I played all the X Games, but I have grown jaded by the fact that its more of a factory management sim than anything else. I like to be the lone trader/fighter in a small craft with an incentive to upgrade and explore.

Yeah, that's the way I like to play too. The ability (nay, effectively the requirement) to automate so much of the game makes it less appealing to me. I still enjoy the X games, but I'd rather have a Privateer style game, where I do all the trading myself.

You know that you actually CAN play X that way, right? Nobody is forcing you to set up factories and own 800 ships. It's there if you'd like to do that but you don't have to. Especially since Terran Wars, being a one man operation who takes bounties, missions, hunts pirates etc is extremely lucrative, probably even more so than actually trading/building an empire.

I believe they're going to take away the multiple ships in X-rebirth and just concentrate on you in one ship. (A la the first X.)

You can play that way in X, except it sucks. There's no incentive to upgrade your ship/weapons. If you do so, the enemies become stronger. If you never do it, enemies stay weak. That's a joke. Also, theres NO exploration. Every sector is the same, but it has a different look and the stations are at different areas... Freelancer had real exploration and progression.
