I am a massive fan of the elite franchise and have been having fun on the premium beta build for a while now. If you have never experienced elite I highly recommend you get acquainted; it's the big granddaddy of 4X space games. Anyhow my advice to anyone who has asked about the game has been unless you really want to support the latest game you should hang back until now.
Starting some time tonight the standard beta will start. To get involved is £50 (not sure what the other prices are) and I do think it is worth that. For those who can wait the game is supposed to release sometime this year for around £35 but I do think it is worth the current price.
