25 Years of Elite

Frontier is celebrating the 25 Year Anniversary of Elite, as their seminal space combat simulator was first released in September 1984. Word is: "Join us to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Elite with a series of events, competitions and media. We have brand-new wallpapers, Elite midi music and screenshots in the Anniversary Media section. During the anniversary we’re inviting you to chat to David Braben in a Twitter and Forums Q&A session, take part in contests and read others’ fond memories of the Elite universe - and we’d love to hear your own, whether they are ‘mostly harmless’ or ‘dangerous’..." It's also been over ten years since Elite IV was first brought up, or maybe not as a recent post on VideoGamer.com quotes David Braben saying: "There is absolutely tons of stuff about Elite online." The Frontier boss goes on to say: "Hardly any of it's true! Some of it is, but I'm not going to say which. We are working on it and it's very exciting."

Wow I remember playing this on the Commodore 64. Good 'ol lenslok copy protection was pretty spiffy:
