So, is that another reason X3 is better than elite?And how many players per instance does X3 support? Ohhh.. that's right, it's a play-with-yourself game...
In all seriousness, single player is superior for game play imo. A lot of elites issues are due to the multi design which I disliked when it was announced and still do.
For my part though, I don't like the X games. The flight model and galactic model are sub par but I'm unsure of I played 3 or stopped at 2. Maybe I'll take another look. As to being better than ed, I seriously doubt it.
