Aw shit. Here. 256TB RAM, a core firstname.lastname@example.orgGhz and a GTXMegaForceSupreme99990Ti.
and instead of a digital cigar or hair comb they are giving all beta testers an additional free ship (your choice of the 5 new ships) as a thank you for the support.
Oh yeah and there will be 5 more ships in the final game than what was promised in the kickstarter
Looking forward to it. Probably a day one buy. I didnt opt in the beta as Im still lacking a proper TrackIR (it's on the way yay!) but I will definitely purchase Elite Dangerous as soon as it goes 'live'. I realise the game is kind of barebones but it will be a nice change of pace from DCS which is what Ill be playing 'full time'.
Ah you already ordered it. I was going to tell you to google EDTracker. Assembled it's about 50 bucks, if you buy the pieces on their own, figure about 30 bucks plus some soldering. It basically uses similar bits to the Occulus Rift to do accellerometer based head tracking and works really well for X/Y plane tracking (Z plane isn't doable with the chipsets involved apparently).
If you don't have TrackIR it's a good option.
