How often are you checking the C64 shop for the appearance of Acornsoft Elite ?

I'm checking about a dozen times a day. I don't think the controls will work very well but I still want it badly. It would be great to mess about with while I wait for Warp Gate to eventually be released. Keep the faith !

Wow... I used to play Elite for 10 months on my C64!
Or was it my Amiga? Don't know anymore....

I have that emulator, too. Do they really release Elite for that?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

The devs put it up briefly by accident a few days ago. Then it was mentioned on in front page article about upcoming releases for the C64 emu. I doubt it'll appear for long if at all because of that ancient legal dispute between David Braben and Ian Bell. Here's hoping though !

Was Elite ever out for the Amiga? I can't recall for sure what I played it on either.
