hmm, bit skeptical about this one. No doubt its very pretty, but it looks more like a adventure experience rather than a hardcore systems orientated simulator. It will be interesting to see what Microsoft plan is, they have a lot of ground to cover to catch up with Xplane and DCS; also given 911, MH370 and a few others incidents are they really going to come back with a full on Simulator?

I see many people are skeptical, but I see no reason why the new flight sim won't build on the previous versions.

I don't know DCS, but Xplane is a very different flight sim. with MS, you built the flight model with the actual specs, whilst Xplane was more an engineering and prototyping system, with you inputting the aircraft detail design and Xplane would output the flight dynamics and spec.

What will be interesting to see is how they handle third party development, as this seems like it will be in the cloud. (no pun intended)
