Yes and no. I think there's a loooooong way to go and thing can definitely improve in that time.

Absolutely, but when I see people expecting GTA V level of detail on ground level they're setting themselves up for a big disappointment :P

To be fair DCS is big money too.
This will be a huge hit and they know they can name their price to a large extent. I am in!

Yes it's a niche, enthusiasts market!

However, the standard tier will be included in XBox Game Pass on PC

I think I'll stick with X-Plane for now. It is very expensive for what is a very limited set of airports, even in the deluxe version. It would also be good if the all-world realism extended to the $ to £ exchange rate.

You still get the other 37000 airports, it's just they're the vanilla airports - not the enhanced ones.

I'll give it a try with the Game Pass as I already have that and then decide if it's worth buying.

Yes theoretically every airport and airfield on the planet is usable.
