    Default Checked the Latest Microsoft Announcement About a New FS by 2020?!

    Think you all checked for that announcement by Microsoft that they should release a new FS by 2020 (both for the Xbox and Pcs). check at https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/conte...turns-For-Xbox, and also that vid https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ReDDgFfWlS4 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=McAkluYax7c
    Hope all the better, with a backwards compatibility preserved!

    That's one announcement that doesn't make me happy or hopeful.

    That might be a great step, from the vids I saw. Provided they keep most of the FS franchise's capacities and controls. And, like Microsoft always did, a backwards compatibility

    Adding some stills from one of the vid! Some are stating that Microsoft will set the standard for flightsim for the next 10 years (the time for which the new franchise is scheduled to last!) Looks true because pics are really amazing

    Photoreal worldwide. Looks great and with a weather modelization up to that!

    Most bad new! The new FS will be available only through the Microsoft Xbox Game Pass PC, a monthly subscription feature, a choice the community will have to react strongly to!

    It remains to be seen if it is intended to meet the needs of gamers or serious flight simmers.

    Add it to the rent you pay every month -and for those in the UK- the TV license.

    Sure!
    If that announcement really opens unto a new iteration of FS, that will be the cornerstone about which the simming community will decide!

    About that thread, on the other hand, I think that the premium place where to have some debate might be at https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/conte...turns-For-Xbox on that site (and more links likely to be published, I think). I just wanted to be sure that you simmers had gotten that most important new!

    I'm afraid I've been down this primrose path too many times in the past ten years to get excited.
    Yes, the video is very pretty and quite impressive but the proof, as they say, is in the pudding.

    Yes, completely agree. Let's wait and see

    But I'm sure a lot of simmers would be delighted with such a level of detail, the usual FS capacities (and more ) and a boxed version!
