Apparently, I was just invited to the Beta.

Downloading and installing as I type this, let's see what Microsoft has to offer.

Kid you not, the day before this was announced I finally decided to purchase Flight Simulator X. Microsoft got my $30 and I find out the next day a better and free version is coming out in a few months time. Ugh. What a difference a day makes. : (

I was wondering when a flight sim would latch onto this idea. I mean, it's worked pretty well for trains. Now here's hoping that Microsoft can cultivate a community that will actually create content for this, and not alienate it by taking an unfair cut of the profits. I'm talking about those people and companies that do make money out of making very detailed models and landscapes and scenarios. And hopefully they won't do anything to stop any of the zanier things from showing up, too. As incredible as it is to have a fully modeled P-51, there's something very awesome in seeing a Star Destroyer hovering over San Francisco while you fly around in the dropship from Aliens.

I actually just got into the closed beta for this, so I'll have to take a look at it and see how it fairs.

Can't wait to try it. I played the other sims when I was a kid, but nothing has been interesting in years. I have my joystick ready.
