Someone paid about $1300 for an early copy of No Man’s Sky on eBay. He live streamed the game for his first several hours of playing, and has actually already made it to the center of the universe. However, he stopped live streaming it and became much more careful about spoiling the game after Sean Murray, the creator of the game, tweeted “We’ve spent years filling No Man’s Sky with surprises. You’ve spent years waiting. Please don’t spoil it for yourself :(”
He felt guilty about leaking info and decided to compromise by writing about it on Reddit instead, and he no longer records himself playing. He also refrained from talking about many aspects of the game, including what is at the center of the universe. If you want to read about the game yourself, head over to Reddit. Needless to say, it contains spoilers for the game.
No Man’s Sky releases on August 9 for the PlayStation 4 in North America, August 10 for PlayStation 4 in Europe, and August 12 for PC everywhere.
