Elite Dangerous Beta now only £50

The Elite Dangerous Beta is now accessible to everyone, if you have £50 to spare.

If was previously possible to access the game, although you had to fork out a small fortune for the privilege. Now though, it costs just £50 and that also gets you a copy of the game when it is released, so not too bad if you want early access and to see the improvements over the early access version, which includes the number of star systems having been increased by a factor of ten to 55 and the map now consists of a 38,000 cubic light-year volume.

“The greater volume of Beta 1 space has an increased variety of celestial bodies, trading economies and star ports, and plays host to a large number of additional features and enhancements which together provide a richer gameplay experience over the whole expanded volume of space,” Frontier Developments wrote.

Anyone know if you can use a gamepad? I can't stand playing games like this with keyboard and mouse.

360 controller works apparently, seems the preferred method is a proper joystick though.

I'd say the real question is, this or star citizen?

It's more of a pre-order with beta access, sure plenty of people paid £50 for that with Destiny before they opened up the beta.
