Thread: Big announcement from Microsoft!

  1. Default

    An important fact here, regardless the release date and content, the product is going to be continually updated. So, it gets better with time, regardless how good it is at release.

    Looks really great, but I’m still running Windows 7 and have no desire to go to W10.

    So, enjoy folks, but I’ll pass.

    Felt the same way. I hate Windows 10 but got it for FS2020 and also Prepar3D v5 needed it. I hate it so much I put it on a separate NVME stick.

    You can get Windows 10 and use it without activating it, or find those overseas keys for $20 or less. I found a unopened boxed retail Windows 10 Pro version on eBay for $60.00

    It’s not just that, it’s that my current FSX hangar is stocked with some great aircraft. I hate the idea of upgrading and having to wait for the same ones to be made...

    You could run both sims....

    There's some promise of a legacy mode to use FSX aircraft, but not going to hold my breath. We'll have to wait and see.

    So true. Just taking in the new experience, regardless of favourite aircraft, missing that and this etc is not relevant at this point. The extras will come in due time with future releases and 3rd party addons. The leap in technology for weather, special effects, water simulation etc is something everyone should appreciate with this release.

    I think the Alpha will become unavailable (no access etc) when they finally drop the NDA, & as you say, the sim will probably have been released by then anyway.
    For a moment, I thought it’d already happened yesterday as it took me a couple of try’s to connect.

    Yep, I would expect that access to the alpha will be cut off when it is released, if not before. Regarding the NDA, it's not uncommon for those to be left in place for years after the final version is released. However, at that point everyone will be able to talk about the final version all they want.

    You guys are so cheap and demanding its a wonder MS even bothers with you. WHO CARES if you have to upgrade to Windows 10??? ASFAIK you can still upgrade for free anyway. Even better just get a dedicated gaming rig. WHO CARES how many planes there are, or airports...I guarantee 99% of you fly ONE airplane out of ONE airport 99% of the time.

    With the scenery we are seeing I would buy this (VR version of course) if it had one cessna 172 and one airport.
