Loved X3 and played for ages, steep learning curve but well worth it. Worth mentioning the ambient music was really good, and you really felt involved in the game. I remember lots of patching needed though on release so might wait a little while before I plunge in with rebirth. Was a bit scared on the 1 ship to pilot when I heard of it, but the 'VR goggles' is just a way around it. I suppose they didn't want to have to design cockpits for each and every ship!
