Elite: Dangerous Trailer

A new trailer from the Kickstarter Page for Elite: Dangerous offers a further look at gameplay footage from the upcoming space combat revival that Frontier Developments is seeking to fund. Word is: "Work-in-progress footage of live multiplayer gameplay in Elite: Dangerous showing a convoy escort battle, and discussion of the various roles players can take." Thanks nin via Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

Why would PC gamers want to play with gamepads? We'd just play in on consoles in that case. We're not console gamers. So no soup for them. Over half way into their 2 months KS - ridiculous in the first place - and just over half the funds? Noooooope. It's not going to happen.
Do you prefer mouse&keyboard? Even during the heyday of the sim genre, the people who actually had a proper HOTAS setups were few and far between. At best, people had a basic joystick with a thumb button and trigger, and 2-4 buttons on the base. A gamepad is no worse than this setup, and is VASTLY better than pure kbd/mouse.

FWIW, I replayed Freespace 2 last year on a dual analog gamepad, and it worked great. With some keyboard supplements, of course. Couldn't be arsed to replace my broken logitech joystick since it's basically been doing nothing but collect dust for the past decade or so anyway.
