This is as of today, not far from a big milestone:

Invictus bought in $20 million and we've been seeing roughly 5 to 8 million a month in recent times so it's fairly certain we'll see 500 mil soon. That's not to say all this funding came in at once, this is over the duration of the whole project, but what a milestone to see!

I forget, is a billion 1000 million or 1 million million? Isn't a one thousand million a Milliard?

Its complex. The short scale is now the official way in most English speaking countries. In those countries the long scale is defunct. So:
A billion is 1000 million, 10⁹
a trillion is 100,000 million, 10¹²
But this doesn't necessarily apply even to all English speaking countries, let alone the rest of the world.

In my world, we say 1.00 X 10⁹ and don't decorate it with ambiguities. We just say what it is, like pounds, dollars, cats, amoebas, etc.

Huh, interesting, we use the word Milliárd for 1000 million. But we also use the word billió as to exaggerat which I guess comes from billion, but it's not quantified.
When it comes to English, I learned a 1000 million as one billion.

Anyways, " over 500mill and no game" and "most expensive game that doesn't even exist" articles, here we come!

Half a billion on the short scale, gotcha.

When the articles come saying 'Half a billion and still no game" I am going to be ignorant and be like "this article is misleading its not 500,000 million its only 500 million"
