From Hello Games, the studio that made Joe Danger.

I know they've staffed up (I think from 4 to 8 ) since they made Joe Danger, although that might be out of date info now, and this is supposedly just made by a team of 4.

No platforms announced other than "Next gen" so far, at a guess it's probably coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC.

First reason has been added to the 'should I buy a PS4 yet' list.

That looks like what Elite IV should be. Oh my.

Is Elite Dangerous not living up to your expectations, Lave? I'm proper excited for it.

If I'm honest, I've not really been paying attention. I've kickstarted it. At some point in the distant future they will give me a copy (which I will have to work out a way to play), but anything I read about it is just spoilers.

I want to go in as blind as possible.

Only a team of four, fingers crossed they get it made. Looks amazing & very elite like.

This looks damn impressive, especially given the size of the team, but it does nothing for me. What do you DO? Shoot lasers at baddies, other ships, rocks? Does it have a story or is it a pretty tech demo? Mind you, I could never get into Elite and the like; never enough story or atmosphere to keep me entertained.

Apparently the goal is to get to the centre of the universe. But it won't be that simple.

As a child, what did you make of sandpits or Lego?

As a child, and into games, I liked The Last Ninja on the C64. I loved the palace gardens most of all. The music, the solitude, the twee waterfalls, the story of revenge for the fallen clan and kicking someone's face in with nunchucks. I also enjoyed trips to the seaside and staying in caravans with the family. I also loved slotting chunky ten pences into Final Fight. I also liked to sketch pictures. I also enjoyed ... [etc etc, until everyone is bored].

This looks amazing but also far too far off for me to bother getting excited about.

I must confess I don't see what all the excitement's about. I watched the video and there were spaceships in it (which, granted, is a good thing).

It's the scope and scale of it. The dots in the sky are stars that you can fly to, not some bitmap up there, you can get in a ship and fly right out into space, out of that solar system and to others. Basically all the same things that make me wonder how long it might be before we get to play it or if it will ever get finished at all. I love the art direction, though. Chris Foss, proper scifi.

What was that other space game that there was an amazing trailer for a year or so ago. The one that one bloke reckoned he could make in his spare time? Did it ever get finished?

Alpha testers of E:D are reporting the same is true with that - stars you can see in space can all be flown to given enough time. Impressive.

New trailer from E3 yesterday. Looks incredible.



Now confirmed for PS4 (first, I think) and PC.
