    Hope this new MS platform is for PC's as well - but, if it's only for X-Box - well, I don't care if you can actually smell the jet fuel, I'm not buying it...

    Congratulations are in order!

    I downloaded my first aircraft from FlightSim in 1998 when I signed-up with AOL to join the WWW Army. What a joy it was to fly something other than MSFS default...

    I have FSX-Steam: A few aircraft I've D/L recently for FSX contain gauges from FS98!. I get a pop-up indicating those out-dated gauges and then I get a CTD. Why do freeware developers include such...

    Seems like a good price for all that as I've always thought Alienware was a bit overpriced (in part due to their eye candy PC towers). But get a 500gig SSD now rather than later.
