Just consider stuff like that an extension of the player universe. Of course there would be services like that in a universe like elite. Imagine if we didn't have the Internet. :lol:

Xbox One owners get Elite: Dangerous now for the cheap price of £24.99

David Braben wrote:Hello Commander,

This morning in Los Angeles (the evening for our team and players back in the UK) we were thrilled to announce Elite: Dangerous will be available for Xbox One’s new Game Preview Program TODAY. Elite: Dangerous will be the first ‘early access’ game on console, and it’s a hugely exciting moment for the whole team at Frontier.

We hope you’ll join us in the Xbox One Game Preview. Elite: Dangerous will be available for Xbox One later today for the special early access price of £24.99 ($30.99 €30.99).

On Xbox One we’re introducing all-new gamepad controls, Achievements, support for Xbox Live Parties and Friends Lists, and a new controller UI layer with context menus for important actions. And this morning we’re also announcing Close Quarter Combat – instant-action PVP combat in the Elite: Dangerous galaxy for PC, Mac and Xbox One. You can play CQC first on Xbox One in the Game Preview Program next month. CQC is a new way to play Elite: Dangerous, and we’ll be testing it first with the Xbox Live community.

We’re proud to be leading the way on the Game Preview Program, and we wouldn’t be able to do it without our amazing community. Elite: Dangerous Game Preview is a true beta test on a console, and the first ever “early access” console game. Of course we’ll be optimizing the game further over the course of the Game Preview Program.

Elite: Dangerous means a lot to us. The more platforms we add the more we’re able to improve the game overall. We’ve put a lot of work into optimization already to bring Elite: Dangerous first to Mac, and now to Xbox One, with all that effort benefitting the PC version too.

We have lots more coming for our players on PC and Mac soon. For now I’m pleased to announce that if you already own Elite: Dangerous for PC and Mac, you can buy it for Xbox One and automatically receive a £5 coupon for FrontierStore.net. I'm also happy to say CQC and the new controller functions will be a free addition to PC and Mac later in 2015.

I think it is £10 as the expansion is out in a month or two, and I think you can just buy the expansion and it includes the first one as standard

But the expansion is around £39.99 I think.
If you just want to try it out and cruise around, a tenner is definitely a good place to jump in.

Really needs at least a gamepad if not a joystick though. Keyboard and Mouse controls are awful by comparison.

Should be fine. I use an Xbox 360 pad and don't have any issues.

You'll still need to map a few controls to the keyboard mind, but it's a lot better than keyboard/mouse combo.

Yeah I considered that for about 2 seconds.

My gf has told me I can't buy any more games than daytona for 2 quid, so I'll have to join the elite universe another day.

I'm confused a bit by the game, can it be played single player only or do you need a persistent internet connection for it?

Persistent Internet connection.
The only stuff you can do offline is the training exercises.

I don't think that's true. I'm sure I play the game offline, just means you cant get messed up by other players.

Does anyone know what the expansion entails?

It's still 'online' but it disables other players, the online world is persistent.

Landing on planet looks AMAZING:

Its the kind of game that's incredible for 2 weeks, then you realize theres pretty much nothing to do in it and abandon it. Perfectly summed up as a mile wide, but an inch deep. The planetary landing looks fun, but unless it has actual stuff to do, its gonna be another pretty but shallow distraction
