Except these people aren't "buying" anything. They're 'pledging' money towards the development of the game and are receiving virtual goods in return. As long as the game remains 'in development,' RSI never has to deliver on any of these products. Even if, ten years down the road, the entirety of RSI ends up being Chris Roberts fiddling with code for an hour a day before hanging out on a beach somewhere.
