I was reading about it and Elite this week. Such a great game. If only I was able to land my ship back on that MSX childhood...

Been playing it with a DK2 since Thursday, unbelievably good and the No.1 VR title at the moment.

This game and star citizen look very similar to me. Which one is expected to be better?
(I know the original "elites" came way before SC)

Tibbers1472d ago (Edited 1472d ago )

Both universes are pretty different and Elite's development time will be way shorter than SC's. The budget is also quite different (around 3m$ compared to 49m$).

In the end, SC will be a lot bigger and more complex but not automatically better.

edit: There's a good chance you'll be able to play Elite for over a year before SC comes out.

Elite: Dangerous is a lot more complex and bigger than Star Citizen.
