They probably realised they should never have abandoned it... There is a big market for this...

There was plenty of discussion about this over on Avsim yesterday, probably still is. I just hope they don't try to resurrect the DLC model they adopted with Flight. Return to the old method of including a good variety with the base package and let third party developers concentrate on extras.

The only reason FSX is still popular today is down to companies like PMDG.

If they can resist the urge to make it "locked down" and if they allow for 3rd party development then it should fly off the shevles

Will this be available only on Xbox? Or will there a PC version released too.

PC first then Xbox. I just hope they adopt the open to devs like FSX and X plane has.

I believe they're looking at a subscription though...?

Isn't that the new MS "thing" whereby you can play PC games on XBOX or visa-versa?

This is the Xbox Game Pass which is £7.99 per month. I use it on the Xbox Console and, to be fair, I have gotten quite a lot out of it. Apart from the new Ace Combat, I haven't brought a new game for ages.
If this gets added to it, I'd be delighted.

Reading that article and the MSFS website gives me hope that this could finally be a worthy successor to FSX

Is Microsoft Flight Simulator ok for a Laptop or is it for PC only? Would love a Flight Sim for my Laptop.

No problem running it on a laptop if it meets the spec requirements.

Yes, Microsoft invited a bunch of "content creators" to Seattle to try it, and this really looks to be revolutionary.

What do we make of this? The approach into Southampton at 10:00 is quite remarkable! :shock:
