I see the same on xbox people playing ed less and less.When ED first released, I'd start up the game and my friend list on the right side of the menu was full. These days it's often somewhere between empty and three people max at any given time. My PSN friends are still playing games, just not Elite.
My PSN friend list is obviously a small subset of the overall PS4 player base, so I'm curious, PS4 players - are you still playing Elite as your "primary" game, or have you scaled back your gameplay since you started, or have you "finished" the game and moved on?
To answer my own question, I still consider ED my "primary" game, though I have scaled back due those bugs I've bemoaned ad nauseam. This may all change in three weeks thanks US Black Friday (when I'll finally purchase games like HZD).
I have more or less stopped playing myself still lurking around the forums though.
Tryed it for a half an hour yesterday but got bored real quick and quit.
I think if we are really honest we can see things are not going well for this game in general.
I am going to start starpoint gemini 2 myself.
