dcs black shark and dcs a10 are great super accurate simulators but they are not the same as ms fs. some people want to fly all over the world.

Give me a couple of Cessna light planes, a Cessna Grand Caravan, a Beechcraft of equivalent sizing, a Bombardier CRJ700, and some varied Airbus and Boeing airliners, and I'm fine when it comes to aircraft. I don't need more than 15-20 planes.

Now give me freedom to fly around the full globe, like in FSX, throw it all in an €60 retail package, and you have one copy sold.


DLC? Yes. As long as I can still pay the regular amount and get a decent selection of planes and FULL flight freedom.

with the way that games are priced today i would be willing to pay $120 for a completely new microsoft flight simulator. I know that i am not alone. the flight sim community loves flight simulator and we have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars on addons. but what i think is that they are turning this more into an arcade style game to get more people to play it. it really sucks because microsoft had a wonderful tradition with flight simulators.

I am pretty upset with the direction they are going if they are going to make this a game and not a sim. I know the FSX Blue Angels and the Virtual VFA-115 will not be going to it unless its a polished fsx. I hope im wrong when new stuff comes out but im really not that happy. When CES 2012 comes we will see more. 99% of the time it take 2-3-4 years before the game becomes popular because computers can run it and there are addons coming out

I would rather just download it and install it and the only way I can do that legally is though something like Steam.

But does not explain why you could not use GFWL, since they are doing a f2p download version then upgrades with their built in marketplace, which will be based on GFWL, most likely.

Unrelated but still: Why would you not hook up a disk drive?

I hope this doesn't mean the death of modding and addons with MSF.

If that... don't get me wrong, I like FSX just as much as the next guy, but I thought the whole "mission" thing made the simulator more of a "game" then anything else. In my opinion, FS9 was the last true flight simulator.

Lame. Also will Microsoft do us all a favor and kill GFWL already? No one wants it.
