Which upcoming space-sim type game to buy?

There seems to be a number of these games in the works right now, some are closer to release than others, but if you could only pick one, what would you choose?

The ones I know of are:
-Star Citizen
-Elite Dangerous
-X Rebirth

I've seen a few others around as well but they're being done by smaller indie developers and I can't remember the names to them all though some do look rather promising. If you like one of these more than the big-name ones I listed feel free to mention them.

So, if you could only pick one, and considering multiplayer to be a low priority, which one would you choose?

I liked X3, but the single player experience gets dull pretty quickly and the NPC AI gets repetitive and easy to track.

I'll stick with EVE.

Seems the majority vote so far is X Rebirth, but I'd like to collect more data before picking a game myself.

If you have accepted Santa Christ as your lord and saviour, and are 100% proud of it, put this as your sig.

X:Rebirth and Star Citizen

Keep in mind you will have 2 years to enjoy X:Rebirth until Star Citizen gets released.
