Elite's daddy


As exclusively reported by gamesindustry.biz on Friday, David Braben has said that “it would be mad” for him and his team to not make Elite IV.Fans have been calling for a new Elite game for years. Before you get too excited however, no date was even hinted at, and it was only said that the game won’t come out until Braben is happy it’s going to be “different” enough.

He was speaking at the ‘A Life In Videogames’ event, where he also discussed how the industry has and has not matured over the years. He said that “in a financial sense we have arrived”, but also acknowledged that “we’re seen as the pipsqueak – we’re the poor relation”.

Luke plays lots of videogames, now and again stopping to write about them. He's the editor in chief at Critical Gamer, which fools him into thinking his life has some kind of value. Chances are, if you pick up a copy of the latest Official PlayStation Magazine or GamesMaster, you'll find something he's written in there. Luke doesn't have a short temper. If you suggest otherwise, he will punch you in the face.

    I’m sure I’ve heard Braben saying some odd stuff about the future of gaming, but we can’t all be accurate when predicting the future of games eh! Anyway, I think it’s about time he did another one, my rose-tints may still be on my face but after using Spore as a poor excuse for a supliment to Elite for a while now, I’d like him to make a start.

    I’ve been waiting for this for a loooooong time now.
