Forthcoming projects from Frontier to include Elite IV on PS3 and 360, this is the first proper confirmation.
*claps hands like a seal* oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy ! I have been waiting for this day since i was a little fella.... read my bio.
Hey Commodore, I read your bio, and even though I was too young to really appreciate good games, my favs were Law of the West, Beach Head 2 and Ghostbusters. Man, that thing really kicked my Atari's ass. I've never heard of Elite, but if it's space trading, I'm there.
I played Elite to death on my ole Commodore64. I remember when my ship was overrun with trumbles (tribble clones) until finally one of the damn things jumped on the screen in the middle of battle. I remember thinking..."What the hell's a tribble?" Good times.
Oh, boy. I spend hours, days, weeks, months playing Elite. Made my mum really upset at the time! Boy good old days (that must have been 25 years ago! Time flies!). If that is the same, no over gimmicky but just state of the art visuals, I fear about my coming nights. Can just repeat: Epic!
if you guys liked Elite, you may want to check out 'X3 reunion' and 'x3 Terran Conflict' Much in the same vein, but oh-so-pretty! That said, i can't wait for Elite IV. may have to upgrade my computer for it.
what is this title?i never heard of it.
Epic series of space trading sims. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Wasn't exactly my thing when I was younger, but if anything, the scope is going to be amazing.
i think im too young to remember this game.lol.21 now.
22, my Dad had them on Amiga, I 'attempted' to 'play' them. Pretty big thing for the industry with this series coming back especially on consoles, I believe this is the first time Elite has in fact been on consoles.
Dude, that actually sounds pretty frikin sweet! I hope they do a good job updating it for this gen.
21... yeah, I played that 25 years ago :) ha ha.
Finally. I've been waiting for this.
Elite is still my favorite game of all time. I am glad that word is finally leaking about the sequel.
I may have to forego the rest of this year and just sit at home now.
If they bought this out on the PSP, I'd buy a PSP for this games. However, I will definately be buying this for my 360..
Great news, lets hope Braben and co don't mess it up by making it stupidly complicated and fussy like Frontier and First encounters - Elite worked so well because it was simple and yet beautifully detailed with great depth By the way, shame on some of you for not knowing your gaming history
More like Elite Forever...
my god........you wait a life time, and now it happens, what a game elite was, and now the HD version, epic. ive still got the classic on my coin op( see avatar)
I believe Cajun Chicken said it perfectly Epic
I was kinda hoping for a rollercoaster tycoon 4 from these guys but can't complain with another elite game on the way.
Guess what Play.Com have added to their list folks... looking less like Vapourware!!!!! Come on Braben, finish Outsider quickly... rush it if you have to. You have got to make Elite 4!!! It will own all other games! http://www.play.com/Games/P...
