In its current state the console wouldn't have a chance. Even high end PCs are experiencing drops in FPs

Well, I'm not saying they will do that but it makes sense to me. By the time they get Odyssey working properly on PC (as we could be talking in terms of years) the PS4 and Xbox 1 may be considered obsolete for game and DLC releases, much like the PS3 and XBox 360 are now. I do understand the frustrations for console players though, not knowing what's going to happen with them.Tell them that. All they keep saying about ps5 and xbsx is they have "no plans" for them at all
How old is your Console ?What irk’s me is that Frontier have said a number of things that don’t stand up to any level of scrutiny.
- Get PC working ‘properly’ before focussing on console. - ‘Properly‘ is subjective. What one persons say is good, another will say isn’t. No matter how much Frontier will claim that Odyssey is good, 5, 10, 500 …. Forum posters will claim it isn’t. ’working properly is a statement without ending.
- no plans for PS5 or XSX - utter balderdash, of course Frontier have plans for the latter consoles. The problem is that they either have unrealistic plans or unobtainable plans. They were either trying to do stuff on console beyond the skill of the developers or with insufficient developers to complete it in the allotted time. Compound that with a decision to prioritise getting PC out of the mess it’s got into and any communication could be undermined by any action a day or so later - result ‘no plans’
- Every communication is PC. - I do not understand why Frontier would dedicate so much time and effort over the past x years on consoles and then completely ignore that they exist. Everything is PC - every community stream is on PC and all comms is about resolving Odyssey DLC issues on PC. The best way to dry up a user base - ignore them.
Time moves on, when the base game was released I was running an i5 2500k and a NVidia 980 a potato these days, Odyssey would not run on that now either.About as old as the release of the base game.

Odyssey doesn't run that great on my Ryzen 5800X and RX5700XT compared to Horizons, why would you think it should run well on a (comparatively) ancient console
It's been that way for a while though.What irk’s me is that Frontier have said a number of things that don’t stand up to any level of scrutiny.
Where has Braben not shown Integrity ?Because not everyone just takes it on the chin some people expect alleged reputable businessmen and Officers of the Order of the British Empire to have a little integrity
Depend on who you ask. The co-creator of Elite have some spicy opinion on that one. Google Ian Bell for more, if you want to know more.Where has Braben not shown Integrity ?
Irrelevant. He couldn't anyway. Even if he tried to (and he is smarter than that). To have a game/DLC/update on a console, you NEED to have sony and m$ to agree to release it on said console. It's the certification process. In its current state, Odyssey would NEVER pass cert. Period.He could have ported it to the consoles on release day and sold you something that simply would not work, that would have been a lack of integrity.
Software moves on, hardware gets old.
It's no different for PC's
Most people are like that, by a huge margin. The 'obsessed' types who play one game only, and then move to one new game vowing to me er come back tend to be very vocal, sure, but it's not how an average gamer works. Especially in the age of Gamepads and such. You can play the last few NMS updates, then check FS2020, go back to ED to enjoy Odyssey, move back to the new NMS updates in 2022, give humankind a punt, wait for Civ7 and Bethesda's new open world game, see what ED offers in 2024 and so on. Perfectly normal.Some players, like me, defect to other games and come back when there is an update or new content. I am happy to come back when Odyssey releases for consoles because there are plenty of other games to play in the meantime!
There are a lot of rumours floating around that EDO won't make it to console, if this is the case would prefer to know sooner rather than later as has been observed it is subjective as to when EDO will be considered "stabilised" enough to allow console development to begin. I used to be able to remain relatively positive regarding EDO but recently this positivity is starting to wane as though feedback has increased there is not really anything substantial that is able to counter said rumours regarding console being scrapped. Basically just wandering if there is any truth to these rumours, as have had prior responses from @sallymorganmoore have tagged you on to this cheers in anticipation......
