I have this on my laptop and haven't played it in probably over a year, but having it on console appeals to me MASSIVELY.

GRcade PS4 Space Division?

Cool! Always been intrigued by Elite, although it sounds like it could be either amazing or really boring. I will try the PS4 version.

Definitely interested and the continued murmurings of PSVR down the line mean I'll probably wait for a sale.

One of the few games that would be massivley beneficial with PSVR I reckon.

Surely PSVR is out of the question without a vast reduction in visuals

I've had this game on PC for what seems like years now. I have never made any progress in it at all. I bought into the Horizons update, too. I just can't figure out how to make any money. Whatever I try is doomed to failure and I always just give up after a while and forget about the game for another six months. By the time I come back it's had another large update and everything I knew about it has been forgotten.

Yes, it's always looked good to me, but just how do I actually make some cash and get started in the damn thing?

Not interested in combat, just a nice quiet life as a trader moving around the galaxy doing my own thing.

Well with this and eurotruck I just accept a life doomed to debt and breaking even most of the time so it's not all that different to real life really. ;)

Elite's not really 'a looker', a simple lower resolution would look ok I reckon.

As for making cash go to space stations/planet stations and take on the missions... most of them are cargo based, sure they may have a warning that you'll be randomly attacked for your loot but at the start that rarely happens.
