THANKS FOR LITERALLY BETA TESTING PCUCKS

>THANKS FOR LITERALLY BETA TESTING

Good luck finding those 3 people who actually bothered with it to respond in anger.
>>
It's like somebody doesn't know what exclusive means
>>
>Console Exclusive
Wow it's nothing. Cool thread OP.
>>
Ah. This makes me happy. I wonder how they'll manage to simplify the controls down to a single gamepad, or if they will employ kinect.

In any case, consoles don't get enough space flight games, so this is good news.

The game already controls quite well with a 360 pad, the interface is laid out in a very menu based way.

Still... I'm not sure that it's the right sort of game for a console audience. It literally tells you nothing. You just start, on a platform in space, in the worst ship in the game (arguably).
>>
>>285606290
To be fair space sims usually have the simplest controls compared to other flight sims

It's cute that Microsoft are trying to get their version of No Mans Sky

Wait what? Nigga, we already have the game
>>
I actually own this game. It's kinda meh. An xbox could certainly run it and pretty well too since it's a pretty simple game. Honestly I feel like it needs to be deeper. There's only one way to make money and the ships are basically a different HUD with some altered stats, you never really get to see them completely.
Still waiting for star citizen though. I doubt it will be everything that was promised and I know it will be released in 2078 but it will be deeper at least.
>>
>>285604270
have fun with your 25 fps 720p shit port
>>
>>285606329
Using that logic, every game ever made is an exclusive for that system, even if it's out for all systems.
>>
>>285606290
>simplify the controls down to a single gamepad

I never played this game but is the implication you normally have to use two gamepads to play this game?
>>
>>285606470
It means it's coming to the Xbone only, not PS4 or wiiu.

This place really is going downhill
>>
Real talk. This game is shit. The community is a bunch of ass blasted teenagers worrying about feelings and believing in the Vision. The devs are incompetent, do not listen to beta testers warning of game breaking bugs, and are funneling all proceeds of ED to their passion project: another rollercoaster tycoon game.

Avoid like the plague.
>>
>>285606659
Elite is technically not done yet according to the devs, I wouldn't hold my breath for anything groundbreaking but hey, I enjoy space trucker for what it is for the most part

>>285604270
Enjoy terribad port and getting your ship rammed by pre-teen xbots

Sounds like you're describing Star Citizen.

good game.

>>285607023
Eh, depends on your expectations. I don't think it's bad if you approach it as Euro Truck Simulator: Space Edition.

Between RSI and FD, instead of a revival for space sims, we're getting a funeral pyre.

Honestly, who the fuck cares. Exclusivity is only harmful to gamers. If you think exclusivity is a good thing you're an idiot. The only reason I can see to keep something on pc only for instance is because it just wouldn't work well on a gamepad, like rts.

Its ok when console users do it.

But it's not ok when PC users same the same fucking thing about console games being ported to PC.

How does that work?
>>
>don't release the game on GOG and Steam like it was initially promised in the kikestarter, and lose shitload of potential customers because of it
>now they have to settle for console market
>>
>>285606846
The implication is that these games are ideally played with an assload of hotkeys on a keyboard, a flightstick/throttle, and maybe a TrackIR/HOTAS.
>>
>>285607486
Watching good titles get hamstrung to appease console peasants is awful.
>>
>>285604270
"Exclusive"

For 1 month until they release it for the PS4 because who doesn't want 20 million potential customers?

The only games that happens to are AAA shit anyway. They're designed to sell maximum units, not to be good games. Nothing will change.

I still have hopes for Limit Theory (though the dev has gone AWOL for the last 1.5 months...)

Yeah, no. Thanks.

Except the PC already has the game, plus you can use OR on the PC version. Not sure why anyone would want to play it on their couch with a gamepad either.
>>
>>285607213

No, star citizen will be a shitty FPS with a bunch of shitty mini-games that hardly anyone will play. They are letting people choose between FPS and flying spaceship, in the long run people are going to prefer the FPS segments.

No thanks, I don't like having to pretend that my spaceship captain is a wheelchair bound quadriplegic with a static view out the front window.

too bad the game is shit

>>285608379
FD promises Elite will be getting a FPS expansion pack. It's supposed to be slated after planetary landings.
>>
>>285608396
Jesus Christ PC gaming is so beyond consoles at this point that it makes me sick to my fucking stomach
>>
Was to be expected, given the gamepad friendly UI. It never felt like it was made to be played with a mouse.
Then again nobody cares about the console release as it won't go anywhere. Game needs updates, they have to release a ton of patches before it's anywhere near interesting.
>>
>>285607486
Huh, just last week /v/ wouldn't shut up about bloodborne being ps4 exclusive was good
>>
>>285608860
Yeah, there's lots of idiotic children here like on any website.
>>
>>285608808
To be honest, the next patch is in beta and sounds like it's fixing a good amount of the less gameplay-oriented elements.

Also, what the hell happened to the general on /vg/?
>>
>>285608172
What is HOTAS and TrackIR?
>>
>>285609086
What is google?
>>
>>285609057
Sieg.

It's died without another one made for days at a time. We've dropped from hundreds of unique ips to a few dozen. Wings might bring some back. I haven't touched ED for a week, myself.
>>
>>285609086
its how you control flying games without being a gimp
>>
>>285608396
Goddamn thats impressive. When they add shit like planet landing and better co-op, I might pick this game up.
>>
I didn't know you could play this game without an Oculus Rift and don't see why you'd want to, as it probably be a fairly mediocre experience without the immersion aspect.
>>
>>285609314
>Sieg.
Gross. Kill yourself.

Also, that sucks. Wings plus the chat updates will definitely bring some back. Even if it's just a few, I'd rather have a few in a general than no general at all. Maybe I'll dig up the OP info later and make a new one.
>>
>>285608396
I'm normally against using buzz word but I actually felt comfy watching that
>>
>>285609057
>Also, what the hell happened to the general on /vg/?
It died about a hundred times before nobody posted it again. There's not enough interest in the game to keep a general going and then there's SC shitposting ruining every thread.

The patch you mentioned also isn't anywhere near enough. They are just adding basic multiplayer components like being able to play with friends properly - that should have been included for an always-online game to begin with. There's so much more missing. Factions need to expand properly - there's 400 billion systems and only a few thousand are occupied by anyone. Those community tasks like "bring 1000 units of cheap shit from far away" are neither exiting, nor rewarding. Faction ranks don't lead anywhere meaningful.
>>
>>285609518
3 monitor setup works well for me. I have DK1 and its uncomfortable as fuck after an hour or two. Also, you can't see your HOTAS with a rift on. It's pretty annoying having to feel for switch position, especially in combat.
I'd much rather use trackir or multidisplay setups.

I agree with you 100%; the game is still unfinished and kind of shitty because of it, but a part of me is just relieved they're finally adding it, you know?

That joke only works for PCfags. Their version is better. If anything you guys are retroactively beta testing it for PCfags.

In any case, enjoy it faggots. I don't care much for exclusivity but I know consolefags love them.

Maybe they'll actually get enough money to finish it properly. I aint buying it until it has decent progression stuff, and i wont feel like im playing an ios grindfest game for the sake of grinding.

I say nothing is lost.
>>
>>285608172
Well there was a flight stick for the 360 so maybe the one will have one before this game is finished?
Also you can probably use the kinect in place of TrackIR
>>
>>285604270
Enjoy the boring gameplay, the shallow galaxy, the endless grind, the weekly updates, the cancerous community, and the completely shitty controls because no one managed to play this on a 360 controller so far, there simply isn't enough buttons on it.

sweet now xboners can enjoy a dull game with zero content
