those prices are insulting

To exist is to change, to change is to mature, to mature is to go on creating oneself endlessly.

Someone with $350 in disposable income to toss at a hobby. Has no effect on me whatsoever so more power to them.

Yeah, I don't really see the issue here.

If they have the discretionary income and they want to spend it on whatever, who are you to question or judge how they spend it? It's not coming out of your pocket or bank account.

Just like the old...

...Why would you buy a Porsche if a Honda works just as well?
Because you have money, that's why.

Well, had money at least. =p
But still, like much of life "Because it's there and I can" is a perfectly valid reason.
