Having another go at PS4 Elite Dangerous. Not enjoying it at all.

It's the controls - there are so fucking many. It isn't a game that should ever be played on a PS4 controller. It isn't at all suited to it.

Omg I played it for a while on PC and all I could do was fly into a sun.

I managed to land on a space station *once*.

Then promptly flew into another sun.

Its no better with a mouse and keyboard!

I didn't mind it on PC... though I never thought access to the entire universe would be so boring. At least there you've got a keyboard to assign functions to rather than cramming it all into a dozen or so buttons.

Might defect the point, but can you plug in a keyboard and use that on the PS4?

<edit>Guess not:

Will keyboards be supported? If so to what extent? Will it only be usable for the chat window or can we add key bindings?
Keyboards are supported for the chat window, most should be plug and play on the console. They cannot be re-bound. They can't be used for gameplay, but they can be used to type in system names in the galaxy map, enter your ship name, and type in the chat.

</edit>


Maybe they should have "dumbed" it down a bit for the controller.

See... I'm currently sitting here with one eye open, trying to read the thread, I've had a really good drink and...

PSVR <----- Changes things.... for the better!
