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.


Except in the case of the Porsche vs. Honda you are getting something real and tangible, whereas this is $350 for a digital item. Though I'd agree that if somebody wants to spend their money on something like this, more power to them, I personally would rather buy a higher end video card vs. a ship in a game, but that's me.

Except a Porsche is inherently better than a Honda while a virtual ship is a virtual ship.

Car analogies are like the engine coolant of this message board; sure, we you go without 'em for a little while, but past that you better put some in before all hell breaks loose!
Wait... what?

I'd prefer a Honda over a Porsche tbh.
You eat the world, or the world eats you. Either way, it's okay.

Also, it's not a "basic ship" that's $350. The basic ship is like $25. The full game, multiplayer and singleplayer, along WITH that basic ship is $40. Cheaper than most AAA PC games
