A new Microsoft Flight Sim? I'll have to pick this one up for my dad. xD He used to love these games.

Thank god, no Xbox logo at the end.  I love the XBox but this definitely should not be an XBox game.

Put this on Steam and I might buy it.

Kinda glad this franchise is getting a reboot. With the serious "ESP" version of the old FSX showing a bit more of its internals it was kinda obvious that the code base was still running off some old old code. I think the franchise could use some fresh tech and a fresh team behind it. Hopefully something thats as good for serious simming and just messing around at the same time.

If I made games of what I dreamt... there would be too many porn games out there :P

The Flight Simulator franchise was actually one of the first PC games I have ever laid hands on. It's maybe second to Doom. I only have fond memories of it, and I'm glad that it's coming back!

Glad they are continuing the flight sim series. Seems they are trying to making the flght simulation genre more user friendly or at least, newcomer friendly. I know it was quite a chore to get a plane off the ground in FSX (kinda the point but sometimes yuou just want to fly a plane without the realistic controls).

 When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain you would not understand
This is not how I am

I have become comfortably bomb

"When I was a child" Wait... is that Samus Aran's voice I hear? 
 
Could be a nice little flight game... but not really pilotwings is it :D

When I was a child I dreamed I could.... DO A MOTHERFUCKING BARREL ROLL!!!!

Posted by senrat

7 hour flights taking place over a couple days and then screwing up the landing.... good memories

we need more barrel roll comments, because that's all I did as a kid

what a terrible font - the blockiness seems to emphasize the ight part, making me think of might or fight, which is clearly the opposite of what they're going for

When I was a child, I dreamed I could fly . . . 
Now that I'm forty and have a mindless and repetetive job, that dream has been crushed . . . 
At least there's this cool video game!

Hahaha, nice.

Great news! I was afraid that Microsoft was done with Flight Sims for good. Maybe they'll come back with a Combat Flight Sim in a few years too.

Yes, I love these games!

As a devoted fan of FSim since 2.0 version on my C64, I find it a bit worying that they got rid of "Simulation" in the title... time will tell.

Sweet. More time in a virtual Cessna. I hope they rehired or contracted the Microsoft ACE team that made the other Flight Simulators.

I'm glad Microsoft are still making flight sims... It's just a shame they are usually so much like flying an actual plane that for novices it is a really steep learning curve.
Posted by brotherlu

I want to learn how to fly a plane for real. Seems like the next stage after driving.

This feels like a futuristic trailer about some VR experience.

Kept waiting for "Simulator" to pop up, but no, it's just MS Flight. Probably a good thing since the word simulator scares people (including me).

Can I still crash my planes into the ground?
