I'm loving the X52 so far. A lot of reviews up in the net for this product have stated that sometimes their X52 arrived broken or not working as intended. Guess I'm one of the lucky ones because everything works great so far.
First impressions is the I'm overwhelmed. I can pretty much map everything on this joystick in Elite. 
Here is a quick breakdown on the layout of the x52
http://www.saitek.com/manuals/x52_manual.pdf

While the joystick isn't that heavy, it came with rubber suction cups to install on the joystick and throttle to keep the x52 from moving all over the place.

The only other Hotas setup I had was an old thrust master I used to own a few years ago and the x52 definitely measures up

Will post more later, need more time playing smile

did you get the original or the pro, Kato?  I've found that for the most part, you can manage with the default control setup, but ran across a known issue.  the pinkie button at the bottom of the joystick grip is flaky and isn't picked up in game unless you have the x52 control panel up. 

I don't know if this is related, but you have to make sure you disable the clutch toggle in the x52 control panel, or the Boost command won't work in the game. It might be the same problem you're having.

I'll give this a try, thanks Tilt

@Caine,
I picked up the non pro version Caine. Thanks for the heads up in the pinky button, I'll see if I can get some work around going

Yeah I thought that Bungie wanted a somewhat "robot/AI" kind of performance. Sure it sounds funny without the filter but sounds fine with it on. The AI in portal would sound pretty weird without the robotic filter right?

fwiw, Firefall has been scratching my Destiny itch.  Gameplay is similar enough to keep me happy while I wait.

I can vouch for Hark that this is true. Very surprised how much this game has improved since closes beta.

But for me this weekend a combination of
BF4, Star Trek Online, and Firefall

Graphical differences between PS4 and Xbone?     Deciding which to preorder.

If only there was a website dedicated to this sort of thing Tongue

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2014-vs-destiny-xbox-one-beta

TLDR, basically on par, XB1 beta is only 900p but supposed to be 1080p at launch, some very minor gui enhancements on PS4.

No difference at launch

Sniper 3 - XB1
The Red Solstice - PC
Star Conflict - PC
Probably some Dawn of War 2 campaign

Tell us how Red Solstice is please.  I've heard good things, but I'd rather get it from somebody I trust.  smile

Very much a game still in beta, but already out many hours in. High learning curve, very deep once you get a few games played.

Saw Edge of Tomorrow and the new XMEN movie back to back on Father's Day. Enjoyed Edge slightly better, thought it was fantastic.

I hated terrorist hunt, it was a great concept, but the insta-pop behind you in a dead end you already cleared was bullshit.

Game looks like it has potential and R6 was where I met Kato so I'll have to kill him there again.

Can't wait to play this with the old and new gang. But whatever sidearm Hark will use will need an immediate nerf.
Also I like that this game SEEMS to encourage actual stacking and room clearing tactics.

I'm enjoying it after only a couple hours of play. GTA games (at least single player) never has grabbed me the way Assassins Creed or Far Cry has. It's fun, and that's all that matters to me. Oh and feel free to invade my game, I promise not to put up much of a fight slywink

Just the cinematography alone is worth watching the series.
