Elite Dangerous PS4
Anyone got this?
Reply
I see Elite Dangerous is now available for the princely sum of £40 on the PS store. I'm wary of being No Man's Sky-ed again, but this does look just lovely. Has anyone purchased it and have views that might be relevant to readers of this thread?

I remain, sirs and madams, your humble servant.
Old Man Afterthought has. He was dedicating yesterday evening to "learning to land on a pad". I shall report back.

I'd quite like it, but it looks like a time sink, and i have far too many games to get through.
Thank you sir.

Oooh, it's actually only £20 this week. That might change the calculation a bit. And the £20 I save can go towards a VR headset.
Oh hell yes for £20
Although that's without the season pass thingy... Hmm. Is that important?
I love the idea of this but I also love the idea of having enough time to dedicate to it.

Ditto and I have just started Breath of the Wild so I think I'll hold off.

Good choice!

Yeah I think you pretty much want the "Horizons" add on. It adds planetary landings amongst other stuff.
I'm finding the galaxy map next to impossible to navigate, am I missing something? Searching for systems flat out fails to ever find anything, and trying to work out what leads to where is a mess.
So down to £14 in the current sale for the basic game

Do i need that, or the expansions?
I want this, but I really won't have much time to play it. Is it a game you can drop in and out of?

Also, what MaliA said
I did a couple of hours last night and am starting to get the hang of it a bit, I think. I'm getting quite good at running away from bad guys. I do think the interface is extremely clunky.

Bring us 4 water purifiers!
Wait there
Exit mission board
Exit station services
Open galaxy map
Check nearby systems for industrial station
Found one
Exit galaxy map
Enter station services
Enter mission board
Find mission again
Okay I will get your water purifiers

What bobby said.
If ever a game called for a good companion app sitting on an iPad next to you where you can check commodity stocks and prices at remote locations, this is it.

The Horozons expansion (an extra £20) is supposed to be enormous and transformative, based on people talking about the PC version I own but barely played.
I have it too, but have barely played it. It's excellent in VR but barrel rolls make me feel a bit queasy.

Until you get a ship with no windows...

I also found the ui elements to be quite hard to use in VR.

If you were going to go down that route its better to buy this one

Which is the base game / horizons add on / and the 'Commanders pack' for £28

Horizons enables you to land on airless moons and planets, and adds a few other features into the game.

It does transform the game and makes it enormously better and more immersive, but unfortunately the gameplay itself is still mind-numbingly shallow and grindy.
I bought this for £15 or so, and I quite like flying about and moving clothes from one system to another. I haven't yet started to make enemies, but i have a natty red ship which is becoming more efficient. It seems that there is a lot in it, though.
Mind you, I do a lot of this
Didn’t realise this game had a pancake mode
Got me a new ship, so I can move forty four tonnes of clothes at a time now. Fourty four! Imagine!
