    Why do you find that hard to believe? I have already seen it running, they are going to demonstrate it at CES next week and have beta testers checking it out starting this month.

    Hope us old dogs can learn new tricks. In the few pics shown, clouds and scenery look awesome. Also appears like most hardware will give good results.

    My two cents.

    The base program is free to download and comes with Hawaii and one plane only. Their plan is to offer more aircraft, scenery and other add-ons through a built-in marketplace.
