I posted this in the Console Gaming forum, but there's little activity there these days, so I'm posting here as well:

I've been looking forward to this one for a while, but the controller mapping looks daunting.

I've also read that the game does little to no hand holding to train up the new user.

If you're out there playing this on PS4, please post your thoughts/experience with this. I'm curious to know what to expect.

Thanks!

I'm a PC player. Indeed the game doesn't do much hand-holding. When I began play 2 years ago, I used this wiki site to get up to speed on almost everything in Elite:

http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/Elite_Dangerous_Wiki

It's also one of those games where I found it helpful to expect to learn by doing, and even learn by failing. I make the odd mistake, it sometimes costs a bit, but I move on and am better for the experience. The sense of learning to walk, then run, and then fly was, for me, a great journey.

I don't know about the console version but with the PC version there is a link on the log-on page to game tutorials https://community.elitedangerous.com/en/tutorial-videos

I think if I had bothered to watch them then some of my requests for help in the E:D section could have been reduced a little smile
