    I can't remember playing a space sim-like game since Starlancer on Sega Dreamcast. Dunno if it was really a great game or not but regardless I loved it and played through it several times.

    Mass Effect temporarily satiated my desire for games set in space, though there was no actual piloting of space ships.

    How come consoles seem to ignore this genre of game? I'm always jealous when I see PCs getting these types of games.

    I know No Man's Sky "supposedly" might come to Xbone after a PS4 timed release but that's 1 game. I don't remember any being released on Xbox 360 either.

    ps: I'm sure the responses will be: well, get a PC. But I can't right now. I don't have the a desk or the space for a desk in my apt nor can I spend the money for a new pc at the moment.

    Have you played Kerbal Space Program? It's like the crack cocaine of space sims and you can play it on pretty much any office PC/laptop with a dual core CPU.

    Sorry I think you could be waiting a while for something on the X Box :(

    Anyone know if there's any plans to release star citizen on the consoles?

    Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if that could run it on low settings. There's a demo on steam if you want to give it a go.

    Kerbal isn't really a space game. Its space flight is incredibly arcadey.

    Doesn't make it any less of an amazing game though.
