Does anybody know whether MS Flight does/will include joystick support?

Never mind, my question was answered here (http://flyawaysimulation.com/news/4317/microsoft-flight-behind-scenes-at-microsoft-studios/).

Thanks for the link Mike. It also answered a lot of questions I had.
NO RW weather. Later. Maybe.
No SDK=No freeware development. This alone abandons thousands of hobbyist developers. Not to mention the independent payware Devs.
I myself, spend as much time creating and fixing, as I do flying. FSX is here to stay.
All content within MS control. Contract developers better toe the line.
Gee, the sound changes when you open the door. Wow. That's adding some realism, isn't it.
I think that MS missed the mark. Totally. Without targeting the CORE, true simmers, it's just another arcade game.
The gamers will download the freebie, fly it, then forget about it. Sad for simming.
IMO, Hard core simmers are not gonna be happy with this. FSX will reign as the last good simulator.
I had high hopes for an expandable detailed environment. On the Rocks(Absolut...ly)...Don

I'll start a separate thread, but what did you expect? It was obvious two years ago that they were abandoning the traditional FS community, and it seemed very likely to me at the time that they would do roughly what they have actually done -- make it an online game. This is a wholly different and brand new class of product aimed at a brand new audience.

What about ATC? I haven't seen this mentioned at all. Anyone know if MSF will have this in it's initial release? Or, come to think of it, navigational aids, VORs? NDBs? GPS etc.?
