I just pre-ordered my copy Monday. Been playing the combat demo the last couple days. Though limited it's a lot of fun. Looking forward to next Tuesday when the game launches. I've got my Hotas and pedals at the ready
I've been in since the Premium Beta so it's nice to see it finally hit retail.
Been having a blast the last week with the Oculus Rift DK2. Honestly it's hard to go back to a normal screen, especially for combat. It's not perfect (text can still be hard to see, chromatic aberation, noticeable screen door effect) but it really does suck you into the game.
Seriously, if you have a DK2, just grab a copy of Elite Dangerous, it's hands down the best implementation so far.
