Hopefully this one will get off the ground. No pun intended. There have been a few attempts to revive this one and the concept is still fine. Closest I've seen to elite in the modern era of gaming has been Eve, but that eats your life.

I have just taken a quick look at Star Citizen too. It got a LOT more funding than Elite.

I played both Elite and Wing Commander back in the 80's and WC wasn't a patch on Elite IMO. It never sucked me in the way Elite did. Having said that, both games are currently looking impressive but it will come down to gameplay and I'm definitely more excited about Elite:Dangerous at the moment.

I own a few ships in Star citizen. They've got I think 37 million dollars now? Still gaining over a million every few weeks. The dog fighting was due out in Dec but has been delayed so it should be out soon. Once that's out I expect funding to go through the roof, It's already the biggest funded game ever and with that money they could do pretty much anything you'd wanted :p
 
I saw Elite but not a fan, I prefer being able to walk through my ship etc.
