Elite: Dangerous Is Coming To Xbox One This Year

I'm a big fan of what Frontier Games are doing with Elite: Dangerous as I've written about before. The game is doing decently on PC with a community eagerly waiting for each update for the beta.

The pool of players is about to grow though. During Microsoft's GDC conference, it was announced that Elite: Dangerous would be making the jump to consoles, exclusively on the Xbox One. That version will be with us sometime this year. Here is a trailer to whet your appetite.

My one worry about this is how the control scheme will transfer over to a controller. There are a lot of buttons and functions to memorize in the game. I can't really conceive how you begin mapping that to a game pad. Good luck to Frontier Games with that.
