Thread: Future Prospect Of Flight

  1. #1

    Default Future Prospect Of Flight

    Hi All,

    Having been a Microsoft simmer since the introduction of FS 5, which I still have BTW, my big concern is that should Microsoft Flight not be successful, Microsoft may just think there is no longer any interest in Flight Sim programs and shelve the program altogether. Any remote possibility of an FSII in the future, would be eliminated.
    Personally I'm not interested in Flight even though I'll give it a try. I don't think it will remain on my PC for long.
    FSX has spoiled me and I will continue with it for the foreseeable future.

    I agree, for the most part.

    If this was my product line, I would've released a DLC pack simultaneously on product launch day that offered airliner simulation type stuff. They could've marketed as a very serious addon to a title that offered 'something for kids'. That would've saved face and made the community happy. Heck, even a bundling of existing airliners and airports with some 'career' software would be cool.


    Then again, I'm not a member of their team. Who knows exactly what their plan is. They've said it several times in interviews and public releases, but the thought process behind it is unclear. I'm assuming they know more about software than I do.
