The Stream Team: Scoping out Elite Dangerous on the PlayStation 4

It’s time to get dangerous. Elite Dangerous.

Er, with me. On YouTube. As a newbie. On a PlayStation 4. You know, this is already sounding pretty dodgy, guys. Expect a lot of self-destructs and technical difficulties as I jump into the cockpit, controller in hand, and try to get into a game I’ve mostly read about from the safety of the internet. We’ll be streaming this time on YouTube to suit PS4 play, so that’ll be fun to try!

What: Elite Dangerous
Who: Andrew Ross
When: 4:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, July 12th, 2017

having a good time with elite . first go at it , have the pc to run it well but never really touched it till ps4 release . so far no issues , little lag once and awhile , lands / controls just fine with ps4 controller at default . I haven’t gone in and messed with anything in settings . overall pretty impressed graphically , play wise I’m not putting in time like I would eve per say I get on in open run a few missions then I’m off . possibly repetitious from different peoples perspectives but its something I’m coming back to daily as I get better at flight and being smoother . I could imagine a real nice setup on pc though with voice commands , vr and real flight controls dual sticks g25 pedals etc

Andrew, your newbie experience was a lot luckier than many. The official forums and reddit are awash with reports of server disconnection errors crashing out of the game when ever landing, launching etc. Frontier’s patch last weekend didn’t fix it and at the moment Frontier are giving no date for when it will be fixed. That’s on top of the huge pile of gameplay bugs Frontier’s PS4 port brought over from PC.

I told me mate not to bother picking this up because it’s crap. He doesn’t like no man’s sky which has a lot more content than elite and if you don’t like NMS your not going like elite

Really? Besides ‘space’ I fail to see almost any comparison, controls, multi-player, planets, color pallets, graphics, everything is different. I agree NMS blew however I’m finding the relaxed pace of ED nice once I got past the initial learning curve of flying and there is still a lot of learning to do, which I enjoy. And maybe I got lucky but the community I fell in with is freakin’ awesome.

Is it perfect or even close? God no. And I agree I would only recommend it to certain friends I think would enjoy it, it can be frustrating and shallow if you are looking for ‘the one’ space game.

Wait an ED stream? Shame I missed it… I really need to reconnect the HOTAS and check that game out again.

Ah damn I missed a surprise stream that will teach me to have a life hehe.

That was a pretty standard start with Elite: Dangerous that most people experience and to be fair you actually did better than me as I blew myself up a couple of times before I successfully stuck a landing.

Hope you stick with it so you find your space legs. You will soon be crashing and blowing yourself up with grace and panache like the rest of us :-)

Do we have a massively group for this thing or something
