Chris Roberts' Star Citizen blasted through the $50 million crowdfunding mark over the weekend, thanks to the launch of a series of expensive ships. Roberts Space Industries launched what it called "The 2945 RSI Constellation Lineup" last Friday -- a selection of four spaceships that range from $150 in price, to a whopping $350. The $350 ship in particular, named the Constellation Phoenix, is limited to 5,000 sales. 567 have been sold at time of press, meaning RSI has made $198,450 in revenue from this single ship. The sales of these expensive ships have caused funding for the game to rocket. Before the announcement, the game was making around $40,000 a day in crowdfunding. After the announcement, the game made over $1.3 million in a single weekend. More than half a million people have donated to the Star Citizen crowdfunding initiative to date, and over $51 million has been raised.
