I have no idea how many, and neither do you or anyone else. You're guessing at how successful the program will be. You've not the slightest clue whether it will work or not.

Probably as many as will actually just buy 5 more copies of the game them selves and pay for a month of service for each just for the Galaxy X. I bet you no more than 20 - 30 people will actually pull it off, if that.
What actual real data are you basing this on?

People who are able/want to buy 5 more copies of the game and 5 more monthly subs for a month just to get the ship is no difference in income for them than 1 person inviting 5 friends to do the same. It's still ~$175 to $200 of income vs. $12. That's simple math.

As for "only" 20 to 30 people buying those 5 copies etc., you're guessing.
