    Great news.

    Been avoiding the beta as I have too much to do at the moment and it looks awesome enough for me to lose many months to.

    Hope when I finally get it it grasps me as much as the original did way back when.

    Been playing the beta for a while now, sounds silly to say, but it very much is Elite, the game we all remember with nice fancy graphics and other such updates.
    really loving it.

    Elite First Encounter I was playing it almost non stop for 2 years....
    Frontier Elite 2, on the Amiga countless hours.

    I never doubt this one will be any less fun and entertainment indeed :D

    Part of me has been tempted but then I don't want to ruin my childhood memories. My corrupted adult brain will ruin it for me.

    :)

    Weird, my dad bought us a BBC B at home before we even had a VHS player or a shower. Priorities of parents in the 80's was different to those of today :)
