So it appears, that unless you like the "Games for Windows Live feature", you are not going to get much out of this . Never having tried the games for Windows live, I can't say whether it's an experience I would like or not. Sounds like you could have problems if you don't have a fast internet connection. ? But then, not having tried Games for Windows live feature, I wouldn't know. I thought it was something for X-box, but obviously not, if it will run on the PC. Just briefly looking at the website, seems like you have to download special software before you can use it. Has anyone here had experience with Games for Windows live ?
It's obvious to me that this product "Flight", is a totally new direction that MS have taken, and as such, I think I can safely say , after 25 years, the product "Flight Simulator" , -as we knew it, - has ended with FSX. From what I can see, It will still be a Flying experience, but not quite the same way that Flight Simulator was. Hence the reason I feel, that MS have called this product "FLIGHT", - and not Flight Simulator. It's going to be more for those that like "The Games for Windows Live feature."
Think I'll wait until I see what others say about the experience when they try it, before I dive in !!
With FLIGHT , The world of MS Flight Simulator has moved on - For Better or Worse ! Only time will tell.
