    Thought it had to be done. And tbh I wanted a bit of the glory of creating the thread. Don't plan on getting one but anyone who does, post away ... ... ... (when you have it)

    Er never I guess - I always wonder why we dont get some kind of relatively simplistic, but online (multi console) global space trading gaming in the Elite Style.

    Who knows may be will get the original on PS/Wii/Xbox downloads one day.

    I would love an Elite style game for the 360. Was a top game on my Amiga back in the day. Remember loading it up and the song playing as all the space ships were spinning was The Blue Danube. Great days :smashin:

    Before the Amiga version, I had it on my Acorn Electron! It took about 15 minutes to load it up....

    :rotfl: Reminds me of my Sinclair ZX Spectrum 128K+. I had Street Fighter 2 on that. It took one hour to load. Then around 5 minutes between each fight. That has to be the worst converstion of any game...ever.

    Elite.

    C64.

    Brilliant.

    Greatest game ever. I was 15. I never left my bedroom for months!

    Would love a next/current gen version of it. Come on. somebody PLEASE buy the rights or please Mr Braben & Mr Bell - put aside your differences and bring Elite to a console. You'll be multi-millionaires!

    My "Elite":

    [​IMG]

    For those that dont get it, Elite = 1337 in leetspeek, which is interpreted as "Leek" by anti-leetspeekers.

    You'll need to keep hold of that! We moved house recently and found the original maps and manuals for Grand Theft Auto that the wife designed in 95-96ish when she worked for DMA in Dundee - may be worth at least 50p on Ebay! Not sure whether she or Dave Jones(then DMA Director) or Rockstar have the intellectual rights. I might frame them and stick them on the wall!
